I needed a scrub and this product promised to be gentle and moisturizing, so I figured I'd try it. I like the idea of a scrub also being moisturizing, since I don't want to over-dry my combination skin. I like that the granules are quite small (before purchasing this I tried the St. Ive's Apricot scrub...not for me at ALL), and it seemed surprisingly gentle and effective. I don't really know if it was "moisturizing" but my skin did feel very soft after use. I'm not crazy about the smell, though, it smelled pretty chemical-y for a natural product. It was an effective scrub, but it wasn't anything spectacular, so once I use this up I'll probably try something new.

Not liking this product. First time used, big blurp of scrub came out on my wascloth. Scrub is fine, scent is yucky. I'm going back to using my Aveeno scrub. Good idea to use Simple as a body exfoliater.

This was just released in the US so I was very excited to try it. I actually like it. It's not what I consider a "scrub", but I do like that it. I like the creaminess and the smell is nice. I can't exfoliate to much because my skin is dry and it turns really red after I scrub/exfoliate. I use this in the shower and it does a decent job. I did notice that my pores were smaller and my skin was softer. I'd suggest this for people with already decent skin.

this scrub is a regular one, nothing magic about it.
The reason I bought this is because of the rice granules. I believe the traditional home made skincare with rice, so I just buy this instead of preparing the rice facial myself. The texture, creamy and grainy with rice granule. I never notice any difference on my skin since using it. I have lots of acnes and acne scars but I don't think this scrub aggravate it. I thought it could help smoothing my skin and making it brighter but it doesn't do much. I have to be careful with this, not to scrub too long with this, 2-3 circular motion is enough, more than that, I realize my skin becomes a bit red.
In the end, I just realize this doesn't give the brightening effect I was hoping for, like I would get from homemade rice mask. So now, I just use this as body exfoliant.
There is no chemical exfoliants in this, just physical exfoliants which is the rice granules.

I really wanted to like this product but it was a major let down. I use most Simple products and most of them are really effective. This however wasn't good for my skin. The granuals are fine (which is great) but the liquid I think it makes my skin suffocate? Also since I'd been using it i found it clogged my pores, so I chucked it. Any recommendations for an everday scrub that doesn't clog pores? Thanks x

I have been using this for about a month and think its just ok. Like the othesr have said, not enough granules in this. It hasn't broke my skin out and my skin does feel clean after but I like scrubs to be quite rough and leave my skin feeling really soft which I just don't think this does. Would probably be ok for someone who already has smooth, clear skin. Also, very cheap!

Agreed with what the others said about the amount of grandules and it's effectiveness. I've started using this on my body instead to try to finish the bottle. It's not really suitable as a face scrub and does not exfoliate well.

I quite like the smell of this product, even though it's quite strong it's really nice. There aren't many grains in this although the ones you do get are quite big and rough, in a good way. It left my skin a lot smoother and brighter, but as far as clearing up spots and oil is concerned, it didn't make a big difference at all. I thought the packaging was ok, nothing special. This scrub is best for everyday users that have ok skin already. If you're looking for a scrub to completely change the texture of your skin, unfortunately, this isn't it.

An all-right scrub that doesn't really exfoliate well...the grinded rice granules are rough (in a good way) but there just isn't enough of them to do the job...which is why this scrub fails at it's job...if you're looking for a gentle everyday scrub that won't irritate slightly sensitive skin, this is good for you. But if you have dry flakes and really want decent exfoliation - skip this, there are hardly enough granules to do the job.

It's gentle enough to suit most skin types and the smell is nothing horribly overpowering. An overall ok generic scrub.
