The good stuff:
- Lots of product
- A little goes a long way
- Smells super yummy!
- Gently exfoliates
- Leaves skin feeling smooth and soft
- Improves skin tone/texture
- Idk about the "remove impurities" and "unclog pores" claims
- You have to unscrew the top
My take: I really like this scrub! The best part is that it smells delicious, like some kind of dessert pastry. Yum! For the price, it is an excellent scrub that makes skin smooth, soft and glowy. I'd get similar results with other cleansers such as Neutrogena Deep Clean gentle scrub or St. Ive's apricot scrub, but at a fraction of the price and with lots more product! I'm a bit hesitant to agree with the big claims of "drawing out impurities" and "unclogging pores." Although this product did not break me out, it didn't seem to really improve any existing breakouts either. The only thing I dislike with Queen Helene products is that I wish the cap was a flip-cap instead of having to unscrew it.
