Mark Berry Grand Exfoliating Beads Review6:00 AM
I had purchased Mark's Berry Grand Exfoliating Beads over a year ago, if not longer. Used it once or twice and under my sink it went. I recently have been using up or getting rid of products I have been packing around and not using. Since I had read Cerina's Review recently I remember I had this and thought I needed to use it or toss it.
I paid around $12 for this, I remember when I was purchasing it I thought man this is pricey but it looks really nice.
Super Exfoliating beads, it actually kinda freaked me out the second time around looking at this, I was like who these look like little rocks or sand. I was thinking it was going to do some damage to my face.... But I was surprised it wasn't harsh at all.
What you do is mix a small amount with your cleanser in your hand, rub on face and rinse off.
I could feel such a difference in my face after using this, it was super soft and felt very clean!
The "Beads" do soften up a lot so they aren't as tough as they look! In my opinion if you can use St.Ivs apricot scrub then you could easily use this, I find it less abrasive then that stuff. I do like a stronger scrub for my skin as I do not have overly sensitive skin.
The packaging is alright. It is easy to pour out the product but I did find I was getting more out then needed.
A big downfall to this product is the container looks like there is a lot inside but when you flip it over there is a huge hole in the center! Kind of a rip off... I mean I probably won't be using this super fast but I think they should have just made a smaller container and get rid of the hole.
I also don't like the mess, it kind of felt like I had sand all over my shower. I had to make sure I got everything down the drain when I was done...i'm a bit of a neat freak but it's not unbearable.
The smell isn't overly nice either, I can't even smell the Cranberry or Pomegranate.
Would I repurchase? No
Would I recommend? Yes if you like a little bit stronger of an exfoliant then what most drug stores carry.
As much as this wasn't a wow product for me, I will use it up because it is alright, just not amazing for my skin type.
Have you tried this before?
