WOW! This really helps to exfloliate your problem areas. I find it helps with oily skin issues as well! I mix water and baking soda to make an effective scrub. Thumbs up.

Works great as an exfoliator. I mix it with my cleanser (L'oreal go 360 cleanser for sensitive skin) everyday. Gentle yet effective. Only bummer is I keep the box in a plastic ziploc in my shower and the box still gets soggy which in turn makes the bs clumpy. Maybe I will go out and get a plastic bottle to transfer the contents of the box to so it doesnt get wet or soggy.

All natural


Bottom line: I would recommend this. It was too abrasive for my sensitive skin the first time I used it, but I learned putting more water helps. I think I will start using this as I would a cleanser.

Ok, I ran out of my Caudalie face scrub. Very expensive stuff but I have been using it forever and loved it. I found myself on a tighter budget and decided to try baking soda as a scrub. My conclusion: IT IS WONDERFUL!! I used it the first time w/ just water but it was a little hard to rinse off. So, you need to use it with your face soap/wash. Mix the soda a wash together and then scrub and your skin looks absolutely beautiful. I have to admit I was skeptical. I lOOOOOOve skin care products. But this one is a keeper. An A+ in my book

For the face, it works okay. I've used better stuff. I used it on my hair and it was too drying, leaving it straw-like and tangled. My hair also fell out in chunks. I stopped using it on my teeth as well, for I was told that it's a bit too abrasive and that it wears down the enamel. I also found it ineffective as a deodorant. Too harsh for my pits. I ended up with bright red raw and itchy skin that then turned a crusty brown, yeah, it all sounds so gross and it looked as gross(BUT, mixed with aloe vera/cornstarch baby powder, it works, AFTER I apply my homemade lemon-witch hazel-Sea Breeze deo spray)! LOVE it for cleaning up my stove, though! Gets EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING!Update:I also mix a bit of baking soda with cornstarch as a face powder and so far, this has been the ONLY thing to keep my makeup from melting! No problems using this. Now I don't have to mop up my greasy face every hour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

what a wonderful thing! I had no idea to use Baking Soda, until I read the reviews on MUA. I can't find a gentle exfolitator that doesn't require alot of patience, effort and risk. I do like La Roche Posay's Gommage but...it takes FOREVER to get it off your skin, and it's not as effective as I'd like. I have been using Baking Soda, and I have to say, it's been good so far. I even use it with my Clarisonic once a week...nothing bad has happened yet. I think we have a weiner :D

This is now the only scrub that I will use on my face, it is def. HG material. I was really uncertain how my super sensitive skin would react, but as long as I'm gentle when massaging it on my skin, I haven't had a bad reaction so far.
I use it every other day and the main reason I love it so much is that on top of making my skin glowy and the pores more refined, I have found that it helps to heal my breakouts in record time too! I have also found that when I use it in the evening, when I wake up in the morning my skin is so much less oily, which is a big bonus.
I will continue using this, for as long as I see these great results, overall very happy and thankful to MUA for suggesting this.
UPDATE: still using this 4 years later! But as my skin is a little drier and more sensitive these days, I only use it a few time a week and it works so well on my blackheads and flaky patches.

Once a week, I love to mix a bit of baking soda into my regular shampoo. It works as an awesome clarifier that gets rid of all the gunk and buildup from hairsprays, hair gels, and any other hair product. It also makes your hair REALLY shiny, smooth, soft, and manageable.

You can either use the soda in your regular shampoo and just rinse it out, or you can make a deep conditioner: just mix the soda with your regular conditioner, lather it all over your hair, and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Then rinse, and your hair will feel amazing! Make sure you rinse REALLY well, and once your hair dries, brush it thoroughly to make sure all the baking soda is out.

Seriously, for a few bucks, a box of baking soda is SO worth it. All-natural, really easy, not messy, and excellent as a hair treatment!

it makes me cringe to read how many people use this to brush their teeth. baking soda is very abrasive to your teeth and gums. the tooth structure you wear away cannot be replaced. the recession you will end up with can only be resolved with grafting. there are many effective methods to whiten your teeth that don't cause so much damage.

This is the most simple, inexpensive amazing way to maintain MY skin - i can't speak for everyone because we all have different skin needs. But if you're on the oily side, prone to break outs, both cystic and other, and in need of more regular exfoliation that's not going to burn or ravage your skin - than this might be the answer. It has been for me! I had some serious stress related pimples all over my face, whiteheads, cysts, just a freakin' messssss..... started using this diluted with filtered water, made kind of a runny paste, scrubbed gently at night in the shower for about a week - my face looks like porcelain, now. It can be drying, even for me -but i follow up with a decaf green tea toner, DMAE moisturizer with added Squalene oil and i'm good to go. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS, so far. I've been using every day for almost 2 weeks - little to no zits have appeared. Not recommended for sensitive skin or every day use, though.
