    i started using this product because i needed a clarifying mask. i'm in my 30s with adult acne. most things i use are too harsh or ineffective. i found this stuff on the bottom shelf in [...] one day and have been hooked ever since (my[...] stopped arrying it) i use it about every other night before bed. i love the tingling, but i can tell that some people may find it too much. it clears my acne, but doesn't overdry this "not as young as i used to be" face! :)

    I got this because of the great reviews, but I feel like there needs to be more diversity of opinions about this here.

    If you like St. Ives Apricot Scrub but want something perhaps a smidge gentler than this may appeal to you. I do not care for this because the granules in this feel very jagged and sharp (this feels like the kind of scrub great for giving your face micro-tears). I like that this is good for oily skin and removes oil well, but these walnut shell powder scrubs are just to sharp for facial use in my opinion.

      Comments about Queen Helene Refreshing Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub, 6 oz:

      I picked this up on a whim to use while I spent seven weeks studying abroad in Barbados (June - July). I have extremely dry skin. This saved my face. It was so hot and humid that my makeup and sunscreen would slide right off my face within five minutes. I used this everyday and managed to not break out horribly. I highly recommend using this anytime you are headed somewhere very hot and humid.

        Comments about Queen Helene Refreshing Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub, 6 oz:

        This feels like wet sand, with fine particles that won't irritate your face. This scrub can be used daily, with a light hand, in the summer or for oily skin. The mint scent is mild and feels refreshing. A little product goes a long way. It has really improved the texture of my combination skin and has helped reduce dry flakes after a shower. A true scrub; not merely bubbles suspended in soap.

            Comments about Queen Helene Refreshing Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub, 6 oz:

            I love this scrub. I found it by accident, just browsing your website for facial scrubs, and it was one of the least expensive options. After I tried it and discovered how fine the scrubbing grains are, I've recommended it to several friends and given it as gifts to some. They like it for the same reasons I do. The mint julep is my fave scent, but QH makes others that are just as fine and work just as well. I can,and do,use this daily without damaging my skin. I hope you keep this in stock forever; can't find it anywhere else.

                My husband and I both love this exfoliant. He uses it daily and I use it about 3x per week. It has a pleasant minty smell, and it's fairly gentle. I have sensitive and acne prone skin and it doesn't irritate.

                  Comments about Queen Helene Refreshing Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub, 6 oz:

                  If there were a food that tasted as good as this scrub smells, i'd LITERALLY weigh a ton. This doesn't leave my skin red AT ALL after I use it, and it doesn't cause me any irritation. As far as effectiveness goes, I can't really say much. This product makes my skin look, feel, and smell amazing right after I use it, but I honestly can't say that after x weeks of use, (i've been using it for about 3 months (twice every week)) you'll have amazing skin. I still break out sometimes, but then again, sometimes my skin looks perfect. I can't say that this product causes break outs, but it definitely doesn't prevent them. That being said, I DO think it takes away some of the redness in blemishes. I'll continue to use this product because I like the immediate affects, but unfortunately I cant say that this is the one and only scrub i'll ever use. Still, it's a great product and definitely worth a try.

                  The review gets an extra star for smell. Yes, it smells THAT good.

                      This is an old favorite o fmine that I keep returning to. Not to harsh for weekly use. I find that regular exfollation makes all my skin products work better. Works as well or better than the more expensive scrubs.

                        I have used for years, and come back again to it if I can not find it and have to use something else. I think it is close to other very pricey stuff just like it.
