BENTA BERRY G-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleanser

Moderation is key when it comes to exfoliating, which is why those harsh scrubs aren’t doing your skin any favors. Luckily, this hip Parisian brand’s ultra-gentle cleanser crossed the ocean just in time to rescue dull complexions without stripping skin. A host of natural ingredients, including finely ground apricot seeds, work to lift away dead cells and impurities.

what is this?
Sampled

I received this sample months ago, and still have it sitting in my bathroom.. why? because I can't even read anything on the bottle and have no idea what it is. Thank god Birch box comes with the cards that explain each product. I would never know if the product works or not because the packaging is so dull and confusing that I want nothing to do with it.

meh...

After I washed my face, my face didn't feel clean, had to re-wash with regular cleanser or wipes an hour later. Also, it doesn't foam up, so I feel it doesn't clean as well as other exfoliating scrubs.

If you have oily skin like I do, this really isn't the product for you.

wasn't impressed

I used this a few times, and I don't feel like it did anything. It didn't seem to really exfoliate or leave my skin feeling refreshed. Overall, pretty disappointed.

Not enough

I was excited to try this product, however I didn't feel like it lived up to the hype. The sample size was so small that I could barely get anything to lather when I washed it, and it didn't feel like it cleaned (or exfoliated) my skin at all.

A disappointment more than anything else

I always look forward to trying new cleansers and exfoliators but this one was simply a bust. First of all, I hated how it simply wouldn't sud up at all: in my opinion, no foaminess means that the product is essentially ineffective. It did nothing but sit there while I worked it all over my face. The exfoliation seeds were minimal so it didn't really feel I was using an exfoliator. Finally, while the smell is fantastic and energizing, for me personally, it seemed to always leave a filmy/oily layer after washing it away. I had high hopes for this product after reading the reviews but was definitely disappointed and will unlikely purchase this or any other products from this line again.

not good

I didnt like this at all. For some reason my skin felt really greasy and like sticky after i used this. I didnt feel fresh after. Just felt like I had to wash with something else right after.

not impressed

I wasn't impressed with this product. I definitely prefer cleansers that foam a bit, and the exfoliant was way too mild to notice any difference. I like that it didn't dry out my skin or feel greasy, but I definitely prefer other cleansers.

What a disappointment in this Exfoliating cleanser

I love getting exfoliating products in my Birchbox, but this one was awful. It felt like I was pouring sandy water in my hands, it was soooo thin and Ionly got one use out of the sample!

Too expensive for a so-so job

Tried out the sample of this product. Didn't feel much like my skin was being exfoliated. Also, when rinsing, my skin was left freeing very greasy. I would not recommend or purchase this product while i feel that there are cheaper products out there that do the job better.

I had to rewash with my daily cleanser after

The product is just a weird texture, it left my face with a residue and took my facial scrub to get it off. My face did not feel clean after using it.
