Birchbox Breakdown

It’s probably safe to say that Bettie Page—1950s pin-up model and quite possibly the inspiration for the word “betty”—was comfortable in her own skin. With the sultry siren in mind, holistic skincare line betty&ko™ created this multipurpose facial cleanser (and boy, does it mean business). Using nothing but the purest, most natural ingredients, it leaves behind a smooth, radiant complexion that you’ll be more than happy to show off.

How it Works

Sugar cane extract and oat kernel meal exfoliate, while kaolin (a naturally occurring soft clay) nourishes. Vanilla and almond oils moisturize and soften—and leave a deliciously sweet scent. This doubles as a makeup remover (just be sure to avoid your eyes).

How to Use

Apply a small pinch of the polish to damp face. Using your fingertips, gently buff in small circles over entire face, then rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract*, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Meal*, Kaolin, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil,Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Oil. (*certified organic ingredient)

Gross smell & seems homemade

This product has a weird texture, hard to explain but it seems like a homemade inconsistent paste that has lumps in it, not to mention the stuff smells gross.

Pleasantly surprised by this product!

I really enjoyed using the Betty Polish - the smell is great. And after using it, my face feels super moisturized, almost dewey. I also found that a little bit goes a long way so my sample lasted for 6 washes.

Saving my Birchbox Points...

This has to honestly be the best thing I've ever had the luxury of cleaning my face with. Its exfoliating without being so ruff and gets rid of dead skin easy. Afterwards I do feel all glowy and my skin doesn't have that tight feeling that other face washes leave. It smells great and is something that even my boyfriend says makes a nice difference. DO WANT NAO

Hate the smell

Holistic is always hit or miss. I could not stand the smell of this. I didn't use it on my face because I have sensitive skin, but I used it on my body as an exfoliant. It worked well, I just wish that it smelled better.

good

I thoroughly enjoyed this, I make my own, not as corse but this still was great. I loved the smell . It left my skin feeling soft. It was even gentle enough that I used it on my face once and didnt hurt my skin.

Meh..

To be honest, this stuff was in a tiny unlabeled bottle. That majorly creeped me out, and didn't make this seem like a legit product at all. I worry that tainted my thoughts of it.

It was okay - but I've made better at home.

Disappointing product

This was actually the first Birchbox sample that I ended up really not liking at all. I'm somewhat sensitive to odors and smells (very easily get headaches from strong scents), and although this product did not give me a headache, I found the odor almost sickly sweet. I also found it difficult to easily use this product - the exfoliating crystals were almost too large, and when I applied to my face, it kind of coagulated into a gloppy mess. I washed it off immediately and sadly, ended up tossing it.

Was okay, scent was nice

The scent was nice, and the scrub did what it was supposed to do at that moment (my skin felt soft), but to me it wasn't any better than other scrubs, not worth the price.

Quality Scrub
Sampled

I definitely love the scent of this body scrub, and it does a great job of sloughing off the dead skin but not drying you out. I wished that the scrub itself would dissolve more, as I'm not a huge fan of the remnants it left behind on the bottom of my shower, but it is effective and a great product otherwise.
