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.

I liked this (not as much as the Pangea scrub); it was nice, but the exfoliating beads were so fine they almost felt sharp. I did like how it didn't dry out my skin. The sample size was too small to get a long-term opinion of, so I'm not planning to purchase since I don't know how it will affect my skin after a couple weeks. For me, it's really important that samples for facials creams/cleansers/other skincare products are large enough to test over the course of a couple weeks; that seems to be how long it takes for my skin to react to a product. So if I don't know how it will affect my routine, it's extremely unlikely that I will purchase it.

I liked this cleansers natural scent. I really didn't care for how small the exfoliating beads were though. I also did not care for the way it made my skin feel oily after I used it.

Pros: lots of natural ingredients, feels good while scrubbing your face, pleasant scent
Cons: didn't feel like my face was clean after I rinsed, couldn't read anything on the package as I am not fluent in french, and the price-seriously expensive! 30ml is only 1 OUNCE! OUCH!

This scrub is nice (smells and feels nice), but it is not my favorite--sticking to my Origins!

I tend to like for my exfoliators to be really grainy - to feel like they're really doing their job. For me, the grain of the Benta Berry G-1 was just a little too fine. But if you have more sensitive skin or aren't as weirdly obsessed with super exfoliating exfoliators, this would be perfect!

I didn't think this was very creamy. I liked the exfoliation, but it just wasn't enough and then the lack of the cream made me feel like I was just pushing little crystals around on my skin rather than really buffing or polishing.
