was very surprised actually how gentle this was and how effective it was in removing my dead skin and leaving my skin feeling uber smooth

- Ulta User

i love how gentle this is on my skin, and it leaves it absolutely free of dead particles and impurities

- Ulta User



this mask will not make your skin instantly soft or smooth or super plump and glowing with a few uses like some claim unless your skin is already that way

- Ulta User

it's definitely better to use a tiny amount and mix it with a few pumps of cleansing oil, but wow - the smell is amazing, and my skin seems smoother and brighter after using it

- Ulta User

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

usually my skin, after using similar products, leaves my skin feeling like i still have dirt and grime leftover and doesn't even help my blackheads, but this leaves my skin very clean and refreshing

- Ulta User

i really wasn't expecting much from this product because i was let down so many times before, but when i washed off the scrub and looked at my face and saw absolutely no blackheads i knew i made the right purchase

Totally wasn't expecting this

I already had a holy grail gentle exfoliating product before I bought this. But now my expectations have gotten so much higher for my skin care products. This was perfect for my sensitive and easily irritated skin. I no longer get random flare ups of red bumpy spots or dry flaky spots on my face. Also it's seriously diminished my blackheads and whiteheads on my nose and chin!

Pleasantly surprised

Initially I was a bit shocked at the coarseness of the black sugar, I was expecting it to be more finely milled. I worried the large granules would irritate my skin, and by itself, it didn't exactly glide over the skin. (I've found myself enjoying using it with the Klairs cleansing oil) That being said, after washing it off, my skin felt amazing - supple and clear, if that makes sense, haha. It's gentler than you think or it feels, and aside from the black sugar, the other ingredients didn't irritate my skin in any way, and seemed to ensure my skin wasn't too irritated or dried out from the exfoliation. It's scent is fairly light, noticeable but not obnoxiously so. It's interesting, the herball-y, lemongrass-y scent with the sweet scent of the black sugar that hits after it's on the face.

I exfoliate twice a week just because I live in Florida and my face gets oily and I don't want to have that gunking up my pores so I opt for twice a week. And I look forward to those nights because the next morning my face is brighter and smoother and its awesome! I have a lot of hyper pigmentation all over my cheeks and some on my chin and jaw from acne and its so soothing for the soul to see them growing lighter and lighter after each use. It makes me want to exfoliate every night! (don't do that though, its damaging to the skin with any scrub lol) I mix this face polish with a little Klairs cleansing oil just to give it an easier consistency to gently smooth it over the face to minimize tugging. Great product! thanks Klairs and Wishtrend! Love from Florida (United States)

Miracle worker for FOREHEAD BUMPS!!!

I've been using this product since November of last year. I had terrible acne on my forehead as well as me cheeks and this literally helped the bumps clear the texture on my skin. I've been using lots of exfolitators, but most of them irritated my skin and made my acne worse! I can't live without this product anymore because I also breakout from hormones. If only you could have a free lifetime supply of these haha but definitely looking forward to buying another one since my current one is almost finished! This works well with the Pore Corset Serum by Skinmiso, my pores are barely even noticeable anymore. I love Wishtrend i'm so glad I found out about this site :;(∩´﹏`∩);:

Exfoliating without the OUCH factor

I have sensitive combination skin, so it is hard to find an exfoliating product that effectively removes dead skin and blackheads while keeping my face moisturized. Most of the time, I will end up with sore patches on my face. This sugar scrub, however, is both gentle and tough. Tough enough to effectively rid my face of dead skin and reduce blackheads, but gentle enough to my sensitive skin - leaving it moisturized. It also smells AMAZING!
