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.

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.

meh - st ives is better

I feel like this product was the same as your classic st. ives apricot scrub but with less exfoliating beads... I only got two or three tries out of the sample and it didn't improve over time.

Not really my thing
Sampled

This product just isn't for me. It didn't seem particularly harsh, but I tend to favour chemical exfoliation over physical anyway.
