Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product STINKS! I've only used this scrub twice, because I have a strong aversion to the smell. The cucumber scent just doesn't mesh well with the other fragrance of the product. I thought that this scrub would be comparable to St. Ives Apricot Scrub, which I loved and used regularly until the company was purchased by Unilever. In terms of cleansing and exfoliating, it works quite just smells bad while it gets the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mild and just right for me. I've been using this face scrub daily and it's the only thing I use to clean my face. I have naturally oily skin and am in my mid 50s. My skin always feels great after using it - neither stripped or oily. And I love the fragrance - not perfumed but rather earthly and natural.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to be great I bought this product a couple of months ago after many years of use and evidently the formula has been changed. The recent jar is way less thick to the extent that I must completely dry my skin before use in order to get any scrubbing action. I assume the water content has been greatly increased and since that is the first ingredient listed there would be no need to change the label in order to increase the water. Don't even consider using in the shower now. I used to think highly of this product - it worked well. But now it has been cheapened, is diluted so doesn't stay on the skin long enough to scrub and the jar doesn't last as long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Skin After using this scrub my skin is so soft and smooth. It really helps get rid of any pimples, too. It smells terrible, but is so worth it. And just a little goes a long way on your face.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please bring back the original Oat Scrub recipe! I have been using this product for about 20 years and love it. Desert Essence/Kikkoman: Please go back to and forever keep the original formula, as it had the perfect balance of exfoliating action and moisturising base. Otherwise, you will not compete as well with other products already available. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best exfoliant - ever I am now on my 3rd tub of this product. I originally found it at a spa in California, and when that ran out, I was happy to find that I would be able to purchase it direct. It makes my skin feel smooth and clean, even after washing my face. It takes very little to get the full effect, so it lasts for quite awhile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Natural feel! I have been looking for a face mask to gently work on my skin. If you are too, look no further. I could feel it working the minute I put it on. It's amazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great I am lucky enough to have good facial skin, meaning that I don't have to exfoliate or do anything special very often. I use this product about once per week. Despite not using it on a regular basis, I can still tell that it does a good job exfoliating in a gentle manner. My only complaint about the product is that it does not smell very good... not that it's a horrible smell, but it's not a pleasant smell. It's tolerable, though. Thus, I will continue to use it.
