Beauty Review | Burt's Bees Peach & Willowbark Scrub

Following on from my previous Burt's Bees cleanser review, which was ages ago now, I am now going to review their Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub. I am tentative about using facial scrubs and exfoliators because it's always gamble as to how your skin will react afterwards (for me, anyway). The more regular you exfoliate, the less break out you'll experience, but I always dread breaking out that I don't tend to perservere with this process.

Burt's Bees Peach and Willowbark Scrub is more gentle than my usual exfoliator. The texture that I am usually used to are rougher as exfoliators tend to be. The gritty bits in this face scrub that acts as an exfoliant are actually finely grounded peach stone which are thinly dispersed and the actual texture of the product is a creamy consistency. The fragrance of this is really peachy too, the scent isn't too strongly or overpowering either. This face scrub removes dead skin cells, excess oil and dirt. It also contains willowbark which is a natural ingredient found to unclog pores and clear up your skin. I felt that it left my skin feeling fresh and the fact that it's got lots of natural ingredients in made me feel reassured about using it. I have sensitive skin and had no problems with this exfoliator but even though it is a natural formula, it doesn't necessarily mean you won't get a bad reaction. As with most things, we all react differently to different products so be sure to test it before purchase. I've had a look on the website and it states that this product is now 98.4% natural instead of the 100% that it states on my packaging. I've noticed that this can change from time to time, sometimes they put a sticker of the packaging to update consumers of this information. This product retails at £10.99 and I bought this from a larger branch of Boots store but it is also available on the Burt's Bees website.

  2. I love exfoliators, they are probably the only beauty products I regularly try from different brands. I love the Burt's Bees lip balms, but never thought to try their exfoliator, but I might just put this on my Christmas wish list :) Xx

  10. This sounds so lovely, I'm a huge fan of exfoliators, I'm probably guilty of over doing it sometimes, I just love the feeling of baby soft skin!

  11. I love how the exfoliating bits are actually peach kernels as they won't simply dissolve in the water after 5 min like most of the face scrubs I have tried x

  12. I think I'm going to add this to my list of things to try. I need to use more natural products. I have to get through this tube of Clean & Clear first though. LOL

  14. I adore Burts Bees, every product they do! I've found that it's the only thing that works for my super sensitive skin, and love that everything in their products is natural. They always smell so good too, mmm!
