  • Scrubbed me the wrong way!

    Feb 4, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good exfoliator, cool to mix with favourite cleanser, no fragrance
    Cons: a bit too harsh

    Summary: I really gave this product a go because I am a fan of The Body Shop and when I bought the Japanese Washing grains I still believed that TBS could do no wrong. It was also one of the first exfoliators that I tried - it was the ... read more

  • This is how you use Japanese Washing Grains!

    Apr 16, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Exfoliates well, simple ingredients, no comodogenic ingredients
    Cons: no cons

    Summary: I've tried a heap of exfoliants, not to mention skin care products, and in my search for a good exfoliant with no pore clogging ingredients, I came across Japanese Washing Grains. They sound good, look organic and natural, and only contain one ... read more

  • I wish they'd bring it back!

    Pros: Exfoliates; controls oil; removes blackheads; leaves skin very smooth
    Cons: Discontinued

    Summary: As a teenager in the 1970's, I used Helena Rubenstein's washing grains. They were WONDERFUL. I never found anything as good until 20 years later when I tried the Body Shop's Japanese Washing Grains. They too are WONDERFUL. I bought the ... read more

    Pros: I didn't need that top layer of skin anyway
    Cons: Millions of azuki beans died for this product

    Summary: ...and you'll find a product that is disturbingly similar to The Body Shop's Japanese Washing Grains! The concept behind this product is that with a little water, you can create an amazing all-natural exfoliating paste that will renew your ... read more

  • More beans, please.......

    Oct 30, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: no perfume, does its job
    Cons: none

    Summary: Ah hah!! Perhaps the azuki bean holds the "ancient secret" that keeps the Japanese women's skin so radiant...... Since there is a Body Shop in every airport these days, and the delays seem to keep getting longer and longer, I have ... read more

  • I prefer to eat them!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The actual bean is very yummy, but in pastries, not in this concoction
    Cons: exfoliates a bit too harshly. Irritated my skin; no benefits to using azuki beans--could've been kidney beans, for all the difference it made.

    Summary: I have a confession. When I was in college, I had this terrible habit of trying out my roommate's beauty products that she had on the bathroom sink. I would lock myself in the bathroom and begin to experiment with whatever new product she purchased. ... read more

  • Wonderful gentle facial scrub

    Sep 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: long lasting, not harsh
    Cons: need to rinse very thoroughly

    Summary: I have to say that the Japanese washing grains is one of my favorite facial scrubs. You shake a little into the palm of your hand and combine it with a squirt of cleanser or a bit of water to make a paste. I like to add enough liquid so that it's ... read more

  • Still Around?

    Aug 30, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powder form
    Cons: Doesn't work

    Summary: I first tried Japanese Washing Grains in 1993, and I've actually not seen this product on the shelves in a while...so perhaps it's being gradually discontinued? This is not a great exfoliator--I think when the product first came out it ... read more

  • Not One of My Favorites...

    Aug 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: no residue left on skin after rinsing, has exfoliation properties
    Cons: messy, stinky, texture is too rough

    Summary: I usually like most products from The Body Shop, but the Japanese Washing Grains are all washed up! I purchased this product as an impulse purchase. I'm a self-professed cosmetic junky. The Japanese Washing Grains are made from ... read more

  • Harsh exfoliator, and I'm allergic

    Aug 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Gets off dead skin cells
    Cons: Too harsh, may cause allergic reaction

    Summary: I first tried the Body Shop's Japanese Washing Grains about 6 years ago. It was the first facial exfoliating product I had ever used, so I really didn't know what to expect. The Japanese Washing Grains did seem to exfoliate my skin well, so it ... read more
