Perfect for oily but sensitive skin

Location: London
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “gentle, effective”

Simply amazing! Very gentle and doesn't scratch my skin. I use it couple of times a week and follow an advice that I read among the reviews, to leave it for few minutes before rinsing away. It leaves skin super smooth without leaving it dry and dehydrated at all! Great with combination with facial wash.

Wow, just wow

Location: Essex, UK

Skin tone: Fair

I have to say, I have tried a lot of facial exfoliators, that promise the stars but what I've ended up with is more like Milky Way Magic Stars. I've been using Benefit make-up range for years, but never tried the skincare range as I thought it would end up being a overpriced disappointment. Whilst I still maintain that the skincare range would be more desirable if it was cheaper I have never been so happy with a product as I have this. The refined finish facial polish is by far the best I have ever used, it has minimized the large pores on my nose, removed all of the dirt and grime stuck in said pores (better than any other brand I have used). My skin is so soft and glowing I cant stop looking in the mirror. I would highly recommend this product, I have combination skin with a particular oily T-zone that gets progressively worse during the day, meaning I usually have to blot or re-apply my makeup. 5 Stars

I had purchased the facial exfoliator sample. In doing so, I read the instructions on how to use it and then came to the horrible realization that this product contains MICROBEADS and it actually made it sound as if it were good for your skin. In reality, it's plastic and it pollutes waterways. Unlike soap it does not dissolve! It will end up in your fishes stomach which will then be consumed thus, you will be eating this plastic!

really refreshing!

Location: St. Louis, MO, USA
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “cute packaging, gentle yet effective, refreshing”

I purchased this product in the travel b.right set first, but bought the full size of this with it based on reviews. I decided that I would love to try the skin care line because I love Benefits beauty products! Needless to say, this did not fall short of my expectations! It is just the right size grain to give you that really clean feeling after you use it. I will use this everyday after washing my face because it is gentle enough, even with sensitive skin. I feel like this product removes dead skin cells, and expect that it will do wonders for reducing black heads (a good scrub deep cleans your pores!) The price is decent since you only need a tiny bit with each use. So far this is one of the best exfoliators for the face I have tried yet! I will definitely be recommending this product to all of my friends!

Great exfoliator and smells amazing!

Location: Oregon
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

My friend recommended this exfoliator to me so I wanted to give it a shot. I am always a little hesitant with exfoliators because I have sensitive skin and I've had some bad luck in the past. This one works! I didn't find it too rough or too soft. The scrub is nice and does the job. It really does smell amazing and refreshing. The bottle is a nice size so you should have this for a while.

Didn't do alot for my sensitive skin!

Location: United Kingdom
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light

I needed a new exfoliator so went for this one! I've been a little bit disappointed as it hasn't done alot for my skin. I do have a lot of dry skin with oily areas, and it hasn't got rid of any dry skin at all, and made my skin feel somewhat tight! However, initially it does make your skin feel smooth after using it! I'm a lover of benefit makeup usually, but this product didn't work for me!

This facial polish makes my skin feel SO soft, plus it smells great and feels great on my face. I even like the design of the bottle and the cap that looks like cork. It's like a pretty decoration on my shower shelf and a treat for my face every time!

Just Amazing

Location: Wakefield, South Kingstown, RI 02879,...

Love that it's: “amazing, smells good, gentle, works”

I'm totally addicted to scrubs, but I have very sensitive skin. After using this, my skin was not red at all, it was super smooth, and didn't get dried out. I have a clarisonic, so I get some exfoliation from that every day, so I only use this about once a week when I need an extra boost of smooth skin. It also smells AMAZING.

Love the product, HATE the packaging

Location: Undisclosed
Skin tone: Light

I love this product-- it works great and makes my skin feel fresh, clean and healthy. But I HATE hate HATE the bottle. It looks cute on my shelf, but when I get down to the last 1/3 or so of the product, I can't get it out without either squeezing so hard I nearly injure my hand or removing the top of the bottle and sweeping my pinky in to get some out. It's like a glass bottle of ketchup without the "hit the 57" trick. And since I'm not in the habit of keeping a butter knife in my shower.... UGH. Package redesign PLEASE.

Amazing Face Scrub

Location: Chelmsford, Essex, UK
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “cleansing, smells good, oil controlling”

As someone with oily skin prone to buildup, I've tried many scrubs and exfoliators. This is the first one I've fallen completely in love with and couldn't live without. I use it every second or third day (although I have sensitive skin I do not find it to be harsh at all) and once a week I spread a layer over my skin and let it dry like a mask. This has done wonders for my oiliness, really clears out the buildup in my skin and leaves it feeling great. It even helps with spots - when I've had sore or painful breakouts, leaving a little of this dabbed onto the spot helps to dry it out and take down the swelling. Overall, this is one of my favorite ever Benefit products (and I have a LOT of Benefit products). I really hope this never gets discontinued. My only gripe is the packaging - the last third to a quater of the product is very, very difficult to get out, and its a shame to waste so much of it. In the end I took a tip from another reviewer and cut the bottle open, scraping the remainder into a glass jar. In future the only thing I would suggest to Benefit would be to make the packaging thinner or more malleable so that we can squeeze the rest of it out!

My skin felt amazing after 1 use!

Location: Vegas
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “perfect, smells amazing, gentle but effective, cute bottle”

I read another review to scrub the face and leave it on for 2 minutes, so I did that- I washed my face, then used this product, and left it on my face while I showered. WOW. It says on the bottle to use this a couple times a week (or similar), but I think it's honestly a gentle enough scrub for me to use every other day, at least. The grit isn't super tiny like some (which you really wouldn't want to use so often), but it's not so big that you can barely feel it scrubbing. It's a perfect middle, and my face is MUCH happier today after using it last night!!! My makeup applied better, which I'm super thrilled about! Oh- my skin is also very dry from my climate, and this helped my moisturizer soak in much better :)

Love that it's: “exfoliating, brightening”

This was my first Benefit product and I think it's my favourite. I've been using it at least once a week for over a year now and my first tube still hasn't run out. You need very little and get excellent results. Smoother, softer and healthier looking skin after each use. Best facial scrub I've ever tried, hands down.

I was having major issues with dry skin and itching. I started using this a week ago and all the issues are gone. I use it as a scrub then let it on my face for a few minutes after then rinse. Love it. It is amazing. I purchased the foundation and pressed powder as well. I love them just as much.

This is such a gentle polish/exfoliator that at first I doubted its effectiveness. However I have been pleasantly surprised - it exfoliates without stripping and causes no redness or aggravated skin. It smells quite lovely too!

This has done wonders for my skin! It is gentle enough for the more sensitive parts of my skin, but effectively remove all the dry skin. It isn't harsh like some other exfoliators that I've used. My skin felt fresh and I would use it about once a week.

AMAZZZZIIIIING!!!! Sucks the bad stuff right out!

Location: Ottawa, ON, Canada
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light

I was first sold on refined finish facial polish when my Benefit rep gave me a brief product demo ... she used the polish on the back of one of my hands, and the redness on the skin of that hand was instantly gone! I suffer from rosacea on my nose and chin, and I immediately thought this product would help with the redness. The first night after using the polish, I scrubbed it on for about a minute, and left it in place for two. For those with a medical background, and maybe some who don't have one, you know that seaweed is used in a lot of woundcare products to absorb drainage ... well, this product has seaweed in it to absorb oil! After leaving it on my skin, and rinsing it off, the sink was full of the dead skin, oil, and environmental crud that was left on my skin after only God knows how long. Talk about gross ... but an amazing indicator of the effectiveness of this product. Again, a lot goes a long way, so the tube will last forever. Since it's only used once every few days, it's very hard to judge how long the one tube will last, but I'm about 1/5 of the way through the bottle after about 6 months of every 3 day use. I use it after Foamingly Clean to get rid of the "stuff" left behind, and to make sure I'm scrubbing off what foamingly clean misses (if anything). I've also noticed a huge reduction in the tiny white bumps on my skin (almost like whiteheads, sort of), and also a reduction in the size of the pores. Not to mention, the redness on my nose has definitely subsided! I guess the best compliement I received after using it was that my skin appeared like it was glowing. One of my coworkers actually asked me if I was pregnant. I was first insulted! But she quickly clarfied stating that my skin was so "radiant" she actually thought I was newly pregnant! I'll take that kind of a compliement anyday! :)

Best Face Scrub!

Location: Brooklyn, NY
Eyes: Brown

This is the best facial scrub out there. The scrubbies are small so it is very safe and gentle on the skin. I suffer from acne and my skin can get flaky at times due to the medicine so I use this 1-2x a week. Works instantly!

this stuff is AMAZING!!!

Location: Beijing,China

Love that it's: “super effective!, flawless”

I bought this a few days ago and tried it the day i got it, and i have to say... this is by far the best exfoliator i have used in a long long time. This cured my long term acne problems, and i am fairly close to flawless skin now! I love how its so nice and smooth, but clears away my pimples effortlessly. The smell is also really nice, and the packaging is just soooo cute. I use this every other day, and its only been 2 weeks and my friends are telling me that my skin has a really nice shine to it now, and that my pimples are gone for good! All in all, this is a really great product, I've told lots of my friends about it, and you should definitely give it a try! This is something you wont regret.... EVER!

From the packaging, to the scent, to the feel and end result... I love love love this product! It didn't dry me out or make me break out like some exfoliators tend to do. It's great for sensative skin but still gives you the results that the more abrasive stuff can do. I would recommend this product to anyone! Definately worth the money!

Love that it's: “heaven”

I love love love this. I have oily skin which is also topically dry. I bought the teaser pack just to try it out, and I am in love. You will love it also. I use it in the shower twice a week, and i leave it on as a mask for 5 mins while i finish washing up. First time I left it on for 15 mins and for me it was a little too long, so i went down to 5 mins and its perfect. You must take advantage of the mask opportunity in this product because it has so many great ingredients, esp the seaweed and glycolic!!! BTW, the granules arent harsh at all, and it smells FAB!!!!

This is definitely my new best friend! It smells divine and really gives you that spa feeling without digging into your wallet as much. It will last you a long time since you only need a little bit. The product itself also moisturises and isn't too rough on the skin, so every skin type can benefit from this.

Bye Bye Dull Skin

Location: Los Angeles , CA
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light

So I just happen to be an exfoliating-a-holic. So I was excited to try this because I am always looking for my next fix. Off the bat i love the packaging ( it looks like skincare a mermaid would use). Surprisingly for being a scrub fiend I like my scrubs on the more gentle side so I can use them once a day at night. I wouldn't call this scrub "harsh" but I would only use it a couple times a week at most. But thats fine because I do crave that extra scrub down and the Refined Finish Facial Polish definitely delivers that. My skin was very smooth and glowly afterwards. And a little goes along way too so I feel like I am going to get more than my moneys worth. But like I said before I wish it was a little more gentle because I like it so much I want to use it everyday!
