Review of Fresh Sugar Face Polish with Strawberries by cinderly
I adore this product. I've used it for several years, now, and it works, and works well, without irritating or drying out my dry, sometimes fussy skin. Like most of the Fresh Sugar line, it's lemon-scented, but the scent here is light and generally dissipates quickly after rinsing the polish from my face.
Because it's a polish, rather than a traditional scrub, the grains are very fine. This translates to a gentle, subtle retexturizing effect for me, provided my face is just damp when I put it on; the slightly waxy moisturizing part of the action happens only if I leave it on for 5-10 minutes after applying.
It's gentle enough that I can use it several times per week, smells wonderful, and leaves my skin smooth, soft, and oh-so-subtly glowing. The standard-issue container lasts me about a year, making the price point a bit more tolerable. While I've yet to have a mishap, have a heavy glass jar in my shower does make me nervous and the death-grip I use to hold it during use is probably not particularly good for my hands.
Even with concerns about price and packaging, this is my desert-island facial product - if I could only have one thing to maintain my skin (after sunblock), I'd choose this.
Pros: lovely scent, gentle & effective exfoliation, retexturizes skin, lasts forever, leaves me glowing
Cons: price point, glass-tub packaging
