The first scrub I LOVE.
The first scrub I LOVE.
I've been looking for a great facial scrub for a LONG time. I've tried everything from typical drugstore brands to all natural/organic brands... I never found something worth purchasing twice. Many were ineffective and could hardly be described as "scrubs," while others broke out my sensitive skin (exactly the opposite of the effect I'm looking for!). I've been using baking soda, which is inexpensive, but messy and inconvenient at times. After trying this Acure scrub, I can't believe how much I love it! First of all, it does the job (no sparse "microbeads" that don't actually exfoliate). My skin feels velvety smooth after and looks fantastic, and you really only have to use it three times a week as per the instructions. My skin tone is much more even, and I've only used it a few times. I notice my makeup looks much more flawless than it did before (but, hey, with how great my skin looks, I might be able to use less makeup now!). Plus, you only have to use a little bit of product, which makes the higher price tag worth it for these results.
the ingredients are good but a bit overdrying, good for oily or combination skin

I liked the ingredients and I read that the product is very safe for the skin. I liked the smell and the funny gren look of it. And the grains are very small like sand. But unfortunatley I have a feeling of dryness after using it though I scrub very gently. My skin is normal, not dry, so I guess this scrub will be perfect for those with oily skin types : )
Good value organic scrub, good but slightly coarse

Good organic ingredients and works well as a scrub, however, the grains are quite coarse and not recommended for sensitive skin or acne prone skin.
Very chlorella like!

I bought this facial scrub because it is free of harmful microbeads, tiny pieces of of plastic that are very often used in scrubs. This scrub does it job effectively, it works very well. My skin likes it and chlorella sure has many benefits for the skin. However, I think that it is very chlorella like. It is dark green and smells like chlorella. It is not a delight in itself but it is a good and beneficial product. If you found this review helpful, please click the YES button - thank you.

Buscaba un exfoliante natural, después de usar el de YSL. Sabía que no sería fácil encontrar algo me dejara esa sensación tan buena en la piel, pero quería algo natural. Después de leer los comentarios positivos tanto aquí como en las páginas de varias bloggers me decidí a comprarlo. Me gusta su textura y que no deja una sensación de tirantez en la piel. No siento la piel tan hidratada como con la otra pero supongo que es normal al no llevar parafinas, siliconas, etc. La recomiendo.
Immediate Difference After One Scrub
Posted by achronicvoice on Oct 03, 2015 | Verified Purchase
Noticed an immediate difference in terms of skin texture after using this just once! Face was nice and smooth after. It's a fairly rough scrub though, so I guess you'll only need to use it once in awhile when you need to clear your pores. One less star only for the packaging..it can be pretty difficult to squeeze the thick paste out of the tube.
A little goes a long way - great product!

Just a few drops is enough for wet face. I have a combination skin and my partner has a sensitive skin but this does not hurt neither of us. The smell is natural, maybe weird for someone who is not used to things like clay but nothing wrong with the product. Leaves skin fresh and clean! Definitely a "MUST HAVE" -product.

Not too harsh.

This scrub is good. It took me a while to get used to the smell but i keep reminding myself that it is organic and good for my skin. Not drying which is great and it does leave my skin feeling soft and very clean!

A thorough scrub

It's the grittiest scrub I've ever used, so a little - applied with a light touch - goes a long way. Immediately after use my face might have small red patches, but the effect is best seen the next day. It does indeed brighten!
