I love this mask! I've tried the st.ives and nothing has done the trick quite like this! lately ive been using it twice a week with my olay pro x cleansing brush and my skin always feels soooo smooth after. I have oily skin so this scrub combined with the brush takes off all the dead skin and has really unclogged my pores

This facial scrub is absolutely worth every penny! It is between this one and the St. Ives brand Green Tea facial scrub. I love the scent of sweet honey and oatmeal. If scents bother you, you might want to try one of the other ones.
The scrub itself is more abrasive than the St Ives scrub. It has larger particles. But I do believe that the oatmeal draws out impurities and unclogs pores, as I see it upon use. I like the idea of honey to replenish lost moisture. After all, raw honey face mask is one of my HG cures to really bad break outs.
You only need a little bit to cover the entire face. And the product is super cheap for the amount that you get in the tube. 6 oz tube for around $6. It lasted me 2 months so far and I am a quarter of the way through.
Love it! Highly recommend!

I bought this at my local grocery, mainly because I was in desperate need of a scrub and I've loved most of the Queen Helene products I've used in the past. I always use this in the shower after gently cleansing my face.
This is a solid product. It doesn't smell very good to me, it has an earthy-oatmeal scent. It's not rough to the point where it scratches me, but is a pretty abrasive scrub (which I like). I only need a dime size to do my entire face, and I've had this product for three months, use it 3-4 times a week, and have plenty left in the bottle. The scrub does what it's supposed to do - it removes all my dead skin and helps keep bumps at bay. (I like to use it to prevent ingrown hairs also.)
I left off a star because of the smell, and it doesn't do much of anything to soften my skin.

I picked this up at Family Dollar recently and was really impressed. I have sensitive skin and can not use anything too harsh, but know the importance of exfoliating regularly. The St Ives scrubs are too harsh for me. This smells fantastic! Like cocoa to my nose, i adore the smell. Its a mild scrub with smaller beads so it doesnt irritate me. It does contain sulfate, fragrance and parabens, so it's not something i would use all that often. but i dont need a scrub more then once or twice a week anyway, so in that sense, I havent ruled it out of my routine since it hasnt irritated me. I tend to use this once or twice a week and once a week i use my dermalogica microfoliant. At about $3 or $4 you cant beat the price. the squeeze tube is ok, but undoing the cap is a bit of a hassle in the shower. the one thing I'll add for this review, is that some people are raving about the honey in this being so good for the skin, but at the cheap price I'm pretty positive this isnt raw honey, so you arent getting the honey benefits you would from true raw honey. see my raw honey review for more info on that. no harm, just no real honey benefit.

Queen Helene products are simply amazing! I have come to really love and enjoy everything I've tried thus far and hope to find some more to try out. This scrub is really great and here's why.
~~~~~~~~~~ PRICE & AVAILABILITY ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Queen Helene products can be found in few places. They are not yet widely available but hopefully one day will be. I can find my QH products at Dollar General, Sally's Beauty Supply, and Family Dollar. The price is super affordable. Generally priced around $2-3 which is great considering some facial products are very expensive but this affordable product works great.
~~~~~ SHADE & FORMULA & PERFORMANCE ~~~~~~~
Queen Helene Oatmeal n' Honey Natural Facial Scrub is a great scrub for most skin types. Make sure to spot test before going wild all over just in case because importantly, we all have different skin types & needs. So my opinion & results will not be the same as someone else. This claims to be " a gentle cleansing natural fiber scrub w/ smoothing oatmeal & honey. It draws out impurities, unclogs pores & removes dry dead cells from the surface of skin. Honey helps to replenish lost moisture & protects skin from harsh elements. Skin will look fresh & healthy & feel soft & smooth. Apply daily or as often as desired. Ideal for use in the shower too." I use this once or twice a week depending on how my skin is. This is good for those with normal, combo or oily skin. I do have dry skin & still can use this w/out any issues of it over drying out my skin any more. Actually it helps to take away any flaky spots. This makes my skin feel smoother. I will always apply a thick moisturizer on my face after cleansing bc of my dry skin. It helps my moisturizer sink in better & also my makeup looks more even since I don't have any flaky spots. The formula or consistency is a very thick heavy cream like texture with larger granules of oatmeal throughout. If you have tried their Apricot Scrub, its similar but less harsh as the size of granules are. I love the smell of this!! It smells of delicious honey & oatmeal. It smells so yummy going on. The scent does not linger after rinsing it off. I apply in the shower. I use a nickel size dollop, then using my finger tips, rub in tiny circular motions to rub it gently. I let it sit for a minute then rinse away. I don't smell anything afterward. This is a really great affordable scrub similar to more expensive brands.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PACKAGING ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Queen Helene Oatmeal n' Honey Natural Facial Scrub comes in the standard QH plastic squeezable tube. The tube is big enough to last awhile. The tube is basically white with oatmeal like coloring. Product name & claims on front as well on the back w/ directions & ingredients. The lid is also an oatmeal/brown color. Easily twists on/off. This squeezes easily, no hassles. The hole is big enough to disperse enough product w/out wasting a whole bunch either. fl oz of product which is alot. It may not seem like alot but its def alot. Only a nickel size is needed. I typically find my bottles with weekly use or so, will last a few months. Its not the prettiest or most unique packaging but it simple & effective which to me, is enough. I'd rather have a pump but i think w/ the formula it would clog up or there would be issues.
Overall, if you have not tried this product or Queen Helene, give one of their products a try. This one is really amazing! I also recommend Mint Julep Mask for those w/ more acne prone skin. I use it as area spot treatment. I highly recommend this scrub & will most def repurchase over & over!

I have been wanting to try this closer to Spring/Summer because I have been using the Cocoa butter scrub for the cold months and i adore it. So at Sally's I was going to get the Cocoa but they were out.
So I got this since I love oatmeal and honey. I use honey in the warmer months on my skin anyway and the oatmeal has always been good to my skin so I thought this would be great to get.
Well for 4$ it is excellent! I really like this scrub. I use Retin A so this is perfect because it removes the dead skin without over scrubbing. In the Spring/Summer I am always more oily. Yet this scrub seems to be keeping my skin soft,smooth, and clear.
I really like the scent and when I use it in the shower i let it sit a bit. When I rinse it's like new skin. It's not rough on the skin either which, is important for me because my skin is very delicate. For the price you get a great amount and it works......luv simple as that!
Would I repurchase totally and I recommend it. It's a goodie:)

This is a godsend! I bought this on a whim at a health store while I was on vacation and was extremely surprised how well it works. It really doesn't smell that great, but you get used to it after a few uses and don't really notice it afterward.
I don't think I've really had a favorite face scrub/wash before I tried this - I was always trying something new because everything I used before was so-so, but with this I know I will repurchase and continue to repurchase. My skin feels so soft and amazing after this! Wow!

I purchased this at Sally's for around $5. Amazing product! I use this before I apply my mint mask. If Im wearing makeup, ill remove my makeup first, cleanse my face with aveeno's ultra calming foaming cleanser and then use this oatmeal scrub. I personally love the st ive's apricot scrub but my skin has been clear so I wanted to check out a scrub that didn't have salicylic acid/benzoyl peroxide. The beads in this scrub are so fine yet they get the job done. I'm not a big fan of the honey scent; it reminds me of baby powder. But if the product works, then It's not a big deal. Definitely would repurchase! :)

Love this brand. Never tried anything from them that I do not like. Honey is great because of its antimicrobial properties and is great at healing acne. Oatmeal is also a wonderful skin care staple. This scrub combines the two in a convenient tube. Great exfoliation, gentle enough for every day, smells awesome, and like all Queen Helene products, easily accessbile and affordable.
