Disappointed
Purchased

I have read many rave reviews about this product and was excited by the product description that it clears the dead skin cells that can cause breakouts. Unfortunately, my skin went bananas after using this product. I am prone to cystic acne and this product seemed to exacerbate cystic eruptions. I initially thought that my skin needed to adjust to the product and that it was forcing breakouts to the surface. After 2+ months with absolutely no reprieve from the painful blemishes, I gave up on this product. I really wanted to love this product.

I like the concept of a powder exfoliant, however, it was a) hard to find the right proportion of water to powder and b) it was a bit too harsh for my sensitive skin.

My skin is crazy sensitive and reactive, so this was irritating to my skin. I had really high hopes for this product because I've heard such great things about the brand, and I really need to find a way to exfoliate, but this isn't it. It seems like a great product and I've passed it on to a friend who loves it, so I would probably recommend it anyway, even though it didn't work for me.

This product was the only new facial thing i added to my daily routine and immediately i noticed my face turned into an oil slick. I didn't think it was that big of a deal but then i broke out all over my face; bad angry zits about 3 - 4 days in. I can't be positive that this was the cause but as i said it's the only new thing i added. Never using this again.

So so

It's product seems like it would be fun but its more of a mess. You can't use it in the shower for fear of water getting into the powder and it doesn't smell to good. For the price look at DDF skin care.

My girl friends all rave about this product, but I'm not sure I love it. I don't know if I'm adding too much water and it's not "pasty" enough but I just don't get that super smooth, clean feeling I like from other exfoliants.

Okay product

This product is pretty great at making the face feel super smooth and soft! However, it did leave my face very dry after I washed off the excess water. I probably wouldn't recommend it again.

Not a good fit for thick, oily skin

I was expecting powerful exfoliating results from this product and was sorely disappointed when I didn't feel like it even cleansed my face, much less exfoliated it. I used it in the shower every day until the sample was gone and never felt any difference in my skin. I am accustomed to a good scrub but I have used chemical exfoliants before that did seem to work, unfortunately this one did not. For someone with oily, thick skin, and who is used to the immediate gratification of a mechanical exfoliant, this product is probably not going to meet your needs.

Nice cleanser

I especially like this product for very sensitive skin, which I have. This is gentle enough for daily use, but I'm not blown away by the exfoliating properties. This is more of a deep cleanser that leaves your skin very soft, in my opinion. I prefer a little more "scrub" and glycol or ah acids for a weekly exfoliant. It also has an interesting scent... reminds me of warm milk. Not a favorite for me.

I just don't care for the powder mix. I have a hard time getting the water/powder portions right to have a good consistency. It seems to work fine, just not for me.
