Origins Never a Dull Moment Skin-Brightening Face Polisher Review

I bought this Origins Skin Brightening Face Polisher because I wanted a 'grainy scrub', after months of chemical exfoliation only. Sometimes I just want to feel that 'sloughing' on my skin! I hope you understand that feeling of physical exfoliation. So started looking for scrubs that were good for normal/dry skin. After reading the ingredient list on the Origins Never a Dull Moment Skin-Brightening Face Polisher, I was intrigued by the effects of bitter orange flower water on my skin. I have kept myself away from Vitamin C based products because for my skin type, I need to use them exclusively or I run into sensitivities and breakouts. I love the effects of lemon sugar scrub on my skin, so I wanted to give this one a try.







The first thing I noticed was the strong mango scent and a bright yellow color that is energizing in its own way. The texture of this face polish is quite thick and refined with a mix of big and small grains. When I massaged this on my skin it felt completely non foaming and more like a gel cream all over my face. As I massage it all over my face, focusing on the t-zone, I can feel the grains sloughing away the dead skin and blackheads. I usually let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing. I feel that I get the most benefit out of these ingredients by allowing it to stay in contact with my skin for a few minutes. My skin feels smooth and fresh. 
I use it every other night or if I use a chemical peel, I wait 3 days before exfoliating with this again. Its  always recommended to use either chemical or physical exfoliators, to prevent skin from losing its pH balance and to keep a healthy moisture barrier. 
This is helping keep my skin looking brighter and smoother. I love the scent and the non drying feel on skin after I wash this scrub off. I am currently working on my acne marks and some scarring, so I will continue to use this with breaks, where I would use my chemical peel and other scar treatments in between. However, even on weeks where I totally relied on this exfoliant I am always satisfied with the results. 
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for brighter, healthier looking skin, especially if you have given up on physical exfoliants like me, then this will definitely be a lovely surprise and something you wouldn't mind repurchasing. Also, the tube packaging is convenient for travelling.
