Queen Helene Oatmeal 'N Honey Natural Facial Scrub

Brand: Queen Helene

Product: Oatmeal 'N Honey Natural Facial Scrub

Price: 3.99
Link To Product: Queen Helene

What It Does: The exfoliating action of the Oatmeal draws out impurities, unclogs pores and removes dry, dead cells from the surface of your skin.  Pure, wholesome Honey helps replenish lost moisture and protects your skin from the harsh elements.
Scent: smells just like oatmeal cookies

Texture:  coarse walnut shells for a more abrasive scrub

Review: Many people rave about Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque but their other products are often overlooked.  The Oatmeal 'n Honey natural face scrub is a great alternative for those who like the graininess of the St Ives apricot mask but want something slightly less abrasive.  This mask is similar in texture with the sandiness but the creamy part is a bit more watery than the St. Ives mask.  My only gripe with this scrub is it's not very convenient for traveling -- the lid unscrews easily and it seems a lot of the product falls out and collects in the lid.  It definitely gives your skin a good scrub down -- not like the weak department store scrubs -- this is a REAL scrub.  And it's absolutely awesome as a body scrub.  It does tend to leave a residue behind so be sure to follow up with a good cleanser.

I'm always a bit apprehensive about these short of scrubs that use walnut shells as my skin is pretty sensitive. It's a bit too harsh for me. However, I've recently learned a DIY oatmeal scrub which uses just the oatmeals. Might give it a try. Never knew oatmeals were good for a facial scrub hehe
Thanks for the review!

What a great price -- I believe you don't need to pay a lot of money for a good scrub.
