Didnt make much of a difference
Sampled

This product didnt make much of a difference to my skin but I did like the smell. Unfortunately, because I didn't find it was very effective, I think i will be sticking with what i normally used. sample size was very generous

hydrating
SampledPurchased

Product is hydrating but I wouldnt say it is exfoliating. It forms little clear beads that are supposed to be the product "workiing" however I dont really see the results like i do with other similar products

S.M.A.R.T Skin Perfecting Polisher is different, not sure if that's a good thing, however.
SampledPurchased

I bought the full size product after having received a tiny sample from Birchbox and I decided to make the splurge. I bought it, and loved it, but found that those little beads felt kind of gross on me. The label says that you don't have to wash your face afterwards, but I felt that I needed to. Although the beaded, tacky feeling needs to be washed away, the way my skin feels after is great. I don't know if I would buy this product again, but I am proud of myself for having branched out and tried a new brand. I tend to stick to my favorites.

Not sure if it worked
Sampled

I thought this was a neat product but I wasn't sure it worked. I didn't notice a difference but I saw the little gel balls that was supposed to rub off dirt, but I didn't really see an improvement after 3-4 uses.

I like the option to not rinse, and in theory it is a good idea. But it just didn't seem to work that well for me.

Ok product not enough product

This item worked okay from what I could tell. Sample size was really small and half empty when received. Not enough to be able to make a good review for it

Not for Me
Sampled

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!

I tried using this a couple times and didn't feel a huge difference? I also accidentally got some in my eye and it hurt a lot. Not my favorite.
