Excellent general scrub - 13-07-2018 by

Such 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. - 10-07-2018 by

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 essential - 07-07-2018 by

I 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 it - 04-07-2018 by

 I love the fine yet gentle exfoliation beads and it makes my skin so soft.


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 does not dry my face out at all. I absolutely love Aesop products and have never come across a product that I don't like.They are awesome products that give you excellent results! I will definitely keep repurchasing!

Awesome - 01-06-2018 by

This is so genlte but effective and the lactic acid is a seriously amazing addition to the formula!

Very gentle - 18-05-2018 by

I 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! - 12-05-2018 by

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 scrub - 10-05-2018 by

I 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! - 29-04-2018 by

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 Product - 05-04-2018 by

I 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 beads - 02-11-2017 by

Gentle and does a great job. Goes a long way so I end up using it on my shoulders and arms in the shower.

Perfect Exfoliant - 11-10-2017 by

This 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 this - 21-07-2017 by

Great exfoliant that doesn't upset me skin. Leaves my skin so soft and fresh. would buy again

Great Product - 01-10-2014 by

It is a great exfoliator. Gentle but effective. I would purchase it again.

Gentle but very effective - 25-07-2014 by

I 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.
I will purchase again and would recommend for anyone with drier or sensitive skin who still wants a really effective scrub!

Great 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!

- 18-07-2008 by

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.

- 10-07-2008 by

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.
