After exfoliating with this versatile scrub, smooth on a layer of Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream to keep your skin protected.

Yu-Be

Birchbox Breakdown

The Japanese are famously particular about their bathing rituals, so it’s only natural that they love this gentle face and body polish. Whether you use it during a five-minute shower or a luxurious soak in the tub, the granular scrub binds with water to clear away skin’s topmost layer of dead cells and prep it for moisturizer. Free of both pore-clogging ingredients like petrolatum and skin-irritating dyes and fragrances, it will invigorate your senses with its light herbal scent.

How it Works

The fine, grainy texture of this light brown scrub comes courtesy of rice bran, which works in conjunction with bamboo to exfoliate skin without stripping it dry. Ginger and ginseng extracts balance out skin’s natural pH levels, while green tea, geranium oil, and a mild dose of camphor soothe away irritation. When you add a splash of water, the scrub turns into a foamy lather that leaves your skin perfectly smooth and polished.

How to Use

In the bath or shower, apply a quarter-size dollop to your palms and add water. Rub your hands together to turn the scrub into a lather, and massage into the skin of your face and body.

Soft shiny skin!
Purchased

This stuff is way better than your basic apricot scrub. The mixture is finer and foams up slightly, really getting into your skin with minimal pressure. The result is smooth skin with a lovely shine... I first used before my wedding and everyone said my skin was soft and fresh looking. I really like this scrub.

Excellent product!
Purchased

I love this stuff. It is a good replacement for Pernox--and you can use it all over. That's a great feature. Will purchase again for sure!

Great Multitasker

So they are right, this isn't the fru-fru sweet perfume smelling scrub. This scrub is has a light fragrance, that almost can't be described, don't worry, I think it can't be described because it doesn't hang around long enough. What it lacks in smell it makes up for in performance. The scrub it not to harsh but just enough if you like to exfoliate a couple of times a week and actually feel a difference to your skin. The best part it that it suds up so you can wash & exfoliate at the same time. And an even better part, my husband loves it too so I do not have to buy a separate product we can both use. On a side note, he works outdoors, with dirt and this is the best thing ever to keep his nails & cuticles clean!

Good for Body, Rough for Face

This is a great product for body exfoliation, but a little rough for my face. I think it is the walnuts on the ingrediant list that cause me a little redness and irritation. But, my legs, elbows and upper arms have never been smoother.

Economically priced so you can slather it all over and a little bit goes a long way.

You'll Be Loving Yu-Be!

I love this Skin Polish!!! I first got this as a sample and hurried to buy the full size product. I use it all the time in the shower and think it is great!!! It may make the bottom of your shower a little gritty and in need of a rinse but it is well worth it because your skin will feel GREAT!!

a great polish

I tried this and just love it. it is one of my favorites for all body scrubbing, I even use it on my face. it works well, smooths out the rough spots when I let them happen by not staying on top of the exfoliating. the smell is mild
and it is a great addition to anyone's routine.

Excellent!

I love this face and body polish! I use it every time I shower and it really exfoliates all the dead skin cells away. The scent can be a bit overpowering at first, but I got used to it soon enough.

younger looking skin, gentle

I have fallen for this product! I have sensitive skin- so was worried about using this on my face daily, and thought I would treat it as a once weekly "deep-cleanse"- but now I wouldn't go a day without it! My skin is softer, more even toned...I even use the scrub on my legs as an exfoliator for tanning product prep.
The smell is sort of blah- not much scent at all, really. but that is the only con I can come up with!
I swear it's turned the clock back!

Best scrub ever!

This is great stuff. it doesn't smell like fruit, but it gets the job done. My husband loves it too. If you have dry skin or any flakey skin issues, do yourself a favor and try this product.
