This is my HG exfoliator. It is just so creamy, non-drying and does its job extremely well. I generally like Elemis skincare products, as it doesn't contain any nasties, not tested on animals and is quite effective. Pretty pricey, but there are tons of places on the web where you can get it on sale or use a coupon etc.

This is the best exfoliator I have tried.
The end result of Elemis Skin Buff is impressive: Really smooth, baby soft skin. I have found it faster to get ready since using this product because my tinted moisturiser is easier to blend after using this.
For reference the other exfoliators I have tried: Clarins (ok but not as good as Elemis), Clinique 7 Day Scrub (I didn't get on with this, Dermalogica Microfoliant (likewise), Caudalie (ok, not amazing).

This is the best face polish I have ever used. At first I tried generous sample and now I cannot imagine my skincare without it. It is so gentle to my sensitive skin. After using skin is very smooth. I also like its smell. I would say that LaTherapie face polish is very very similar to this one, just more expensive. I like both, but prefer skin buff.

Like many others, I am a product junkie. This is the ONLY product that I have consistently repurchased time and time again. Generally I jump from product to product but I would never try to find another product to replace this one.
My skin feels like silk every single time I use it. I can see how someone could get carried away buffing their skin away. I try to use use twice a week only.

This is without a doubt the best exfoliator I have ever used. I first received this in a 20ml size which came in the Elemis Dream Traveller set I treated myself to before Christmas which contained many other products I wanted to try. When i first squeezed it out of the tube I thought it wasn't going to be up to much, as I couldnt see any grains, however, the result was fantastic. The cream contains micro particles which honestly leaves my face feeling as smooth as glass. I had a few minute bumps around my mouth that I could never really get rid of but this has done the trick. It removes all impurities and dead skin and makes putting on makeup a dream. I read somewhere that this feels like liquid sandpaper, which might sound off-putting but its true. Sensitive souls may want to go easy though. I recently purchased a full size tube for £24 which is a little steep but I think it's worth it as I have used so many that were not worthy and ended up in the bin or passed on to someone else.
I normally use Decleor which I'm very happy with but many therapists recommend that you change your skincare every few months and do a 3 or 4 month course of one brand to get maximum results. So I'm on Elemis at the minute and will change back to Decleor again in a few months time.

Whoa, despite expectations exceeded, I'm not sure that me liketh - this works but to what detriment?
Skin Buff, a spa favourite, is true to namesake and ought be dispensed with a disclaimer: "Avoid facial use". Even the meanest measure of the runny, opaque liquid is crammed with the finest of abrasive particles, so stay well away sensitive beauties with a tendency to pinkness. Promising a facial sand-blasting experience, it's easy to use - and abuse. Granted, the result matches the promise - skin to rival silk, but do be gentle I urge, or better still, save it for the spa professionals or dare you buff away too many top layers of skin, your battle-armour against everyday stress.
Suffice to say, my sample was demoted to a body scrub, and 'tis genius for the driest areas of the body. Sound botanical ingredients - beeswax, shea, chamomile, hops, meadow-sweet and something mystifying called phytoplankton - cannot exonerate this overpriced tube (£21). Give yourself over to fruity Enzyme Peel, an Elemis winner for many, that needn't come with a caution. Safe, just as effective, but skin-kind. A starry product.

I love the feel of this product as you are using it. It also smells absolutely divine. I find that my combination skin feels absolutely fantastic, clean and refreshed after use. You also need only a tiny pea sized amount for the whole face so the tube should last ages. Would definitely not hesitate to repurchase.

Wow! This product is brilliant. Does exactly what it says it will do. I have tried dozens of facial scrubs over the years and this is the first one I have found that actually works. I have combination/oily skin and because of some open pores around my nose I am prone to blackheads in this area. This scrub has realy begun to clear up this problem after just two uses. My skin is super smooth after use and my make up now goes on perfectly as I have no flaky patches or bumps under the skin. Another plus is that a tiny bit goes a long way, so although it is more expensive than some of the high street products out there, it is going to last me 3 times as long because I won't have to use tons of it to feel like it's doing something.
I've been using this along with the Lime Blossom cleanser and lavender toner and I am very very impressed with the results. I'd give this 6 stars if I could.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! Find it hard not to use every day....very fine scrub like MAC but better, rinses off better. Price is high £21.00 but worth every penny in my opinion. I have combination skin but mostly oily and this has helped so much...my skin is so clear now pores smaller and I would not be without this product.BUY IT!

This is the 'quality fantastic much better' version of mac's microfine refinisher which i didnt really like. I have combo skin, and some redness. I have a horrible nose- i have these what look like white heads at the sides and all over the top and the skin always feels ''bumpy'' and horrid...im forever looking for new scrubs to get rid of the dirt or god knows what is on my nose. This is perfect. It has lots of tiny grains, i hate those ''gentle'' exfoliaters that only have a few grains and the rest of the product is liquid, they dont shift anything of my nose. This is similar to mac's- the grains are packed together like mac's but they are much more fine, and gentler...and i swear i used this scrub last night and the skin on my nose is pretty much perfect- no whitehead things, no crap there, just smooth skin and of course my foundation looks even and normal now and smooths on very very easily. Im so glad I got this scrub, i also have samples of the papaya one which ill also try...however i do have to note my skin was quite red after using this...if u have redness prone skin like me i wouldnt advise using this in the morning, night is better as the redness can dye down then...UPDATE: This is the best face scrub EVER. I tried so many from drugstore ones to HE and this is just great. I actually have been using it 3 times a week, now i after a few weeks i changed to twice a week. I have been using it in the morning, usually just around my nose area and then once a week ill do my whole face or once every 2 weeks as i have no major problems there. I find any redness does disappear very quickly and my skin is so so smooth. UPDATE 2: Ive just repurchased for the 5th time this product!!!
