less is definitely more with this. don't scrub too hard. may sting sensitive skin. I rate it 3- it works so-so. No magnificent changes after a few uses. I MUCH prefer the aspirin mask to this. Probably won't repurchase but will continue to use to see if my skin continues to improve with it.

Who knew that an 85 cent product could keep your face smooth and evenly toned ? :) I sure didn't, but I'm glad I found out about this on MUA. Just started using this every other day this week, and people have already commented on how nice my skin looks! I mix it with Cetaphil and it doubles as a morning cleanser/scrub. Just DON'T scrub too hard or for too long, less is more! UPDATE: I'm now using AHA's instead of manual exfoliation. This was fine at first, but really didn't do much to take care of clogged pores. The aspirin mask is a superior homemade scrub to this!

This is a great over all product. You can use it to exfoliate and if you moisten a bit of it then place it on at zit just before you go to bed and leave it over night, it will drasticlly reduce the size and reddness of the pimple. The only down side to doing that is it will fall off during the night and get on your sheets, but it will usually stay in a clump together.

Another surprise from the MUA boards! I use this every other day mixed with Cetaphil as a gentle manual scrub. My skin glows and is so soft afterwards. I have had fewer breakouts and blackheads since using this and the MOM primer.

Ditto what everyone else has said. For mild skin exfoliation, mixed with Cetaphil, this absolutely can't be beat. For whiter teeth, add a dab to your toothpaste. All hail the yellow box. :)

Ditto on all the other positive reviews! Use it gently (as any physical exfoliator should be used), and it really is just great! I use it every other day in the morning before moisturizer, and then a BHA solution at night.

I must admit that I scoffed at this...until I tried it. I have used Baking soda on my teeth for years but my skin. I mixed it with my kids Cetaphil and I scrubbed very very gently and kept it moist, as my skin is older skin. I could tell the difference when I rinsed. I put on a simple moisturizer (L'Oreal) and I felt like a million bucks.

Wow - talk about glowing skin. After reading reviews I made the scrub with regular Cetaphil and my skin was glistening. This mixture is better than any scrub I have ever used before - and I've paid some big bucks for department store products - never again!! My HG scrub!! Thanks for the heads-up to all the reviewers!!

Many times a week I use this mixed with Cetaphil as a scrub. It takes off makeup well. Yes, I even use it around my eyes ( it's the last place I wash before rinsing, eyes closed of course). It can also be mixed with J&J's Baby Shampoo for the same effect. It is a wonderful gentle scrub and the price of baking soda is extremely low--you can stock up in a dollar store! Great. :-)

DEFINITELY NOT for people who are on acne medicstion like Tretinoin ( Retin-A or Renova),BHA, Benzoyl peroxide or antibiotic solution. Howvever, for people who on none of these acne medication, the baking scrub ( mix with cetaphil) might be one of best and milder scrub they can ever ask for.

Using this consistently actually gave me better results than dermabrasion (which i had 5 treatments of). I have oily, acneic skin. I mix this with the regular cetaphil. Afterwards, moisturize, because baking soda takes off the layer of keratin on your face which acts like your moisture barrier.

Ok, How many scrubs have you tried?, because I tried too many to remember. And then I discover baking soda, I can mix with anything I like and have the best scrub available. Will not go back to purchase anything else.

Hehe, I feel out of place reviewing this *but*... It's so fun to make little masks at home! A baking soda mask feels wonderful, and I wouldn't have ever found out about it if I hadn't have read its reviews a few months back! It leaves my face refreshed and soft - it's a very good natural exfoliant :) I love this, and the aspirin mask as well! :D

Finally! A HG face scrub...cheap, widely available,and easily mixed with any current face wash I am using. I will never ever ever ever buy another exfoliating scrub again. It would be a total waste of money, and I would be stoopid. Plus my skin would never talk to me again.I love this stuff.

My skin is not very sensitive, which may be why I find this so effective. It's a nice scrub, refreshing and great mixed with cleanser (not to mention, cheaper than dirt). My husband's using it now, too, which is pretty amazing.

I tried everything on my poor skin, including baking soda. The baking soda scrub was wonderful for the first few seconds, but then my face started burning. I would definately recomend this to people with non-reactive skin though.
edited to add- A few months ago I tried mixing a little of this with cetaphil cleanser, and it is still too harsh for my skin.

I tried this as a facial scrub on my combination skin and it dried me out the very first time I tried it, badly enough where some moisturizer on top couldn't fix the problem immediately. I did not enjoy using it and would recommend this only if you are very oily/ not sensitive.

This is THE BEST scrub I have ever use , I mix it with Cetaphil and scrub gently my face once or twice a week , I love it .
It is so gentle and effective in removing dead skin . I tried so many scrubs (St. Ives , Chanel , Shiseido , Neutrogena , Nivea , Aloette ) and they all hurt my skin and some of them are very expensive too .
I recommend this to everyone , is not expensive and does a very good job .

this stuff is awesome. I use it in w/cetaphil for an exfoliant and w/toothpaste for whiter teeth. Yes, it tastes hella awful but it works.

I've used this a few times in combination with toothpaste to brighten and whiten my teeth. My mom does this, too. It tastes like crap but I promise it makes your teeth look nicer!
