I am aware that writing a review of a skincare item is a bit of a waste of time. Skin types and needs vary so much from person to person. This scrub just did not work for me at all. I have normal skin. I do feel like my skin gets a bit “dull” so I use a scrub a few times a week. If I am using a foaming cleanser, I use my Shisiedo brush for exfoliation. One thing that I learned from doing makeup was that people that exfoliated frequently always had younger and healthier looking skin. It didn’t really matter what cream they used or skincare line. It just mattered that they exfoliated and it didn’t hurt to stay out of the sun 🙂
Anyways, I thought I would give this Burt’s Bees Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub a try. I really didn’t like it. It is in a super creamy lotion type base. There are a few “scrubbers” in there, very few. They are rough little peach stone pieces. They really don’t do anything but scratch my skin. This reminds me more of a cream cleanser with a few jagged edges in it. After rinsing, I can still feel an uncomfortable film that even toner can’t remove. I would use the scrub, then my normal cleanser, then use a toner and I still couldn’t the dirty feeling “moisture” off my face. I find this odd because it appears that this product is marketed to the normal to oily skin client. The scent is slightly sweet like peach and almond oil. I like the fragrance because it is neutral enough. But, the fragrance can’t disguise that this is a less than great product.
This product didn’t leave my skin feeling smoother. It didn’t leave it looking more radiant. It really didn’t do anything. There are much better scrubs for me out there in the $8 price range. If you do want to give it a try, it is available at Target.
