I have been using this scrub for a few weeks now, once or twice a week, as a deep cleanse for my skin. As I have previously mentioned (a few times...), I have oily to combo skin, so I always get excited when products claim to be directly aimed at my skin type, be it BB creams, foundations, or in this case - a facial scrub.
From the first use, I wasn't expecting dramatic results, because a) it's a skincare product and I really feel you generally need to give them a while before you can see realistic results with your skin, and b) I got it because I had a spare £5 No7 voucher, and I needed a face scrub.
So, with a pretty open idea on what this would be like, I was surprised how matte, yet soft and refined my skin was after the first scrub. My oiliest places on my face, (nose, forehead and chin), were all baby-bottom smooth and shine (glare) free. Amazing or what?

I think the perfect balance is using this as I do, once or twice a week, because although it might be tempting with such great results from each use, to use it as a daily scrub, obviously it could do more harm than good stripping ALL the natural oils from your face and leaving you not only dull and dry, but even oilier than before. Disastrous scenes.
I love the clean, fresh smell, the small purifying beads that scrub but don't scrape your skin, and best of all I love the results. If you have oily skin, and you want a weekly pick-me-up, then this is a definite must.
Let me know if you have any oily skin saviours, or if you've tried this product yourself?
