Good weekly exfoliant
Love ThisI love this scrub! I have been using this for years and since I tried it I will never use anything else. It removes all dead skin cells without being too harsh. My skin feels so soft and smooth after using. I use it a few times a week and the tube lasts forever as you don't need much!
Amazing. Really helps with my congestionI really love this product, I have a combination skin and I have found that it has really helped stabilise my oil flow and help my congestion. Would buy again!
LoveHighly recommend this product for people with combination skin and prone to small breakouts. This product along with a few other Skinstitut products has done wonders for my skin!
Great price for it’s worthLoved this! Gives a great exfoliation and makes your skin feel so clean and healthy afterwards!
Can't live withoutused 2-3 times a week. This helps keeps the face renewed, soft and helps keep away built up skin
Can not live withoutAbsolute best exfoliant I've used. Gentle on the skin and leaves it soft and supple. Doesn't feel too scratchy.
Lives in my shower caddy and I use it every second or 3rd day depending on how my skin feels
HG Facial ScrubThis is my HG facial scrub. I use it three times a week and nothing leaves my face as clean and renewed. Using this means I no longer feel the need to get microdermabrasion done. Be careful if you have sentive skin though. I know a few people who have tried this and ended up red and agitated by this.
Great exfoliator!!I have been using this product for over 1 year now. Such a great product to use every day and great for after laser use to get rid of the dead skin and blackheads. Makes the skin feel super smooth afterwards.
I love this product!This is the best exfoliant I’ve used for my skin no matter how many other products I try I come back to this one, I only use it a few times a week and it always leave my skin so smooth and fresh.
Best body exfoliant - but not for the face!This is a fantastic whole-body exfoliant, but I found it a bit harsh for use on a face!
I have oily skin that's not at all sensitive. I love Skinstitut's glycolic 12% cleanser - I'd stick with using that on the face but for use on the body, this product is fantastic. Leaves skin silky-smooth, I'm slightly addicted to it.
I’m in love.I received this as a freebie and after running out of my old scrub I decided to give it a go. I’ve since been using it twice a week and gosh it’s good, gives a really deep scrub, creates such a great smooth base on my face without drying it out. I won’t be repurchasing my previous scrub and have decided to permanently switch to this one, great price too!
Amazing for combination skin all year roundThis product is a crazy affordable investment! Implementing this in to my weekly pamper routine was the best thing I’ve done for my skin! I use this along side other skinstitut products.
GoodIt really works in the beginning. you can notice it working as blackheads come off. Might be drying
Works well for combination skin :)I have been using this product 2-3 times a week for a couple of years now and it still works so perfectly. I have combination skin with acne scarring from teen years and using this scrub helps keep my skin looking and feeling clean!
My FAVE Exfoliator!!!This is my all time favourite exfoliator...no matter how many I try I always go back to this one. I’ve been using it for 7 years. I use it once or twice a week. It’s amazing! I like to use it like a mask. I put it on dry skin. Leave on for 10-15 min and then scrub with water. Leaves my skin feeling so smooth. And added bonus is it’s affordability!!
the BEST physical scrub you will ever useI've tried practically every exfoliant on the market and I can say without a doubt if physical exfoliation is your go, this is the product to use as it doesnt scrub your skin off, but also tingles through the active glycolic acid to work on a deeper level
Perfect exfoliating productThis product is gentle yet effective for my skin. It gets rid of all blackheads and gives a great exfoliation for super soft skin. I use once- twice a week as it is enough for soft skin
A staple in my showerIt works and you will see results straight away.
Great productI received a sample of this scrub. I only used it a couple of times within a week as I read it can cause flakiness/damage if used too often. I am purchasing this along with the L-Lactic Acid because my skin loves this brand. My face is smooth and my skin looks really clear
Love itI use this daily and follow with SP50 moisturizer and then bb cream and love it! Clears my congested, oily skin.
Great ExfoliateI like this scrub, you feel like you're really getting rid of the dead skin! I especially like applying it to dry skin, leaving it on for a few minutes and then add water.
not sure to be honesti really wanted to try a product with glycolic - the beads on this one feel really harsh to me. I have been putting it on and then just pressing it a few times and leaving it to give the glycolic time to work. I had been using a much finer exfoliant (Khiels) so perhaps that is why. I just feel like i am scratching my face? It is a massive big tube - so its excellent value for money. I think its probably a good product but perhaps not for me - older skin. Because its such good value for money though i have been using on my chest and i think that there is some improvement in the sun damage there
A fantastic body scrubI bought this for a body acne scrub and to deal with ingrown hairs. The scrub leaves your skin looking fresh and feels super soft.
I don’t use it one my face though as I find it a bit too harsh for my face. It really lasts too!
StapleThis is now a staple in my skin care routine , I had neglected my skin for months and got back into it all and I love this scrub it’s exactly what I needed to complete my now perfect skin care routine it cleans my skin so well and helps me unclog my pores for my other skin care to sink into my skin better thanks
Very good scrub productI have been using this product for more than a year now. Would definitely recommend it. My skin feel very smooth and soft after using. Also help a lot with the in-grow hair issue.
great for black heads and minimising poresThis scrub is certainly not the finest or softest scrubs but it does a great job of minimizing pores and clearing blackheads. I find it best to use it a few times a week and only on days where I haven't used any other manual exfoliants.
Great productGreat product
Thumbs upThis has made my skin smooth and blemish free for weeks now. Can certainly feel your skin is firmer after using this. Highly recommend.
Good weekly exfoliantLeaves skin radiant and smooth but can be too harsh if used more than once a week.
Great productThis product feels great in your skin and clears it almost Instantly
Always come back to thisI always try a different a different scrub every time I run out of this product, but I always always come back to it!!
I love how my skin feels after and especially how my make up glides on. Definitely recommend it!
Wish I had purchased sooner!I have been using skinstitut products for over 5 years but have never used this product. I recently purchased it based on the reviews and I love it. It does a great job at exfoliating and leaves my skin feeling so lovely and soft. My skin can be slightly sensitive and I have found this gentle enough to use twice a week.
Great twice a week scrubThis is a staple in my bathroom cabinet. I have used this scrub for the last 2 years and will never live without it. Whenever i feel like my skin needs extra TLC or if I feel like my skin will break out I will use this. Normally I use this scrub twice a week and it keeps my skin at bay. I love the texture of the scrub and feel it go to work as soon as i put it on my skin, the added benefit is really the high percentage of glycolic - only reason i continuously purchase this product.
It works!For the price point, this product is fantastic. My skin glows and is baby smooth after use. Stings a little on application, but not for long. As its 14% glycolic, after a vigorous scrub, I leave it on for 15 minutes as a face mask then wash off. Great for back of hands, and I also massage it, very gently, onto my decolletage occasionally too.
The best scrub I’ve foundSuper small particles polish skin perfectly without making your skin feel tight and dry. I use this frequently on my chin and it helps heaps with my hormonal breakouts. Lasts forever. Prepare to be addicted!
Amazing!This product is perfect! I use it on my face every night as I had stubborn pimples and black heads that I could not get rid of. This did wonders! With in a week it was all clear.
I wouldn’t recommend to use every night if you have sensitive skin though.
Fantastic scrubThis scrub is fantastic! It feels so nice on my skin and helps to keep my skin blemish free.
A tough scrubI bought this for a body acne scrub. It does a good job if you’re looking for a physical and chemical body exfoliator. I don’t use it one my face though as I find it a bit too harsh for my face. It really lasts too!
Great for congested skinI have really congested skin and started using the glycolic scrub alongside the cleanser for years now. The scrub leaves your skin looking fresh and feels super soft. Have bought it time and time again. Good not only for your face but a good scrub after you've had laser etc. to stop ingrown hairs!
A fantastic body scrubThis scrub is fantastic value. I keep it in my shower and use it as a body scrub.
good scrubI went to the laser clinic australia and I thought they used that on me but I think what they had was slightly different. However I still like this scrub. I only use it once a week because I have sensitive dry skin. If you have that type of skin you might not like it, it stings a little after using it. The tube is so big it will last me forever
Love it!My last AHA cleanser cost me double so I am very happy I found a replacement thats half the cost and works even better!
Great product for acne and blackheadsI got a sample of this product and had to buy the full size once I'd tried it. It is quite abrasive, but I find it is good on my chin and jaw line where I get pimples and blackheads.
Really effective!This is a great physical scrub!
I use a lot of Skinstitut products and am really happy with them.
I use this scrub when I feel like my skin is starting to get a bit congested and I really find it helps slough away dry skin. My skin feels much finer afterwards and my serums/creams soak in a bit better. I think it would be a bit too abrasive for me to use twice weekly, or even weekly but roughly fortnightly works for me.
Plus, the big bottle is very cost effective!
Most effective exfoliator I’ve usedThis is the first exfoliator I’ve ever used where the micro beads actually stay there while you’re rubbing. Most other products, you’ve lost the granules straight away. With this it stays there and WORKS! It’s too harsh for my face because of this, however it’s a dream on my body. Highly recommend!
As good as a microdermI purchased this after a trip to the beautician and a microderm. She advised me to get a good exfoliator and I came across this on Adore. So happy to have bought this! It has kept that straight out of the microderm feel on my face and has the environmental respect of jojoba beads
Great ProductI have recently been having a lot of breakouts since having my son, and nothing was helping me and since using the Skinstitut Glycolic Products my skin has cleared up and kept the breakouts to a bare minimum.
Goodbye prolonged breakouts.This product I have been using to control hormonal break around my chin.
I apply this product daily to my chin area when required.
Otherwise every second. Reduced pain & inflammation.
My favourite face scrubThis product works perfectly to control my oily skin and eliminate breakouts.
Really niceI have normal/combo skin and find this tube lasts forever and use once or twice a week and it leaves my skin feeling really lovely and smooth.
amazingThis is a good scrub for your face and your legs and arms
GoodI have received this as a free gift. It’s a good product, not harsh, suitable for everyday use. But it’s nothing special, doesn’t perform miracles or anything, nothing about it makes me go “I have to buy this”.
My new holy grailI have struggled with my skin my whole life, which has left me reluctant to try new products for fear of breaking out/more redness. But recently when on holiday and staying with a friend I used her bottle of this, and MY GOD. This is so gentle whilst also making a noticeable difference. It's also half the price of the skin scrub I had been using. So worth it, and also investigating their other products.
Post-laser excellenceI started using this on my legs after getting laser done - I had to use it more frequently than recommended (in consultation with my technician) but even then it wasn't overly drying. Great product.
Bit strong for meI have combination skin and this scrub dried my skin out a bit. I find it a little harsh on the skin for my liking. I prefer a chemical exfoliator than a scrub
Good regular facial scrubThis is a nice gentle scrub to use on the face. It isn't harsh on the skin and leaves it feeling smooth and hydrated. I'd consider using it again however I'm not a fan of tea tree oil
Great productThis product makes my skin glow! You only need a small amount and the product doesn't irritate my skin. Would definitely recommend
No more pimplesI wasn’t sure whether this would help my hormonal pimples (more like cysts). After using it twice a week for about 2 months now along with glycolic cleanser, I’ve had no pimples. It’s an amazing product and will definitely repurchase.
Brings out any acne in the skinI have used this for a week, three times, and it has brought out a lot of dormant acne I couldn't budge before. My skin glows after use and it definitely exfoliates well. Probably don't need to use three times a week as suggested on bottle, this is a bit too abrasive for my skin. Would recommend.
Good for laser treatmentI got this product for in between laser hair removal appointments. It’s made my sensitive skin feel really lovely, and improved the appearance of the skin.
Cannot live withoutI have normal to combination skin and if I go a week without this scrub you can see the difference.
I use this three times a week and it keeps my texture at bay especially along my jaw line.
I scrub gently for 30 seconds then leave it to sit on my face for a minute or two before rinsing off.
Too abrasiveThis product reminds me a bit of the old st Ives apricot scrub. I appreciate it’s got a good glycolic formula but the granules are quite abrasive. I think you’d be better off with a aha/mask or toner - or find a scrub with very fine particles
Holy GrailMy absolute holy grail face scrub. It has helped with my redness and you can feel it working. Love it.
The GO-TO face scrubIm in love with this exfoliator! I have combination oily skin with regular breakouts and this scrub is amazing and it leaves my skin feeling soft and I know I can trust Skinstitut's formula to ensure I'm getting the best possible exfoliation. I love that it is so SO affordable and you get so much in one bottle so you never have to worry about using it sparingly.
CLEARS MY SCARS AND ACNEI have fair/medium skin and my hair is light brown and I chose this scrub because I needed to clear my acne and scarring and it did exactly that! It is so gentle for my skin as my skin is sensitive and I would recommend purchasing it as it is a holy grail product!
Pimples be gone!This is my favourite product out of the skinstitut range!
This little miracle worker is a definite must have for twice a week in the shower to help even out skin tone and exfoliate the week away. If you notice a spot or two increase the use to daily and those little spots will dissapear pretty much instantly. Highly recommend for anyone to incorporate into their skin routine.
GreatWorks magic for congested skin. Great for giving your pores a good clean
An exfoliator you can actually feel on your face!I was looking for an exfoliator/scrub I could really feel and this definitely does that! My face feels so clean and refreshed after a scrub. I also use liquid gold but just love the feeling of using the scrub a couple of times a week.
Good after laser hair removalThis is a great scrub for body after laser hair removal. It is ok on face too but I wouldn't use all the time as it is a hit harsh.
Use gentlyThis scrub is great, it’s extremely exfoliating so use gently to remove dead skin. Can leave sensitive skin a little dry and irritated so use a really good serum and hydrating moisturiser. I use it once a week and love how smooth my skin feels after.
Good but not greatI like that it has tiny granules that scrub your face but I feel like I need to cleanse thoroughly after using it as I still feel oily
brilliantI have been using this product for 6 months now and I love it. It makes my skin glow every time I use it.
Holy Grail!I usually never write reviews on any product but this product has helped clear my skin of acne on my cheeks that I've struggled to get rid of for 2 years!
Yes, it does have a purging stage and I went through this for 1 month. All of my acne came out within that 1 month but it was all worth it because, after that, I didn't break out anymore. I still have hormonal acne at the time of the month but other than that, my 2-year problem with acne has cleared up because of this product used in conjunction with L-Lactic Cleanser. I have very sensitive skin and even Cetaphil breaks me out. I will not use any other product for my skin. It's a bit pricey but I'm willing to pay for clear skin.
Fantastic productThis scrub is amazing, you only need such a small amount. Love it
Does what it says, but can be dryingA great exfoliator with my beloved glycolic acid!
Once a week I use this to help gently exfoliate my skin. It definitely helps promote cell renewal and brightening, but due to the nature of using acids, it can be drying. It's also a physical scrub, which can cause redness and skin tearing if you aren't very gentle with it. With that in mind, I DONT recommend if for sensitive skin. If you want chemical/ acid exfoliation for sensitive skin, try this in the 12% cleanser form.
GoodThis glycolic scrub is incredible for taking off my dead skin and keeping my skin smooth without irritating it
Stable scrubThis is my staple scrub - it works brilliantly, causes no irritation or unwanted redness, isn't too drying and allows my skin to be balanced (not too dry or oily). I always notice a reduction in any blackheads or red bumps with use. I use it every second day with the other skinstitut products.
Great scrubI own a few skinsuit scrubs and cleansers as I find them to be really affective. This scrub is really nice and cleanses right down leaving me with super clean and smooth skin
Great for exfoliating laser areasHeard on Instagram that this was good for those getting laser hair removal on the face. I am a 20 y.o. guy with normal skin who has been getting my cheek and neck lasered along the beard line and I found that this scrub helped remove the lasered hair. Of course I used this scrub on the rest of my face and found that it left my skin feeling so smooth and clean without being too harsh. It has a nice scent, kind of medical/hospital/sterile, I think it's the tea tree oil - you definitely feel refreshed and clean after using this.
It’s alrightI have is ed this scrub a few times and every time it has made my face feel so smooth but made my forehead breakout! Wouldn’t recommend using it if you have sensitive skin!
Effective scrubI love this scrub, gentle enough on my skin but does the job perfectly. My skin feel very smooth after using and help with the ingrown hair issue.
Best stuff to get rid of blackheads!When used in combination with the Glycolic cleanser this scrub works wonders! I use it once a week and the blackheads on my nose seem to stay at bay :) highly recommended
Excellent post laser hair removalI use this from day 5 onwards after laser hair removal. It works well to exfoliate and prevent ingrown hairs. I would find it too rough for facial skincare; and it doesn't have a pleasant scent sadly.
Amazing productI was first recommended this product when I first started laser bust was a bit apprehensive about the price. However, it's worth the cost as it's great for ingrown hairs and congested skin. Absolutely love this product and I always replace it once I've run out.
GoodThis is a great exfoliant that I use a couple of times a week. It helps with congestion and improves my complexion. This also lasts for a long time
Love this scrub!The glycolic scrub is a must have addition in my skincare routine. the texture is wonderful and having combination skin it definitely helps keep my skin smooth and blemish free without drying it out which easily happens with a lot of other products.
Not too badI used this for a few weeks and it went well but then it caused me to break out, I do not recommend for combination/sensitive skin.
Overall good productGreat scrub! I use it at night leaves my skin feeling well cleaned!
Brilliant scrubMinimises blackheads and breakouts. Exfoliates and cleanses my skin leaving it refreshed! Highly recommend! Best scrub I have ever used
amazing for acneI scrubbed my neck, chest and arms with this scrub and has really, really improved my acne in those areas as well as brightening my skin
Good productA great body exfoliator to use after laser hair removal. Helps clear out pores
best scrubBest scrub i have ever used. exfoliates my skin very well and removes all dead skin to make my skin clear and soft. helps control break outs
Glycolic is miracleGlycolic is miracle for skin.
Seriously it does what it says.
Just a simple scrubIt’s very basic! Nothing too fancy
Great exfoliatorI use this on my face, neck and body and it is a great exfoliator, it’s not too harsh and brightens my skin
Great for regular use and consistent resultsI heard of this product through a friend who has been using it for a while and wouldn't stop recommending it to me - I finally bought it about 6 months ago and I have never had such good results from an exfoliating/cleanser product before than I do with this scrub. I've always been quite conscious that I have large pores and using the Glycolic Scrub 14% has drastically reduced them. It has also cleared up the black heads and imperfections on my skin and now my makeup goes on my face way easier and more consistently. I definitely recommend using this - I keep it in the shower and use about 3-4 times a week
gentle, yet exfoliatinga gentle face wash that I also use on my neck. Exfoliates and brightens and leaves my skin feeling super tight and shiny
Love itVery strong scrub and removed absolutely all the dead skin on your skin. Very impressive and this brand is great! Yay!!
Must have!I use this scrub 3 times a week and every time it feels like Iv had microdermabrasion! Definitely helps rid your skin congestion!
Did what I bought it for!I wanted to get rid of the blackheads I had on my boobs and this was what was recommended. I've been using for about a week I'd say they are reduced by 90% and I couldn't be happier with the results! I am also using it to try and reduce my more difficult nose blackheads and it has done the best job out of anything else I've tried, reducing my pores by about 50% I'd say, which is a noticeable difference. I would recommend.
