here with a finished product to review. This time it's a face scrub. Specifically, Burt's Bees Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub. It is bits of peach seed powder suspended in a creamy base.
I (over) paid $14.99 for this at Shopper's Drugmart. But the Canadian Burt's Bees website has it priced at $12.99. Go figure, Shopper's would be a rip off. Anyway, I used this every other day in the shower on my face for three months until it was gone. That works out to $0.33 per use.
Well, I sort of liked using this product. It had a nice, peachy smell. I found the creamy base quite nice and softening on the skin. In the shower anyway. I read on makeupalley that people who applied this over this sink found that it left a residue. Shower application is the way to go, people.
Now, I wouldn't say this product was a miracle-worker in terms of exfoliation. The peach exfoliator bits were rather few and far between. I had to slop on quite a lot of product to get enough exfoliators on my face to feel like I was sloughing off all the dead skin cells which needed to be buffed away. I also don't think this was a gentle exfoliator, because the peach bits were rough. If you have sensitive skin I would avoid this.
Would I repurchase this? Nope! I don't think that spending $60 a year on this for the rather minimal results would be worth it. It was a pleasant product to use, but not worth the money.
