I use this more as a mask than a scrub, but I do leave it on for a couple of minutes usually. However, I had the same problem as someone else mentioned -- it turns runny after a few weeks. It doesn't say it needs to be refrigerated, but maybe I should try that next time.... Also I've found if I smoosh the tube around a lot every time before I use it, it's better. But it still doesn't have the same thick consistency as when I first get it. Anyway, I'm most of the way through my second tube and plan to purchase again, as it does make my skin feel really good, smooth, and not dry.
I love how gentle and effective the exfolition is, but after a month or so, the consistency became too watery. Other than that, I think it's very effective as a mild exfoliator.
For a face scrub, this product is excellent. For a mask, I agree with the other reviewers and am not as fond. Usually I leave it on for a minute or two in the shower after rubbing in circular motions and that works well. My skin tends to be kinda dull and flaky, alternating with greasy/oily, so I tend towards breakouts a lot. This helps wash away dead skin cells and feels nourishing. My only beef is that they use soybean oil and citrus seed extract, which is often tainted with methyl/propylparaben. Yuck. Keep improving Aubrey!
Huh. I give it 5 stars as a scrub, but pretty much a goose egg as a mask. Used as a scrub, its awesome--it does what its supposed to do without being harsh, it doesn't sting or burn, and its light; I love the texture. However, when used as a mask, my skin was too dry for my comfort last night and today. I can't compare it to other masks, since I've avoided them like the plague since I was 19 or so, when a mask supposedly for dry skin seemed to suck the life out of me. My opinion of it as a mask probably isn't a fair one because I'm just don't like facial masks and can't stand having my skin feel any drier than it already is for any period of time. Overall, I'm happy with the product and will continue to use it as a scrub (I gently smooth a pea size amount all over and then lightly rub into my skin for app 2 min, rinse with warm water, and follow up with the rosa mosqueta toner and moisturizer for my happy results!)
Overall I am quite pleased with this product, does what it says it will, skin is very soft and clear after use. My only complaint is that when I first purchased, it had a thick consistency, but after about 2 wks. it became very watery/runny and doesn't really work as a mask anymore.
I am surprised and AMAZED. Unexpectedly, from the very first use, blemishes and acne scars improved (even under-the-skin acne!), no new breaking out, skin feels SO soft and smooth and glows, improved texture, tighter pores... and I've tried SO many things from proactiv to you name it! (I use it by scrubbing with it for 1-2 minutes).
