This is one of the harsher exfoliants I've tried recently, but it didn't irritate my skin at all. It did a great job of sloughing away dry, flaky skin and it really brought impurities to the surface. The downside to that, of course, is that you'll have a few blemishes as a result. This exfoliant smells just like oats to me. I didn't bother me at all, but some people might not particularly enjoy that about it! I really loved this product and I plan on adding it to my skin routine!
It wasn't so much this particular detergent that I loved (although I liked it just fine), but more the packaging. I've seen other brands detergents in these cute little plastic pouches before, but it never occurred to me to purchase them instead of the liquid detergent that I've been using for years. Since getting these samples, I've switched to buying these concentrated packs in my go-to brand (All Free & Clear). My laundry area is so much tidier and there will never be drips of detergent anywhere again!
Ok, now for the May Birchbox:
It's Gossip Girl themed, and although I don't watch the show, it looks like a great box! I was so excited when I saw Kerastase products inside. Ever since reading about them on Veronika's blog, I've been dying to try them. What did you think of this month's box?! Did you have any favorites from the April box?
