Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Not the best scrub I've used. It smells quite strong, and personally, the smell isn't the most pleasant. I use it more like a mask somebecause there isnt much scrubby stuff in the scrub if you get me. I spread it on my face, leave it on for no more than 5 minutes, and then wash it off. If I leave it on longer, my face burns a little bit afterwards and turns red. Along with most masks or scrubs I use, I have to finish with a face wash because I have an oily residue left on my face. I just figured thats what most masks or scrubs do, because I have yet to find one that doesn't leave a residue on my face. On the instructions it does say to wipe off excess residue with their tea tree oil pads, which does work too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this gentle yet efficient scrub I bought this scrub and me and my husband absolutely adore it, we both have sensitive skin and its just the right amount to exfoliate, but today I opened it and I noticed green mold on the top, I know its a natural scrub so maybe you need to use it in two weeks or something? wondering if I should throw it out or just get rid of the bad parts...anyways, I still love this scrub regardless and we also use the non GMO toothpaste which is perfection!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One Of My DE Favorites ! I bought my first DE scrub about a year ago, have repurchased it twice so far, and plan to continue doing so. What I find so amazing about this particular scrub, and unprecedented, is that is does not, in any way whatsoever, irritate my sensitive skin. And usually I have the type of skin that, if you even look at it funny, turns bright red and blotchy. But this scrub has some type of ingredient, perhaps several, that actually soothes my skin and calms that redness down. And the granules are so finely milled that there is no sensation of being scraped or sloughed like some of the other brands out there. I also use this scrub on my body with wonderful results as well. My only complaint, if you want to call it that, is that I would love to see a drop of a scented essential oil added in, like lavender or even vanilla or eucalyptus. The scent of the scrub smells a bit like dirt, and while it doesn't bother me at all and is not offensive in any way, it would be nice to have a slightly different scent. Just a suggestion, DE, because I will continue to buy it regardless :)

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.
