This product is so amazing. My skin type is dry and acne prone. I was told (after many dermatology appointments and expensive skin treatments) by an esthetician (thank god for her) that my skin is so dry that my skin is clogging its pore with my dry skin and that I must exfoliate every day to help open my pores to allow for acne treatments to penetrate, as well as lotions. Well that was a year and a half ago. I stayed with her and did microdermabrasion and chemical peels to get through the layers of dry skin. I have been battling acne since I started college at 18, I just turned 27 and since using this product I don't even use acne treatment products. I have spent thousands of dollars, as well as my parents on clearing up my skin. I was even on accurate a few years back. This product has moisturizing qualities, so moisturizing that sometimes I don't use lotion afterward, which is huge for me considering how dry I am.
My routine is to remove my face make up and eye make up with extra virigin olive oil. I rub that all over for a minute or so until my face looks like a hot mess. Then remove that oil with a hot wash cloth. I get fingers wet and scoop out a small chunk of the Burt's and apply it to my face which is hardly damp but a tad, tad, oily. I rub pretty vigoursly, but that's the joy of this stuff, the more water you have on your face or hands, the less exfoliating the product will be and vice versa. Now with the EVOO, like dissolves like. My face is not greasy but make up generally is so it takes it right off. And EVOO is even better for people WITH oily skin for that same reason.
For people who say its messy, I don't have that problem with the way I use it. It takes off any excess make up but I wouldn't use it as a make up remover. I use it to clean and exfoliate my skin.
I was shown this product about a year ago but was sick of trying new products and since this didn't cater to acne prone skin or contain 900 harsh chemicals that make my face fall off I wasn't interested. I then decided to give it a shot since I love most other Burt's products and noticed that it wasn't ever on the shelves long and since there was one left one day, I bought it. Since then, I have told two other friends. The one has been doing the EVOO and scrub trick. She has already had beautiful skin but she is crazy about it. She said her skin as never felt so good. I actually just ordered her two jars because she can't find it anywhere. And my other girlfriend has been trying to find it as well since she struggles with oil and acne.
I moved a month ago to an extremely dry location and my skin has been completely under control. I also had a baby 7 weeks ago and with all the pregnancy hormones for 9 months as well as the hormonal changes after giving birth, my skin is better than ever. I swear by this product. Corny as it may be, it has changed my life.

I bought this based on the review of other drugstore.com customers. I like that this is an all nature product, and it was not tested on animals. I previously was using the L'Occitane Olive facial scrub and thought that I would try this because it is much cheaper, unfortunately, it is by far one of the worst facial scrubs I have every used.
It has a very dense and hard texture, it is not at all creamy or easy to dispense. You have to really dig into the jar to get it out. When you apply it onto your face (even if you add water), it remains to dense and hard that you have to scrub so hard. I had to pull and tuck on my face to try to get the scrub to work. Ladies, you know you should be gentle on your face, all the pulling and tucking is a big no-no in trying to prevent aging.
I have other Burt's Bees products, and I love them...this, however, is not going down on my list of repeat purchases.

Comments about Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub, 2 oz:

I use this product every morning in the shower, then Aveeno Moisturizing Bar, and Thayer's witch hazel pads for a toner. My face has completely changed from dull to glowing. I love this new routine. This scrub is gentle enough to use everyday even on my sensitive skin.

Service and delivery comments:

Fast service. Product in tact.

    Comments about Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub, 2 oz:

    I don't even remember if I wrote a review about this product but I am going to again.
    I used this product back when I was a teenager ('99). It improved my skin and smells delicious (like Sweet Potato Pie).
    Right now I am using Pangea's scrub and it smells good and all but doesn't compare to this one. I can't wait to purchase it again.
    For people that couldn't figure out how to use it you have to use a little water. Not too much.

    Comments about Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub, 2 oz:

    Once I figured out how to use this scrub ~ I really like it. You have to add the right amount of water to the paste, for the right consistency. If you don't you will have thick paste or runny scrub. It lasts a lot longer than I originally thought. It makes my skin so soft and silky. The smell is a little odd, but if you can get past the scent it is worth it.

      This is a nice product. Different from other scrubs that I've tried. You only need a little to use it. Use a couple drops of water to soften then scrub your face. Has a nice smell and texture. Doesn't dry out your skin.

      Comments about Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub, 2 oz:

      I don't have a clue what the other more positive reviewers are talking about because I bought it based on what was said and wow, what a waste of money! It has a texture somewhat similar to kids play-dough but much harder to work into a suitable texture for exfoliating. I even tried mixing it using Burt's Bees own orange essence facial cleanser with orange oil! It's somewhere between play-dough and mini chunks of brownie! I'm not about to use glass in a shower for the obvious reason - things tend to get slippery and fall so used it before showering but this didn't do anything. Burt's Bees has lots of good products and uses mostly all-natural stuff and that's why I like the brand but this one really needs re-working. Sorry Burt's Bees and fans. Most things are a hit but this is a miss.

      I love using this scrub in the shower it's amazing and my skin feels great afterwards, but sometimes it needs to be backed up with a moisturizer. Great if you' re looking for an all natural scrub that won't empty your pockets.

            I can't believe that something this inexpensive works so well. I've used many different high end products, but the results from this are just as good, if not better. I met friends for dinner after using this for the first time and was told that my skin was glowing! Wow! I love the fact that it has all natural ingredients, and it smells great! It reminds me of apple pie.
