Sweet Kiwi

My new favourite thing: Mario Badescu Kiwi Face Scrub

The look and smell of this face scrub make me want to eat it, even though I know that logically it will not taste very good. There's even little kiwi seeds in there (though I'm not convinced that they're real kiwi seeds. Aren't kiwi seeds more the size/shape of poppy seeds? These look like black sesame seeds. I'm calling bullshit on this one.) Even though it's called a scrub, it's not too abrasive. It was actually really soothing; it felt a bit cool when applied and was very creamy (in a non-greasy way.) The only downside to this scrub is that the faux kiwi seeds are a bit tough to rinse off and when you're drying off after your shower, and you find one on your leg, you might think you've got fleas. This is easily remedied by washing your face in the sink, not in the shower. Or by not being crazy.


  1. What skin type do you have?

    I might want to try it but I have odd combination skin so I have to ask before I go looking for it.

    I can find it @ Sephora?

  2. Oooh, my face could use a scrub right about now. Thanks for the rec!

  3. Do you think some guy in New Zealand was sitting around one day and said, "Hey, what am I going to do with these tons of kiwi seeds we have from all the kiwi we eat. I know, let's put them in a face scrub!"

    I'm tellin' ya, it could be true.


  4. I love face scrub, and this one sounds awesome. I think kiwi seeds are more along the size of sesame seeds. They're fairly large.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Thanks for the skincare link earlier - I answered the survey, and now they're sending me a bunch of stuff. Can't wait to try it out!

  6. i'm with raven! tell us about your skin! i'm always scared to use new products because i have sensitive / evil / combination / picky / fickle skin..

  7. Buckets of dittos on the skin care question from me, too.

  8. I love body scrubs / soaps that smell like food.

    I'm always THIS CLOSE to putting them in my mouth.'s weird.
