Fresh Sugar Face Polish

First off: this really is a polish rather than a scrub. The sugar granules in this are so fine that I found they had all melted away about 30 seconds into scrubbing.

Fresh says that you can use this as a mask and leave it on your face for a little while and then scrub it off, and because it’s in a moisturizing base, it feels so good on the skin as a mask.  It’s got a sweet lemon scent and I kind of love that the ingredients look and feel so natural.

I would only recommend that users with dry skin leave this on, as this scrub is sort of oily (but it does not separate) and that means that it might be nourishing for those with dryer skin. Otherwise, simply wet your face, rub it on, and then rinse thoroughly.

I found that there was a slight layer of oil that was left on my face, but I kind of leave it there when I have dry skin and just use a toner when I have oily skin. You could use this to wash off makeup, but you will have to use a regular soap after using the polish because the oil won’t rinse away with the water.

$30 at Sephora.

    i have pretty dry skin and i LOVE this stuff.
    use it only once a week or so and it leaves my face feeling baby soft. the little bit of scrub is nice, but i definately use another scrub every other day or so.

    I have mostly oily skin with some flaky spots. I like this a lot. I only use it a couple of times a month and my skin feels smooth and baby soft afterward, with no breakouts.

    What kind of oil is used in the scrub?

    Good question! It uses a mixture of oil and here they are in order listed on the jar (from most to least, that is):

    Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil, Hazel Seed Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Mango Seed Oil

    Thanks! Those are some excellent oils but I agree, it can be overwhelming for someone whose skin is not especially dry; especially in combination with the sugar, which is already moisturizing as you pointed out.
