A good scrubI really like this scrub. It’s gritty and you can really see the difference after you use it. It’s great for removing any dry flaky patches. My skin glows after this scrub. Great price too!
Big bottle!I received a free tube of this and gave it a go after hearing some good things. I used it all and bought another and was surprised at how big the normal size actually is. Brilliant value for money and seems to work well. I replaced my glycolic cleanser with this and only use a gentle cleanser and this combo works better for me. I suffer from hormonal acne on my chin.
Worth a try!
Really worksGot this as a gift with last order and it really leaves my skin smooth and soft without irritating
I LOVE THISThis scrub is so amazing, it smells funny but you can really feel it working when you use it. I've noticed a fairly significant difference since starting to use it last year and this is the second time I've purchased it. It's a huge bottle and goes a long way, it has reduced some congestion on my face and makes it smooth, getting rid of the dead skin cells and brightening my skin. I also use it on my arms with my keratosis pilaris and it reduces the roughness and redness significantly!!
LuckyI was lucky to receive this as a gift with a previous order. Didn't really use it as much until I started to break out and was told to try this and the range. After doing so, my breakout reduced. I look forward to adding more of their products to my skin care routine.
Skin routine essentialThis product is good value for money! A beauty therapist suggested to apply this to dry skin like a mask before hoping in the shower and rinse off after a few min to help with my black heads and it has! I have been using this product for nearly 2 years and I won’t buy another scrub! I have sensitive skin and I don’t feel tight or dry afterwards.
Worth the hype!I received a travel size of this as a gift and it's not something that I would have bought for myself normally as I can have quite sensitive skin on my cheeks. Nonetheless I gave it a go (because I love trying new things!) and I am so glad that I did. It has helped to improve the texture of my skin. I saw results overnight! Absolutely love.
Smooth skinGenerous amount in the tube for the price. My skin is always super smooth after using this.
Great ExfoliatorGreat to clear the skin and gentle for sensitive skin.
Works for sensitive skin
Works well, smells great. It’s mild enough for sensitive skin but still does the job - I use it once or twice a week.
Glycolic scrubI think this is a great glycolic scrub that really helps resurfacing skin, but I personally use it on rough parts on my body as I find the physical + chemical exfoliant combo is a bit strong.
GreatI love this. I only use it 3 times a week, it’s not too harsh but it really removes everything. I use this on my face and on my legs or armpits as an exfoliation too
Don't believe the hype.I have oily skin which needs exfoliating quite a bit.
I bought this due to the overwhelming good reviews. But I'm disappointed.
1. This smells very chemical.
2. Exfoliating beads are very big. Which I feel just rolls around my face without actually doing anything.
I find I get a similar, if not better, result from using a AHA+BHA facewash.
the most gentle exfoliatethis exfoliated works so well and i can tell it is cleansing my skin very well and getting rid of all the dead skin. My skin feels fresh and brand new after every use without being irritated.
GreatThis product comes in a large tube that last forever. It’s a very gentle and helps to gently exfoliation my skin, a deep cleanse. My skin always feels so fresh and smooth after using it.
Good scrubI use this for my body as I get laser hair removal and I was recommended this product. I haven't tried it on my face as I prefer a chemical exfoliant with nothing physical in it. I think it makes somewhat of a difference but I do feel it is quite mild. It has lasted me ages though which is great.
Nice product..I've recently been converted to skinstitut after hearing rave reviews, mainly for this product.
I use this scrub once a week, and like to let it sit on my skin for 5 minutes before scrubbing. I have sensitive skin, so limit the scrubbing as such, but the glycolic acid and slight physical granules provide a nice exfoliation without upsetting my skin.
I've got my entire family on to this now and will definitely repurchase.
Harsh for sensitive skinI found the physical and chemical exfoliation here to be a bit harsh on sensitive skin. Definitely dried my skin out. But very good as a once a week treatment for acne that's active.
Must Have!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
Best scrub out there!I've used this scrub for about a year now and couldn't recommend it more! I've got scarring, redness and occasional acne so my skin is quite sensitive and this doesn't irritate my skin. My skin feels clean, refreshed and shiny!
Love this!I have tried many many skin care products, but Skinstitut is the one I will be sticking too! I have completely switched over to the Skinstitut products since the birth of my son after having brackouts on my chin. This scrub leaves my skin feeling so smooth and fresh, and only a small amount is needed, so it lasts! Also it does not feel like your skin has that 'tight' feeling after use, which other brands have left me feeling before.
AmazingLeaves my skin feeling soft and not dry at all. Its not fragranced so there smell isn't that great but it exfoliates so well and doesn't feel too rough. My skin is quite tough so i need a rough exfoliater to feel like its doing anything but this scrub is soft and makes me feel like its scrubbing away dead skin cells.
Does the job!I do like this scrub, it definitely exfoliates and gets rid of dead/dry skin. However i feel like you need to be careful with this product as it does feel a bit grainy and can hurt if you apply it on the face with pressure. Overall I still like this product
Need this in your repertoireSuch a gentle and affordable exfoliator. Leaves your skin feeling new, removing make up and dead skin, ready to soak up your serums!
Love the feeling of glowing, clean skinLove this product. A huge volume of product in a large tube for many many uses. It’s a very gritty paste that can achieve a gentle light exfoliation or with more pressure applied, a deep cleanse. My skin always fresh and smooth after use.
Add cleanserSecond time purchasing. Loved the first time but did find it a bit harsh on my skin. Whilst having a facial, a clinician recommended that I add my gentle cleanser in with the scrub to soften it. Love it! Easier to use and gentler. Great for unclogging pores
BestSo good! Love this product.
Baby skin again!!I had heard lots of good reviews on this product so I decided to try it for myself! It did not disappointment!! My skin felt so smooth and soft afterwards literally like baby skin!! It unclogged my pores and my skin looks clearer overall.
Fantastic ScrubI love all Skinstitut products, am a faithful user for over 4 years, I use this scrub once or twice a week to buff, refine and give my skin a fresh healthy glow. Don't over do it though, it is powerful stuff, once or twice a week is more than enough to see results.
The bestGreat for the price and alternative to dermalogica. I actually think I like this scrub a little more then my dermalogica one. Makes my ski. Feel fresh and clean without being too dry. Really great balance
My always go to scrubGot recommended to use this by my skin laser lady. Definitely help with my hair ingrown issue and skin feel so soft and smooth after use. Good sale price on adore beauty.
Good scrubThis scrub is good for after cleansing it’s mild and good for sensitive skin
Improved FormulaI have been using this along with the Skinstitut Lactic Cleanser for nearly 3 years now. I have always had acne prone/ oily t-zone with dry cheeks. I find it cleanses everything from my skin without leaving it too dry. I use it prior to shaving and I find it helps me get a much smoother shave. Excellent consistency aswell.
Have never experienced an exfoliant like it.This scrub isn't harsh but really buffs the skin. It smells gorgeous, and I feel BABY smooth after using it. I honestly get excited to use it.
Great after laserI was recommended this after getting laser treatment to help stop ingrown hairs, and while the smell isn't exactly pleasant, this is definitely very effective! I love this as a body scrub for targeted areas that are prone to ingrown hairs or KP, as it's not overly rough but still super effective.
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!
