Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub
Once I heard about this I HAD TO TRY IT! I had been having a lot of acne problems lately and I think it was mostly due to a moisturizer that my skin didn't like, but I'll do a review on that later. So I looked at nearly every Walgreens in town and no one had it. I nearly gave up my search when my friend Kim and I went to Target and low and behold there was only 1 on the shelves!!! I snached that baby right up but Kim had to buy it for me because I was broke as a joke (and I helped her carry and put together her new shoe rack)....so thank you Kim for the most amazing skin product ever!
This cost $8 which for some of you might be a bit pricey for a scrub but this is made with all natural ingredients so I think it is really worth every penny.
The first impression of this scrub is a little odd, it comes in a glass jar with a twist off lid. Upon opening it I looked at it and said "what the heck" because the look and texture is really unlike any other scrub I've encountered (but I usully buy the cheap stuff). It's really dry and has almost a chalky texture in the jar but on the box it says just to add a few drops of water to a "small amount" and then work it into a paste.
When it say's "small amount" it means SMALL AMOUNT! You literally only need about a dime/pea size amount of this scrub and a very very small amount of water and then rub it for a few seconds in your hands and there you have it!
I LOVE THIS SCRUB!!
I use this once daily at night to help remove all my makeup and give my skin a good clean . When I first got it I was using it 2 times a day but after about 2 days of that it did start to dry my skin out a little so I had to cut back. However in only one week of using this I have noticed my skin is smoother, brighter, less red around my cheeks and forhead and my blackheads and acne have almost all but vanished. I can not rave enough about this product!!! I would most surely recomend it for every skin type.
I hope you all have a great Saturday :)
