I have gotten it as a scrub, but feel like it is more of a cleanser with exfoliating properties.
I like the gel texture and the fact that it leaves the skin squeaky clean. Feels like it is quite dehydrating and rips the skin off of the oils so you would need to moisturize well afterwards. It would be perfect for combo to oily skin and in the summer.
Would not recommend using this as a daily cleanser since I think it is too harsh and drying for that, but using this two-three times a week instead of your regular cleanser would seem sensible. That would not cancel out using a proper scrub or exfoliator.
The packaging is great, I love squeeze tubes for scrubs and cleansers, it is convenient and hygienic. I guess I might repurchase, but I lean towards maybe on this one. It is on the pricier scale, but I would not think it's too expensive. It does a nice job, but I can not say I am impressed.

I know this is suppose to be an exfoliator only, but i kind of used it as a cleanser.
suprisingly when i use it as a cleanser all my pimples subside quite fast!
Although it does'nt really smooth my skin that much, or fade my scars but it does quite a good job as a cleanser.
i wear a lot of makeup and the weather here in Malaysia is really hot and humid, thus all the oil and dirt clogged into my pores.
I have really oily skin, pimples, acne scars, large pores and blackheads on my nose.
After a month of stopping from this, ( i grew bored and wanted to try something different) all my pimples came back!
So until i find my HG cleanser im surely gonna stick with this first.

This product is okay as a cleanser but I'm not sold on the supposed pore-clarifying effect. It certainly wasn't very noticeable on me. The exfoliating grains are not too irritating for my skin. I found the gel base of the product left some filmy, rather clingy residue which, if not rubbed away completely (and it took a fair bit of vigourous scrubbing, I tell you!), caused me to have irritated bumps the next day.

This product is amazing!! I'm not using any other product.. EVER! I'm going to keep coming back to this. I love this product so much. It deep cleanses blocked pores, exfoliates to remove dead at skin cells, excess oils, impurities and daily grime. Best exfoliator ever. My skin felt so soft and smooth when I was done. The only cons are that the bottle is kind of small and it is a little pricey. Its worth it though.

A soap-free facial scrub that effectively deep cleanses blocked pores and exfoliates to remove dead skin cells, excess oils, impurities and daily grime. This is what the body shop promises you when you buy this scrub, and I must say it is actually really nice!
The product has key ingredients jojoba oil, which absorbs oil and leaves your skin soft and smooth and wild-harvested seaweed, which is non-oily and very hydrating.
So I really like this product. The beads are small and not very harsh on the skin. You can even, if you really have a problem with large pores use this two days in a row to give them a good cleanse. Because the small beads don't irritate my skin it leaves a soft smooth surface.
If you have oily or combination skin this is a really good scrub for you!
I hope you liked this review!
More coming soon!

This is absolutely amazing!
It smells good, feels amazing when using. It really refreshes my skin and makes my skin super soft, gets rid of oiliness, blackheads and zits/pimples and acne in general.
I use this after my cleansing, then I use a toner.
I use the scrub Thursday & Sunday. Also on a Sunday I'll use a mask after the scrub (in the evening).
Definatly worth a try!

I prefer having separate cleansers and exfoliators, so I'm always on the look for a good exfoliator, since it seems like nowadays the only exfoliants are combined with cleansers.
This is a little on the pricey side (at least it is here in Norway), but it works very well. I normally have oily skin in my native Florida, but in Norway, I have combination/dry skin. This exfoliator does not overdry, nor does it leave my skin oily during the summer. The grains are medium to large, which is a negative in my book since I believe finer grains are better for your skin.
However, I have yet to find that holy grail of exfoliators that leaves the right moisture balance with the right size grains at the right price. In the meantime, this seems to be the best.

I was a little surprised to see some negative reviews of this but of course not everyone's skin is the same. I bought this to try about 6 months ago and am hooked - love it! My skin is combination with dryness in the winter and super oiliness in the humidity in summer if I don't use the right product, and my skin loves this scrub! It's just scrubby enough without being too abrasive (I tried TBS's Green Tea scrub and it was too much...) and my face has been very happy since I started using this (I use it every other day); pores have improved a bit, not as many breakouts. I am pretty cheap so I don't like the price but I will definitely pay it for this. I've been pretty happy so far with all the items in the Seaweed line I have tried.

Love it love it loooove itttt. The grains are small enough not to tear at your skin yet large enough to exfoliate your pores like it promises, leaves a clean tingly feeling, and foams like a cleanser on my skin. It controls my oily nose and forehead without drying out my moderately dry cheeks and chin. I also feel like it makes my skin glow and appear softer after I use it. The only face exfoliator I buy, and with the relatively small bottle lasting me for four-six months, I never mind repurchasing. Totally worth it.

N.B. I got a sample of this, not a full sized product.
This stuff is disgusting; smells horrible and actually caused my skin to react in a really noticeable way. I had red bumps all over my face after a SINGLE use. Will never touch again. Tossed the sample. Even if I hadn't reacted, though, it stinks. There are far better "soap free" options out there.

I've used the Tea Tree Oil line and decided to try a few of the Seaweed products, purchased this cleanser, the toner and the mask. Part of a buy 2 get one free sale.
It smells nice, but it really did nothing for my skin. I'm using it as body wash just to use it up ...
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Tan Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I just hit my twenties and I realised I must start doing something to my face. I have normal-combi skin, oily T-zone and normal skin on other areas. I have many clogged pores and whiteheads, but little blackheads.
This is the first exfoliator i've tried from the body shop, bought it at a sale at SGD16.90. I agree that it's great as a cleanser, my face feels really clean and smooth. It's gentle on blemishes as well. I thought that scrubs were harsh on pimples but this was fine on my pimples.
However, as an exfoliator, it doesnt really help coz the granules are too small. My pores are still there, esp the bigger ones on my forehead. It helped the pores above my cheeks a little. coz they're smaller.
It controls oil. My T zone is less shiny now (:
As a cleanser, I would give it 4 lippies. As an exfoliator, i think i would try st ives apricot scrub instead, cheaper and better coz of the bigger granules (friend recommended, though i havent tried it before)
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
As an exfoliator I would rate it a 1 or 2 but as a cleanser, I love this product. It keeps my combination skin from looking too shiny during the day, which is just what I wanted a cleanser to do. I just don't like how much it costs! I don't think that it's too harsh for my skin like some of the reviews say. But I do agree that this product doesn't have large enough granules for it to be a good exfoliator which was why I had purchased this product in the first place.
I answered yes when asked if I would purchase this product again, but I would purchase it to use as a cleanser rather than as an exfoilator.

This was the first exfoliator that I tried from The Body Shop, and although I like it, I prefer the one from the aloe line. My skin is fairly sensitive and the small beads in the aloe one agree with my skin more than the ground up shells in the seaweed one. That being said, it is a nice scrub if you like this type.

I don't like this product at all. I ended up returning it. it didn't do anything
for my skin, and even worse, it stings my face so much!
if you have sensitive skin like me, I definetely would not recommend it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Green
I haven't seen any real improvement in my skin since I started using this product. I find it's too harsh for my skin and leaves it a little tight. I'm not fond of the smell either. Really cheap though.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
I'd heard this seaweed range was good for oily/combination skin but this exfoliator hasn't done much for me. The smell of it is lovely but the granules are too small have much effect in scrubbing off dead skin cells. It doesn't make my face feel fresher or look brighter at all.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I really hated this product. As a scrub it doesn't work. It does not have enough granules to effectively exfoliate your skin I feel absolutely no effect after using it. As a cleanser it dried out my skin completely. Within using it one time I broke out. Without a doubt I'm returning to my old facial scrub (the dead sea salt scrub from the Best Bath Store).
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
It does nothing in oil control as it had publized. And worst my face do not feel scrubed or cleansed no matter how many time i use it.
Definitely not going to buy it again.
