Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub - A Scrumptious and Moisturizing Facial Scrub, But Too Coarse!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Smells awesome, leaves face moisturized, natural, no animal testing, exfoliating

Cons:Large particles, glass jar

The Bottom Line: This scrub does a good job of soothing skin, although the scrubbing particles are a bit big for my liking. A nice product, although not my favorite scrub.

Everyone knows I love Burt’s Bees products, so for Christmas, I got a bunch of Burt’s products that I hadn’t tried yet. One of them was the Citrus Facial Scrub. My face is always in need of exfoliation, so I was excited to try out this product.

The scrub comes in a small 2 oz glass jar, which has a metal lid that screws on. In stores, this product runs about $7.00. You can also purchase it online, on sites like BurtsBees.com or drugstore.com.

We blend natural ingredients such as oats, orange peel, ground almonds and ground spices with rose petals to create this luscious facial scrub that’s gentle enough for daily use. Sweet almond oil moisturizes the skin while you exfoliate with ground almonds and spices. The orange oil helps remove traces of dirt or makeup left behind after cleansing. Burt’s Bees Citrus Facial Scrub is recommended for all skin types.


Vegetable glycerin, sweet almond oil, almonds, oat flour, orange peel powder, rose petal powder, pecan shell powder, grapefruit seed extract, nutmeg powder, clove powder, orange oil, tocopherol (vitamin E), rosemary extract, fragrance.

Burt’s Bees products are not tested on animals and are environmentally friendly. I love how the ingredients are natural and gentle.

My Thoughts & Experience

The first thing I noticed was how thick this product is. It is harder than most of my other face scrubs, and you have to dig it out. The directions recommend, “After cleansing your face, mix a small amount of Citrus Facial Scrub with a drop or two of water.” The consistency definitely warrants thinning it out with a little bit of water.

The scrub feels great, although I don’t know how much the particles actually exfoliate. I like scrubs that have a lot of fine particles, whereas this has bigger, chunkier particles. But it is nice to have a nice facial massage using this product. In addition, the scrub itself has a creamy, almost slightly oily feeling, so it goes on very smooth. I don’t know how effective this is in terms of an even exfoliation, but at least it doe make my face feel nice.

The scent is awesome. Once you take it out of the container, you can smell the cloves, nutmeg, and orange. For me, it has a Christmas-y scent, and I love it! (I guess I associate the smell of cloves with the holidays). It is a natural, non-perfumed scent, and is delicious! I don’t like products that are overly perfumed, so this is right down my alley. The scent does linger for a little bit, but nothing overpowering.

When I rinse, my skin feels great. It doesn’t dry out my skin, and instead leaves it feeling moisturized. I think some of the oils in it help to moisturize my skin, or at least not strip my face of oils. Sometimes I wash my face with other things first, like benzoyl peroxide, so I can use this afterwards to clean and soothe my skin, instead of leaving it dried out.

One of the things I really don’t like about this product is the glass jar. Glass is very environmentally friendly and looks great, but I just don’t like it in the shower, especially with soaps or oils on my hands and in the shower. I don’t like the thought of this dropping on the porcelain tub.


I’d easily give this product 4 stars, because it is so healthy, natural, and environmentally friendly. The scent is amazing and my face feels moisturized after using. However, the glass jar and the chunky particles are not my favorite, so I’ll give this three stars. I have a few other facial scrubs that I definitely prefer, compared to this product, because they have finer, more effective scrubbing particles.
