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.

Good exfoliater

Leaves my face feeling fresh and clean without feeling dried out. I was not a huge fan of the scent, but it got the job done!

gritty is good

I liked that I could feel the grit in this wiping away the dead cells. If you have super sensitive skin, beware but I liked knowing that I was really working it in to my face. (side note, I have sensitive skin and my face was a little red immediately afterwards but then it calmed right down)

Smells wonderful!!

This is my first review... and this product is worth talking about. I got this in my birchbox and I will be buying the full size. I enjoy the ground apricot seeds for exfoliating and I do notice my face softer after. The real selling point to me is the smell.. a very soft natural scent. I love this product.

It's merely ok.

Feels weird on your skin, I do not care for it at all. I am happy with what I currently use.

Not for Sensitive Skin

I got a sample in the mystery sample pack, twice. I have mildly sensitive skin and the first time I used it, I severely broke out and after I gently washed it off several times, I still had a burning sensation. I would not classify this as an "ultra-gentle" cleanser. I do NOT recommend this if you have any skin issues, but it does exfoliate somewhat.

Small sample

I did like this exfoliator but it was difficultto distinguish from some fo the others I have. I will be sure to use up the tiny bit left in the tiny sample to be sure.

Smells nice, but not a wonderful product

I liked that the grit was small, but I felt the need to wash my face with my regular cleanser after. I didn't think that it washed my make up off either. It would be good to use in addition to my normal wash.

Good cleanser, not much for an exfoliate

This smelled delicious and I did leave a very nice feel to my skin. However, I don't think it could be called an exfoliate at all, the ratio to cleanser vs seeds was very low. That being said, everything else about it was wonderful.

Great Stuff

This is an awesome product that smells great. It was gentle enough on my sensitive skin because it sort of in between a cleanser and an exfoliator. Skin felt smooth and clean after
