Most Helpful Positive Review Best microfoliant on the market!
This is the best microfoliant I have ever found. I typically buy bargain brands, but this product is well worth the price. A laser hair removal clinic recommended this product (they also do facials and permanent make-up), as it used to not be sold in stores. I tried it from the office and was blown away! Once I discovered Ulta carried this line of products, I was hooked for life. I have really dry skin and have tried every cleanser and lotion possible. This fine powder helps remove dry, dead skin cells on your face without being harsh (like St. Ives) that would normally just damage pores and enable more dirt and grime to get in your skin...YUCK! The product smells a little like baby formula, but I do not care because it leaves your skin baby smooth! I wash my face with this product several times a week and the bottle typically lasts about 2-3 months. I would recommend pairing this cleanser with philosphy's "hope in a jar" or a less-expensive alternative No.7 moisturizing lotion. My skin has never been so smooth and I constantly get compliments on my now smooth, radiant complexion. You MUST try this product!!
Most Helpful Critical Review It's good but not great
I bought this product because I wanted something more gentle to exfoliate my face with. I have combination skin and it does tend to get really dry even after I cleanse with gentle face cleansers.
I first started to use this product twice or three times a week at the most and I did not notice a difference at all. Needless to say I was disappointed because so many people gave this exfoliant raving reviews. I decided to use it everyday to see if I would see a difference in my skin. I dampen my face, pour a half teaspoon on a little silicone scrublet face pad and start exfoliating. Half a teaspoon of product does go a long way and I feel like the exfoliant works better using the silicone facial pad than just your hands.
After using it everyday, I can honestly say my skin does look brighter. It is gentle enough to use everyday but it can dry out your skin a bit. I like the product but I can't say that it's a miracle product or a life changing product. You will see results but perhaps not as drastic as you might think because of the raving reviews you read. I do plan on purchasing this product again for its gentleness most of all.

MY FACIAL SKIN's BFF
Pepper from Hawaii
I don't use whitening product anymore so my skin is more natural looking,but with the help of this product, it emphasize the more natural brighter complexion & leaves my skin soft & feeling calm after washing my face. Indeed a product that must be included on my skin ritual every night.
Got a sample, buying the full thing now!
Kelsey from Michigan
It has no fragrances, so the smell is a little funky but good for sensitive skin. Smells like clay. Exfoliates really well and makes my skin super soft!
Was a bit skeptical but it really works!!
Chris from Totowa, NJ
For my oily, dry, sensitive skin I use it every other day with a cleanser. It leaves my skin so soft!
Very good product!

This product works as described would be nice if it wasn't so pricey.

Worth the extra $. A little goes a long way!
Saweetie Gal from Ohio
Unfortunately I'm one of the few that hates Thai product. My skin has come a long way and has been looking great lately. I started to incorporate this in because I felt it would help with my hyperpigmentation and it broke me out. Around my checks and jawline just like some other people said on here. And my skin has this nasty looking inflamed texture to it. I'm so upset because I'm sure this is going to set me back in clearing my skin.
Best product ever

I'm kind of speechless when it comes to this product. But it and you'll understand why
This product!! OMGGG!!
Jess from Rialto,CA
This product is like the best investment you can ever have. It made my skin so soft. It's super gentle on the skin. I have been using st. Ives exfoliant scrub since I was like 13/14 and I am now 29 the beads are super rough and felt too rough on the skin, but no other exfoliant could get me to switch, until I met dermalogica. I have always heard good things about this product but thought it was way too expensive. Then I received it in a sample size as a birthday gift from ulta and since then I was sold. I will never ever in my life switch back to any other exfoliant. The powder exfoliates and dissolves as you go. Does not feel like sand at all. 💜💜 I am obsessed!
Sunshine from Nevada
I got a sample of this and ended up loving it! I ended up buying the full size when my sample ran out. It is a little pricy, but I think it is worth it. It leaves my skin smooth, fresh and has not caused any breakouts.
Tried a sample and bought the bigger bottle!
Gabby the photographer from Ohio
I use the product once every morning. I've noticed an evening/brighting to my skin and I feel like my rosacea is less red. Love it!
A rare change to my cleansing routine.
MIDot from Michigan
This has been a surprise. It thoroughly prepared the skin to accept my skin care products. It's slightly grainy but does not further strip my dry complexion. It has proven to be gentle but delivers noticeable results. My skin is smoother and age spots are far less noticeable. I got this as a sample on my birthday and I was back to buy the full size before I ran out.
Rachel from Michigan
Received this as my birthday month gift. Plan to purchase full size after the sample size is gone. My skin is so smooth and clear after one use. I had been researching serums to get rid of dark spots, acne scarring etc and I can tell this is all I need.
awesome face wash
Jammie from Philadelphia
I received this as a free sample. the best wash I've ever used! my pore are extremely noticeable and only used this product once so far and can honestly tell a huge difference already! will definitely be buying
Amazing Product - Love the Smell
Phylicia from Passaic, NJ
I love this product. Been using this for a long time. It gently buffs and polishes my skin and leaves me with a beautiful Glow!!! Doesn't dry out my skin. (I have normal to dry skin btw) and it polishes my skin to perfection. The smell? It smells like oatmeal grains. It smells so good to me. Love it!
WORTH EVERY PENNY
Emily from Delaware
This is the best exfoliant I have ever used. It's gentle and my skin afterwards feels amazing. A little goes a long way and it's worth every penny. You could even try the travel size and that will last awhile too.
Potential To Be Great For Everyone
MStr7 from Madison, WI
This was the birthday gift for February and I had been wanting to try it someday anyways. This reminds me a lot of the DHC Face Wash Powder. It makes my face feel SUPER soft after I use it and it really does help to brighten and clarify. I don't use it everyday though. I use it about every two-three days. I think if it is used every day on skin that doesn't have a lot of issues at first (if you're not having a breakout, if you don't have oily skin) or if you have dry and sensitive skin, I think it could really hurt. Everyday exfoliation seems silly from what I have been told about skincare and the skin cycle. Always listen to your body.
This product is so good...
Suzzypunky from NC
I had to write about it. I dealt with a lot of facial hair and I would tweeze and pick on my face, leaving it bumpy, red and rough. I also deal with hyperpigmentation all over my face and under my chin. The issues continued even after I stopped picking my face and started laser hair removal. But my god after using this exfoliator a few times, it's like my skin changed completely! It's silky smooth and the redness is gone! I had always been embarrassed with the texture of my skin, to the point that I didn't like anyone touching me, but those insecurities are GONE. I can't stopped touching face! I have seen my hyperpigmentation lighten up, but that was after I used the product for 3 weeks and I have kept up with my weekly skin routine with other products and the fact that I've stopped picking at my skin, so I'm not sure how effective it's on discoloration. But I would recommend anyone who deals with skin issues they have because of facial hair removal, it's a lifesaver.
Gretchen from Snellville, GA
I got this as my birthday gift this month because I've been in need of a good exfoliant, and I've definitely found it. Even after just the first use there was a complete difference in my skin texture. My forehead and nose have been on the rough side for a few years now, and this product makes them feel so soft and smooth. A little product goes a long way, I'd say half a dime size. If you do accidentally pour more than you meant to like I did the second time, use the excess on your chest and neck. It works on the body too! There's a very subtle scent once it's turned into a paste, but the best way I can describe it is neutral. Not good or bad. There hasn't been any irritation or any kind of negative reaction when used in combination with my current skin care routine. The price tag is daunting, but with results like mine, it's worth every penny; at least to me. Will definitely purchase once the gift size has run out.
LeahH from Olympia, WA
I got this in the travel size for free for my birthday gift and they lady behind the counter told me she swears by it (I've heard that one before though lol). I use it and my skin is super soft! I have sensitive skin so I was a little worried about it but I had NO breakouts or rashes or anything from it! It left my pores looking amazing and my face has never been less oily before in my life. I added a little bit of moisturizer ( I'm obsessed with moisturizer lol) and my skin was glowing all day and my make up went on flawlessly. I've continued to do my routine with this included and didn't have any breakouts for my period (which I normally break out). I would 10/10 recommend to anyone! I totally understand it's a little on the expensive side but it's totally worth it.
Worked from the very first use
Joanna from Cleveland, OH
I received the trial size of this product as my birthday gift this month. I was very impressed and will be purchasing regularly now. I usually use Clinique products, but this was incredible so I'll definitely be holding on to this one. I have combination skin and it works well on my oily areas without over-drying the rest. I must admit that I am a little disappointed that it costs so much.
My routine is as follows:
1) I start in the shower. I wash my hair and body first to give the hot water time to steam open my pores. Then I wet my face and neck and use facial soap to cleanse.
2) After rinsing the soap, I apply this product per instructions. A little goes a LONG way with this. I gently massage it onto my face and neck for about 30-45 seconds. As I do so, I can already feel my skin getting smoother and softer. I've never had a product that makes such a drastic difference, especially on the very first use.
3) Immediately after rinsing, I go ahead and get out of the shower, and dry off all of my body except my face and neck. I apply toner to my face and neck, then moisturize with Clinique products as well.
The end result is softer, smoother, younger-looking and younger-feeling skin. I can't help but keep touching my face to feel how smooth it is. It feels silky soft. My husband noticed the difference after the first use and he LOVES it. I've now used it 3 times and even the most stubborn blackheads and bumps that I get on my chin are gone. Can't see them or feel them at all. I will absolutely recommend this product to others.
Amazing at 1st try!
Kmh from Washington state
I just bought the small bottle of this and tried it and wow, my face feels very smooth,soft, and not dried out. I have dry skin with redness and just using this once was amazing. I can only imagine after a few weeks of use how my face will look and feel. Trying to take care of my skin after buying a really nice Anastasia foundation but after application, my face still had flaky dry spots amd I was advised to use an exfolient to help that. Looking forward to those results after more use but right after first use, I'm impressed and feel like the cost is worth it.
Best Exfoliant Ever!
LexieV from SC
I am 41 and have used tons of products, other than going to your dermatologist and having microdermabrasion, this is the best exfoliant I have ever used. It helps to get rid of that dull skin and improves texture. Don't forget to moisturize afterwards!
