Great basic scrub! This scrub will leave your skin wonderfully soft and clean, but it's not likely to make a visible difference to any scarring, discoloration, etc. I didn't expect it to make a difference in that anyway, I just bought it to use in my skin care regimen along with the TCA 15 and 24%, Glycolic acid 50%, Gly-Luronic acid serum, and my everyday clearasil face wash. I don't have acne, and haven't in years. However, I do have some ugly scars, mainly on my cheeks. So, hopefully using all of these things together will make some sort of a positive difference. I definitely recommend this scrub, even if for nothing more than a weekly exfoliant (I use it pretty much everyday, because it's pretty gentle.) And, as stated before, this is a WONDERFUL post-peel scrub to get all those extra flakies off!
I really liked this product a lot. The smell reminds me of sugar cookies and it seems to really get the job done without being overly abrasive. You can apply more product and get a deeper scrub if you apply more pressure. The packaging is good because it comes in a tub and you can get out every last bit. I had NO breakouts at all while using this product (that is really saying something btw) I would repurchase and probably will do so very soon!! Another good scrub that I could not find on this site to review was the Loreal Refinish for arms, chest and hands. I use this on my face. Found this stuff at Walmart for $15 and it works GREAT!!! It is pretty harsh, but for me that is a GOOD thing!! It has lightened some leftover acne marks and made my skin glow! Also great for post-peel.
This is super effective at smoothing out the skin and removing the flaky dry spots. It's not harsh at all, and my skin is not irritated after use. I purchased 2 samples of this, and it looks like each sample will last me about 10 applications because you really only need a very small amount.
I will definitely purchase the full size when I am finished with my samples.
I LOVE this exfoliant!!! They were not kidding when they put "micro" in the title... The scrubbing stuff is so small that I can't feel it on my hands, but it feels amazingly effective on your face. It feels like it makes it's way into every pore leaving your skin super soft & clean. I bought a sample which lasted me a couple of months because you need very little (1/2 pea for whole face and neck) and the customer service is great. Couldn't be happier with this product or this company :)
I LOVE this scrub. It's awesome on the 4th or 5th day after a peel when you've got some flakes that don't allow your makeup to go on smooth. It's pretty harsh, but I don't feel it's hurting my skin in any way. I would definitely recommend.
I just ordered 2 samples of this and will definitely be buying the full size when I run out. I'm very used to drugstore scrubs, but after using this one, I don't think I'll ever go back. I'm 29-forever with very acne-prone and dry winter skin right now. This scrub didn't irritate or dry me out crazy. It took care of the previous flakes I had from being dry and made my skin as smooth as glass. I really feel like the very fine and tiny particles in this scrub get into every pore. Leaves me with a very clean feeling minus any drawbacks.
I ordered a sample of this and now I'm going to order a full size. It makes my skin very soft without being too harsh. Seems to be the perfect exfoliating scrub.
great microbead exfoliator. not as rough as st. ives apricot scrub (once my hg). the particles are tiny and really work well at getting in the folds around my nose!!! i'm using a pea sized amount of this every 2 nights or so with great results. i can't say much about the "brightening" part; i'm using a lightening cream and retinol along with the 40% lactic peel, so i'm not sure which product is helping lighten the freckles.... but overall, my skin is smoother to the look and touch.
would def. buy again. a little is lasting a long time.
This is a white cream paste with tiny crystals and some large blue beads. Contains 20% of medical grade aluminum oxide crystals and the added skin brightners licorice and mulberry. I apply a dime-sized amount to my damp face and massage in a circular motion for a minute. My skin feels very smooth afterwards. I do not notice any difference from the skin brightners yet. I use this once a week, the day before I do a 40% lactic acid peel. This is very similar to Avons microdermabrasion peel, which is what I was using before I switched to this. 2oz jar sells for $22.50. Update: This is similar in results to Derma e's Microdermabrasion scrub but does not have the skin brighteners.
