like I always do with MAC products, I start with a sample which they are always willing to give. I am in search of an amazing exfoliator and love Mac products so thought I would give this a try and so far seem to like it. like others have said, a little goes a long way so I am still using the sample. only about once a week and use a non exfoliating face wash every other day. I like that there are no plastic beads and the exfoliating beads within this product do disintegrate quite quickly but they are tough enough to do their job in the 30 seconds that they exist. the color is a bit intimidating but is what you would expect with a name like volcanic ash. I am so far happy with this product. my face is left very soft after every use!

Never had such an immideate reaction to a product until I tried this. if you have SENSITIVE skin, STAY AWAY. The second I washed this off my face was beat red and horribly irritated. I like the fragrance and packaging, however this product did not cooperate well with my skin type.

Best exfoliator I have ever had. All the 'gentle' exfoliators out there don't do much for me, I don't even feel they are working. I would not call this gentle, but it does what it should do. I get a great exfoliation when I use it, and it leaves my face totally clean and oil free (oil being my biggest problem). I love that it does not contain plastic beads, and the beads work great at scrubbing. I do not have the problem of the beads dissolving too quickly, as others have stated they have. I like the smell and the fact that that a little goes a long way. It works well enough I only have to use it once or twice a week, and because you only need a small amount, the tube lasts a long time. I did find it expensive, but I guess since it lasts me so long it evens out the price. It is a little messy and stings the eyes, but taking caution is a small price to pay for the good it does for my skin!

I loved this exfoliator! It's gentle and feels great on my skin as I'm exfoliating. It didn't give me any redness and my skin didn't feel dry (which sometimes happens with other exfoliators). My skin felt very refreshed and clean after use :)

Sooooooooo the hype gets me again to try something that I pretty much knew wast incompatible- I recently got an ample sample and tried this for a few days. This is why I love samples you dont have to waste time and money with something that doesnt work.

If you have sensitive acne prone skin, run for the hills, this is not for you. This irritated my skin- the fragrance, the ingredients the granules. I even went to try this in the shower and didnt feel it was an amazing product. Me and Volcanic Ash Exfoliator are not friends and never will be.

Not worth the money. Too many downfalls to justify spending the money on something a drugstore product could do. The black colour is messy, strong smell, stings eyes if it gets even close to them and the sugar beads disolve very quickly which equals an overall unsatisfying scrub. I am all for natural 'beads' instead of the plastic ones now clogging waterways but this is not worth the price.

Mine came in a tube, not in a tub like the picture above. I couldn't wait to try this stuff out because I love exfoliators. Since it is black, I decided to use it in the shower so it didn't make a mess all over my sink. The scrubbies are really fine and literally dissolved right after I put it on. The reason I rated it so low is because of the scent. My God. I couldn't stand to have it on my face for more than 10 seconds. It smells rancid to me. There was another MAC exfoliator called Microfine Refinisher, and was awesome but they don't make it anymore. I really loved that one. This one is crap.

I bought into the hype surrounding this product, and unfortunately it is a dud. The product works, but its not anything special. Any DIY sugar scrubs would work the same. The volcanic ash property doesn't seem to work or do anything at all. So I equate this to a very perfumed, overhyped sugar scrub. Save your money and make one in your kitchen.

Was very excited to try this product, because of all the small bumps that I had on my forehead. I really thought it would help, and I really wanted to like it. Sadly, it caused a breakout on my face every time that I used it. I would not recommend this product to anybody who has acne prone skin, seeing as it could make it worse. The only thing that I loved about this product was the color, and the smell. I used it in the morning before work and I would get whiffs of it during the day and it smelled sooooo yummy.
