Even though iron oxide is not a dangerous carcinogen, it's still a possible toxicant, allergen and irritant capable of causing breathing problems, exacerbating asthma, allergies and sinus infections in some people. All the other ingredients are great, though: kaolin clay and pumice gently exfoliate and detoxify the skin, draw out excess dirt and oil, remove impurities and dead skin cells, unclog and tighten pores, oatmeal flour moisturizes, nourishes, softens, soothes and heals the skin, restores its elasticity, calms itching, reduces redness and inflammation, lavender bud powder regulates sebum production, fights infection and inflammation, regenerates, firms and revitalizes the skin. Overall, it's a good product: it does make your skin softer and smoother, even out the skin tone and improve the complexion, but it would be much better without iron dioxide. Moreover, you can make a similar facial polish on your own and without iron dioxide: you just need lavender bud powder or essential oil, oatmeal flour, kaolin clay and pumice powder.

Me ha decepcionado bastante este producto. Es como si cogeramos barro en polvo y lo mezcláramos con alguna crema para exfoliar. Mi piel es gruesa y necesito el gránulo un poco más rugoso. Lo tengo abandonado. No me gusta y no repetiré.

First of all, you will make a loooot of mess while using this stuff. IT's super mild so maybe suitable for dry skin. The outcome is not amazing enough to make me put up with the mess it makes.
