Its not grainy and sandy like usual exfoliants. So it wont give you that feeling that a layer of skin had been scratched off your face. Its just enough to lightly remove dirt and skin cells without being harsh.
Pair it with the essential hydrating cream and youll have soft supple skin all year round. I use this in winter as where I live its very dry and cold. It helps to avoid dry skin (even on my arms and hands) and you can rub it into lips to avoid drying there too !
I think I like this even more than the other cleansers that I loved. The thickness of a balm and the pump pack top is awesome and makes it feel even more creamy and like its sticking to the dirt even more!
