When I first bought this product I was completely in love with it. Not to say that I still don't love it but over time it starts to smell really strange and the texture seems to change a little. Overall I found this product to be worth the price and it did the job that it was supposed to do. The grains are very small but not jagged so they seem to just buff away dead skin and reveal nice new skin.
I really like to use this on my face each night before bed. It has a nice exfoliating texture but not gritty enough to hurt (if that makes sense). It leaves your skin feeling smooth and moisturized! I'll definitely buy this again when I run out!
I like this product! it's not harsh like the apricot one. It's gentle and i feel fresh after. My skin felt tight at first and then it was okay afterwards. Rinsing takes long because my face is covered by white grains. it's not really hard to remove all. It has great price for a microdermabrasion product!
I love this product!! I have tried many many others and none of them compare to st ives. THe smell is fantastic and it leaves my face feeling very smooth and soft. I use it everyday and have noticed a positive change in my complexion!!
I really enjoy using this product as it has gentle exfoliant properties. For those with sensitive skin or for those who have problems using normal "heavy" exfoliants" I would recommend this product. It provides a nice deep clean without scouring your face! Leaving you feeling clean and refreshed. I use it as part of my daily routine and have never experienced any problems!
Good exfoliator but nothing out of the ordinary.
It`s gentle, which makes it a better option for people with sensitive skin.I personally like the apricot one, as I am looking for a rougher product, but this one did good for in between uses.
It`s worth giving it a try.
I really like this scrub. It scrubs off that dull layer of skin. I use it about every other day and a half or so. The grains are very fine so it feels like it's really getting in the skin. The only thing about this scrub that bothers me (which really isn't even really an issue) is that no matter how much I try to rinse off the product, I get little specks of dry white "scrub" around my eyes which comes right off when u wipe it with a tissue. I have severely combination skin (extremely oily to pretty dry in areas) and I don't find it too drying but I do moisturize right away.
Overall: It smells really good and I'd say the price is a steal for the quality. It's a good exfoliater to have around to use when you are in need of a skin turnover.
Love love this product! Unfortunately it's become very difficult to find. I've checked Target, CVS, Walmart, RiteAid, Price Chopper, Hannaford, all the usual places and nothing. Hannaford said they may have discontinued it?! Gasp! Off to Walgreens tonight...
I saw this on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart a little while ago, and remembered reading good reviews on it here on ChickAdvisor! So I decided to try it! I really like this product. It didn't smell chemically, the exfoliants are not too harsh and it makes my skin feel great! I didn't find it made my skin too dry, but I use it in the shower and put on moisturizer right away, so maybe that's helping. I use it about twice a week and can think of nothing bad to say about it. My roommate borrowed it and loved it too, now she has a tube of her own! :)
If I were forced to pick something negative, maybe it would be the price. It's a small tube for more than $10. But if you can find it on sale, then it's well worth it!
I must agree with the previous reviewer, this smells SO good! I've tried a couple other at home microdermabrasion scrubs and hated the chemically smell they had but this one is so light and relaxing, I love it. The little bit of lather is really nice, too. The exfoliating crystals are very fine and do the job well, but they are not too rough or harsh. They do seem to distribute more evenly than other scrubs so you get even exfoliation.
The only thing I don't really like is that after using it, my skin feels tight. Not dried out, just uncomfortably tight, similar to the way your skin can feel when it's dried out. I'm not sure that makes sense but I'm not sure how else to explain it. That tight feeling does go away after about an hour or so though. I use it twice a week though as part of my regular routine and I do like it a lot, it really helps keep my skin soft and glowy.
