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.

Just ok for me...

Not quite sure if this was working well for to skin. I didn't see any difference and I think it made me beak out a little on my foread. Eh...

fresh feeling skin

This made my skin feel super clean and fresh. I loved the smell. Wish the sample was a little big bigger.

Didn't notice any change

I didn't notice any change using this product. I did not wash it off with water. I thought it was going to make my skin feel sticky, but it didn't. However, after a few uses, I did not notice a change in my skin's texture, especially with feeling less dry.

ADORE this!
Purchased

I simply adore this product. I received it as a sample in a past box and bought the full size right away. Sometimes, I end up disappointed with a product in it's full size form but this does not disappoint at all. I've been using it every night for almost a month now and it leaves my skin so soft and helps tame my breakouts.

Good product but not for my skin

I have combination skin and don't generally enjoy using too many products to my face. I currently use a mild soap, followed by a toner, and finish with a moisturizer. This was nice to do use once every couple of weeks but don't plan on using this more than that. I don't plan to buy it after either. It was hydrating but did not see more hydration than I normally get through my regular routine.
