This exfoliator is gritty, in a good way, but the aloe is nourishing and allows it to be suitable for every day use. The packaging is beautiful and the product is something I would expect to see in a spa. I have normal skin, but need moisturizer. This product is so moisturizing I think I would be able to skip the moisturizer if I needed to. Very happy with this purchase and I will definitely be checking out other items in this line.
