Birchbox Breakdown

Anyone who’s suffered from chapped cheeks or painful redness after using a rough facial scrub knows that not all exfoliators are created equal. This powerful microdermabrasion treatment instantly brightens all skin types by gently buffing away dead skin cells, revealing radiant, healthy skin underneath. Over time, it even reduces the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, and discoloration. The best part? No appointment-making hassle or big spend necessary: The exfoliant is designed to mimic in-office treatments but can be used at home.

How it Works

This highly effective formula contains pharmaceutical-grade aluminum oxide crystals, which work to remove dead skin cells and improve texture, and is free of sulfates, phthalates, and synthetic chemicals. All-natural jojoba, aloe vera, and chamomile soothe, soften, and refresh newly exposed skin. As if flawless skin weren’t enough, it also leaves behind an invigorating citrus scent.

How to Use

Apply a quarter-sized amount to damp skin and gently massage in circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Rinse. Use only 1-2 times per week, letting skin rest for 3 days between treatments.

Best exfolient I've ever used!
SampledPurchased

This product is amazing. Once a week or sometimes a bit more frequently I use this product in the shower. I use just a pea sized amount and massage over my face and neck for a good 1-2 minutes, then rinse and my skin feels ultra smooth. After I step out of the shower I moisturize my face, otherwise it can feel a bit dry, but it removes a layer of skin so I think that is expected. All flakes are gone and my skin feels ultra-soft (especially my nose where I tend to have clogged pores). I never thought I would spend this much on an exfoliant, but it will last me months if not a year and it is well worth it for the results.

A scrub that delivers

I purchased this based on reviews and love it! My face feels very smooth afterwards, but it doesn't seem like a harsh chemical product.

AMAZING

I have never used something that clears up my skin like this product and i have tried pretty much everything from proactive to most prescription medicine.

Love it

I love this scrub. My face feels so smooth after using. It's pricey, so it's more of an occasional splurge, rather than something I use everyday.

Great exfoliator!
Sampled

This exfoliator smells great! I was expecting a harsh facial scrub but this was so fine and gentle. My skin was glowing for a week. I would give it 5 stars but it's a little expensive for my liking. :(

Good, mild facial scrub

Took this on a recent trip with me and worked wonders to get the grime off of my face after a day outside. The scrub is fine so it's rather gentle for an exfoliating facewash

Sooo good. Sooo expensive.
Sampled

This is by far the best exfoliating scrub I've tried. You can scrub the heck out of your face and it won't be irritated but it will glow like never before. It smells like lemons. Not like lemon pledge or anything but like fresh lemons. I can't justify the price though no matter how good it is. It's way better than Philosophy's scrub, but at least Philosophy is reasonably priced. :(

LOVE!

Honestly, I don't exfoliate as often as I should...but this product changed that. I couldn't believe how amazing my face felt after the first use. My skin can sometimes be sensitive to products like this, but I didn't have any problems at all.
