Leaves you feeling cleanverified purchaserI like this exfoliant a lot. You can definitely feel the quartz when using it, plus the lactic acid is great for skin. I would recommend using this only once a week though, as it is pretty strong and over-use may result in stripping your face. I haven't experienced any dryness or skin damage using this once per week, and my face definitely feels smoother after use, which is great for makeup applic...Read More
Fresh and BeautifulI love this exfoliant for its grit. I feel it really getting in there and cleaning it all out. I leave the product on my face for 30 seconds to a minute for the acid to do it magic.
revitalises and soothesI use this only on my T-zone, concentrating on my nose. It's refreshing and helps pores. I also use it on my decollete area in the shower to help with slight pigmentation and uneven skintone.
so softa wonderful exfoliant that leaves my face feeling so soft and smooth, highly recommend
Fresh skinI use this very rarely but it really gets all the dead skin off, cleans my pores so well and gives me a bright glow!
Big win for skincareI love this product so much. I use it in the evenings and after some gentle exfoliation, I will let it sit for 2-3 minutes and get the lactic acid to do it's job a little longer. I love the smell and it gives my skin the purest feeling after without any tightness or dryness. Cannot recommend enough!
My all time favourite skin care productI just love this exfoliator so much.
It's decentThis is a decent scrub. The particles are definitely on the harsher side, which provides a thorough exfoliation which leaves the skin feel and look super clean, clear and toned. The smell could be better. It's an okay product, but I don't think I would repurchase if I found a more affordable product which provides same results.
Great for smoothing skin, i try to just use a little bit so I don't irritate my skinGreat for smoothing skin, I try to just use a little bit so I don't irritate my skin. It lasts for ages and is very easy to use.
so greatReally helped to even out my skin texture.
Excellent productI love this! It gives a really good exfoliation and leaves my face feeling squeaky clean and smooth. I use it when I really want to get rid of heavy make up and grime. Tube lasts ages too.
Gentle yet effectiveDefinitely repurchasing. This exfoliant is incredibly gentle and my skin afterwards is so soft and subtle.
LoveI love the scent of this exfoliate paste. It cleanse my skin and leaves it so soft. Definitely repurchase.
Love this product!What Aesop product doesn't feel and smell amazing, I mean really.
This is a beautiful exfoliant that leaves my skin feeling so soft and fully cleansed. It didn't dry my skin out at all but felt like a deep exfoliation. Would definitely recommend this product.
It has a price but its worth it.I love this exfoliate paste! It smells so good and leaves my skin so clean!!! Breakouts are at a minimum, and i just use a couple of days a week. Its a bit expensive but for me its worth it
I'm beginning to fall in love with AseopGot this as a freebie- used once and my skin was soft and plump. It is so light yet still feels like it is doing something to your skin but without any sort of harshness which I love. Also has a beautiful fresh all natural smell but that's nothing new for Aseop. So far I'm excited to explore this brand more!
Mixed FeelingsI tried a sample of this. While it left my skin feeling super soft and smooth I found it was more on the harsher side - I think maybe with continual use that could be damaging to the skin. But immediately after my skin looked brighter and felt clean.
Great for smooth skinA very nice and effective exfoliator that smooths and softens the skin, but helps it be more radiant too. Makeup goes on nicer. Great for oily skins, and pores, blackheads and pimples too.
In loveObsessed with this brand and this is just incredible. Love the way my skin feels afterwards.... a must have!!
abrasiveI found this exfoliant paste to be too abrasive for my face.
Such a great exfoliant.I only got to use this twice as I received a trial size but the results left my skin so soft. My skin was prepped and ready for skin care. I NEED to purchase this In full size AESOP lol
Pretty goodI want to buy every product of Aesop. This one is as good as others.
Pretty goodI love all the products from Aesop.
Great exfoliantUsed once a week, this is a great exfoliant. Really liked using. A bit expensive, but I just once a week makes it more value for money.
Facial Paste - differentthis product is different! it does exfoliate your face leaving it feeling smooth! ive never really used a facial exfoliant paste before!
not the biggest fanI like exfoliant pastes, really gives your skin a nice buff, but this one I wasn't a big fan of. The exfoliating particles felt uncomfortable on my face. Don't love the scent of the paste either
too harsh for my skinI have combination skin and I don't like the exfoliating bits in this paste. They feel too rough on my skin
Great ExfoliatorReally lovely exfoliator that removes dead skin and helps with my clogged pores, and leaves the skin super soft - the only downside is that it smells a bit like sour milk to me (could be the lactic acid). I use it 2-3 times a week depending on how my skin feels.
Good amount of scrub - gentle on the skinI have very sensitive skin that is prone to irritations especially with new or abrasive skin care products. This one is gentle on the skin and has a good amount of scrub that leaves the skin feeling extremely clean. It removes the deerskin and blackheads well.
I use it twice a week for clear smooth skin
Little goes a long way!A good scrub to use once a week. A very small amount is needed since it is quite grainy. Lasts for months and I find works really effectively, while still being gentle on the skin.
Deep cleanLove this, it gives a deep clean and feels refreshing afterwards. You can cut up the tube afterwards to get the most out of the product. A bit expensive but youre paying for the brand name
Love this!Find my skin is really clear after I use this, makes my face tingle and feel really lovely and fresh, I also the really neutral smell and appearance it has
great product but bad packagingI loved the product but felt I lost some of it because of the packaging
Really like thisIts effective and lovely to use, don't love the smell and it is a bit expensive
A nice light weight exfoliantA nice lightweight exfoliant, I like to use it every couple of days. It keeps my skin feeling nice and soft.
Simple and effectiveOne of the best exfoliant's that I've ever tried! My skin was so smooth after and cleared up in the following days. I would definitely recommend it!
Feels greatA good scrub to use once a week. A very small amount is needed since it is quite grainy. Lasts for months!
Great exfoliantThis stopped a potential breakout and also made my skin look
fresh and even-toned
Too rough for sensitive skinI found this way too rough for sensitive skin, it dried my face out and led to a breakout. Be really careful with this one if you are prone to breakouts.
GoodI received this as a sample and was really impressed with it. The texture was coarse enough that it cleaned my skin properly but didn't feel damaging. Being an Aesop product, it also smelt great. More on the pricey side but I will definitely consider purchasing the full size product.
Buffs away dead skinOverall a nice product that removes dead skin leaving the skin feeling smooth.
Not for sensitive skinI have sensitive skin and this was too harsh for me. The exfoliating crystals felt hard against my skin, ended up using on my body which was fine, but I wouldn't use this personally as a facial exfoliator
Bit harshI use this once in a while when I want a deep cleanse but if you have sensitive skin, I'd say the exfoliating particles are a bit harsh.
niceI’ve been using this exfoliator for a few years now & absolutely adore it. I use it before I wash my face in the morning to prep my skin for my face wash/mask. The quartz feels as though it’s giving my skin a proper good scrub without stripping or irritating it. My skin is left feeling radiant & spots are kept at bay! I love the packaging too! I’m tempted to try the Malin + Goetz one, but fear I w...Read More
Rare allergic reactionI’m very rarely allergic but broke out in a severe rash from something in this. I’m a regular user of many Aesop products and nothing else has caused it. I had to see a doctor who prescribed antihistamine tablets.
I got Aesop’s loose exfoliating grains instead which works without problems.
GoodOne of the best exfoliant's that I've ever tried! My skin was so smooth after and cleared up in the following days. I would definitely recommend it!
Best exfoliant everI love this product, it's one of my absolute favourites! I have problematic, oily + red skin and I find this works perfectly for me twice a week, followed by a face mask. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and rejuvenated. Compared to the more unnatural scrubs out there, this one is super gentle and doesn't leave your skin feeling weirdly tight or stripped. You also don't need to use a lot as the s...Read More
Too gritty for meI was surprised to find out how gritty this was! Too rough for me and the smell was not pleasant at all, and i usually like the herbaceous Aesop scent! Might be better off using this on the body.
The smell is overbearingI purchased this as I had not exfoliated for some time and was looking for a product that was suitable for my sensitive skin. I liked the soft feeling of my face after use. However, the smell is not only odd, it is absolutely putrid. I am not sure how I am going to be able to finish this product whilst dry reaching at every application.
Very effective exfoliator - bit too harsh for my faceI love Aesop, so to be honest I was a little surprised by they didn't quite nail it with this product. I use it on my body because its very effective and has quite a strange smell. I love aromatherapy and almost all essential oils but there's something quite odd about this smell, probably the lactic acid? Anyway. I definitely use mine on the body as its very effective and probably too harsh for my...Read More
Delivers!A great exfoliator, does the job very well. Can be a little rough, so probably ideal for use a couple of times a week.
Not for sensitive skinI love a lot of the aesop hand wash and hand care products as they work well for sensitive skin, however this exfoliant didn't work for me. It was much too harsh for my face. I use it as a body exfoliator and it's good for that
Not for my skinI really want to love the whole Aesop range, but I can't. I dream of having my bathroom stocked with their little glass jars and quality products, but my dream isn't going to come true. I used this exfoliant as it was recommended to me knowing I had rosacea and sensitive skin (not by Adorebeauty). For me, this exfoliant felt rough and not at all gentle in that sense and I didn't like the smell of ...Read More
Supple and smoothReceived a sample with my recent order. I have combination skin but need extra hydration during the winter months. I normally use Skinstitute Gylocolic Scrub ( which is very good ) but with this Aesop Exfoliant Paste left my skin quite soft and nourished. I really think this would be the one to use during the cold, dry season.
Great productI love this exfoliator. It's quite harsh so I only use it twice a week but it leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean.
GREAT FOR ALLI have combination skin and it’s great for fighting blackheads and grime I the t-zone area. I usually use a mask straight afterwards to get the best benefit
Excellent general scrubSuch a good product - does what it says on the tin. Gentle enough to use a few times a week. I have oily skin that gets a bit dry in places during winter - this has never left me with that super dry, tight feeling some scrubs do. Received as a little sample in the Aesop store and purchased it within the week. Perfect if you're looking for a general use scrub :)
Best gentle facial exfoliant ever.I am forever re purchasing this product it is so gentle and makes you feel fresh as a daisy after you use. My only wish is they made a larger tube as its so wonderful to use regularly. I have converted so many girlfriends to this product.
Absolute essentialI have combination skin with blemishes on my cheeks and forehead. I love using this mask a couple of times a week. It completely changes my skin into gorgeous, smooth and blemish free! Everyone in my family has tried it and it works so well on all their skin types, so i would really recommend this for everyone!
Love itI love the fine yet gentle exfoliation beads and it makes my skin so soft.
GENTLE AND EFFECTIVE EXFOLIANT! SMELLS AMAZING!I have combination, acne-prone and sensitive skin so it is very hard to find products that don't break me out and irritate my skin. I started to use this after I received a sample and I fell in love with it. I use it once or twice a week depending on how i'm feeling and my skin has never looked better! I wake up with my face feeling so soft and smooth. It's quite gentle but very effective and it d...Read More
AwesomeThis is so genlte but effective and the lactic acid is a seriously amazing addition to the formula!
Very gentleI use to be worried about using exfoliators as I have quick sensitive skin however found this product to be super gentle and does the job.
Very exfoliating - be gentle!This facial exfoliant does its job WELL - so well that I would recommend you applying the least amount of pressure possible to avoid potentially irritating your skin with the quartz particles. When I'm after a deep exfoliation, I very gently massage it all over my face and then leave on for 5 mins as it has lactic acid in it.
Effective scrubI love the Aesop range, the scent is relieves a lot of stress. This scrub is effective, but it is slightly abrasive. Still very decent before a clay mask.
Amazing!I've been using this exfoliant for almost a year and I can't imagine using anything else. I'm prone to dry skin, especially in winter and this has been perfect to remove dry, dead skin. I also have very sensitive skin and I've never had any reactions from the Aesop range.
Excellent ProductI have very sensitive skin and am very pleased with this product. It leaves my face and neck soft and feeling very clean. Will definitely purchase again.
Wonderful Quartz instead of plastic beadsGentle and does a great job. Goes a long way so I end up using it on my shoulders and arms in the shower.
Perfect ExfoliantThis is the best exfoliant I’ve come across by far. The fine granulas aren’t harsh and my skin is left feeling so soft.
So happy to have found thisGreat exfoliant that doesn't upset me skin. Leaves my skin so soft and fresh. would buy again
Great ProductIt is a great exfoliator. Gentle but effective. I would purchase it again.
Gentle but very effectiveI had heard good things about Aesop Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste and it didn't disappoint, the quartz really gives a good exfoliation without drying out my skin.
My skin feels so soft and looks bright and clear after using this product.
I'm not a huge fan of the scent and I felt the price was a little steep but you need a minimal amount of product so the tube will last awhile.
Read MoreGreat exfoliator that helps to keep my skin clear and smooth. Really not very keen on the smell, it is quite strong, but will buy again as I love how my skin feels and looks after I use it. Now a staple in my bathroom.A fantastic manual exfoliant. It's a little tube, but a little goes a long way and it will last me ages. The scent isn't for everyone, but I like it and the quartz in the product is lovely!I am a big fan of this stuff. It's not my favorite ever scrub, but it comes close. I love the fine yet gentle exfoliation beads and it makes my skin so soft.Rinses cleanly without any residue and leaves skin clean but not stripped and very soft. The strong rosemary scent is not for everyone, and the quartz exfoliants feel sort of hard and gritty but it is a gentle and very effective product.
