First Response:  I was super excited to see some of the ingredients on this product: willow extract, marshmallow extract; and vitamin e.  At the time I bought this product, I had a very bad sunburn and was hoping to add some serious hydration to the skin after cleansing it.  It seemed to actually bring down the redness in my burn, and my face didn’t peel as bad as usual.  
I did find that my skin felt slightly greasy after rinsing, but it is considered an intense moisture mask.   
Lasting Impression: This product isn’t too bad for the price, but basically this is just a heavy lotion that you rinse away.  For people with dry skin, I would definitely recommend this, but for people with sensitive or oily skin, I would stay clear.  This lotion helped my sunburn, but seemed to aggravate my acne.

First Response: The consistency of this product feels like a very creamy lotion, while the exfoliant in this mix is pumice, which feels like a lot larger of grain than a sugar or salt scrub.
After exfoliating, I left the scrub on my face for a couple of minutes. After rinsing off the scrub, I noticed a feeling almost like menthol, and my skin felt super hydrated.
My face was smooth and soft to the touch, and looked bright and refreshed.  I actually walked around the house, telling people, “feel my face!  Feel how soft it is!”
Lasting Impression: Again, I love the ingredients in this product.  I feel like I’m actually doing something very healthy for my skin when I use this scrub.  My face looked brighter and healthier, and it felt so good – like breezy (for lack of a better word) – and I was so impressed that I went back to Winners and bought another one.  Based on this scrub, I would definitely try the other products in the Una Brennan line.
