unimpressive

The "exfoliating" beads didn't really do anything, and the smell and texture were not pleasant. My skin felt cleaner BEFORE washing with this than it did after. Meh.

Not my favorite

I have used similar products and I found this product to have a weird consistency. I found that it left a weird feeling on my skin and sometimes would weirdly peel off. Not a fan!

Meh, just an OK polisher

I wasn't sure how to use this. The idea of leaving this on my skin was a little weird, so I've always rinsed it off. And I can't really feel a difference in my skin when I use it.

Exfoliates as promised

I tried this after receiving the sample and it certainly did exfoliate without water. Works as promised, but I have dry skin as it is and don't really feel like I need to speed up the process. But if you're looking for a polisher, I couldn't find any complaints.

Not sure

I've tried the product twice and I'm not sure what to think. I haven't really noticed a difference in my skin. I'll keep using it until the product is gone but so far haven't noticed anything different.

Felt icky on face

I got this in my box, and was excited but nervous about the idea of an all-in-one product. It felt like I had left soap on my face, and that it didn't do much. I didn't notice my skin clearing up while I used it. Perhaps it would work given more time, but it's not the product for me.

Didn't bring any new benefits

This cleanser/polisher smells a lot like glue, and the texture is kind of tacky. I didn't find the "beads" really had any exfoliating effect, and my skin didn't feel clean either. Not for me.

LOVED IT!

One of the BEST products I've ever used for my face. I have combination skin, and I usually have a hard time finding a moisturizer that won't make my skin oily. The best thing about this product is that it makes my skin brighter! I love how it exfoliates!
Really enjoyed this product! Thanks Birchbox!

Fine, but not worth the $$

This product was fine, I've used it a few times since I got it, but to be honest I don't think it added or radically changed much of anything on my face. I already have a pretty robust skincare routine. I think that if you didn't or were looking to make a change this might be the right product for you, but I didn't see any change in terms of texture, or clarity in my skin.

No difference

I'm always looking for new polishers. However, I didn't notice any big difference with this one. May be worth investing in a full size to really see any effects.
