Most Helpful Positive Review my fav exfoliant for sensitive skin
i love this exfoliant. a bottle i purchased in mid march just lasted me til last month! (used 1 to 2 pumps every 2 or 3 days) if you are a skin picker, have a peeling sunburn, sensitive or sensitized skin, or have had a chemical peel (ask derm or esthetician first) this is amazing to use to get rid of the appearance of flaking, peeling and even some texture in my experience. it balls up all the dead skin with no trace of abrasion and then rinses off pretty easily. when i go to re apply in the same spot it doesnt roll up anymore, which is so cool. this helped reduce the appearance of my sebaceous filaments also.
im a licensed cosmetologist and when clients ask me about my routine i always include this product.
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't notice a difference...
I have always had oily, acne prone skin. A friend recommended this product. I used it several times and never noticed a difference. It did leave my skin feeling fresh and clean, but I feel that the balling up of the product is a trick to make you think it's working. I was told the chemicals exfoliate the dead skin cells off=the balling up of product as you rub it in. I tested this by applying it a few times on repeat and it always balled up but i'd still have dry patches and black heads that i feel should have been cleared up if the product did as described. Idk, maybe I used it wrong.

I absolutely love this product. I was in a local store and asked for a face brush. The associate educated me on this product and I decided to give it a try. My husband was incredibly impressed. Definitely worth a try and I will be buying this more.
The dupe is better
Emmy from Virginia
A friend recommended this for exfoliation, it did okay at first. After using it, the pills from exfoliating would get stuck in my face and would leave my skin dry and flaky. The ELF exfoliating is half the price and works way better IMO
Erica from Los Angeles, CA
I have been using this since 2017. I used to work in beauty and got this item sent to us for free, I have never looked back. It gently exfoliates without stripping skin or damaging the moisture barrier - a bottle lasts me about a whole year if I use it 1-2x/week. The best!
WOW! I'm Blown Awan
CINDYRVA from Richmond, VA
THIS STUFF WORKS! I have EXTREMELY peeling, dry skin. I'm 68, use Retin-A prescribed by my dermatologist and it takes a toll with the peeling and dry skin. Ulta recommended this and IT WORKS! IT WORKS LIKE A MIRACLE. The dead skin is gone, washed off and gone! Makeup went on smooth and I am sold on boscia and want to try other products.
THANK YOU BOSCIA FOR HELPING ME LOOK HUMAN AGAIN!
White Residue on Jaw Area
MJ from Minneapolis
I am relieved to know that so many people also have an issue with the exfoliated skin/product left behind on the skin. It only happens in areas where there is peach fuzz. It get stuck in the hairs. I choose not to microblade or wax, so I am sure this is the issue. Perhaps R&D could work to find a solution. Other than that it works to smooth and exfoliate well.
A must have product!!!!
Cosmetic junkie from Canton, Ohio
I love this product sooo much. Great before I shave. It is very safe and effective. You can see and feel the dead skin come off. I don't use water with this I just slather it on, massage it in circular motions and rinse. Great before you shave guys. It lifts everything and helps for a smoother shave.
THE GAME CHANGER!!!!
Amanda from Middletown CT
I cannot say enough good about this product, ladies too those having a tough time try to really ensure your face is all the way dry. 2 uses paired with the Apple cider vinegar resurfacing toner and my skin feels baby soft, I can see the difference in texture already. You can literally feel the dead skin rubbing off it's so satisfying!!! I'll never be without this and my cactus water gel!!! Another Boscia favorite.
Only exfoliator I can use
Lindsey from Honolulu, HI
I can't use scrubs. I can't use lactic acid or any other acid masks etc. But I can use this peel gel! I use it about once a week and it helps make my super sensitive skin smooth.
Sticks to any hair on face and gets clumpy
Awful Product from NC
This product is awful. I used it once and near my jawline/chin it was sticking to what little bit of peach fuzz I have and it really hurt to get it off. My face was bright red and irritated. It should not be sold. This product is awful. I have extremely sensitive skin and it felt like skin was burned. I will be taking it back to Ulta for my money back. Don't buy!!!! Don't buy!!!!!
I love this product
Shannon from Salt Lake City, UT
This product is one of my favorite parts of my skin care routine! Other people in their reviews complain about the little white balls that form on their face with use, however I love this part! It means to me that the product is doing its job and removing the dead skin off the surface of my face. I have tried other brands of exfoliating peels and even 'gentle' exfoliating peels, however they all burned or irritated my skin which ended up making my skin even more dry and dull. This product is gentle on my skin but efficient in making it bright and smooth. I would 100% recommend this product, especially if you have dry sensitive skin like me!
Mini from Dublin
I love this stuff been using it for years. I don't use it everyday it's maybe once or twice a week, helps with any dry patches. I get the clumps also but I just wash them off and use a toner. I hope they never stop making this.
It's not bad but not great
anonymous from Undisclosed
I like how it feels but tiny little pieces do get stuck on your face, like other reviewers have said. I gently pick them off with tweezers. I'm also not sure how great a job it does at exfoliating.
It works but it leaves a mess on my face
L from new jersey
I started using this product maybe 4 years ago. I loved it but for some reason I stopped using it and just started again maybe 3 months ago. Since then, every single time I use it it leaves little white clumps all over my face. I remember having that problem back then, but it was bearable and they easily came off. But now, it's for some reason so much worse. I don't know if its my skin or the product or what. I always make sure my skin is completely dry before use, but it still happens every single time. I try to use a wash cloth to help get the little white clumps off, but that doesn't work so I have to sit there and pick each one off my face. So now I'm left with irritated red skin from picking them off my face and i STILL have them all over my face. It sucks because it does leave my skin feeling so soft, but I'm disappointed and honestly don't think I'll ever be purchasing this product again.

when it works, it works - when it doesn't it's very painful
flower child from east coast
a friend gifted me this and at first i loved it. it does leave your skin extremely soft. however about every other time i use this product it gets stuck in clumps along my lower cheek/jawline and becomes impossible to remove. i am NOT a hairy person and i barely have any peach fuzz on my face so i am really not sure why this is happening. trying to pick off the clumps is extremely painful - similar to waxing but worse because the clumps are very small and there are a lot of them so i've literally spent all morning trying to pick them off one by one. as other people have had similar reactions i definitely think this is something boscia needs to address ASAP
The best exfoliator I've tried.
Bea from Inland Empire
I used this product after washing my face and dried it, the texture of it was very soft and smooth I was curious how it was going to exfoliate. Immediately the dead skin came off and I was in the shower thinking what is going to be left of my face lol it is a peel so I understood that my face could be a little dry afterwards and it did leave my jawline area a bit dry but that is where I'm breaking out the most during my pregnancy. I used the cactus water moisturizer because it's watery and when I woke up my skin was no longer dry, thankfully and the texture has improved so much. This has been the most effective exfoliator I've used to date. Boscia just kills it every time. I got this as a sample and after one use I'm going to purchase it, I'm going to experiment and use it daily to see if it'll help my acne and stop if it dries me out too much and then I will use it here and there. But I love this product. For each there own.
Sticks to baby hairs
LAT from Orlando,fl
A Ulta employee recommended this to me, I've had so many skin problems lately and she told me I needed to exfoliate and recommended this since I have sensitive skin. The first couple times I was blown away, and don't get me wrong - your face feels super refreshed after you use it. But I specifically asked if it would stick to my fine facial hair and she said no. Now it's starting to stick in my cheeks and along my jawline, and they're hard to get off. I had to literally shave the fine hair to get it all off which I try to avoid doing.
College Girl from Washington
I have very dry skin and this exfoliator is perfect for me! It literally peels off all the dead skin without irritating me. It's super gentle, doesn't hurt, and leaves my skin feeling smooth. HIGHLY recommend!
HOLY HOLY HECK!!
Jh from Ca
I wish I could give this a 10!! I used about a dime amount and massaged it into my face for about 30 seconds.. I washed it off with a wash cloth and OMG!! My face has never felt softer and so smooth!
anonymous from Undisclosed
If I could give it zero, I would. Completely ineffective. The only thing that changes texture was the product as I washed it down the drain.
This product is heavenly!
Lyn from Los Ángeles
I received this product as a gift this past Christmas. I was hesitating to use it since the direction state to use on dry skin. Well let me tell you it felt weird and unusual but I had to complete the process and let me tell you, it left my skin as soft as a babies butt, literally. I wish I would have discovered this product sooner.
Difficult to wipe off
Nery48 from NA
This gentle exfoliation gel seems to get some dead skin off but I really had to scrub my face to get the dead skin out of my little facial hairs on my cheeks. After scrubbing pretty rigorously, I decided to just leave the rest of the dead skin on in order to not irritate my skin further. I really wouldn't recommend this product. A good alternative I LOVE is called Aqua Reveal (comes in a blue bottle) but not found at Ulta
switched to Boscia!
liz from PA
I had so much flakey skin that was balling off. some may be product, but definitely skin because my face was soo smooth after!!! its undeniable that it works and my moisturizer soaked in beautifully afterwards and makeup applied smoothly. some good stuff!! reasonable price for how much is in bottle.( ive been using a different brand and was more expensive, very stinky. this is much better and effective!)
Dried up my skin
Heavensnectar from New York
It dried up my ex boyfriends skin as well. My skin is always dry now
Silverfox from Connecticut
This is the best exfoliating product for sensitive older skin. The skin looks brighter and smoother. It is effective and non irritating. Also, it can be used several times a week if needed.
