Not a huge fan
Purchased

After receiving my sample, I decided to purchase. I will not be purchasing this again, though. It left an oily residue on my face that did not leave my skin feeling fresh and clean. I liked the idea of a natural exfoliant, but I did not feel this was effective enough for my skin. It is also difficult to use at the sink. It is very grainy for an exfoliant and does not wash off well. The scent is a little pungent, but easy to get used to.

Great natural exfoliant for sensitive skin

This cleanser has worked very well for my dry and sensitive skin as an occasional exfoliant. I use it a couple times a week and my skin looks better with each use! The smell took a little getting used to but it isn't that strong. It comes in a metal tube, which while more environmentally friendly than plastic, it can be tough to get the last bit out of the tube. This product is worth it, though.

Love this product

This product is really an exfoliant. It is very gentle and has an oatmeal like smell. I have sensitive and dry skin so I only use this product every few days but really like the way is leaves my skin feeling (other products rough up my skin or dry it out).

Better as an exfoliant

I have oily, sensitive skin that is prone to acne. I found that using Dr. Hauschka's Cleansing Cream as a weekly exfoliant was more effective than using it as a daily cleanser. When I used it daily, my skin started to loose too much of its natural oil, resulting in an overproduction of oil, that made my breakouts worse.

But, as a weekly exfoliant, I think this product works. My skin doesn't feel raw or overly irritated (like so many scrubs that practically take off a layer of skin) yet it takes off some of the dead cells that my sensitive skin cleanser leaves hanging around. The texture is nice too, it feels smooth and doesn't contain particles that are sharp or abrasive.

In regards to the smell, it doesn't bother me. It reminds me of yeast. However, I am an avid baker, so the scent is not out of the ordinary!

Meh

I thought this product worked well, but I hated the way it smelled. Also, I was oily again soon after. Would not recommend.
