I have dry skin and MUST use exfoliating face products or else my skin will look very dull. I'm always up for trying new products, so I was excited when I received this sample. I think the product did a good job exfoliating... I could feel the little exfoliating pearls working as I applied the product. However, the product felt very sticky after application, and I did not notice any of the other stated benefits. I have been using it at night because I do not think I would like the sticky feeling on my face all day. I haven't noticed a huge difference vs. the facial products I already use. Probably not going to be a future purchase.
