Banish dullness and reveal a smoother, more radiant complexion with Mario Badescu's refreshing, deep-cleansing Botanical Exfoliating Scrub. Say goodbye to buildup.

2-3 times a week, massage gently on wet skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. If product gets into eyes, do not rub. Rinse well with water.

                I normally don't spend much on things like this, but this was worth every penny. I have such dry skin and I have a problem with my makeup looking flakey because of it, and this stuff helps take that dead skin right off without irritating it. Loooove!!! :)

                  It says to only use about 3x's/week but I have been using it 4-5's/wk. Seems to help make-up go on better and remove dead skin.

                    More than I would usually pay for an exfoliater, but it's definitely worth it. It has a great smell and isn't too harsh on my skin. I had been having trouble with patches of dry skin on my face, especially my cheeks and forehead. An Ulta employee recommended this product. I was surprised, as I though I'd need a better moisturizer, not an exfoliater. This has gotten rid of my dry skin patches, and doesn't irritate or dry out my skin at all. I use it twice a week.

                        Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub will exfoliate and polish your skin to improve the overall texture.
                        You may also want to incorporate Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times a week into your skin care routine for an added boost of exfoliation to breakdown pore clogging buildup and help prevent future bumps.

                        Yes - it will help long term in helping to exfoliate away dead skin cells. For more immediate needs - Mario Badescu Rose Hips Nourishing Oil is a lightweight, quickly absorbed facial oil designed to reduce flakiness and surface dehydration.
