I rarely use exfoliating products because they are too harsh and can irritate my sensitive skin. I had my doubts that this product with its gritty texture would be any different. First, the smell is wonderful! So lemony, fresh, and invigorating! The product itself was a bit hard to get out- I prefer tubes to pots where you have to dip your fingers in like this product. I was also skeptical based on its really gritty and dry texture that it could be foaming. Sure enough after starting to rub, the sugar melted and it became a liquid texture- calling it "foaming" might be a stretch. My only other complaint was that I like products that feel like they wash clean- (I know probably bc its stripping oils, etc- ha!) but this left my face feeling a bit tacky feeling until it dried. My skin looks clean though. I think this is a once a week type of product for sensitive skin.
