Why Didn't This Beauty Product Work For Me??!!
We've tackled this topic before, and once again, the question has re-surfaced:
Why didn't this beauty product work for me?!
Take a look at the bottle of Clean & Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Scrub That's a mouthful. We found some at Walmart for $4.47. An inexpensive price for a sizable 5 oz.. And as you know with a facial scrub, you don't need a huge amount to cleanse, so it's very economical.
On the surface, this scrub looks great, advertised to wash away, grease, grime, makeup, etc. It's made with caffeine, papaya, and lemon in a microbead formula, designed with strong scrubbing and exfoliating power. And it won't clog pores. Plus---tons of customer reviews rate the facial scrubber pretty highly.
Then why do we have 3 nasty pimples forming along our chin this morning, after using the Clean & Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Scrub for just 2 days??
Just a coincidence?
We think not. We rarely get break-outs these days. Rarely, let us repeat. We are fuming.
We found the product be glue-y in texture. The microbeads don't seem to have any scrubbing strength, and the formula does NOT wash away easily. Nor does the facial scrub keep our complexion grease-free.
So, how did we go wrong?
Sometimes, beauty products don't do what they are supposed to do for 100% of the users who use them. Period.
We have found that beauty science has come a long way, but not every formula will work for you, me, or them.
Simply, cut your losses. Toss the product out, or try to get your money refunded. And move on----There are tons of beauty products that WILL work and make you look amazing.
We have super oily skin, and maybe that's the reason the scrub didn't appear to live up to the hype. We need something a bit stronger.
As for the 3 nasty pimples, we'll survive. We're still looking for a superior facial scrub.
