Meh

I've been sampled similar Baxter products before. I have a exfoliating facial scrub from another brand I like. It will be good to have this as a spare scrub, but Baxter just got beat out by something else on the market with this one.

Amazing
Sampled

Works really well. The scent isn't all that strong and it rinsed off easily without drying out my skin. I have sensitive skin so I can't use it more than once or twice a week, but as soon as my sample runs out I will definitely be purchasing a full size.

I thought this product was great it made my skin appear very soft and smooth and definitely helped with blackheads. My girlfriend really liked it as well and even purchased a bottle for herself.

Seems standard
Sampled

This product seems like your standard face scrub. I could not tell a difference from common brands like Oxy or Nutrigena (sp?)

Smells delicious
Sampled

This facial scrub is made with good ingredients. That alone made me look forward to trying it out.

I have but one complaint: It's a bit gritty for my liking. That is to say the walnut shells could be a little finer. But it was not irritating.

My favorite thing about the scrub is the scent. It smells very much like almonds.

Too greasy
Sampled

I enjoyed the almond scent of this product and the level of exfoliation it provides, but it left my face feeling greasy and not so clean.

Does a nice job.
Sampled

Like others have said, it's definitely got a gritty feel to it. The description says shell powder, but it feels a lot more like shell pieces. It wasn't too harsh though, and did a good job exfoliating my skin.
