I enjoy using this face scrub because my skin feels vry smooth and clean after the use. The only drawback is that I'm scared it may be too harsh for my face to use everyday so I would still have to look for a product to use on other days. but overall, definitely would buy again. definitely helps w/ pores and acne/blackheads
Love it! I was first introduced to it at a salon where I was getting a facial. This is the first bottle I have purchased and I use it once a week on my face/neck only. This keeps the cost reasonable since I am not using it on my body, although I am sure it is great for that. It is gentle....does not irritate my sensitive neck....but leaves my skin silky smooth!
This is good stuff. It contains AHA, which helps aid in the exfoliation process. This leaves my skin bright and glowy. I use it every other morning or so in the shower. It does not leave my face red and irritated and does not cause breakouts. The bottle has lasted me quite a while...I would say 3-4 months so although it is expensive it does last.
Love this product. I have never used a salt scrub on my face that came close to this. Other scrubs in the past either made my skin burn and turn red, or did NOTHING and I couldn't even feel the grains of salt. This is a fantastic product that leaves your skin feeling so smooth after you use it. I will never buy another salt scrub but this one.
It leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and smooth. I find it to be a gentle scrub and leaves a glowy look afterwards.
However, it is expensive and doesn't do much for acne-prone skin.
This is the best peeling product I´ve come across so far...and I´ve tried a few... my derm recommended it and Im very happy with it. Face is left clean & soft but its still gentle and never causes any problems or redness.
This scrub is absolutely amazing. I've used plenty of high end facial scrubs, including Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion in a Jar. The beads in this are similar to the ones in Dr. Brandt's but I find this to be less harsh to the skin. It is the only exfoliant that hasn't left my face red afterwards. My skin was the softest its ever been, after just one use! The packaging is great- huge bottle that dispenses just enough each time so it's not at all wasteful. I love this, best scrub I've ever used.
This is my HG exfoliator! I love this stuff. It comes in a huge 8+ oz. bottle that will last forever. I mix a tiny squirt of this with my MD Formulations Facial Cleanser every morning (or every other morning) depending on how flaky my retin-a skin feels in the AM. I GENTLY massage this into my skin while it is dry, jump in the shower, add a little water, massage some more and then rinse. Smooooth skin and flake free. If you massage gently there should be no irritation. The beads are small and smooth (polyethelene) so they don't rip and tear the skin. The added glycolic acid works as a chemical exfoliant while the beads work as a mechanical exfoliant. Double Whammy! Did I say I love this stuff??
Update (Sept 2, 2010): This is still my absolute favorite manual exfoliant and I still have the same bottle! Did I say the bottle was HUGE. I have a million scrubs, but this is the one I always seem to reach for. My favorite way to use this is at the end of a shower when my skin is steamed and clean. I do blot my face with a towel first which is hard to do during a shower, but I find this works best if your face isn't dripping wet. I like the aspirin mask almost as much but it takes more work so out of the two this wins.
I really like this scrub. I use it on my face and body. MD makes a great line of skincare. I am hooked.
I just used this product for the first time during my weekly bath ritual with my hubbie. I did not use it on my face, just my body and really focusing on any area I was going to shave. Worked very nicely to exfoliate prior to shaving and I felt I did get a nice close shave afterwards. This huge bottle will last a long time and with the price, the price per use average is nominal. So a very affordable product for sure. I like the high amount of glycolic in it and I do like the density of the beads. I would for sure get this again. The only other scrub similar to this that I like as much is the DermaDoctor KP Duty scrub.
