Positive - 1) This product leaves my face soft right after use. 2) I love the brand and its values of natural and no animal testing. Negative - 1) Prepare for the sting. It burns like normal salt on open wounds, lips or dry skin. 2) It is very difficult to apply unless you mix it with your normal facial cleanser. It is literally just like salt crystals. When you add water it doesn't make a paste, instead it is just wet salt that goes everywhere other than your face. 3) The packaging is not ideal. Since it is a dry product it needs to be water proof to keep moisture away from the product so it doesn't harden.
I wasn't sold on the idea of a salt exfoliant for my face, but this has sold me. The crystals are fine enough that they don't leave my face screaming and my skin is glowing for a few days after.
Fresh and clean
This works great and feels really fresh and clean after words
I got this sample size and tried it for the past 3 days. I mix a small amount with my facial cleanser and gently massage all over. My face hasn't looked this good in months! Skin feels smooth and soft. Forehead acne totally gone. One of the keys here, folks, is GENTLY massage over skin. When people say it's too harsh, they could be rubbing too hard. I did that the first day and ouch! But wow! What a difference doing it correctly! Give it a try!! I will be purchasing the full size!
Great product, not for the face.
Let me start by saying, this is a wonderful product to add to a favorite soap or body wash in the shower. I love that it doesn't come already scented or with a cleanser already mixed. You can determine your own amount and that's just fabulous. I completely disagree with the use of this product on your face. The salt grains are too harsh and can seriously do some damage to the skin on the face.
Does the job.
Kind of messy but is a great exfoliator. I added it to my regular face soap and my skin felt so smooth after I washed.
not my favorite
this stuff was a little messy for me and didnt really leave me feeling clean. i doubt ill be buying this!
Made my skin breakout
again, the exfoliator made my skin break out. Its probably
not the products fault it is just the fact I have oily skin and
my skin didn't agree with the product.
Needs Different Packaging
I really loved my sample and how soft it made my skin feel, so I purchased the full size product. The packaging for the full size product is poor. It is packaged like a salt shaker and it is difficult to get the salt out. In addition, I kept mine in my shower and the outside paper has kind of fallen apart (likely due to the moisture) and the salt has seeped out onto the packaging and the shelf in my shower. Definitely keep this away from your shower!
Wish I had received a sample of this, I would have bought it the minute I finished using it! I'd never heard of the brand or of this product, but I was looking through the skin care section here, read the description and went for it. So glad I did! Now that I own it, I bet it will be in my next birchbox! Lol!
