I am praying that this product works for my face and doesn't break me out. I've been searching for a facial scrub to replace Ambi Exfoliating Cream (because they changed the formula). I have sensitive skin and that was the only thing that worked. After many Google searches and reading all the positive reviews on this Palmer's Coconut Sugar scrub, I decided to give it a try. Be aware that the cap on this tube does not come off. At first I thought it was a child proof cap, but quickly realized it was a twist cap when some of the product spilled out from the hole in the center of the cap.
I've only used it once so far and it's definitely gritty which is what I was looking for. The scent it nice, not overpowering. It washed off well and left my face feeling clean. I will use it a few more times during the next couple of weeks to see if it actually helps with my acne/blemishes and doesn't make it worse or make my face itch. Then, I will update this review.
UPDATE 9/12/19: It's been almost a month and I've used this facial scrub several times now. Thankfully, I haven't had any bad reactions. It doesn't work as fast as the old Ambi exfoliator did to clear up my acne/blemishes but it does eventually. So far this is the best replacement scrub I've found. Therefore, I will keep using it.
I like this product because it feels like it really cleans my face and removes any dead skin or surface impurities. Since using it for a week I haven’t had any new break outs and usually when I try a new product I go through a break out period before seeing any results. The only concern I have with this product is that it doesn’t lather like soap. It is intense on your facial skin but I wanted that to feel like it was really cleaning my skin. It leaves your skin really dry from the cleaning and then I use the facial oil to moisturize.
I started using this scrub a few months ago per recommendation of a blogger I follow and immediately loved the scent and how soft it made my skin feel after! However, I try to only use this scrub once a week and only leave it on my skin for a short moment before washing it off because it does tend to make my skin feel very hot when I leave it on for too long. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to spruce up their skincare routine but for those with sensitive skin, I would use with caution to see if any reaction occurs to your skin first.
I liked that it was on the cheap side and it dosent smell bad. Small hint of coconut. It can leave your face a little greasy so you might just go ahead and skip the moisturizer after using it. Very fine exfoliating bits.
I don't have sensitive skin but this seems gentle but does a great job of exfoliating without being harsh. It also seems to rinse off easily and doesn't leave a residue. The tube has an interesting cap that I've never seen before. At first I had trouble opening it. The cap is brown with a white dot in the middle. I tried twisting it off, both directions, to no avail and than finally tried pulling it and the white dot sunk in and I was able to squeeze the exfoliant out. What a great idea! Since the cap didn't come completely off, no risk of losing it.
My face feels so soft after using it. In my opinion, if you are sensitive to gritty exfoliants then this product is not for you. Personally, I love the way it feels while I exfoliate my face with this product and it smells so good! This product has become a daily routine for me. I would recommend using a moisturizer after using this product. I don't feel like this makes my face glow or moisturizes my skin like other reviewers have suggested. I have dry skin around my mouth area and the rest of my face is more of a normal oily skin.
I received this item today and used it instantly. I like that the ingredients are all natural and it smells great. I wouldn’t call this a “gentle” exfoliator because it can feel hard on your skin if you rub it hard. After I washed my face, my skin felt really smooth and soft. Would definitely recommend this product to someone who wants to remove dead skin cells and exfoliate.
I like this scrub. It is a bit rough on the skin on first use, but I gently massage it into my face so it won't irritate my skin. The smell was strong at first. I am not a big fan of coconut, but after several uses, the scent is calming in a way. My face is soft, not baby soft, but soft enough. I don't see a big difference in my skin after using it, so I am hoping that in time, it should make some sort of difference other than softness. With the price, I will continue to buy and use this cleanser.
So because I have sensitive skin I’ve been searching for a good scrub to add to my daily routine so I bought this because I love Palmers lotion and this stuff smells soooo good it didn’t irritate my skin BUT it didn’t help get the dry skin off my face I have a problem with my skin getting dry and peeling so I need something to help with that and unfortunately this didn’t do the job for ME but if you don’t have the dry skin problems like me and just want a good face scrub to add to your routine this is perfect
