Baby bum skin!


Takes the top layer off, skin feels so wonderful afterwards. Can’t wait to try it on the red bumps on my arms too!

Most Helpful Criticism

A harsh scrub for sensitive skin


I began using this product one a week as a physical exfoliant. I now prefer to use a Alpha-H liquid gold rather than a rough scrub. I do however get sweat pimples on my back and chest. This scrub is great to use in the shower for these areas.
  1. very rough


    This is one rough scrub. My skin is not at all sensitive, and although this does not leave me red, I can see how it very easily would do so. I prefer a chemical exfoliant, like an AHA/BHA acid.
  2. Baby bum skin!


    Takes the top layer off, skin feels so wonderful afterwards. Can’t wait to try it on the red bumps on my arms too!
  3. Holy Grail


    I’ve been using this product for years and nothing comes close. My skin is left so smooth after using it and the bottle lasts forever. It’s an absolute must for those who like using a physical scrub. I wouldn’t recommend this for sensitive or problematic skin as it’s quite abrasive.
  4. silky smooth


    This scrub works wonders. Since I started using it regularly (2 x week) it has significantly improved the texture and clarity of my skin. I've even received compliments!! I attribute the compliments for my super smooth skin to this amazing scrub
  5. Clears my congestion beautifully, softens my skin and helps turnover

    Cynical Blue J

    I wasn't sure what to expect because I got a free sample. I was excited to try it because I've needed something to help with pore size and clearing congestion. Because the tester is a decent size of 50 mls , not a 5ml waste of plastic packaging, I can confidently say that it really works! I have an oily skin that is pretty tough when it comes to acids and peels, and need a more effective option t...

  6. Definitely not for sensitive skins!


    I’m not sure why this is marketed as a gentle exfoliant as it definitely isn’t! Tried this and my skin was red for a few days afterwards and I am used to active skincare. The texture is just too granular and rough plus the smell is just not for me AT ALL. Ended up using this on the body to use it up and it did a good job there.
  7. Good but a little harsh


    This is good and does a great job but it is a bit harsh
  8. Great scrub


    I have been using this product for almost a year now and I love it! Its a great face scrub, yet gentle I use mine every second day! Skin always feels fresh and clean afterwards
  9. bit harsh but good


    this works well and gives me soft skin but it is very harsh so I don't use it too often
  10. Good


    Always makes my pores appear smaller after I use this, but can be a bit drying.
  11. Effective


    I was worried trying this scrub on my skin as I've been prone to irritated and sensitised skin. I was actually surprised and glad with the results. After massaging for less than 30sec, I rinsed off with cold water and my skin wasn't feeling tight dry or irritated, it was feeling and looked clean and fresh. A very slight red after rinsing but went after shortly after.
  12. Perfect scrub


    I use this once a week and before I apply fake tan. I find it really strong so I wouldn’t recommend using too frequently trough it is seriously a really good exfoliator. I have been using this product for the last four years and love it
  13. I am obsessed


    I received this product in a goodie bag and I have been absolutely hooked ever since. I use it on my face a couple times a week and my skin has never been more smooth and clear.
  14. Amazing for the body!


    I use this to remove left over fake tan or just for an all over body scrub it it is by far my favourite! It’s too harsh for my face, but it has really softened the skin on my body, and I already can’t wait to purchase the full size :) it’s also perfect for those who get laser treatments :)
  15. gentle exfoliant


    this is a great exfoliant if you want to mix up from chemical ones! It is gentle but still feels like it helps when m skin is having a break out. My skin is always extra smooth the morning after I use it! Would only recommend using it once a week as it can be a little rough however.
  16. On the fence


    I had acne and thought this product was helping to remove congestion and dead skin, but I have since stopped and am using a glycolic toner instead. The toner shows so much more results and isn’t as harmful. I wouldn’t purchase a scrub again for my skin type
  17. Really good scrub!


    Really nice scrub. I found if I used it everyday I would get dry/cause oil. But as an every other day scrub it is great!
  18. Great


    I love this. It gets rid of dead skin, it is priced well and does what it says it will. I'm in my 40s with somewhat sensitive skin and this is perfect for me.
  19. The best


    Amazing product - Bang for the buck!
    You can feel it working on immediate application to the face and you only need a little bit. Once you rinse it off the skin is instantly smooth and soft and radiant!
    Love it!
  20. Never has my skin felt so soft


    Okay I’m not a huge fan of how this product smells but wow does it work well or what! My skin has never felt softer and I didn’t get black heads like I did when using other exfoliants. 10/10 recommend
  21. Best Scrub


    This face scrub is amazing - my skin has completely transformed since I started incorporating this face scrub into my skincare routine. I would highly recommend this face scrub for anyone and everyone!
  22. Great for exfoliating


    I love this product it cleans and clears up my skin so well and one bottle seems to last me ages!
  23. but harsh


    this is a bit harsh on my skin, I won't use this often
  24. Use for body


    I have sensitive skin so I avoid using this on my face. Instead I use it as a gentle but effective body scrub and it has worked really well for me.
  25. Incredible exfoliant


    Love this product, skinstitute is such a good range for its $! Use this 1-2 times a week on my face and body!! Amazed at how much it has improved my skin, aswell as body breakouts and ingrown hairs! Its a great exfoliant
  26. Too strong


    I’ve been using this product for awhile on my acne prone face but it’s just way too strong for me. I cut down using it for once every two weeks which has helped but now I mainly use on my upper arms to get rid of my little bumps and it works amazing for it.
  27. Exfoliater


    Before trying this product I previously used asap's glycolic acid exfoliating scrub. I feel as though the formulations are quite similar. The one notable difference is the scent which is due to the tea tree oil. This product smooths and preps my skin for the following steps in my skincare routine. Overall, I enjoy this product and would recommend it to those with combination/oily skin types and th...

  28. Good Scrub


    This is a bonus gift. Previously, I did not use exfoliated products a lot as I am sensitive skin. I used this product once every two weeks and it is gentle. I can feel it is cleaning my skin effectively. Just be careful around the eye area.
  29. Amazing for keratosis pilaris


    This scrub is amazing! It has completely changed the skin on my arms from being bumpy, dry and spotty to looking glorious
  30. For your body


    I use this a few days after laser treatment to get rid of dead skin cells holding the last remaining hairs. Works great! I have used it on my face before but I found it a bit harsh.
  31. Swear by this!


    You'll never use an exfoliator as good as this! Really gets rid of all dead skin cells off my face and leaves my skin feeling so soft and fresh!
  32. Good consistency


    This scrub has great consistency, the granules are large and give exactly that, a scrub. Have been pleased using this.
  33. Terrible product.


    This product broke me out after using it for a few weeks - was super harsh on my skin.
  34. Great


    After I started using this, my skin's texture reduced and it felt soft
  35. Will keep buying this product


    I am using this product regularly and I will keep it in my routine. It's not too harsh but you can tell your skin is soft like a baby after using it.
    Good value too.
  36. just okay


    I use this once every week ,it is okay
  37. Your skin will feel AMAZING


    First and foremost, this exfoliator is too abrasive to use on your face; especially if you have sensitive skin like me.

    But as a body exfoliant, this is unbeatable. I usually apply it on dry skin and 'lather' for 30 seconds and then jump in the shower. Trust me, your skin will feel so smooth. I found it was best to build up your tolerance (start with once a week). Also, make sure you...

  38. Perfect Scrub


    Perfect exfoliating, can feel it working on my face. Works a lot better than most that I have tried. I like the smell of it - the tea tree makes it smell fresh and adds a little tingle on my face. A little goes a long way which I love. And an even bigger win, it's ocean friendly!
  39. great


    this is great to use once a week to get rid of some dead skin and my face feels super soft afterwards
  40. Very nice


    A very effective exfoliator, it is very fine in its texture, you need to gentle exfoliate for a minute or so. Skin feels nice and smooth. Good to use around once a week, to refine, re texturise and have smoother skin
  41. Scrub


    This is great for ingrown hairs! really gets off the dead skin for a smoother feel!
  42. I love this product.


    I have been using this product for a few years now and it is so good for my skin.
  43. The best! Hands down


    This exfoliator is one of the best i have ever used! It’s so amazing and it made my skin so smooth.
    I would recommend using hyaluronic acid and other moisturisers after using as it could be a little drying.
  44. Best exfoliator


    I love the texture of this exfoliator, you can feel that it exfoliates quite evenly due to the small sand-like beads. You don't need much, so it lasts a while. I have relatively sensitive skin, and find that using it 2-3 times a week is plenty. Will definitely continue buying this! It is the best I've used.
  45. love it


    I have oily skin, and this helps to keep it under control. I no longer use pore strips on my nose every few days, and it really helps to minimise my pores. It can feel like it runs out quickly because it's quite thick, but this really scrubs my face and leaves it clean and glowy.
  46. Not for my skin


    recieved a sample of this - it's nice but a bit harsh on my combo/dry skin. I use it for a body scrub now and I have seen improvements!

    Nat the Rat

    I have such dry, acne prone skin and this product is a miracle worker! Honestly so bomb! I started using this to exfoliate ingrown hairs on my body (which it literally stops btw!) and then I applied to my ance on face and back and it was amazing, how much it minilaised the pimples! I have had ance from being 14 to into my 20's so to find something that worked so well it amazing! I reccomand using ...

  48. Amazing


    I have mild keratosis pilaris on my upper thighs and buttocks and this works really well right before I shave. It also has helped prevent ingrown hairs. I use it twice a week with an exfoliating mitt.
  49. Deep exfoliator


    I find the exfoliating particles very large. Feels super intense. And quite drying. OK to use occasionally, particularly if you want to clear out blackheads around the nose / give a deep clean after wearing a full face of makeup. But not an everyday scrub. I have also recently moved to a gentler cleanser recommended by my dermatologist and my skin is super soft & blackheads reduced, so now I'm qu...

  50. Helpful for keratosis pilaris


    I mainly bought this scrub to use on my keratosis pilaris on my arms and legs and it has made my skin softer and has slightly faded my spots. I was also surprised that it actually brightened up the darkness on my underarms! I think this would be too abrasive for using it on the face, as it has grainy, sand-like pieces in it. I'm also not the biggest fan of the packaging, as it no longer closes pr...

  51. Good but don't over do it!


    When I first started using this I over did it a bit using it most nights, and it was quite harsh on my acne prone skin. Now I use it a couple of times in the week and really like how it takes away dead skin cells keeping my skin fresh.
  52. Skin as smooth as a baby's bottom


    Was told to purchase this by my beautician, and purchased it off AB cause of the sale. I use it on my my back and face, each using a pea sized amount and scrub as per directions. My skin feels silk smooth afterwards. A little goes a long way. Will buy again
  53. Love this!


    This is such a great product!
    I have hormonal acne prone skin which tends to be on the dry side and I use this every night after I take my make-up off. I just make sure to use a good moisturiser before bed otherwise it does dry my skin out a little. A small amount of product goes a long way and one bottle has lasted me months.
    It has helped so much in reducing breakouts and evening ...

  54. Amazing


    I feel like I've never really used a good scrub before until I tried this! I use probably 3-4 times a week. You only need a small amount and with light circular motion it does a wonderful scrub. It leaves my skin so soft, rids blemishes, can have a hot feeling in my face after use.
    I love it overall and highly recommend for non-sensitive skin.
  55. Too harsh


    This scrub feels nice at the time, however it's way too harsh for my sensitive skin. Every time I have tried to use this it has given me painful, sore bumps. i wish it worked better for me!
  56. Worth it


    Works well
  57. Great value


    This really helped my hormonal pimples clear up. If you need an effective face wash this is your product!
  58. okay


    I received a sample of this and thought it was fine, but not a patch on Dermalogica daily superfoliant. It's fine. but nothing special.
  59. The best of both worlds.


    This is a physical scrub aswell as a chemical exfoliant and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and refined. It is great for controlling any breakouts and clearing congestion. I also use it on my body.
  60. Good but harsh!


    I use this once a week and my skin feels and looks amazing, however I wouldn’t use it more regularly than that as it’s very harsh.
  61. Harsh


    Great scrub but very harsh... I wouldn’t use it more than once a week (if that..) good maybe once a month on my dry skin..
  62. Smooth clear skin


    Amazing as a body scrub to clear bumps on back of arms. Does not appear to be too irritating at all and I have a mildly sensitive skin type generally
  63. Acne be gone


    This little tube of gold works miracles. Whenever I have a pimple pop up, I use this in the shower at night and gently apply to the congested area for no more than 30 secs. Rinse, follow up with a pimple patch and that bad boy is all but a faint red dot in the AM

    *Product Disclosure* - leaving on for more than 30 seconds may cause a chemical burn on certain skin types. Do not let your...

  64. A must-have scrub !


    I’ve been using this Gycolic scrub for almost 2 years and love it ! It works really well with the gentle cleanser and my skin feels so soft after.

  65. Must have for body


    This is a must have to exfoliate the body after laser hair removal treatment! Also use it once a week for the face and its amazing how my skin can get so smooth
  66. bit harsh


    i found this a bit too harsh for me
  67. Love!


    love this scrub! feels really great on my skin. Great daily cleanse not too harsh on my skin!
  68. Best scrub


    I recieved a generous sample of this and it has lasted me such a long time. The scrub is amazing it deeply cleanses my skin and hasn’t caused any irritation. It is suitable for every night use
  69. I want THIS scrub!


    What a great, multi use scrub. My face tolerates use of this about twice a week, up to 3 times a week in summer when I have less dryness. Keeps on top of any breakouts and shine in my T-zone. Sloughs away my top layer of dead skin. Also great on in-growns, backne, chestne, etc., if they choose to rear their ugly heads.
  70. Excellent Exfoliant for body & face acne.


    This exfoliant, when used with the skinstitut gentle cleanser, has become an excellent addition to my skincare routine. The formula does not strip the skin of essential moisture and provides a well-need deep cleanse for acne-prone skin. As I do suffer from the occasional bout of body acne, I found using this product on places such as my chest and back to be extremely useful to tackle target areas ...

  71. The best scrub on the market!


    I love the way this scrub makes my skin feel while using it and after. My face actually feels like a baby's bottom after using it, sooo soft. The only scrub I will use.
  72. Excellent Facial Scrub


    This exfolaiter is my favourite. It is quite strong so would recommend once or twice a week between usual cleansing.
  73. Leaves my skin feeling clean, glowing and soft!


    I use this product 1-3 times a week as my 'deep clean'. I honestly get excited to use it as it always leaves my skin feeling super soft and clean. The grain can be a little rough, so I have to be quite gentle.
    It can be a bit drying and I do need to follow up with a rich moisturiser though. This combination gives me a gorgeous glow when I wake up! I always get complimented on my skin the da...

  74. A really good exfoliator


    A really good exfoliator where you can 'feel' the scrub, but its not harsh on the skin (like walnut pieces etc). A gently tingle, excellent for this who really want to feel it working.
  75. Regular, long time lover!


    I use this scrub religiously, weekly on both my face and body. It is a great exfoliant and you only need a small amount of product.
    It is not too harsh on the skin and does the hard work with ease. Highly recommend!
  76. Great exfoliator, skin feels refreshed


    I've used this exfoliator for years now. Definitely a favourite - the granules feel fantastic and I don't get any reactions to the chemicals. My skin feels much more refreshed whenever I use it.
  77. great


    really good for oily skin, probably not the best for sensitive skin as its rough
  78. Love it!!


    Makes my skin feel so fresh and like a baby's bum! It is slightly rough so not the product if you have super sensitive skin but it gets the job done of removing all the dead skin and flushing out those pores!


    Affordable and works, what more can you ask for? This scrub smoothes and brightens my skin, my skin always feel reborn after using this scrub!
  80. Works well


    I got this in a goodie bag from adore beauty with my order. I use it two three times a week. I love how it leaves my skin after using it. Very tiny particles to message and exfoliate. Now I always buy it when I run out of it.
  81. Great as a body scrub!


    This was a little bit harsh for my face however I have been loving using it up as a body scrub twice a week on my back arms and legs. It makes skin so smooth before a tan also
  82. Favourite Exfoliant!


    I have been using this scrub for over a year and love it. I continue to reorder. A little goes a long way and it really gets into the pores and removes all dirt and whiteheads. I try and use it 2 - 3 times a week depending on what my skin is doing. I also use it on my legs after laser hair removal to ensure no ingrowns. Works a treat. Would definitely recommend.
  83. Best Scrub


    I have repurchased this scrub because I love it so much! It lasts ages as there is so much product and is such great value for money. My skin always feels so much softer after I use this! I have recommended it to so many of my friends with other skin types and they all love.
  84. body


    good scrub for body, it left my face feeling a bit dry and tight though.
  85. Good value


    This cleanser is good and will easily last you a few months!! Doesn’t irritate the skin either
  86. Best product on the shelf


    I use this on my body mostly and face once a week. Leave on for 2-5 mins and you’ll feel like a new born baby. I also used on my dads scalp to remove all his dead dry skin and it all came off! His bald head shines like the moon now
  87. Amazing


    This has such a deep clean effect, can be harsh so don’t rub in too hard or it can be damaging. Highly recommend this
  88. Refreshing


    Leaves my skin feeling well-scrubbed. I use twice a week to do a deep clean, and follow up with a mask, my skin feels so amazing and smooth now.
  89. Doubles as a scrub and mask


    I have mature skin, prone to acne, yet areas that are dehydrated. Once a week I use as a mask, apply, leave on for 15 to 20 mins then add a little water and use as a scrub (using circular motions) Love being able to do 2 beauty treatment together. My teenage daughter does the same once a week and she has beautiful clear skin. This scrub keeps my acne at bay, removes dead skin cells and cleanses p...

    I don't know what I did without this product, it is so damn good. I use it daily as that is what works best for me. A little goes a long way, so it's awesome value for money. Makes my skin feel smooth and helps keep me breakout free
  91. INSTANT smoothing results!


    This product was recommended by my facial therapist, and she did not do me wrong. The results are SHOCKINGLY great; it leaves your skin feeling like a baby's butt every time!!! And you don't feel dry or damaged.

    This is an intensive scrub though so I not recommend to those with sensitive or irritated skin. Be sure to use it only once or twice a week. Because the results I got were so...

    Amazingg for body exfoliation, the perfect scrub :)
  93. Amazing


    This stuff is amazing!
  94. Absolute must have


    I have discovered this scrub about 2 years ago and it's a lifesaver. I only use it once a week as otherwise it's a little harsh on my skin - but this scrub really cleanses out the pores and i wake up the next day with such a glowing skin. I do make sure to moisturise well after using this or put on an overnight hydrating face mask.
  95. It works


    Love this product. Gives a nice exfoliation without scratching or damaging the skin. Only need a small amount and the tube is massive so will last ages. Pleasant smell. Highly recommend. Was told my skin was looking nice after 2 weeks of using this scrub
  96. After Laser exfoliation


    Ever since starting laser hair removal I have used this product to stop ingrown hairs. It is a little harsh at first but after a few scrubs you are used to the feel of the product.
  97. Did nothing for my KP


    Bought this for the sole purpose of treating the KP on my arms. I've used maybe 80% of the tube now and have noticed no difference at all, so sadly my search for an effective KP treatment continues. On the plus side, this didn't irritate my skin and it feels decently nice as a scrub.
  98. Goodbye bumpy skin


    Ive re purchased this over and over. Its just a general good body scrub. Has helped improved my keratosis pilaris.
  99. Clean and clear


    I needed something with Glycolic acid after finishing up my Nip & Fab cleanser. You definitely get your bang for your buck with this one. I do a double cleanse with this one being the second cleanse. Skin hasn't been this clear for ages!
  100. Great scrub!


    Started using this after hearing it talked about on the podcast. Love the texture and am using it as a body scrub. A little goes a long way!
