Best Face Scrub

(Last Updated On: September 27, 2018)

The best face scrub so does this mean you take a wire brush and exfoliate the skin until it is raw and bleeds? This is what a face scrub sounds like you get a brush and scrape the old tired skin off until it is all but disappeared from your face. Then you would have one painful mess on your hands. This conjures up images in the old days of parents grabbing the little rebel by the ear and dragging him to the wash basin and taking a wire brush and scrubbing out his fingernails and behind his ears. Besides, scrubbing behind the ears isn’t this an old wives tale anyway? Whoever heard of getting dirt behind your ears anyway? You would have to take mud or spaghetti sauce and rub it intentionally behind your ears to accumulate dirt there. When I was growing up my parents never told me to scrub behind my ears (what a radical concept) because I never got dirt behind my ears. I mean in my childhood I do not remember ever getting dirt behind my ears.

Anyway, what is the advantage of having a top-quality face scrub? A couple of dermatologists from Beverly Hills say there are a few reasons for acquiring a quality face scrub and using it. For starters when you exfoliate the dead skin cells from the face thoroughly all the dead skin will flake off and leave room for new skin cells to grow. This then literally changes the complexion of the facial skin. It will remove wrinkles, thin lines and other aging qualities from the skin. The skin will look young, radiant and clear. These days everyone wants to have clear, glowing and smooth skin; they also want to look like a teenager when they are in their golden years. Well, a good face scrub can help to meet the goals. The face scrub will also allow the pores to open up and unclog. This, in turn, will allow skin moisturizers, makeup, foundation and a host of other beauty products to absorb easily into the rejuvenated skin. But we must be careful to buy the right type of face scrub for the right skin type. You do not want to apply a face scrub that will irritate the skin and leave red and sore. You don’t ever want to buy a face scrub that will have an allergic reaction to the skin.

Instead of exfoliating the skin you will irritate the skin. Also, you want a face scrub that will remove excess sebum oil so you will not have acne breakouts. If you apply a face scrub that clogs the pores and does not remove the oil you will have acne breakouts like crazy. Like any other product, there are face scrubs that will work well with people’s skin and there are face scrubs that will not react well to people’s skin. You want to find the happy medium of a skin scrub that will cleanse the skin but not leave it looking like an oil slick. There are face scrubs that can answer the demands of the pickiest beauty expert.

Benefits and Uses: It is a 12-ounce jar of exfoliating face scrub product. It has ingredients that will remove dead skin cells gently at the deepest levels. It is a 12-ounce jar of exfoliating face scrub product. It has ingredients that will remove dead skin cells gently at the deepest levels. The product is made on American soil and is tested for safety and quality. This assures the customer they are getting a reliable product. It will also unclog pores. The product is free of harmful chemicals and ingredients. It has never been tested on animals so it is cruelty-free. You see the animal guild instructed the animals to go on strike to protest the fact that the company was thinking about testing this product on animals. There was such a disturbance that the company backed down and withdrew their intent to test this product on animals.

Feedback: The customer says the review is unbiased. They were torn between this scrub and another one. They did not like the smell of coffee but they like the smell of coconut oil. They have a very sensitive sense of smell so they can smell anything they claim. I would not mind smelling a faint trace of coconut oil or almond oil. The customer says in the second round she used an exfoliating towel so she had a massage and a scrub in one session. She says a little massage pressure makes the product go a long way. She says her skin feels soft even after a long time the skin texture generally feels softer. She says the product removes the dead skin fairly well. She suggests that you give your significant other a massage with the product and an exfoliating towel. In the neck, shoulder and arm areas. They will appreciate your efforts. Some significant others may not want to receive a massage.

The customer says she is a normal woman living a normal life shopping on Amazon. She doesn’t like people who are not writing truthful reviews neither do I. She says she scrubs her entire body with the product except for the face. She does this in the shower after every shower. She scrubs then quickly rinses the scrub off she tries to let the oils stay on as long as she can. She moves from one area of the body to the next covering the whole body before she rinses off. She claims it has a better effect on the body. She says she would buy the product again from the company. the review is an honest one she writes.

Acure Brilliantly Brightening Facial Scrub

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B003Z4OD24&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=balancemebeau 20 - Best Face Scrubir?t=balancemebeau 20&l=li3&o=1&a=B003Z4OD24 - Best Face Scrub

Benefits and Uses: It gently removes dirt and oil while exfoliating the skin. This seems like a paradox that a face scrub can gently remove dirt and oil while scraping dead skin cells off the face.This seems anything but a gentle process. it stimulates new cell growth with its formula and it is able to brighten the complexion. It is cruelty-free and free from harsh chemicals. They tried to test it on animals but the animals complained about the smell of the product so the testing had to stop.

Feedback: The customer was so excited about the product she could not wait to write a review. It is mid-winter and she has a toddler in tow and he has let her beauty regime slide. She has hyper-pigmentation and some discoloration from pimples on her jaw. He tried this product and while it did not take care of the hyperpigmentation after the first use it made the skin very soft. She says even her husband was surprised and she said she can not remember the last time her skin was this soft. It has a nice scent but she says if you are into a super perfumy smell this is not for you. Or if you are like her and get headaches from beauty products with strong scents this may be for you. She says she thinks she will be buying this product for a long time to come.

The next day she hardly needed to use any moisturizer because of the scrub the night before.The client says the product has left the texture and the skin tone in better condition. She uses it in the shower and she applies a liquid soap so it goes on the face easier. She applies it in the shower and will continue to use it once a week. She applies it in circular motions and she only uses an amount the size of a dime. The scrub goes a long way and the bottle will last a long time.

The client complains that the product used to be much more concentrated. It would come out in chunks and you add a little bit of water to the product and it was ready to go. She says the product is now like a liquid jelly. She also complains that the packaging has changed. The opening is wider and if you squeeze too much then too much product comes out because it is so liquidy now. She uses some other kind of scrub with this liquid. She has been using it for five years and now she has given it a lower rating. I wonder why she keeps using the product if she doesn’t like it anymore. The liquid gel and the wider opening are not major issues in my opinion.

This is a sad review or the customer. She has been switching over to a natural lifestyle so she thought she would give this product a try. What a mistake that was. She says she broke out severely, worse than she has in over a decade. She says her face was so irritated she had to put a moist towel on it. This is some extensive irritation and she adds that she has sensitive, acne-prone skin.

Another veteran scrub user says the product was much too harsh for her skin. She applied the granules to her face and it really irritated the skin. She has been using scrubs for more than 20 years. She was disappointed with the results of the product because she was led to believe it was one of the best. She would not use it on her legs and arms because it is too harsh.
The user says the product is too small. She is talking about a shampoo/conditioner and I am not sure why. She says the bottle is too small and the granules are a lot smaller than they looked in the image. She says it is the size of a shampoo/conditioner sample bottle you would get from a motel. She writes it would not be enough to shampoo and condition her hair for a week vacation more like a weekend. I am not sure why she keeps referencing a hair shampoo/conditioner when it is a face scrub. She may have reviewed the wrong product. It is definitely a mystery.

Green Tea Detox Face Scrub by Teami

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B072KGJW2C&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=balancemebeau 20 - Best Face Scrubir?t=balancemebeau 20&l=li3&o=1&a=B072KGJW2C - Best Face Scrub

Benefits and Uses: The product has the ability to make the skin look and make the skin look young and vigorous. It has all organic ingredients for the best treatment for your skin. It will also reverse the aging process to give you young looking skin for a long time to come. The scrub contains an all-natural sugar that gently exfoliates the skin that gets rid of toxins and redness that evens the skin tone. But a scrub that gently exfoliates the skin does not seem likely. It is good for removing makeup and it will not leave a residue on the skin.

It gently removes dirt and oil while reversing the aging process and leaves the skin smooth and glowing. It removes wrinkles and fights acne leaving the skin crystal clear. It will reduce pores and remove blackheads. One thing it claims to do is remove cellulite (it is fat in the skin that causes the skin to dimple) by applying it in a circular motion for 30 to 60 seconds. This will remove the cellulite the company claims. It is a little hard to believe this scrub will remove cellulite when no other face scrub company will make that claim about their product.

The is guaranteed to satisfy you and it has no harmful products in it and 75% of the ingredients are natural It will not harm your skin and guess what it is cruelty free. They Tried This product on animals and it did not have the results the animals were expecting so they had to stop testing it on the animals. They will give you a full refund no questions asked if you are not fully satisfied with the product.

This is one of the shortest reviews ever written. The customer says the product is awesome and you should try it. What should I try it? This is all good that the customer thinks the product is amazing but why do they think it is awesome. There is no indication given why the customer likes the product so much or why they gave it a five-star rating. They need to include some solid reasons why the product works so well for them.

St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Face Scrub and Mask

Benefits and Uses: The product fills two functions it is a face scrub to remove dry skin. It is an oatmeal face mask to nourish the skin. So, in a sense, you are getting two products for the price of one. It has 100% natural exfoliants and the oats are taken from fields across the United States. Oatmeal is supposed to bring peace to the soul, mind and body and I do not know where they got this information from. How can oatmeal do this? The product is free of deadly chemicals.

Feedback: The customer has been using the product for years and says the scrub has a mild scent. The customer’s skin is on the oily side but the product does not strip the skin completely of the natural oils. A real solid value the client writes. The client uses it twice a week.

Majestic Pure 24K Gold Body and Facial Scrub

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B01N6IHDIN&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=balancemebeau 20 - Best Face Scrubir?t=balancemebeau 20&l=li3&o=1&a=B01N6IHDIN - Best Face Scrub

Benefits and Uses: The product is made from 24K gold foil which was supposedly used by the ancients. I am not sure it is safe to be applying gold dust on the face. The gold is a main ingredient in the scrub and the scrub is an effective acne fighter. The company warns to use the product external only and to keep it away from the eyes. Also, it says if you are pregnant to consult a doctor before using the product. Try the product in a patch area to see if you have an allergic reaction to it. If you have to consult a doctor about using this if you are pregnant is it such a safe product? It is cruelty-free and the reason that it is cruelty-free; is because the animals thought it was a little too rich for their blood to be having gold rubbed into their fur.

Feedback: The customer has used it five times and loves the way the product makes the skin feel. The only negative point is the product gets very messy as it falls out as you try to work it into the skin. This sounds like you are wasting a lot of product. This customer is not happy with the product. She used a colorful word that was unnecessary in the review. She says the chunks are too small and it has large chunks of salt in it. It leaves a sticky residue on the skin and it really clogs up the pores. The customer point blank hates the product.


These face scrubs seemed to work pretty well for the customers who tried them. In all the products reviewed there was only one really negative review which isn’t bad for the products reviewed. This review had an unnecessary colorful word in it that absolutely added no value to the content of the review.
