Very good

Love this product! I decided to go for a balm coz I have sensitive skin. It just has light grains running through it which is much more comfortable than a normal scrub. It does seem to burn a little bit when all rubbed in - I don’t know if that’s just me with sensitive skin? But doesn’t cause any redness after wards. Skin feels really soft and dead skin cells buffed away. You also use a tiny amount every time so I’m sure this product is going to last me months!

Ouch...

I love Oskia and the smell of this is gorgeous but it's too harsh for my poor skin. I don't even have really sensitive skin, or at least i didn't think I did - but me and this scrub don't really get on so well. I won't be buying again because it just made my skin sore after rubbing very gently and for a very short period of time. Bummer.

Nice product

4

I use this product twice a week. It's more gentle than many other physical exfoliators, but you should massage it into skin with a very light hand, otherwise it may irritate skin. I rinse it off with a cloth, because without a cloth it's harder to remove. I'm not sure about plumping or brightening, but it resurfaces skin well.

Really depends on your skin

4

Normally I hate manual scrubs and exfoliants as my skin is far too delicate and sensitive and will always break out after using. I got this free when I spent a certain amount on Oskia a little while ago. The first couple of times I used it, it was too scrubby and sort of made my skin red and irritated, so I didn't use it for a month or so. I have now found a way to incorporate it into my regime without over-stimulating or irritating my skin (hoorah!), as I would not sell it nor did I want it to go waste. Experimentation is key in my life. I use the tiiiiiiiniest blob on the spatula (supplied with product) and massage it VERY lightly and gently on my t-zone area only (more prone to any kind of congestion and oiliness here). I will remove it with warm water and pat dry. I need to use this about once/twice a month maximum and only in the evenings, mainly in and around my monthly cycle when my skin is like, super rebellious. I follow up with my usual regime and my skin is less congested and oily the following morning and smoother. I'm giving 4 stars, as it cannot be used all over my face (personally) and so I would not spend the money on it.

Really effective

4

I liked this scrub and found it to be very effective. However it is quite a 'robust' scrub so I used it maximum once per week, following which my skin looked clear and scrubbed clean, but definitely a little tender. Perfect prep for a mask or a lovely face oil, but a little rough for frequent use. I don't have sensitive skin.

Fab

I use this as part of a home facial routine along with other Oskia products and absolutely love it. It smooths my skin beautifully, worth the money.

Not a fan

3

Unfortunately I wasn't a fan of this product. Even though the granules may be small, they still aggravate my sensitive skin even mixed with water. Hours after cleansing my skin still looks and feels irritated. I am also not a fan of the smell as to me, it smells of chemicals. Much prefer the cleansing balm by Omorovicza. I gave it an extra star because my skin is very sensitive and gets red really easily, so it is probably more my skins fault than the product.

Broke me out

3

I was disappointed with this product after reading all the great reviews. This product makes my skin feel great immediately after I use it but I find that it actually makes my skin worse later in the day and the following day and my pores appear more blocked than before. I have tried to vary the level of exfoliation by only using once a week and making it with more water so that it emulsifies but it unfortunately hasn't done the trick for me. I think it would suit more mature and less oily complexions. I prefer the Aesop exfoliant for my combination oily skin.

Does what it says

5

It exfoliates well without leaving skin dry and has a lovely mint smell. I could visibly see a significant reduce of pores on my face! And I received this free when I bought the Restoration Oil, no complaints here.
