Exfoliating is a perfect pre-shave ritual. For a smooth razor glide after a face scrub, use Kiehl’s Close-Shavers Shaving Formula 31-O.

Birchbox Breakdown

Remember that part in “Vertigo” when Bono screams, “You give me something I can feeeeeel”!? The U2 frontman may not have been talking about this awesome exfoliator, but the sentiment is the same: You can really feel it working. Packed with skin-smoothing apricot scrub particles and an energizing boost of caffeine and menthol, this is your face’s answer to a triple espresso. Use it to soften up facial hair for a more comfortable shave, or just refresh your mug after a long night out.

How it Works

Scrub particles do away with dead skin cells and prevent ingrown hairs, while apricot kernel oil provides much-needed moisture. A high-powered blend of caffeine, menthol, and vitamin E gives skin a smoother, more even appearance.

How to Use

Splash face with warm water, then gently massage into skin with upward circular motions. Rinse well. Use up to three times per week.

Good

Feels good on the face in the shower. Cleansing and invigorating. Would definitely buy this product for occasional weekly use.

Hands Down, Best Scrub Around

Not much more to say, other than this stuff is awesome! Energizing is an understatement. Get it and you won't be disappointed.

Amazing

I've bought several tubes of this since I first got it in my box. It has just enough grit and is very refreshing.

Good and exfoliating but feels like sand paper

This product is very good at exfoliating, and does energize the skin, but using it is not very pleasant. Much rougher than most exfoliating products, feels like sand paper on the skin.

Use prior to shaving

I've been using this Kiehl's scrub for over a month now & it's great. I use it before shaving & it really softens the hair which gives a closer shave.

Excellent scrub

Many years ago, well over 15 years which dates me, there was this face scrub for guys that was great. Had just enough "grit" to exfoliate and to remove oil from complex skin. That was discontinued and I had never found a suitable replacement till I found Facial Fuel.

It shares many of the same great characteristics. Just enough "grit" to exfoliate and scrub away oil from one's skin. My pores were noticeably cleaner, and frankly you feel refreshed after using it.

I highly recommend this scrub!
