This is a fantastic face scrub it leaves my skin refreshed, smooth, bright and gets all rid of all dead skin. It smells lovely and is very exfoliating. I can't stand 'gentle' scrubs as I feel they do nothing for my skin. This grains are small but effective and not harsh at all. I will definitely repurchase this, especially when The Body Shop has a 50% off discount code.

the Vitamin C microdermabrasion scrub is the best scrub i've tried so far! it really does its job and has a lovely smell too. skin feels clear and brighten! i find it a little bit harder than other scrubs, but for me that's something i like. so overall will definitely buy again and again!

The Vitamin C Micro Refiner - or Microdermabrasion as it is now called, is definitely one of my favorite facial products from The Body Shop.

I have sensitive skin - I wouldn't say that it is super sensitive, but it does get red easily, especially after washing it and applying moisturiser. Lets just say that my face doesn't like to be touched too much!

On The Body Shop's website, it states that this product will:
- Leave skin feeling soft and smooth
- Give skin a brighter, more radiant look
- Improve skin texture and tone

I can say in all honesty, that this product does pretty much everything that it says it does for my skin.
My face is always left feeling incredibly soft and smooth, it looks lovely and radiant, and the texture is fantastic!

There is only one thing that I can't agree with, and that is the part about the improvement of the skin tone. I have uneven skin tone - I have hyperpigmentation under my eye area (above my cheeks), and this product doesn't help to fade it or make that area more even.

The hyperpigmentation has been there for about six years though, so I'm guessing that no product like this will work miracles! I think that side of things is a job for the pros!

I have also found that if I use the Microdermabrasion too much over the area with hyperpigmentation, that it becomes quite red - possibly the sensitive skin...

If you have sensitive skin, but would still like to use this product, I would suggest the best way I have found this to work is to:
- Completely clean your face first (take off all makeup and moisturiser)
- Leave the face wet
- Mix a pea size amount in your fingertips with water
- Glide your fingertips over your face from your nose out to your cheeks lightly

I only glide this product over my face very lightly for about 30 seconds at the very most before carefully washing off.
Hope this helps my sesitive skin buddies!!! xxx

A little harsh. Im all for removing dead skin and trying to banish those stubborn blackheads on my nose! But I felt like this was a little destructive on my skin. It feels like rubbing sandpaper against it. I noticed several broken capillaries on my cheeks, chin & nose after using, displaying that it was just too rough for my skin to take. Still love BodyShop products though!

Awesome micro exfoliator. Honestly, i don't know how anyone can go back to big, scratchy granual type exfoliatiors after using micro-dermabrasion type products. Let me first declare that i have always been completely mentally allergic to any cosmetic that sounds high-tech, anti-aging or affiliated with cosmetic surgery, does anyone else read the words "micro-dermabrasion" and shudder? I got on to this product by accident after a friend urged me to try Mary Kay's version of this (sorry i forgot the name) which is also great. I'm heading towards 30 and find that my skin is getting more and more touchy, i find if i have a pimple and squeeze it my face is much more prone to scarring than it ever was. If i use a harsh exfoliator i'm always afraid of disturbing my skin too much and exacerbating the problem. This product is fantastic, it gets rid of all the flakies but the micro-granules seem to softly "polish" my skin rather pull and scratch. If you haven't tried a product like this before this one is a good place to start and the orange fragrance is lovely especially in the morning. Also, don't be put off by the small tube as it is very concentrated, in fact i usually mix it with whatevever cleanser i'm using to speed things up. Will buy again and again and again!!

Got a generous sample of this when I lived in France. It's a really nice scrub that has fine particles - like Dr. Brandt's only a fraction of the cost and with less irritating ingred. Paula nixes this as it has citrus oils, but as they are listed after the preservatives, I feel we can safely assume (like Paula always says as well - no consistency with her) that the amounts are negligable. Works wonders for a mechanical scrub and I will continue to buy it.

I bought this a couple of weeks ago and was told by the SA what a great product it was, but if I had sensitive skin, then to maybe only use it once a week to once every two weeks (my skin is so sensitive that I cannot even use a facecloth without it leaving lines all over my face). I decided to try it anyways because of the reviews on here. So far, I have used it twice in the past 2 weeks (just once a week because I burned my face at the beach so I waited to use it the second time until my burn had disappeared) and I think I really do like this product. Although I was warned about the sensitivity of my skin and this product, I actually don't have a problem with this product. I'm not sure if it is the medication that I am on for my acne or a combo of that and this product, but I find that right after I am done my shower, I end up having a shine where I used this product. I usually dab some moisturizer on and am fine though :)
