Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarine Orange Scrub

The one I just purchased stated Radiant Skin but it goes under different names. I first tried their Apricot Scrub, but that was too harsh, and I don't want broken capillaries on my mature sensitive skin. So when I heard the Pink Lemon & Mandarin Scrub was the more gentle version I brought it. Well ultra gentle but probably TOO gentle as its ineffective - at least as an exfoliator. Its basically a moisturizing creamy cleanser with lots of tiny soft pieces in it that do not scrub. Strong fresh vaguely bitter grapefruit scent. It leaves a thick oily feeling film on the skin that moisturizes my skin, but also creates a layer that sticks down the surface layer of the skin. This means it doesn't release surface cells to smooth and polish skin, it makes them clump and clog together and makes my skin look dull. The exact opposite of a scrub. I recommend it as a daily cleanser for dry mature skin. But not sensitive skin as there is a lot of fragrance in it. I'm still looking for a cheap scrub. So far my favorites are Fresh Sugar Face Polish, or Ole's Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub with AHA's. But they are pricey.

Calming Daily Chamomile Cleanser

This cleanser looked absolutely made-to-order for my skin type, which is very sensitive, dry, and prone to redness and breakouts. The amount of great reviews on it was encouraging, so I had no hesitation buying it. Unfortunately, it was not calming at all, but just the opposite. Right after rinsing it off, my face looked red, blotchy, and irritated. On the plus side, the price is extremely affordable ($4.49), and it cleans very well. If you don't suffer from extremely reactive skin, you may enjoy this cleanser.
