I looove this scrub. I have sensitive, acne prone skin and this stuff leaves my skin glowing and soft. The "film" on it leaves on your skin is from the grapeseed oil, which is a light and moisturizing oil with many beneficial properties. It absorbs into the skin about 10 minutes after I use it and leaves the skin nicely moisturized. I would rather have this than have my face stripped of moisture like with some other scrubs. I find I don't even have to use moisturizer after I use this if I don't want to. The only reason I didn't give it 5 lippies is because the peach pit granules can be harsh if you aren't careful. I like a scrub with jojoba beads better but I would (and have) repurchase this scrub.
I've heard good reviews about Burt Bee's in the past, and since I'm trying to get away from all the chemicals in facial cleansers, I decided I'd give this scrub a whirl. At first the residue scared me. I have oily and acne prone skin, and it felt weird. However, it left my skin glowing, and I didn't break out the next morning. I've been using it consistently for about a week and a half now, and I love that I don't really even have to moisturize, because the scrub does that for me! I've also noticed that my skin seems less oily, even though the product does have different good-for-you oils in it. Maybe my skin's finally getting the moisture it needs!
I'm used to having to buy a lot of different products to manage my skin, so the price (7.99 at Wal-Mart) wasn't too bad. I will probably purchase this product again.
I liked this a lot at first. I really like the scent, the naturalness and how moisturizing it is. But after awhile I start to fear that it is scratching my skin, the little scrubbies are pretty sharp!
why is this so hard to wash off! it took me about five minutes to get the actual scrub part of it off, and even then my skin still felt oily. the smell is amazing but i think the packaging is sort of old-ladyish. other than that it made my skin very soft and glowy. this is the first scrub i have ever used, and i may switch it up next time.
I used to use Lancome microderm abrasion scrub but the particles were so small that my pores were clogged with that stuff and it hurt! so I went to Origin's modern friction because it used rice and too big to clog. I loved it but could not afford after awhile. Like $30. So I had to find an alternative. I tried this for $8 at Osco. I was amazed at how good it is! And you don't have to moisturize afterwards. My large pores actually seem smaller after weeks of use. It makes you look vibrant, really gives you a natural glow with continued use. I will never spend more money when you can get this at your grocery store!
I love this cleanser. All the negative reviews have me baffled--had I read them first, I might never have discovered much less tried this amazing exfoliant! I don't find the scrub too harsh at all, makes me feel as if it's actually working, removing dead skin cells! It's never irritated my skin, never has broken me out, never has left my skin red or blotchy. It's just amazing. What other describe as "greasy", I would describe as moisturized. It's a natural product and therefore almost reads as a baking recipe with all the natural oils and other ingredients (coconut oil, grapeseed oil, willowbark, peach, white ginger, etc). This is the only exfoliant that I've ever used that has actually left my skin not only glowing but brighter--I can instantly see the results. I use this mainly at night, every couple of days. I never moisturize after (I have normal skin-not dry, not oily, no T-zone) unless I follow up the scrub with a mask-which most times I do since my pores are nice and open. I would definitely suggest giving this a go before dismissing it all together, and best of all it will not break the bank!
I don't like this scrub at all. Yes it leaves my skin fairly "glowy" after. But, it also leaves a weird, oily residue to achieve that glow. I don't think it deeply cleans or scrubs anything. But, it topically does.
I found this really harsh, and strangely clingy/hard to wash off. Ended up using it on elbows/etc - just not my face! Again, I find Burt's Bees products overrated.
I don't hate this product but I don't love it either. The ingredient list is amazing, but the results are just mediocre. The scrubby bits are too harsh for my face; they are big and scratchy, and I prefer finer scrubs. It does leave a residue after washing, but it doesn't bother me, and in fact, keeps me from having to use a heavy moisturizer for my dry skin. It hasn't had any effect on my blemishes, good or bad. An okay product, but I probably won't repurchase because it isn't what I look for in a facial scrub.
This feels nice on when I'm massaging it on my face and feels like it would be exfoliating but it leaves my skin feeling so tight and dry. I'm glad I got it in a kit because I will never purchase this again.
