Not for Me

I had a terrible experience with the product. It made my chin break out in hundreds of pin point pimples/hives. I had never had an experience like this before so I didn't even think that I should do a test spot first. It lasted for several days and I was so self conscience. Never again!

What does it do again?

Wasn't very impressed by the product. I know its supposed to have some residue but it was a real turn off for me.

No Difference

The biggest issue with this was that I did not see any difference after using this product. I would get little beads on my hands. I'm not quite sure what this is for, but it dried out my skin as well.

I don't even understand what the point of this product is. when i used it, i got the little beads stuck to my face and the only way to get them off was to wash it like 2 or 3 times.

Rinse Optional?

Overall I'm not really sure what this product did...besides make my face oily and shiny. Had to wash/rinse face within the hour after using!

Not that gentle

This came in my September box and I finally got around to trying it last night. The skin on my face is crazy sensitive. When I was a kid, I couldn't get face paint at fairs or birthday parties because the paint would leave a burn mark on my face. (Yes, even though it was listed as "hypo-allergenic")

Anyway, I'm always wary of exfoliants because of the way my skin reacts. Since this was listed as great for sensitive skin and gentle, I thought I would give it a go. Less than a minute after putting it on my face, I could feel the heat build up. Sure enough, when I looked in the mirror, my face was bright red. It was as if I had spent all afternoon in the sun with no sunscreen. I quickly rinsed it off my face. I don't think it was on long enough to do any major damage, but even this morning, my face still feels warm to the touch and is much pinker than usual. So if you have extremely sensitive skin, use with caution.

Not crazy about it

I just thought this was so weird. It felt funny when I rubbed it in and the little balls that appeared were not what I thought. I guess if you like a scrub, it's a nice substitute since it's not harsh on the skin. But, I just really didn't like the way it felt, and didn't like how the balls lingered on my face. I felt like I had to wash it again after using the product.

YUCK!

I liked the idea of not having to rinse the product...thinking it'd be easy to use, leave my skin feeling clean, etc. WRONG-it's like having gummy sand on your face. Didn't even rinse well. Just felt gross.

This was okay but I really didn't notice any difference in the products I already use.

I'm not really understanding what this product is supposed to do. I didn't see any noticeable difference in my skin after using. Perhaps this is a product where the benefits will show over time...
