How to Use
Rated 4.46 out of 5 stars
I'm throwing out my mesh facial scrubbers, brushes and abrasive scrubs. This is the best product I've ever used for exfoliating. I've tried similar products with the fruit enzymes in them that were way more expensive and they didn't work as well as this and were difficult to use because they would ball up in my fine facial hair. This doesn't. Super pleasant to use, fast (doesn't need to sit on the skin for any length of time), shockingly effective, and unbelievably affordable. This is THE product I've been searching for my whole life. I've just purchased 2 more bottles.
Yes there are ingredients in this exfoliant that will definitely help remove dead skin from the face, but everyone thinking that the stuff rolling or pilling up as they massage it in is skin, is being midled to believe this is more effective than it really is. What you see balling up on the skin is actually the cellulose added to the exfoliant, it is not skin. Cellulose has to rubbed quite a bit with a good amount of friction before it will pill or ball up, but it will. I make my own products and everytime I have used cellulose, it balls up when I rub it in leading me to have to change to another "thickener". Cellulose can help give a little "texture" to products to help with sloughing off dead skin, but I assure you, what you see is almost entirely cellulose balling up, not dead skin. I think elf should be putting this myth to rest.

I've had so much trouble finding an exfoliator for my sensitive skin. I used to use the philosophy exfoliator but I think it was discontinued. This is an awesome version and half the price. Try this! Will be purchasing again

I recently discovered this product and I'm very happy with it's performance. It has no sting or burn when applied. It also doesn't have any gritty texture. It does an amazing job of removing dead skin cells and brightening your skin. It also leaves my skin texture smooth and soft. Its so gentle and non irritating, I can use it every other day with no problems.

Bought this few weeks ago. Absolutely amazing soft skin . Very easy to use
Liz from Alabama
The only reason why I'm giving it 4/5 and not 5/5 is because I myself have to use a lot of product at one time. But this stuff works. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate it at all. It gently exfoliates without any irritation. Definitely worth every penny!
Nic from NC
I use this weekly and love it.
Stephus from undisclosed
This is the first product like this I've tried, but I'm in love! It works instantly and provides results that last at least a couple days. It's amazing to see and feel all the stuff that's getting peeled, and the look of my skin afterwards was something I only imagined could happen to me.

My skin feels great. I use this 2-3 times a week after with the Holy Hydration line and my skin already looks brighter. This stuff is the truth.
Jlp95 from England
Had really bad flaky skin and started using this 2/3 times a week to remove any dead skin. Noticed a difference after first use and my skin is so soft now! Definitely recommend
JackieAB from Ashton under Lyne, Lancs.
Found this product on the internet as a replacement for a discontinued product it is perfect. Easy to use and having very sensitive skin I had no reaction. Leaves the skin soft and smooth and as a bonus my lines by my eyes appear finer an extra bonus I was not expecting. Highly recommended.

This is such a great chemical exfoliant! Using this left my skin so smooth and actually removed a lot of dead skin (it was kind of horrifying to see how much dead skin there was lol). If you've used the Wishful exfoliant from Huda Beauty, this would be very comparable but way better price. Elf did a great job on this product.

First time trying a peeling product as I have sensitive skin and I've always been a bit scared to try them. I was really surprised at how nice my skin felt after this, without any burning or redness.
Obviously, be aware that the balling isn't dead skin, but I still feel so smooth and clean afterwards. Would definitely recommend.
HannahP21 from Medford Lakes, NJ
I have pretty bad dry, flakey skin on the sides and bridge of my nose and on my forehead between my eyebrows. It is always there no matter how much I exfoliated or misguided and it was hella annoying. After the first time I used this it was immediatelyyy gone!!! Legit it was insane and I have sensitive skin too and it didn't irritate it!
Also, when I saw the dry skin peels that was coming up at first I thought maybe it was a trick and the cleanser was balling up on itself. So I cleaned my hand with it once and it obv peeled, but the second time I did it there was no peeling. So the peels you get are actually dead skin coming off

I don't think I've reviewed this product on here yet so I am now. My INSANELY sensitive, acne prone & INSANELY red complexion LOVES LOVES LOVES THIS STUFF!!! I recently turned 38 (on 11-23-21) & my skin has been CRAZY problematic since the start of teenage acne. Other than the not-so-pleasant smell...HOLY GRAIL!!!! I recently started incorporating a retinol product in my routine (facial cleanser/makeup remover) that also has quite a high percentage of vitamin C & after applying my moisturizer, there's still NO BURNING OR IRRITATION WHATSOEVER!!! I don't use it as often as it recommends, simply because I just flat out forget, but it's DEFINITELY in my list of "where have you been all my life" products. I wish I'd known about it while I was on my acne treatment routine. "I AM ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED" does NOT cut it!!!!

This is more of a peeling cream than an exfoliant. My skin did not feel any different after using it.
c2113 from chicago, il
Easy to use and makes my skin feel very soft and smooth after.
Sofie from Dove Creek San Antonio
This elf gentle peeling exfoliants made my skin even more sensitive. The irritation hurts so bad that I had to wash it off quickly and it still hurts. Caution: DO NOT buy this product!!!
Sapphire1991 from Torquay Devon
I purchased this a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it. It is perfect and gives my skin and brilliant cleanse. I am so glad I found this, it is amazing.
SM3586 from Maryland
Used this for the first time tonight and it made my skin so smooth afterwards!
brianikki from undisclosed
Amazing! I've been using a facial brush for years, but my skin has never felt as soft as it does after using this. I use it every 2 or 3 days, it only takes a little, and the dry top layer of skin comes right off. It doesn't sting or irritate, and my skin feels and looks so good.
Juliestar72 from New York
Works well and is very gentle on my skin, leaves face nice and soft
metallicmuse from Atlanta, GA
There is no better exfoliant out there… period!!!!
Krflaig from Muldrow ok
I am 50, and I cannot live without this stuff. I have very very sensitive skin ( and rocesa), and this doesn't bother it. I use it 2x week. I am always amazed at all the dead skin it takes off. My skin feels so clean and clear afterwards. Highly recommend. Great value $ also.
Jobee from Austin TX
I have very sensitive skin, and I was so afraid that I would have a bad reaction to a chemical exfoliant. Much to my surprise, nothing bad happened! I've used it twice now, a week apart, and no redness, no rashes, no nothing. It just makes the dead skin roll off, and rinses off. That's it! I'm so glad!
