Zingy! Wow, I love OS not only as as a facial scrub but a body scrub, too (I buy a big pot). Go easy when you apply to the face, those bigger sea salt chunks ARE quite exfoliating, just a gentle circular motion will suffice. Leave skin smooth, clear, zingy and soft. Not bad in my book! Also tastes nice should some fall on your lips(!)

It's alright. I don't think it made my skin very soft or anything like that. If I left it on to long it would sting. Also even in the shower there would be parts I would miss washing off and would have to spend time afterwords getting it off. This seemed average, it did what a scrub should do.

Totally love this scrub. I was having trouble with patches of dry skin thanks to the cold winter, and nothing helped...until i got my hands on this scrub. It completely removed the nasty flaky skin and left my skin soft and smooth. This stuff smells really great too and doesn't break me out. I think this scrub might be too harsh for those with sensitive skin, but it works great on my combo skin. Watch out for the chunky salt pieces though, i stupidly got a chunk in my eye which as you can imagine was not so great. The packaging is convinient although the lid doesn't really fit properly. Other than that, this stuff is great, and i'll be buying another tub when it runs out. I got the smallest tub which was 5.95 i think, definately worth the price. :)

I have a love- hate relationship with Ocean Salt. My skin is very unpredictable, so there are times when ANY cleanser just breaks me out. Ocean Salt tends to do this every once in a while and I don't know why, since I only use it once every 7 days. Most of the time however, it leaves my skin thoroughly cleansed, radiant and soft. It also smells great and is fun to use.

This is a fabulous product. The only thing is that I can only use this during certain time (like when my skin is oily). It's always refreshing and just feels "fresh". I will buy this again, but it is expensive so it's best used sparingly.

Indeed a harsh scrub, but smells nice and exfoliates skin well. Just be careful and scrub gently! I'd rather use a different scrub therefore, I won't repurchase, but it was ok overall. I didn't like the big salt particles at all though and HORRIBLE packaging...the lid didn't even go on right...and for $13 you can get a much better product with better packaging :)

I can see how this scrub can be a bit scary...and one must use caution while using it. It is not for the scruby scrubbers who like to rub and rub. The large particles of salt will rip off your face. I take a small amount and rub in in my hands to take the edge off the large bits. Then I massage gently into my skin...avoiding eyes of course. I rinse (you can taste the salt on your lips). I am smooth. Really smooth. I used to surf a lot and I believe the salt water kept my oily skin clear...this is as close as I get now. If you have any open scratches or if your skin is broken out and irritated, this isn't for you. But great for oily skin that gets congested or to PREVENT breakouts. I think 2x a week is plently.

This scrub was far too harsh for my skin, which can be sensitive. I'd never buy it for myself again, but my boyfriend started using this scrub and raves about it. (He uses it once a week to really exfoliate under his beard, and has relatively oily skin.) The lid to my container doesn't fit at all, and I transferred it to another jar in order to prevent the product from drying out.

Way too harsh!! I've srcubbed my face with cooking salt and pure sea salt before, but nothing is harsher than this coarse and drying scrub!! IMO you can get a glowing affect with any kind of salt, and it's just not worth it to risk the precious skin with this one. Plus, the packaging quality is really lame. I won't purchase again.

This stuff has been described very well by others so I won't go into it, but I won't be without it! The packagin is eh but I haven't really had any problems with it. A little goes a LONG way. I used it once or twice a week and it makes my skin so clean and smooth! Love it and will def. repurchase.
