Very natural polish. Won't hurt skin if the massage is gentle.

On me, it's not as perfect as the reviews say. After using it, my skin keeps greasy. It's not the simple moisterized feel, but a bit greasy or oily that makes me wanna wipe it off all the time.

My skin is combination. I think for oily skin type, it feels more uncomfortable.

But I'd rather keep purchasing it when it runs out, as it is a product to keep there because you will always need it anyway.

My combination skin will normally take a fair bit of abuse before showing any signs. Recently however, I had an at-home-peel incident (entirely my own fault) and my skin is very sensitive and prone to peeling and dry spots. So I went in store to check the rose range and honey face mask (both lovely) after reading lots of great reviews about them being gentle and effective. I received a generous sample of this from the SA but I was reluctant to try a scrub for fear that it would be too intense for my fragile skin. My skin is largely back to normal so I finally gave this a go and it was nice - I'd definitely use it again but I'm not feeling any need to rush out and buy a full jar of it either.

I used this on freshly washed damp skin and massaged in until all the granules disappeared. Then I left it to sit on the skin for 15 minutes before washing off. I found 'scrub' to be an over-statement of what this product does. There are tiny non-scratchy crystals suspended in a fairly thick jelly-like substance and despite using the whole sample (it could easily have stretched to 2 - 3 uses) all granules disappeared within 10 seconds of soft massage. It felt lovely on the skin and quite invigorating but not terribly scrubby. I really needn't have waited to use this product. I expect it is gentle enough for sensitive skin to use regularly. As a mask it sticks to the skin very well and didn't drip or slide or otherwise annoy me. I was able to rinse this off without needing a cloth which was nice and my skin felt refreshed and soft.

I was surprised by the smell - I expected it to smell sweet or sugary but it smells almost exactly like the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser with a touch more citrus. It is not anything to write home about but does smell pleasant and what you'd expect from a pricey natural led brand.

I notice a little more glow and plumpness after using this and absolutely no dry spots. For comparison I found this to be closest to the Ren Glycolactic but more plumping and less exfoliating. If you're frightened off by the word 'scrub' like I was, don't be, this is extremely gentle. But if you're looking for a good scrub/resurface treatment - I doubt this will do the job. Overall my skin looked nice afterwards and this was a lovely product to use but I didn't see any long-lasting results. This might be great to give skin a little pick-me-up right before a special occasion especially if you want to wear less foundation without looking wan. If you have the chance and are so inclined, I would definitely recommend trying it but it's not cheap and the results can definitely be duped so I wouldn't say its a must have item.

This scrub was very average for me, but to be fair, it isn't right for my skin type (normal/ combo and at times acne prone). I used it several times, and although the scrubbing granules (sugar) seem large enough (in a yummy lemon and brown sugar scented paste), they all dissolve completely after barely rubbing my face. As a result, I didn't feel much exfoliation at all - just slimy oils left on my face, which is a feeling I can do without. I won't try this again, but if you have dry skin, ask for a free sample at Sephora.

This scrub is...okay. It's not my favorite, but it also doesn't wreck my sensitive skin. It smells heavenly and feels great, but I've used better exfoliators that were more emollient than this one. A lot of people complain about the film this leaves behind, but my skin is so dry that it just sucks it right up...and I secretly love things that leave behind a layer because of this exact reason.

It's a good manual exfoliator but it just doesn't beat a homemade concoction of olive oil, sugar, ACV, and honey for unclogging and moisturizing simultaneously. As someone who despises do-it-yourself skincare and always gravitates toward luxurious packaging and scent a la Fresh, this is really saying something! I don't feel like the supposed "actives" in this scrub are worth the price or the trouble of leaving it on. Maybe if you left it on all night, but...I'd rather just use a concentrated vitamin C serum post-scrub.

Above all, though, I just think that my skin type is much more compatible with chemical exfoliation, and I will go back to my old standby scrub: Murad Age Reform AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser. It's still got the beads to make me feel like I'm actually doing something, and it leaves my face soft and hydrated.

The absolute best thing about this mask is that one tub lasts FOREVER. The jar seems small but a little goes a long way. It's worth the crazy price tag, as far as amount of product goes. I've been on the same tub for months (which is kind of a bummer because it's not my favorite, lol).

LOVE IT!!! This scrub is fantastic. I have dry, sensitive skin and I find using the clarisonic type brushes to be a bit too harsh on my face so I decided to use this three times a week instead...I smush it on my face and let it sit for around ten minutes. Then I gently scrub and rinse it off. Smells sweet and lemony, is natural and does more than just a physical scrub. It is expensive but feels so luxurious. It's like a home spa experience. The jar is pretty and heavy and a little bit of product goes a very long way.

I agree this is the best exfoliator I have ever used. Maybe it's a bit soon to review after first time use of this product but I absolutely love how my skin feels afterwards.. so soft and moist. It has gentle scrub, I believe 3 times a week is safe to use. Price wise is reasonable, compare to what I used before, which is Tracie Martyn Enzyme Exfoliant. I loved that product but it's just too expensive for a smaller jar and turns out that Fresh gives me slightly better after-feel. A must-have, definitely!

I have used this 3 times now and I absolutely love it! It is a gentle scrub, and does not tingle like some other scrubs I have used. However, I still love the way my face glows afterwards. I use it 3 times per week. I think it is gentle enough for everyday use. Love it!!!

This is the absolute best face exfoliator I have used, although I think it's something you could easily make at home using honey, sugar and strawberries. I got a nice sample of this at Sephora and I will purchase as soon as I am able to. It smells amazing and is so finely granulated and it just sinks into your skin. My skin feels so smooth and moisturizer after I use this scrub. Love it!!

I am a skin junkie and this is one of the best face exfoliating mask i have ever tried.
I'm from the Philippines and Fresh products are not available here. I had to buy it online. So in short, I ordered this products without smelling it and based my decision on the raving reviews.

When it arrived in my doorstep and used it the same day. I usually do my face masks routine at night time. Its my ME time. I was glad to see that the $55usd jar i paid for is big and can see that it would last a long time even if i use it at 3 times a week.

After washing it off, I was surprised with the greasiness I felt. I continued washing the mask off and wipe my face with a dry towel. Only then I felt the magical effect of the Sugar Face Polish Mask! I would definitely purchase this again when I ran out.

As for fresh products, now I'm keen on trying out their other products!
