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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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!
Hollie from Pa
This is not a real peeling exfoliant to start off, but the biggest issue with it is that it broke me out completely. I have little bumps all over my skin, and it looks so textured. Im only 29 and it made my skin look 10 years older. Do not buy!
Molly from St. Louis
I bought this based on reviews so hope this helps. This stuff is amazing. First time using it, I was hooked. It's absolutely disgusting yet satisfying to see all the dead skin roll off of you. My skin is buttery soft. Can't attest to how well it fades scars, but I'm excited to find out. Just happy to have skin this smooth now!
Elena C from Birmingham
Love this pealing exfoliant. My skin is nice and smoth after using it. Unfortunately first one that I ordered came with a broken pump, I tried to contact customer service but no reply from them and now I bought a new one and is more easy to use it with a pump. I do recommend it for a quickly exfoliating before make up.
Kava from Uk
Great product for really gentle exfoliation. Recommend
Angie100 from UK
I bought this very recently and have already used it a few times. I love it, it gives such a gentle exfoliation to the skin leaving it soft and fresh looking. Easy to use and results are good.
AiliseMairead from Leicester UK
Works well and really feels like you are removing dead skin. Face feels fresh after use. I use 1-2 times a week

Terrific product with great skin clearing capacity. I recommend this to friends and it's universally liked.
LadyBug231 from Canada
The amount of dead skin that comes off my face is gross but this product works really well. Definitely a lot better then a normal exfoliant scrub. Highly recommend!
Evee1 from undisclosed
I'm in love. I never leave product reviews, but for this, I had to! I've never found a product that can fix my skin texture, but this one does. My skin looks smoother than I thought possible after using this - like glass.
Kris from NYC
This works effectively to remove visible (and invisible) dry patches. It makes your skin soooo smooth. I'm dealing with dry, flaky skin on my neck and this summer heat rolls in and this helps keep the area free of scales and doesn't irritate my skin at all. It's also useful for morning exfoliating when you don't want use an acid before going into the sun. It's so perfect.
Nya from Allentown Pa
You can actually feel the dead skin peeling away
Morgan6 from Texas
This exfoliant delivers. I feel like a lizard person when I use it and watch my skin peel away
CarolineB87 from Richmond, VA
This is one of the best purchases I've ever made. I have oily and sensitive skin, which means that get a lot of product built up on my skin, even after using a cleanser. Exfoliators with grit in them don't do anything with my skin but make it irritated, usually.
But this product gently took *everything* off without irritation, and has left me with shockingly soft skin. I can actually FEEL AIR ON MY FACE! It's fantastic!
The funniest part? My husband loves it for himself!
Amazing product, will absolutely buy again.

I was skeptical of the pilling that occurred, was not convinced it was all dead skin being exfoliated. But then I had whiteheads on my chin sprouting like crazy and I used this. Alleluia! After just one use, the whiteheads were gone I couldn't believe it. So it does work! What a find! Thank you elf cosmetics!
Nikki from Idaho
I'm 36, I get hormonal breakouts, and normally have combination skin. I have to be really careful when exfoliating because most of them are too abrasive and cause me to dry out. This is creamy and it balls up your dry skin. I've never used string like it. I cleanse first, and then exfoliate, usually twice a week. I've been using it for a
Month now, and I've had no reactions or over drying. I highly recommend!
Mindful in the Redwoods from Watsonville
I was skeptical that this would be gentle but it is. I like the smell and the exfoliation that is gentle enough to use multiple times a week. It's a go to regular product for me.
