I relaly like this stuff, though there are definitly better exfoliators out there. I like the smell and its makes my face relaly soft after. however, sometimes i still have dead skin after using it, which is annoying. so although its not the greatest exfoliator, it does smell nice and leavs skin very soft and smooth
Where have you been my whole life? I just started using this- I've had a very good run with SSC Glycolic cleanser- but still wanted to give this a try, and boy am I glad I did!
It comes in a little tub and reminds me of a mold experiment I did in grade school! You tear off a little chunk and mix it with water... then apply to your face and enjoy the wonderful lavendar smell! It really reminds me of the burts bees scrub! Deliciousness! It scrubs nicely w/o being too harsh and wowo does my skin feel so good afterwards! This is a keeper for me *along with my ssc g.cleanser*
I love this product, used it a few days ago at a friends house and went out and bought it today. I think this product is for people with dry or dry/normal skins, it might be too moisturising for some people to use twice daily. Also this product should not be used as a scrub, it is a cleanser with scrubby bits not a scrub.
The packaging isn't great but it does the job and i'd rather not pay extra for a fancy box that i'll throw away.
A note to the reviewer below, its a good idea to read the insutuctions before using a product, you take a small piece and mix it with water in the plam of your hand to make it liquidy. The reason its in a solid form is to cut down on preservatives.
I would give this a 5. I just got hold of AOBS today, and I cant wait to use it during bath. After I removed my make up, i picked up pea size amount and smooth them on my skin. And I went on to wash my body before i do mild scrubbing and rinse off. My skin is sensitive, so i was quite worried this might sting my skin abit, but it didnt, and no redness also. It left my skin feeling soft and smooth, not tight at all. You called it a scrub? I think not. It's more than scrub. Just one great product. 2 thumbs up! Will repurchase.
It isn't a spectecular looking or smelling product, but it works fantastically on my sensitive skin. I agree on the packaging though, it's terrible.
Mmmm perfection in a cleanser!! This suits my combination skin to a t! It exfoliates, cleanses and moisterizes at exactly the right levels to be usable morning and night and is totally affordable for me. I love the fact that it contains lavender and rose extracts - both great for clarifying and soothing the skin. I would prefer this if it came in better packaging, however...
I think I love this cleanser: it's mild enough plus it does a gentle scrubbing. it smells wonderful and leaves my skin super silky, and I don't need to put a moisturizer afterwards.
I took one lippy off because now that i'm almost at the end of the product it has started smelling strange and even to separate in the container... strange... maybe it's gone off.
(But I already have a new one waiting for me in the shelf!!)
I love this scrub! It smells wonderful and I like the consistency of the mix-it-yourself paste. It's not too harsh, but works well to make my skin glowy and soft. I am not irritated by any of the ingredients. Of course, the packaging could be improved, but I'm not complaining.
I bought this scrub after reading a review in the Lush catalogue. I used it for about two weeks and was very pleased with it until I started breaking out on my forehead. Thinking it was time for something new, I put the cleanser away for a few days and switched to a different cleanser. When I opened the tub again, the scrub had completely dried out and it was turning a violent shade of green around the bottom. I tried washing my face with it once more but it left my face tight and burning. I threw the rest away. What a waste!
Great cleanser, but the packaging is terrible. Also, I personally cannot take the scent of this. Too bad because it works beautifully.
