Talking Just purchased Queen Helene Mint Scrub!

I love the masque so much I figured I should try the scrub too! Anyone have any comments about it?

Thanks,
21

i tried that before, it didn't work that well because i have sensitive skin so it made my face really red and it burned.

i'm glad it works for you though (the mask).
Just be careful!

I personally wouldn't use anything that has rough edges to exfoliate, such as walnut or oyster shell. It puts tiny cuts in the skin that can spread bacteria. I've read that you should only use man made materials like microbeads the don't have edges. Only my opinion though.

sounds a little harsh on the skin while on Accutane.

Hi all and thanks for the replies.
I know everyone says that, but even though I am on accutane my skin is no more sensitive than usual. I have heard good things about mint scrub as compared to St Ives (what I am using now). I like exfoliants- any other less harsh alternatives people like?

I'm in a dilemma...the mint scrub keeps me nearly clear each month...all this talk about it putting cuts in your skin freaks me out...if I stop using it, I feel I might break out because there will not be anymore removing of dead skin, etc.
Is there anything out there that makes you smooth, cleans your pores?
