After exfoliating with this versatile scrub, smooth on a layer of Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream to keep your skin protected.

Yu-Be

Birchbox Breakdown

The Japanese are famously particular about their bathing rituals, so it’s only natural that they love this gentle face and body polish. Whether you use it during a five-minute shower or a luxurious soak in the tub, the granular scrub binds with water to clear away skin’s topmost layer of dead cells and prep it for moisturizer. Free of both pore-clogging ingredients like petrolatum and skin-irritating dyes and fragrances, it will invigorate your senses with its light herbal scent.

How it Works

The fine, grainy texture of this light brown scrub comes courtesy of rice bran, which works in conjunction with bamboo to exfoliate skin without stripping it dry. Ginger and ginseng extracts balance out skin’s natural pH levels, while green tea, geranium oil, and a mild dose of camphor soothe away irritation. When you add a splash of water, the scrub turns into a foamy lather that leaves your skin perfectly smooth and polished.

How to Use

In the bath or shower, apply a quarter-size dollop to your palms and add water. Rub your hands together to turn the scrub into a lather, and massage into the skin of your face and body.

It would be really great if I could ever actually ORDER it here.

Because I do love this stuff. But I've been waiting for months to get it here. In the mean time, I have to purchase it elsewhere.

Nice exfoilator
Purchased

I think it is a good exfoliator. Removes dead skin well. However it is hard to rinse off the face. I like a quick routine so a little frustrating but would probably buy again.

Skin Polish

Hates the smell!
I have it a chance on my lips and it was just too thick. I just didn't like anything about it.

super exfoliator
Purchased

I was looking for an exfoliator that was good for my face that wasn't harsh. I have been transitioning to using all natural products, and I'm so glad I added this one to my repertoire.

It is VERY exfoliating, but not harsh or rough as other people have said, unless you are scrubbing really hard or used to really really fine exfoliation. I like to know that my product is working, so it is perfect for me.

it does foam, you just have to add a splash of water in your hand when scrubbing.

I would be cautious of using this every day. I stick to every other day. It does work great on elbows and heels and everywhere else. the tube is HUGE and should last you a long time, especially since you only need a pea-sized amount. I'm strongly considering buying the lotion, too!

Soft shiny skin!
Purchased

This stuff is way better than your basic apricot scrub. The mixture is finer and foams up slightly, really getting into your skin with minimal pressure. The result is smooth skin with a lovely shine... I first used before my wedding and everyone said my skin was soft and fresh looking. I really like this scrub.

Excellent product!

I love this stuff. It is a good replacement for Pernox--and you can use it all over. That's a great feature. Will purchase again for sure!
