Birchbox Breakdown

Dead skin cells don’t just clog pores, they also dull your complexion and give skin an older appearance. No thanks! We’re all about aging gracefully, but that doesn’t mean we can’t work to slow it down a bit. Freshen up your face with this all-natural smoothing scrub. The gentle formula sloughs away dead cells and deep cleans pores for a younger, more radiant glow.

Note: This product was formerly called “derma e® Refining Vitamin A and Glycolic Scrub.

How it Works

Glycolic acid, a form of alpha hydroxy acid naturally found in sugar cane, sloughs off dead skin cells which helps prevent clogged pores and lessens the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Apricot seed powder and papaya work together to deep clean pores, revealing a more radiant complexion.

How to Use

Depending on your skin’s sensitivity, use this scrub once to twice per week. Apply a dime size amount to damp skin, and gently massage in circular motions. Rinse off with warm water.

Radiant skin!
Purchased

derma e gently and effectively sloughs away dead skin cells, leaving my skin feeling smooth and looking rejuvenated. My skin can be on the sensitive side and this face wash is gentle enough to be used on a daily basis.

I'm a life user now!

I received this product as a gift with my last purchase and I love it! It is strong enough to leave your skin silky soft yet soft enough for frequent use. I have been using it every day and my skin has been feeling wonderful. However, I just noticed that it's meant to be used once or twice a week, so I will use it every other day from now on. But, so far my skin hasn't been feeling too over scrubbed, so this speaks on how gentle it is!

Love this

This stuff is great. It provides a good scrub, but it's not too rough. The formula is very rich and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and smooth.

Pretty good

I liked the creamy texture of this product and the smell was very pleasant too, not overbearing. I only wish there was more apricot seed and exfoliating agent in it. I felt like I had to use a lot to get a good scrub. A dime size didn't feel like it gave me enough of the scrubbing agent to really exfoliate.

Great Scrub!

I received this as a gift with purchase & I love it! I thought that it would dry my skin out because of the glycolic acid, but it is actually very moisturizing!!! Will def purchase again!

Surprised!

I was very pleasantly surprised and continue to be pleased with my sample of Derma e Exfoliant. It feels so good and leaves my skin feeling nourished and super clean, and feeling extra fresh. I will definitely order this product again!

love it

Leaves skin feeling clean and not overly dry. Scrub is not too harsh so it can be used everyday. This product is good for sensitive skin.

Not too harsh

I was concerned that the "scrub" would be too harsh, but the exfoliators are nice...you can tell they're doing their job of removing dead skin, but not tearing at your face like other products do. You do not need to use a huge amount to get nice coverage on your face and the price point is great for this product!

Not that exfoliating

This "scrub" has a nice lather to it and could be used as a daily face wash, in my opinion. However, its exfoliating factor is low. I feel that the exfoliating particles are really not that great, they are too big and too few to do a good. Job. I would have preferred to have a more sand like grit to really do a good exfoliating job on my skin.

My new favorite!

I love this exfoliator… it is just the right grittiness, where it feels like it's doing its job but it's not harming my skin at the same time. The scent is awesome - very light and a little citrusy. I use it all over my face, neck and chest in the shower at least once per week.
