Most Helpful Positive Review Miracle worker for clogged pores
I used this scrub twice a week for about 8 months. When I started, my face was completely covered in tiny clogged pore bumps due to using facial oils and literally never exfoliating. This scrub is pretty intense so it did break me out for the first few weeks that I used it. After that, my skin got used to it but it did continue occasionally bringing developing pimples to the surface. Overall, after using up the entire jar, my clogged pores are completely gone and my skin is smoother than it has ever been. I used the scrub in the shower because I felt that soaking in hot water made the scrub more effective. I also recommend using a mask after washing off the scrub; I used either the Body Shop tea tree mask or Formula 10.0.6 deep down detox after this scrub for the softest skin ever.
Most Helpful Critical Review Use with caution
I've read for years about dangers of destroying the lipid barrier, and I think I finally found the product that does it. After this use, the skin is refined glowy, and pores look smaller, however I struggle with a lot of excess oil for about 6 days. This is a sure sign that the lipid barrier is broken. The exfoliators I like better are Ahava and the Olay one which comes in the light blue and white container, the one that's most expensive in the line, honestly don't know the name. I feel these give a great effect with far less large abrasive shard -like granules. The second time I used it I use a little witch hazel to calm the inflammation afterwards, and it seemed to be bette but sadly, as much as the immediate after effect looks good, I don't think it's good for my skin. I will use it as a body scrub until it's gone, but I will not repurchase.

Love this product. My face is very smooth after use.
I've bought this for years; my friends, too.

I'm 54 and I have use this scrub daily for several years. I love it for it's effectiveness and because it's safe for my skin/body. It has a fresh, clean, non-perfumey fragrance---perfect for first morning. I recall that Derma E used to manufacture their products in a environmentally friendly and sustainable location. I hope that's still the case.
This is still one of my top facial scrubs
Wendy from Undisclosed
I use this facial scrub once per week. It's very fine granules make for a smooth surface afterwards. The scent is a bit lemony mint. I purchased during a BOGO of buy 1 get second one half off. These two will last me a nice, long time. Happy about this order.
Best OTC exfoliant
Monaliza from TX
I am always on the lookout for a quality exfoliant that is as close to pharmaceutical grade as I can find. I cannot imagine I will be searching anymore. This has one of the most satisfying fragrance of freshly grated lemon zest as if I grated it myself. Leaves my face feeling so soft and refreshed.

I received this product as a sample in my Allure box. I was scraping the bottom of the container to make it last! Glad I purchased it. It is a very good exfoliating scrub that does not dry my skin out. It is moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling like glass. Highly recommend!
Cat from Olathe, KS
Works amazing!!! I use it twice a week as recommended! I've a noticed a huge difference in my skin.
BEST THING EVER
Samantha from San Diego
Guys seriously it's amazing! I was really looking into getting microdermabrasion done and before I could even set up an appointment Covid happened and I decided to try out a bunch of new products and I came across this. I'm telling y'all this stuff really helped my skin. I use to have a bunch of reds little acne scars around my mouth and chin area and now they're disappearing.
DEFINITELY A FAVORITE
Brittany from Undisclosed
Best microdermabrasion scrub on this planet and smells amazing.
Scrub is good, but not the lotion
Sash from ATLANTA
I mistakenly reviewed this thinking it was the face cream. This product works but don't use the face cream . That will break you out.
Broke me out SO badly still recovering
Sash from Atlanta
I'm sure this works for someone, but probably people not prone to acne. My skin did not react well to this and I'm still recovering from some of the deeper pimples that scarred. I would steer clear.
Kelli from PA
This is hands down one of the best exfoliators out there! It's so micro-fine that it doesn't feel like it's ripping your face apart, but despite how gentle it is it still WORKS! It leaves my skin feeling so smooth afterwards. My favorite part is the scent 😍 it legit smells like someone cut a fresh lemon right in the shower, it smells AMAZING!! Would totally recommend!
Carli from Undisclosed
I've only used this 3 times and have already noticed a difference!
New favorite scrub
Zaray from Undisclosed
I like the texture of this scrub. It's a very fine grit with a light scent. My skin always feels smooth and fresh afterwards.
Much better than Dermalogica!
LisaAnn from Whitewater, California
I have been an using Dermalogica daily exfoliator for a while now, but not anymore now that I've found Derma-e. You receive a lot more product for the price, and I feel this scrub/exfoliator works better. It's smoother, less abrasive on sensitive skin, and can be used more often, for that wonderful glow!
Go gentle, but it's great!
Elizabeth from Undisclosed
I love this product and will keep buying it. I personally have sensitive skin, so I can't apply too much pressure when I use it. I use it twice a week, and look forward to my "exfoliation days"
Rebecca from Undisclosed
About twice a week when I use microdermabrasion, my face is so smooth and clean. It's one important part of my new DermaE regimen.
Not for me
Aggiegirl from Houston
I tried this scrub to help with my skins dullness and uneven texture. It made my face very red and touchy afterwards. I followed the directions but this product is not for my very sensitive skin.
I swear by this scrub
Cat from Boston, MA
I have been using this scrub 3-5 times a week for over a year now. I also use the Derma-E glycolic acid cleanser daily which is great for removing makeup and just a general lathering face wash (I use the cleanser first, followed by the scrub, followed by the anti-aging moisturizer day cream). After years of frustrating experiments with other products and routines, I've found the right one. My milia and cystic acne has significantly improved and my face is a smooth texture instead of the bumpy oily mess it once was. My blackheads have shrunk significantly and my old acne scars from high school (15 years ago) have been slowly but steadily fading away. This is absolutely the best microdermabrasion product within this price range available, in my opinion. I spend under $30/month for happy healthy skin!
Great physical exfoliate

I enjoy using this, makes my face red from rubbing but feels so clean and smooth after.
Best scrub EVER
Julia from Undisclosed
I LOVE the scrub. It makes my skin feel SO smooth and I can see the improvement of my pores and skin texture. If you have sensitive skin I suggest being very careful and gentle while massaging it in. Use a good moisturizer after. This product will have a special place in my skin routine essentials. I will definitely buy it again!
I would definitely buy again
Julie from Undisclosed
I use 3 times a week in my morning routine . Love how It makes my face feel
I would buy this over and over
Elizabeth from Undisclosed
I used this product twice a week,more if needed. This produce has done wonders for my skin. The micro bread are very gently but get the job done. The citrus smell makes it enjoyable to use. My skin feels refreshed and clean after using.
