Summary
Quite a creamy based exfoliator that leaves skin feeling buffed, moisturised and clean.
I liked how my skin felt after use, so soft and smooth.
I found when I was having "sore skin" days that this product was perfect for it.
Was not harsh on the skin and my skin felt fantastic.
I would highly recommend this if your skin is seriously sensitive.

This face scrub is a medium consistency cream based product with vitamin E, natural oils, shea butter and micro exfoliation particles. The particles are bright pink in colour. The product scent remind me of baby products, floral and fresh. When dispensed you can see the tiny pink beads but I was surprised at how small they are. When applied to your damp skin I could barely feel the exfoliation at all and the dispense of the particles is erratic. You get lots on one application and then hardly any in the next. Normally after using a scrub and rinsing my skin feels energised and clean but I found that this product was not so easy to rinse away. Once I had I felt like there was a residue left on my skin which was not very refreshing. My skin did feel unbelievable soft but I received no particular benefits from the exfoliation.
The tube does last a long time but if you really like to feel exfoliation on your skin you may be a little disappointed with this product

This face exfoliator is lovely,a nice fresh scent and the little particles really polish your face without feeling too abrasive.
Afterwards my face is left feeling really coft and smooth.
I love this,a great price and a brand you can trust.
