Interesting...

I sampled this product and expected something more... cleansing... I still am not quite sure what to make of it. I thought it might exfoliate a bit more or have more of a scrubbing effect. The little beads that appeared while applying the product were something different - and fun, if you can call a face product that :-) But I don't know, really, how much cleansing it really did.

Meh?

I haven't used this too much but it's ok. It has a good scrubby feeling, but I wouldn't use it randomly during the day because of the beads that are left behind. Definitely a morning or night product for me, with a sink at hand to rinse it off. Other than that, I haven't really used it enough to see a difference.

Feels lovely, seems to work!

I received this product in my box. In using it, I was impressed at how little of the product was needed to cover my entire face. The little scrubby beads are gentle on my skin. I was not consistent enough in using it to 100% determine whether or not it was truly effective, but I can say that my skin looked and felt lovely each time I used it. For the week I was dedicated to it, I didn't have any break outs or redness, but I am not sure if this was the product alone.

Intriguing but not right for me.

I liked the idea of wiping this off rather than rinsing it away, but the product beaded up on my skin and didn't seem to do anything.

Favorite item from Birchbox ever

I love this polisher. I have extra dry skin and this is the only exfoliant that I have ever been 100% satisfied with. I do rinse my face to get the little beaded up bits off and then moisturize. My make up goes on smooth, even powder and my skin doesn't flake at all, all day. LOVE this product.

Skin changer
Purchased

I received a sample of this polisher in my monthly box. I've used it as instructed, three times in one week, and can't believe how much clearer and cleaner my face has become. I've just purchased the full size product, because this is a skin changer (for the better) for me....In the week I've used it, I've noticed that I don't have a horribly oily face during the day, my skin tone has evened out, and little imperfections I'd started to notice have begun to disappear. I'm adding this to my skin care routine for sure!

Just ok

It was ok but dried out my skin and I didn't feel like I would want to use more then my sample.

Ehhh

I got a sample of this and it was ok but I wouldn't buy it because it didn't do much of anything.

nice exfoliant

Very very microbeads create a very nice effect on the face. I liked it a lot, it wasn't harsh but still left my face feeling well, polished!

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.
