This review is from: Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub (Personal Care)
The only scrub I use. You need to take a small bit of the scrub, and add a few drops of water to make a paste.
Looking at other reviews I agree it might not be very pretty looking, but its natural... you cant have it all.. most natural products seem a little different to what we're used too because they don't contain the nasty ingredients that make something esthetically pleasing or give it a good consistency.
On the other hand, the smell is to die for. It reminds me of Christmas time... smells like cloves and cinnamon and mulled wine... YUM!
The size of the grains are fine for my skin - I have normal/oily. This one is more gentle then the burts bees peach and willowbark scrub which I thought was a little to harsh. I would call this a 'medium' scrub - probably the consistency of castor sugar (possibly even smaller).
Lasts for ages...probably about 4-5 months with 2 applications per week (according to my beauty therapist you shouldn't scrub more often then this as it removes the skins natural oil which is important?).
It is not ruined if you get a bit of water in it. Sure, you should try to avoid it, but its not that difficult to make sure you don't get the whole jar wet.. and I use mine in the shower.
