J.R. Watkins Gentle Pore Scrub Review

Apologies for being so slack lately with the posting. I purchased this product a few weeks ago from Target and wanted to give it a fair shot before posting a review.

Ingredients / Contains:
Water, Vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, stearic acid, glycerin, Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, Prunus armeniaca (apricot) seed powder, sodium borate, xanthan gum, behenyl alcohol, sucrose stearate, sucrose distearate, Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, Salix alba (willow) bark extract, Chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, Hydrastis canadensis (golden seal) extract, Hedychium coronarium root extract, Fucus vesiculosus extract, Citrus medica limonum (lemon) peel oil, gluconolactone, sodium benzoate

REVIEW: For my skin, the oils were a bit much for a scrub.  I have combination skin and this was just too much for me, even in the driest of spots.  The scrub itself works fine, but when I use a scrub, I like for my face to feel clean and "brand new."  This product was just the opposite.  It left my skin feeling oily (like I needed to use my St. Ives scrub) and just not clean.  If I didn't use a moisturizer after cleansing, this might would work, but for me, it's just a bit too oily (hence grape seed oil being the second ingredient).

All-in-all, I don't completely dislike the product.  I may actually love it once it gets really cold here and my skin is screaming for some extra moisture.  However, right now, or in the summer, I can't see using it.
