This is a naturally sulphate-free cleanser which incorporates very finely ground peach stone to genly exfoliate, removing the excess oil and pore clogging dead skin debris to leave your skin feeling beautifully soft and with a smoother texture.
It contains Willow Bark extract which is a source of naturally occurring Beta Hydroxy Acids to gently exfoliate, unblock pores and clear and cleanse your complexion.
Blocked pores are what causes blackheads and form a breeding ground for acne bacteria.
What’s So Special About Willow Bark for Acne?
Salicylic Acid, an ingredient found in many prescription acne treatments is found naturally in willow bark, so if you care about putting naturally derived products on your skin, this is another reason to try this scrub for yourself.
Burt’s Bees state on their website:-
“Rather than buy the synthetic alternative, willowbark extract is straight from the natural source. Yes, it costs more and is more difficult to manufacture, but it’s worth it because it’s natural and it works better with your skin.”
Other ingredients in this deeply cleansing pore scrub include Golden Seal extracts which, like willow bark has a natural astringent effect on your skin, plus extracts of sea algae and ginger which helps to nourish your skin with the essential minerals they contain.
How To Use This Great Pore Scrub Product
It couldn’t be simpler really, simply moisten your face with warm water and apply the product using either your fingertips or a clean wash cloth to gently massage it all over your face and neck.
Top tip: to be sure that you do not experience any irritation, the first time you use the product just basically wash your face with it, don’t massage in too strongly – after the first use, gently build up to the level of exfoliation you need for your skin – just don’t be tempted to give your skin a really good scrub the first time you use it! As this enthusiastic reviewer reports:-
“Since using this (it’s been about 4 months now) my skin has become so much softer and I barely have any breakouts! It also smells wonderful! My one tip is to not scrub it into your skin that much, though, as doing so irritated my skin. Just use it as you would a regular wash, it “scrubs” your face enough when you wash it off.”
Sensible Precaution To Take
You need to take care to avoid getting the product into your eyes because of the exfoliating peach stone grains contained within it.
When You Are Done
Just rinse your face really well with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.
Follow the application of your Peach and Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub with a light moisturizer from the great Burt’s Bees selection!
