Not bad, but contains iron oxide.
Not bad, but contains iron oxide.
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.

It is the first scrub that made my skin look healthy and shiny. It also reduced redness and small inflammations. I am definitely going to order it again.

Exfoliante muy versátil, ya que pones la cantidad que tu quieres, y por tanto, el gránulo que en ese momento necesites. Yo lo mezclo con algún aceite (almendras, macadamia........) y lo aplico en la cara. Deja la cara roja, como tintada y hay que aclarar bien.
My favorite facial polish!

Very gentle and natural facial scrub. And so easy to use! Just pour a small amount of this powder to your palm and mix it with your daily face cleanser. Oatmeal polishes face softly and lavender has antibacterial and renewable effect. Skin looks brightened and feels softer. Can be used daily, does not cause irritation.

Un exfoliante muy bueno para su precio, deja la piel muy limpia y suave. Según el tipo de piel puedes usar una y otra crema o limpiador de base, yo lo uso con una limpiadora profunda en crema (piel mixta) y considero que una vez por semana es suficiente. Imprescindible, y más por su buen precio.

The grainy form is soft enough on your facial skin but strong enough to peel off dead skins. Whenever i finish using it my face feels so smooth and looks brighter. If used regularly every otheer day, this should work wonders to your skin texture.

This is a great exfoliator. You choose how much powder to mix with your face wash and are in control of how gritty you want it. I was struggling to find an exfoliator that didn't have any nasty ingredients and I reckon I've found the winner.

I have used a multitude of exfoliants and I have to say this is one of my favorites. You only need a bit but I love how you can customize how much you need. Just add it to your cleanser in your palm and you're set. It's gritty enough without being too abrasive. I would definitely purchase again.
El mejor exfoliante

El grano de este exfoliante es de los mejores que he probado, otros exfoliantes en forma de pasta no hacen nada a mi piel, en cambio este tiene un grano que "rasca" y quita todas las impurezas, piel muerta, exfolia y elimina pequeños granitos ya secos, sin ninguna duda que lo volveré a comprar
