Rating: This strawberry extract is absolutely wonderful for a daily face wash! Never before have I experienced such profound results! My pimples reduced from over ten to twenty pimples per month to one, tiny, short-lived pimple every month! Incredible and easy to mix with clay, essential oils and carrier oils for easy application and amazing results! I recommend it to anyone with large pores or pesky pimples or blackheads and the price is wonderful!

Rating: Strawberries contain salicylic acid. As part of a facial mask, this was effective as exfoliater, making pores smaller, skin look brighter/shinier. Very impressed with the effects and so much easier than grinding up hard to find strawberries(due to season).

Rating: I just tried using this to add a hint of color to my CP soaps. It looks kind of gray when first added to the trace (just used .275 oz per 55oz batch) but pleasantly surprised me when the soap dried and the gray turned to a nice shade of light pink!

Rating: These fruit extracts are fun! I do agree that mixing with a water is easiest. I used this in which hazel to make a toner and in the face wash gel. The toner turned out great. For the gel I think next time I'll mix it with floral water first to blend it more easily. I put way too much in the gel and the smell was a little weird (like rotting strawberries). It also made the gel runny. When I added more gel base the smell backed off and got better and it lathered better.

Rating: I used in lotion and I do not like it too much. It may be good to your skin but the strawberry smell is not very pleasing. The color is not the greatest, either. However, I have never tried in facial mask. It may just be very good for that.

Rating: I like the color, but don't use it on sopas it clumps and I used it for lip balms and did not melt either. It mixes with water well not oils or soaps. The color changes to blackish in melt and pour soaps and looks like pimples.

Rating: Perfect for face masks. Mixed together with honey, clay and helichrysum hydrosol reduces pores and really gives a kick to the skin.
By:Edith, Hurricane, Utah Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Jan-2007
Rating: A clay mask with an addition of strawberry extract is a marvel for the skin ! It really works ! Strawberry extract tones the skin, unifies its appearance, and you feel and look clean and refreshed.
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This product is so cool! Since you can't use fresh strawberries in face masks and other cosmetics to be packaged, this product (which is dried strawberries finely powdered) is the next best thing. I've used it in my "make your own facial products" class, specifically in a "strawberry & chocolate" mask where I mixed it with kaolin clay and a little bit of cocoa powder. smelled good enough to eat!
