Most Helpful Positive Review Will be purchasing
I could see results with this product after the first use. My skin instantly looked and felt so much smoother and softer. It looks as though my pores are reduced and my skin is glowing. Right after using it, my skin is a little red (which I feel is normal for an exfoliator) but once that wears off my skin has less red in it than it would be otherwise! So basically, I really feel like this product does everything it promises and I will definitely be looking into more from this brand!
Most Helpful Critical Review Never AGAIN; Beware Harsh Ingredients in this Product
I tried this because I wanted to lightly exfoliate my combination/oily skin once a week. Am I sorry that I tried this product. I read the label which states that this product is "for all skin types" and given the fact that the line is known for using natural ingredients and extracts, and had read the reviews, so I mistakenly believed this product is safe. Trust me, it is not! It's kind of greasy and takes a lot of rinsing to get this off your face. I splashed with cool water and gently used with only my fingertips in light circles on my entire face. Immediately, my face started burning, turning red in the areas where I'd applied the scrub. I freaked out and began splashing cool water and cold compresses only, but my face felt like it was scalded with angry red bumps everywhere. My skin was absolutely perfect before using this. All I was hoping for was to brighten in certain areas. There was nothing I could possibly have used to lessen the burn or to prepare me for this. Now, a full 4 days later my face has now started peeling, still feels hot and sensitive to even water, and I realize now that my face was burned by this product. I am afraid to put anything on since it's still healing. I did notice the red outline everywhere I had used this product. I have never written a review, but wanted other consumers to know that this product is not for everyone. Other reviewers had apparently had a bad experience. Before this, I'd only used the hydrating rose water, lavender water, cucumber water mists, but had not used any other Mario Badescu products and never will.

JCoats from NC
This scrub is amazing!! I could tell a difference after the first use...my skin was smoother and brighter...will definitely be a part of my skincare routine.
MarBarr from Texas
I can immediately tell the difference in my skin when I use this product! I love it so much. It leaves my skin so soft and incorporating it into my skin routine has made my skin feel and look so much better. I have combo skin that is acne prone.
Spanishcandy from Boise ID
I use this every-time im in the shower. My face has never looked and felt better. This has cleared up so much of my blemishes. Smells great and it's a great soft scrub, not rough on skin.
Gentle and Effective
TinkMom from Florida
I really love how gentle this is. Not only can you use it on your face, but it works great on the body too. I love using it during the summer.
B.A. from Ohio
I love this scrub. It's so gentle and effective. I can notice my acne scars fading, definitely recommend.
Good but expensive from NY
Good scrub, decided to splurge on this one. It does the job but $13 would be a more reasonable price. It doesn't transform your skin.
randi from louisiana
Great for exfoliating and clearing sensitive, acne prone skin
Overall amazing product!!
amberlightss from U.S.
I actually got this in a gift set for christmas, and i absolutely love it! It's such a gentle exfoliant that when you use it, it doesn't feel like your hurting your skin like many others do. It is not harsh at all and leaves my skin feeling amazing - especially in combination with the face wash gel (i don't remember the name, sorry!). But i have never had an exfoliating scrub like this that makes my feel unbelievably smooth after i use it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
skincareguru from la
i absolutely love this product it is so gentle yet it works WONDERS i used this once and immediately saw results it made my skin sooo soft and i love this!!
very strong scrubbies
Diana from Fruita, CO
you only need to use a very small amount and when you start scrubbing be careful! these scrubbies are strong! Just what I needed for exfoliant and has made my dark spots deminish already after only a few uses. High quality stuff.
Tace from Omaha
This is a very good, effective, yet gentle exfoliator. I use it a couple of times a week. It really helps smooth and soften. I use retinols, and this is gentle enough to remove the flakiness that retinols can cause. LOVE!
jaysugarfree from Los Angeles
I've been using this for a few weeks now and so far it feels very refreshing on my skin. Gentle enough to use everyday as well. I've been pairing this with the acne cleanser since I had acne-prone skin! I love that it's affordable as does the job.
my favorite product!!
cass from usa
This is by far my favorite exfoliating facial wash EVERRR. I use it every other day, and it is great for my skin, personally. My roommate even bought it after trying mine out. It's not as harsh as your typical exfoliating wash, but it feels like you're really getting in there and cleaning your skin. I won't be repurchasing because I love to try a lot of different products from this brand, but if I ever run out of options, this will be my go to!
Using this for 4 years
Tayler from NY
Ive been using this for probably over 4 years now and its never let me down. I used to have lots of texture and it got rid of that after a month or so of using 3 times a week. Its truly a great face scrub
I love it!
Kaitlin from Corpus Christi, TX
It works amazing! I could see the difference on the first use. My skin looked brighter and felt softer. It's a soft scrub not too rough and has a subtle smell. Definitely would buy again!
Gabby from NJ
I love Mario Badescu products. I started noticing my foundation looking weird on my face, I had very dry skin, I was told exfoliating would help. This stuff is amazing, after 1-2 uses I already felt my face feel so smooth and noticed my foundation going on a lot more smooth and no more dry spots on my face 😊 will be repurchasing
Love how smooth my face is !!!
Ruby from Houston Tx
Love how smooth it leaves my face every time yet it's gentle on it .
Ann from 07733
Got this as a free sample from Mario Badescu's website and I love it. It makes my skin feel so smooth. I just got another sample from Ulta and I'm thrilled. I would definitely buy a full size, but I'd wait for a sale.
So gentle and good! Definitely a holy grail
Ash from Near Lake Erie
Got this in a sample size and loved it so much when I tried it! You only have to use a pea size and you don't have to scrub your face harshly with this product. Just scrub gently and you can feel the beads basically doing all the work for you. My dry skin felt so soft and renewed. Would definitely buy the full size and mark this as a holy grail product
Sami from US
Okay by far the best exfoliating scrub I've used! A little goes a long way.
Sam from Killeen, TX
I love it! I love that it's not a really rough scrub across my face. It's still exfoliating but it's gentle.
Ang from Port Orange, FL
I use this product daily even though it recommends 2 to 3 times a week. It's not harsh and doesn't over dry my skin. The only downside is it's a little pricey, but worth it.
BEST SCRUB EVER!
Haley from Dallas, Texas
This is the best scrub I have ever had. It works so well and takes all the dead skin cells off your face. You only have to use a pea size amount and it goes a long way. After I use it my face feels soooooo soft! Definitely get this scrub, it is well worth the money!
