On the face of it, pretty good value (being a full sized tube of the stuff rather than a sample). However, my problematic, sensitive skin comes into play here: I don’t use an exfoliant. If I do, I end up looking like I’ve taken a belt sander to my face.
Yes, it says on the info card with this month’s Goodiebox (this was part of the February GoodieBox package) that this stuff is “gorgeously natural” and that it “will get your skin ready”.
Ready for what, you may ask? I don’t know: it didn’t say. Just “ready”. For action? For war? For shredding? I vote for the latter.
Exfoliating prevents breakouts, it says, and it “promotes youthful skin, win win!” In my case it also leaves the skin looking like some raw and scratchy. It also left it dry and (contrary to the promised breakout prevention) I ended up with spots! Was it purely a co-incidence? I don’t know for sure, but I won’t be trying it again to find out.
For those of you who can scrub your skin with an exfoliant, this may well be a good one. I don’t know, I just ended up with that freshly sanded look.
