  • Customer Service: I really heart the philosophy behind this company! Annmarie, Evelyne & Lisa have been awesome! You can tell that they all really LOVE what they do!! Lisa responded ASAP, was so sweet and soooo helpful! :) FAB customer service all around.
  • Loved: That it's gentle enough to use on my eyes, and the spices don't burn them either.
  • Hated: That it's in a jar. I think a shaker bottle with a flip-cap (like a spice bottle) would be easier to use! The price. 
  • The GG's Final Thoughts: I'm a scrub-girl through and through... but by looking at this product, I thought it was going to be waaaaaay too gentle for me. It's perfect though! I would never imagine that I would have gotten such a gentle, clean and effective exfoliation with something that looked like this... it's outstanding!  I have to tell you that at first I was a little snooty about the smell, it's not bad- just not what I'm used to in my bathroom. As soon as I realized it smelled just like something I'd add a pinch of at dinner, I got over it :) So, don't let the exotic aroma deter you! If you LOVE cooking, you will get past this when you see how your skin looks and feels. Trust me. You can totally use this with just water, but my FAVE way to use this is with the Annmarie Aloe-Herb Cleanser! I use both together to remove my eye makeup... yes, I use it on my eyes- it's really that gentle! Now keep in mind that I would never even consider using a scrub on my eyes because it's such a delicate area. And to tell you the truth, I was also amazed by the fact that it didn't burn my eyes... wahhhh? That, in itself was a miracle! So in my opinion, I wouldn't buy this without the Aloe-Herb Cleanser. Oh, and PS- I use the remaining mixture to exfoliate my hands... worked wonders this winter! LOVE This stuff! Thanks for all your amazing products Annmarie! Keep 'em coming! Muah! xo
