Since alpha hydroxyl acid can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, a good sunscreen is a must. Keep it natural with Marie Veronique Organics® Everyday Sheer Coverage, SPF 20

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.

Great for pre-shave exfoliation
Purchased

I keep this in the shower and use it to slough off dead skin on my legs and under my arms before shaving. It helps the razor run far smoother, preventing nicks and irritation. This is my second tube and I'll definitely be keeping it on permanent reorder. The results are like night and day.

just a little harsh

While I love the ingredients and benefits of this it can be a little rough on your skin. Please be careful and don' over do it!

More like a cleanser
Purchased

This scrub is just ok it only has a few scrubbers in it and a lot of thick cleanser. If you like dr.brandt and Kate sommerville scrubs you will not like this. I use it as a cleanser and not a scrub. Will not be repurchasing

Left me fresh faced
Purchased

This is a great product for people looking to wake up their skin. I have breakout prone skin but this product is gentle & left my skin so soft. I'm ready to order my next bottle!

In love

I love how this face scrub works on my skin, especially when used with my other one alternately. It has left my skin feeling fresh and renewed. My pores have been getting smaller as well. I will definitely repurchase this when I run out.

Only okay for a scrub

I really liked the other moisturizing and cleansing products in this line, but this scrub leaves a residue behind that makes me feel like my face isn't as clean as I would like it to be, so I won't continue to use this product.

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.
