I wanted to look for a facial scrub that could replace the St Ives I normally use, and checked MUA to find this little bugger.
It was a little hard to find, but Ulta was the only place that had it. It was very cheap, about $2.29. The first time I used it in the shower, the scrub had a nice honey smell, really relaxed me. Unlike St Ives, the scrub was much more gentler with it's smaller scrub grains. It really helped get rid of the dead skin leftover from my acne drying up.
Now I wouldn't recommend you use this everyday on your face, especially if you have sensitive skin, which I don't have. However, as an alternative this does make a very good body scrub and with it's cheap price you can't go wrong.
Hmmm - kind of on the fence about this. Yes, its cheap, its "fragrance" is very mild (as in barely noticable) and I like the tube it comes in, but this scrub was too strong for my face (and I mean only the scrubbies - the rest of the product I like as it is nicely moisturizing). So, instead of using it on my face, I use it on my upper arms to keep the KP away as well as on the back of my thighs (same reason) - has definitely helped my upper arms; the back of my thighs are being a bit more stubborn. :( I have been using it this way for 2 weeks 4-5x/week.
I said I wouldn't repurchase because I'm not sure whether I would or not. If my upper arms continue to be this smooth, then I might just for that reason since its so cheap.
If your face is not very sensitive then I would highly recommend this product; I'm just sad I can't use it on my face.
You def can't use this product everyday. It's a little too abrasive on my skin. The smell is nice and it's super cheap. I'll prob just use it on my body since I don't think I'll use this on my face again
i bought this when my st ives apricot scrub got to be a little too harsh on my skin. i liked it well enough, it smells nice and does its job, but it seems to dissolve in water? like i'd wet my face, put the scrub on, and it would scrub for a couple seconds but then dissolve. the same thing happened when i used it on my body.
it's a good exfoliant, but the dissolving factor makes you have to use sort of a lot because you have to keep replenishing the scrubbies.
I bought this along with the mint mask. I did find the scrub a little harsh for my skin. My skin is very sensitive so there was a slight irritation left by it. Did notice a slight brightening affect nothing too major though. Not sure if i would re-buy.
I have combination skin with occasional breakouts, but this scrub is the bomb. It smells wonderful! Although it says that you can also use it in the shower, I wouldn't recommend it, because water could collect inside the cap, causing it to smell kind of funky.
Yikes, this is sooo scratchy!! It's along the lines of St. Ives Apricot scrub. Feels like sandpaper on my face. I might try to use it up as a body scrub but this will never touch my face again.
-The smell is amazing, and I would love to eat it =X
-The product isn't harsh on skin like other ones.
-It makes my skin feel really soft and smooth.
-It removes make up well
-Since I started using it my acne isn't as bad.
-It feels really really nice when you massage it on your face.
-I also use it on my shoulders and chest.
-It is around $3, and it is so worth it.
I would love to repurchase again :]
Works well to brighten my complexion yet dries me out. However it is dirt cheap and still better than St. Ives scrub IMO as the grains are not as harsh.
I really like this product. I stopped using scrubs for a while because I found that they can be quite harsh on my acne-prone skin, but I find that this one is very gentle and moisturizing. I do have somewhat oily skin, but I tend to dry out after washing my face with most cleansers. This scrub makes my skin very smooth and hydrated, so I'll definitely repurchase. My only gripe about it is the packaging, its kind of hard to dispense with the squeeze-tube style idea, and the screw cap collects water in it if you leave it in the shower. But other than that, overall great product. :)
