I've gotten a few face scrubs to sample through Birchbox and thus far, this has been my favorite. I have combo skin which is also sensitive so I have random redness at times. I used this in the shower and it felt so soothing. It was easy to rinse off, didn't have an overwhelming scent, and my face was still clean, but not stripped of all moisture. Afterward my redness was calmed and my makeup applied easier. I'm probably going to buy this once my sample runs out. Love it!
Light exfoliation. Shrinks pores and makes redness go away. My skin didn't feel tight and dry. I loved this!
Not for me!!
This scrub made me breakout. I ended up having a bunch of blackheads on my chin. It smells funny, too. It is a deep red-orange and just funky to me. Definitely didn't do what it says; minimize pores. Made pores larger and more prominent.
The smell...I just can't.
I instantly started gagging. I'm not sure how to describe it? It also comes out very runny, but maybe that's its normal consistency? However, it did feel good on and after. I don't think I'll continue using simply because of the scent.
Nice gentle exfoliant. Not a huge fan of the smell, can't exactly describe the scent- maybe a fruity, muddy combo. Not horrible, but not pleasant either
