I normally love to try different facial scrubs. I have dry, flaky skin and I love the feeling of using a really great scrub to get all the flaky dead skin off my face. I was excited to try this face polish. When I opened the sample in the shower I was surprised at the color of the scrub. It was a dark brown, and actually seemed to leave a little stain on my fingers even after rinsing the product off. It did not leave any color on my face though. I really did not care too much for the smell of the product. It could be because I am 9 months pregnant and have a super sensitive sense of smell right now, but I really didn't like it. The face polish was a nice texture though. It was a little scrubby without being so rough that it left my skin red and sensitive.
