Love this scrub!

You can really feel it exfoliating the skin, but it doesn't leave it sore or red.

It is pricey, but so much better than any other scrubs I've tried. And a little goes a long way!

I use this about twice a week instead of Special Cleansing Gel. It has mid-sized grains which makes me feel that it exfoliates adequately without scratching or irritating my skin. It makes my pores appear smaller and does not dry out my skin. Works great for removing any built up dirt and keeping my oiliness under control.

This product is very pricey, but I have rosacea and ultra reactive skin and this does not cause any redness on my face. It is a gentle scrub and can be used daily with a light hand. It does not seem to clog my pores either and the ingredients I think are semi-calming. Pricey though but worth it for my skin.

Overall, I'm particular about facial scrubs for exfoliation. I tried a travel size of this product and wasn't totally disappointed but not thrilled. It's too abrasive and I actually prefer Dermalogica's powder based rice scrub. I found that one did more for my skin than this skin prep scrub. The skin prep scrub is a good "fill in" product if u run out of your normal scrub. It can get you through until you buy more of what you really like. I highly recommend non-abrasive scrubs for facial exfoliation even if you have to make your own homemade one at home using cream powered goat's milk, its just safer bet overall for face.

I've only been using this for a few days but a noticed a difference in my skin especially my nose/blackheads.
It's helped a lot with exfoliation of my oily/combination skin.

I'm going to use it 2-3 times a week from now on but i've been using it daily for the first few days.

I used this once, and it completly ruined my skin. It has been 2 days since I used it and my face is till red-ish and has changed its texture somehow. I normally have smooth skin but it feels very uneven and dry and weird, an it itches a bit. I haven't used any other product for the first time since this happened, only the skin prep scrub so it has to be the product that did this. Hope it goes away and my skin goes back to normal again, soon... yikes

I tried this on my hands first... There is no way this abrasive scrub is going anywhere near my face! This has corn meal and cetyl alcohol which is not very good for skin either. Not to mention parabens up the ying yang. Abrasive scrubs are bad for the face because it cuts the surface of the skin and can cause infections. Instead it's recommended to opt for a scrub that has fine microbeads, which exfoliate the skin without cutting it.
I would definitely not recommend this scrub to anyone. The whole Dermalogica line is an epic fail, except for a few key products.

This is a pretty good scrub, as they go. I don't normally use scrubs since I prefer BHA/AHA products which I find more effective than abrasive scrubs. I received two samples of this so I used it twice. If you like using scrubs, this is not a bad choice. It's creamy, massages on nicely and the particles are quite fine so it does not feel like you're scratching the skin. (Hello Korres, I'm talking to you.....!) It rinses off pretty easily. So: a good scrub. It smells bad, but I'd still consider buying this if I wanted a scrub. Dermalogica is expensive though.

This product is about the only so far that has worked for me. I have very sensitive skin and every exfliolent before this, even some moisterizers, made me either break out, irritate the skin, or sting like hell, or even all the above.

This product is supposed to promote the natural ingrediants that are cntained with no harmful chemical ingrediants, not for the smell of it. I don't really care for the smell, as long as it worked. I have almost used up my first tube, and will buy another soon.

I recommend that you only scrub every two-three times a week. Anymore than that then you will get a rash, or your skin might even get damaged. Your skin needs to take a break from the scrub, so if you use any kind of exflioliater everyday then try only a couple times a week and see how that goes.

After using this for about a month, I found that my skin has greatly improved. Its not as dull, my skin is super smooth, even on days when I don't use the scrub. But I must warn you, please do not buy this product and expect a miracle.

I used this product with philospy's clean cleanser, and then the scrub. Afterwards I put on philospy's hope in a jar for moisterizer. If you use this skin regime everyday, in account with only using the scrub every two-three times a week, then you should see a difference from before.

No products can do miracle's on their own. It must be accompanied by other products to actually get a satisfied result. I say this, because I think many people think that if they buy one product that promises an after glow, or brightening effect, they think that all they need is that one product.

Most of the time, to get a brightening effect, you must use other products to help promote that idea.
