Scrub Away the Mondays...Queen Helene Pomegranate & Raspberry

Last week I started a new series on facial scrubs called Scrub Away the Mondays. Well today I have my second scrub in the series. Last week's product was a scrub gentle enough for daily use; however this week's scrub although not recommended for daily use, is absolutely one of my favorites. Of all the scrubs I've tried to date, easily one of my Top 3.  This week I'm sharing with you the Queen Helene Refining Pomegranate & Raspberry Natural Facial Scrub.

There is a department store scrub that I had been using but I was looking for a drugstore scrub that was not so cost prohibitive. I first found this product while shopping in my local Sally Beauty Supply.  I had been a user of the Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque for several years so when I saw this I decided to give it a try. 


Product Claims: 

  • For All Skin Types
  • Washes away lifeless surface cells and impurities that dull your skin
  • Contains Pomegranate Oil for added antioxidant protection against the environment's skin-aging effects
  • The Raspberry seeds work to gently expose fresher, more vibrant skin with renewed radiance
  • Paraben-free scrub effectively refines skin's texture and conditions it to maintain a vital moisture balance, which leaves your face feeling wonderfully soft and smooth

My Experiences: 

  • First off, the scent, it's nice, but if I had not seen the label, I don't know that I would recognize it as raspberry or pomegranate
  • While I don't have sensitive skin, and therefore had no negative reaction, I would be cautious if I did have sensitive skin. There is a definite tingling sensation when using this product. It gives me the notion that in addition to the physical exfoliation that there is some sort of chemical exfoliation taking place.
  • With that being said, I love the feel of the exfoliation. It is not as harsh as some other scrubs I have tried. The granules are not sharp or abrasive, but definitely apparent.
  • My skin texture issues are rough patches on my cheeks, chin and on my nose.  This product left my skin soft, smooth, and brightened.
  • I use this product twice weekly and have had no adverse effects.
  • The price is excellent
So the question is would I recommend this product to anyone and would I repurchase it? A definite Yes

Queen Helene® Pomegranate and Raspberry Natural Facial Scrub: 
  • Suggested Retail Price: $4.29; periodically on sale at Sally Beauty
  • Size: Net Wt. 6oz (170 g)
  • Available: The Queen Helene brand is available in several national food, drug, and mass merchandisers, however I've only seen the Pomegranate & Raspberry facial scrub in Sally Beauty.
Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
