Product Review: June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Enzyme Polish

Today I will be reviewing another product I received in my April Birchbox.  This is the June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Enzyme Polish.  The sample I received was 0.5 fl oz.     

Product Details:  Paraben and preservative free, this spicy, detoxifying face and body polish, infused with a powerful pumpkin enzyme, combined with the gentle exfoliation of crushed bamboo and jojoba micro beads helps to cleanse the skin of dead cells. Natural acids polish and refine, while rich emollients leave skin silky smooth, soft and radiant. Powerful patent pending anti-oxidant blend of white, red and green tea extracts combined with goji berry, pomegranate and grape seed extracts help to neutralize free radicals, protect skin from environmental toxins and combat the visible signs of premature aging.  Source.

Where to Buy:  You can buy this product directly from June Jacobs here or from Birchbox here.  The price is the same either way, $60.00 for 3.8 fl oz. 

My Initial Impression:  Another facial scrub, but the pumpkin scent could be the redeeming factor.  The real test would be to see how it made my face look and feel.

  • AMAZING smell- Seriously, this stuff smells like a freshly baked pumpkin pie!  If you like the smell of pumpkin you are going to love the smell of this stuff.  
  • Very nice texture- Unlike most facial scrubs this stuff has a texture that isn't too grainy and isn't too fine.  
  • Feels good going on- It's like a mini massage for my face!
  • Leaves skin feeling clean and smooth after use.
  • Let's face it, at $60.00 this stuff isn't cheap. 
Final Impression:  This was hands down one of my favorite products I received in this months Birchbox.  I LOVED the smell of it as it reminded me of my absolute favorite time of year.  I also loved how it felt going on my face and how smooth and clean it left my face feeling afterwards.  The only downfall I have about this product is the price.  However, although you can use this product on your whole body, I believe that if you just use it on your face you can actually get a lot of uses out of the product and make it last a long time therefore getting your moneys worth. I have been using the sample tube for a little over a week now once a day and there is still a little bit left.  I'm a middle class working mom on a budget so I need to be careful what kind of money I am spending on beauty products (trust me, I spend enough as it is).  With that being said, I would definitely recommend this product if you like facial scrubs because I believe it is worth the money. 

The Birchbox was purchased by me with my own money.  I am not affiliated with Birchbox or June Jacobs.  I am not being paid for my reviews and all opinions are my own personal opinions.
