Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14% by Skinstitut


Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14% is a deep and invigorating cleanser, formulated for use on the face and body. Enriched with Glycolic Acid, Jojoba Beads, and Tea Tree Oil, this exfoliating cleanser clears and brightens the complexion. Glycolic Scrub 14% also treats acne, congestion, and pigmentation concerns.


Key benefits of Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14%

  • Removes impurities and treats congestion for clear pores
  • Refines skin texture for softer skin
  • prevents blemishes, acne and blackheads
  • promotes healthy cell renewal for plumper skin

Glycolic Acid provides effective chemical exfoliation, especially when combined with biodegradable Jojoba Beads to unclog pores. This effective scrub removes oil and promotes healthy skin cells to resurface for a smoother, more refined complexion. Tea Tree Oil has long been used for its antibacterial and soothing properties, which further assist in the treatment and prevention of blemishes and blackheads.

Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14% targets dark spots, sun damage, and other pigmentation abnormalities without lightening these problem areas. Instead, the Alpha-hydroxy Acids present in this scrub promote cell turnover to reveal a rejuvenated and more even complexion. This action makes Glycolic Scrub 14% a great addition to any anti-ageing skincare routine.

This facial scrub formulation repairs and strengthens impaired skin, refreshes and rebalances problematic skin, and is a great treatment product for ingrown hairs. A non-dehydrating product, this scrub is great for acne-prone, congested skin, and oiler skin types.

Sensitive, delicate, or irritation-prone skin types are advised to use an effective but more gentle exfoliating product, Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser, to treat congestion and even skin tone.

How to use Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14%:

  • Cleanse with your favourite Skinstitut cleanser.
  • Squeeze a pea-sized amount of scrub onto wet hands.
  • Lather over face using circular motions, avoiding eyes.
  • Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
  • Follow with your favourite serum or moisturiser.

This products works great with Skinstitut Gentle Cleanser to remove all traces of oil and makeup prior to exfoliation. Follow with Skinstitut Moisture Defence to keep skin hydrated and smooth without congesting pores.

Very gentle - 25-05-2018 by

I was expecting a much more rough scrub, but other than that I am very happy with this product! I like to use this as an all over scrub. Defiantly a fave!
One thing is I like to keep this in the shower, it's hard to get it all off in the sink.

Smooth skin! - 24-05-2018 by

It's a big tube and you only need a tiny amount. I can really feel it working to exfoliate and my skin feels so smooth and my pores are looking better.

Great Scrub - 20-05-2018 by

Such a refreshing product to use once or twice a week works well in reducing acne.

I expected more from this - 19-05-2018 by

The beads are too gentle, I have a hard time getting dry skin off with this. It's nice otherwise if your looking for a gentle exfoliatent

a really good scrub - 19-05-2018 by

This scrub is amazing! i use it on my face and my problem areas on my body (back and chest) I also dap a bit on my break outs before i sleep.

you don't need to use a lot at once, it will last a very long time... until the boyfriend starts using it too.

One of the best scrub ever - 18-05-2018 by

I've bought this products many times and can't live without. It's not drying and as soon as it's used, I can feel my skin glows and smooth without dryness. Definitely recommend this for those with oily skin like mine.

Life saver - 17-05-2018 by

This scrub is amazing. I recommend it to everyone and my whole family uses it. With such a large tube they can! We all have oily skin and can suffer from acne without proper skin care and this is the only product we’ve tried that gets rid of it! If you break out a little when you first start its just your top layers being removed and allowing congestion to come to the surface. Persist with it and you will have the skin of a four year old! I cant stress how much i love this stuff, about to buy it again right now because we havent had it for a few months and its obvious. Blackheads, rough texture, even scarring and pigmentation on my 38 year old face fade away. Get it girls and boys!

Fabulous - 17-05-2018 by

This scrub is the only scrub I feel works sufficiently. If you are after something that is a little stronger then this is your go to. You can feel the glycolic acid working and the granules can be rubbed where needed for a more intensive scrub. I have re-purchased multiple times and will continue to however this product does last a long time.

Great for Acne Prone Skin - 16-05-2018 by

This Scrub helped to clear up my acne, it drys out pimples over night. & can also be used as a mask to draw out pimples. Definitively recommend this. Although may be to harsh for some sensitive skin

Best Exfoliator - 16-05-2018 by

This is by far the best exfoliator I have used, I like that it combines both chemical and physical exfoliation. I have very dehydrated skin and I use this in the shower once a week and it gives me the most baby soft skin. It is not drying and I will definitely repurchase this.

All round winner - 09-05-2018 by

I love it! I usually buy a separate body scrub but I think I will just be using this for my face and body from now on. Has just the right texture for me but I don't use it every day. Have already re-purchased!

Really Really works - 09-05-2018 by

This is a great all rounder scrub.. seems suitable enough for my sensitive skin, mazing for black heads and general congestion. definitely feel like your scrubbing away the dead grimey layer from the day. I also use this scrub on my legs and bum for ingrowns and after laser hair removal. One of my all time favourites.. I've been buying for 3 years now.

free sample i'd buy again - 08-05-2018 by

received this as a sample with purchase. took me a little while to get the hang of how it works but now i'm loving it! very abrasive but feels like it's actually doing something and leaves skin feeling smooth

100% - 08-05-2018 by

I love this scrub!
Has helped clear up my congestion around jawline.
Doesn’t sting my sensitive skin.

Good but not great - 08-05-2018 by

I purchased this a few weeks ago and have been using it 2-3/week.
I have been using it in combination with the lactic acid cleanser which I think together have started to improve the brightness of my skin.

I have the occasional pimple and have noticed if I use this scrub when I first see the pimple it doesn't hang around to too long.

I haven't noticed dramatic changes in my skin- but for the price and the subtle changes I would most likely purchase again

One of the best - 08-05-2018 by

Large pores - blotchy skin - combination skin
I regularly exfoliate and i have found certain products seem to loose their effectiveness after a few months. Ive been using this for a few months and it still works really well. Skin feels smooth, few breakouts. As i prefer deep exfoliants that make me feel like I'm releasing a fresh layer of skin when i use them, which is the one and only thing this product could benefit from - more beady.
Apart from that the consistency is good, smells refreshing and does a good job

100% would recommend - 08-05-2018 by

I have suffered from textured skin with monthly breakouts in my adult life for over 10 years now.
I generally have oily skin, and struggle to find makeup that will stay on my skin without breaking up.

ALL of that has changed now. From the first moment I used it, I knew I was going to love it.
You can feel the scrub working, and actually cleaning your pores. As soon as your skin is dry you can feel an immediate difference in the softness.
The thing I’m most happiest about is my makeup application. No oil, no breakups. Its been incredible.
Would 100% recommend to ANYONE with any similar skin concerns.

10/10 - 07-05-2018 by

This scrub is really good, love using it on my face. Makes my skin so soft and smooth.

Try it - 07-05-2018 by

Amazing product. Leaves your skin feeling so good. This bottle will last a long time!

Tried a sample but not sure - 29-04-2018 by

I had a sample of this and it was quite large so it lasted me a few uses. I like the feeling of it but coincidentally I broke out after each use so I don't know if it was this or a coincidence? So worth a try.

Excellent scrub - 29-04-2018 by

This scrub already has a tonne of 5-star reviews, but I thought I would add mine to the pile!

This is an excellent, effective scrub that delivers results without irritating the skin (however, I probably wouldn't use an abrasive scrub on sensitive or inflamed skin in any case).

It is also value for money! Highly recommended.

Effective - 29-04-2018 by

I use this scrub 3 x a week, and find it clears up any congestion building in my skin. I used to have combination skin, but have found since using the Skinstitut range that my my skin is much more even.

Great Scrub - 29-04-2018 by

I have mainly oily skin and sometimes sensitive cheeks. This scrub does not irritate my skin, but, provides a nice fresh feeling and helps to keep my blemish prone skin at bay. It is my favourite scrub I have used.

Super fine scrub! - 18-04-2018 by

I love this scrub!
The particles are so tiny, it really gets into your skin and does it's job, without irritating or scratching!
I use it 1-2 times a week, and us the glycolic cleanser 12% everyday.

Using these products have seriously cleared my skin, my face is so clean and smooth and my blackheads are disappearing and hormonal acne is gone!

Skinstitut has changed my life and the way I view chemical products - I used to only use natural skin care like Sukin (which is an awesome brand) but my skin just needed a little extra help, I will honestly never go back!

closest thing to a microdermabrasion in a bottle ! - 18-04-2018 by

i love this exfoliant, super fine particles really help clear my pores. a little goes a long way.

Very fine particles, great scrub - 17-04-2018 by

This scrub feels really good on my skin. It's quite fine but not too abrasive, so it doesn't irritate my skin at all. I use this all over my face, and sometimes on any bumps on my legs or armpits from shaving, or if I have any acne on my body. It always feels like it does a good job and leaves my skin feeling smooth afterward.

Great exfoliater - 17-04-2018 by

Great product, use twice a week to exfoliate, large bottle lasts forever as you only need a small amount, it does have a strong tea tree smell, so if your overly sensitive to tea tree/ strong scents I'd probably pass

Reduced pore size! - 16-04-2018 by

So I received 2 samples of this and saw a noticeable result after use. I have combination skin with large pores around my nose area. This tingled a bit so I felt it working, and straight after rinse off noticed my pores looked smaller! Definitely buying the larger bottle and will give the cleanser a go too!

Excellent product - 16-04-2018 by

This mask is light weight - i put it on for a couple of hours before bed and the next day my skin is soft and bright. Does not make skin feel tight or stripped. I'm keen to see how this product works over time.

11/10 this stuff is amazing - 16-04-2018 by

I have been buying since receiving a free sample from adore beauty, I've not had one pimple since!!

Amazing!! - 12-04-2018 by

This is such a great scrub! Cleans your skin so well without leaving it feel dry. Would highly recommend.

great to use on break outs - 12-04-2018 by

i use this when i have break outs (pimples) it helps to clear them up so much faster. my daughter also uses this. highly recommend this product

The Best Scrub I Have Used! - 12-04-2018 by

This scrub is amazing, i have extremely oily skin with large pores and can i just say WOW!
My skin never feels as clean as it does after using this scrub. My oil is reduced with smaller pores. I have little to no acne when using this.

The best scrub there is please do not change the formula :) - 12-04-2018 by

I absolutely love this scrub!!!
I have oily/combination congested skin and it clears it up in no time! Must have for me now.

Great product - 12-04-2018 by

I have been using the scurb for a few weeks now and am loving it. I have struggled with adult acne mostly hormonal and find this is helping with the breakouts. They dont seem to last as long before clearing up. I have almost the whole range and I am loving it all. If you had to choose this would be the first one to purchase for me.

Thorough clean... - 12-04-2018 by

I used this for the first time last night.
Definitely gives a deep clean without over stripping the skin (mine is quite sensitive and I didn't have a negative reaction).
This morning all the little bumps which have been sitting under my skin for a while had come to the surface and were removed easily with an oil cleanser and muslin cloth.
Great to use a few times a week for problem skin, I wouldn't use it every night though or it might be aggravating.

The Perfect Scrub - 11-04-2018 by

I have dry, hormonal acne prone skin and after a few weeks of travelling and long haul flights, this was bliss to come home to. This was a million times better than any scrubs I have used before and my skin felt beautiful afterwards. The only downside to it is the acne I did have stung a bit and dried it all up so it was a bit ugly the next morning, but it did the trick.
Due to my acne, I have only been using this every few days so it doesn't aggravate it. The little milia acne I do have has definitely decreased and I can't wait to keep using this!

Love this! - 11-04-2018 by

I originally got this when it was recommended to me for my laser hair removal. I tried it on my face as I can get very congested skin and I noticed a difference almost over night. I leave it on for about 5 minutes to really let it do it’s thing and my skin has never looked better.

Great - 03-04-2018 by

I love this product - I use the scrub every night

It started with a sample.... LOVE this scrub! - 29-03-2018 by

It is the best scrub out there in my opinion! It really cleans, I love the slight tingle and my skin has never looked better - so so clean and clear after this scrub. I use 2 to 3 times a week if I have congestion and it really clears it up, my Go To Brand for skincare now. Loved it so much bought the big size and a back up!

AH-MAZING - 29-03-2018 by

I initially received a sample of this and was so sceptical to try it out as I had never used a skinstitut product before. Needless to say, I fell in love from the first use. I have combination skin that can feel very congested from time to time and the scrub is a perfect pick me up for my skin. It leaves my face feeling super clean and soft and when i use it at night, I notice a certain glow to my face the next morning. I have never been as happy with any other scrub. It is intense so use with caution, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Excellent Scrub! - 27-03-2018 by

I have sensitive skin and have previously had bad reactions to other scrubs. I love this scrub because it works and doesn't leave me feeling irritated at all.

I really like using it after shaving my legs as it helps them feel lovely and smooth afterwards.

Great for pretty much everywhere - 26-03-2018 by

I was first introduced to the product as a way to exfoliate my legs after laser. I put off using it, thinking the strong concentration of acid would burn. This has changed -I love using it to pretty much exfoliate all parts of my body as it leaves the skin extremely smooth and soft. I also use it on my face, however only once a week or once a fortnight. It is an extremely intense exfoliant and would recommend for those with sensitive skin to test it out first before using it full time.

Silky smooth skin - 22-03-2018 by

Was slightly sceptical due to the price at my local laser clinics, but this scrub does wonders, especially since Adore always have a great deal on it. I have oily to dry skin and I use this scrub once a week religiously. Can take a little bit getting used to but has become a vital part of my skincare routine.

Clears up congested skin very welll!! - 22-03-2018 by

The scub is amaxing, and i don't remember how many times i have re-purchased it to be honest :))
Conjected combination skin.. and it clears up really well!! i even use it 3 times a week and it's not drying my skin out, so yes. Amazing!

This scrub saved my skin - 19-03-2018 by

I was feeling hopeless with my skin. I have accumulated closed comedones /non inflammatory acne over the last year and have been struggling to get rid of them. Every night for a week I would have a shower, steam my face, apply the scrub, wash it off, wash face with freezing water, tone and moisturizer, After doing this for a week the texture of my skin has improved so much. The noninflammed acne has disappeared and my skin is smoother. I 100% recommend this scrub . Its super affordable and works well

Love it, my skin is so smooth after using - 19-03-2018 by

I have been using the 12% cleanser for a while and moved up to the 14% and it has made my skin so smooth. I had a lot of roughness over my nose and if I used this my skin around my nose feels so smooth. Its rough texture really gets into the skin and my face just looks so much brigther after

SOOOO GOOD! - 19-03-2018 by

I've been using this product on my combination (dry/pimple prone) skin for almost a month now and my skins texture has changed already. I have less redness, my skin is softer and more even. My skin feels so fresh and clean after using this product, i use it as directed every two days in conjunction with Skinstitut Retinol. Highly recommended duo!

Amazing!!!! - 06-03-2018 by

I love this scrub!!!! It works really well for unblocking pores and leaves my skin feeling smooth, clean and fresh. I do have reactive skin at times but this doesnt cause me any problems.
The price is fantastic too as the bottle is huge and you only need a pea sized amount

Glycolic Scrib - 06-03-2018 by

Fantastic product!
I am using it about twice a week and there has been a noticeable difference in the smoothness and overall texture of my skin.
I love it and would thoroughly recommend it!

Oh so soft! - 05-03-2018 by

I adore this product! I use it 2 to 3 times a week for a good overall clean especially when i think I’m looking yuk or that time of the month when hormones are going haywire! It’s sort of spring cleaning your face every few days. My skin feels so soft & clean afterwards. I always look forward to using this when I have to.

Incredible Glow - 25-02-2018 by

After using this product for the first time my skin felt amazingly clean, after multiple weeks of use I am very satisfied with the products effectiveness!

Scrub a dub dub - 21-02-2018 by

It's the real deal & it will get you super clean & scrubbed but in a good way. I don't usually use mechanical exfoliants as I do prefer chemical. This has the double whammy! Beads and 14% Glycolic - holy moly. My skin can withstand high % of acid concentrate as I've been using them for years yet I found Skinstitut was as much gentle as effective. This product is now a staple in my routine when I feel like a shower exfoliation as opposed to my regular post shower chemical exfoliation on face & neck. This one I've also been using around the back of my neck, shoulders & chest.

One of the best I have used - 21-02-2018 by

I struggled with bad adult acne for years after a lot of hormone changes with pregnancies and losses. I could never find anything to help me even reduce the acne by the slightest until I came across this product. The difference in just 6 months of using this product was insane! I had large cyst like pimples all under my jawline and my cheeks covered in whiteheads. I now rarely even get one pimple even when its the time of the month. I use this along with the cleanser and alternate every few days. I always reorder this product before it runs to low.

The tube also lasts a very long time as you only need a small amount of product.

Clears up congestion - 21-02-2018 by

I struggle with congestion very badly and this product clears it up so quickly and keeps it away! It is the only product that has ever given instant results and kept the congestion away!

I really like this - 20-02-2018 by

but I prefer the enzyme product just because in my mid 40's I don't love a grainy scrub. In saying that my skin feels smooth and soft after using this and it doesnt irritate at all.

Lovely scrub - 19-02-2018 by

Lovely scrub - Really gives you that clean feeling. It is great at smoothing the skin. I have noticed less large blackheads on my nose and chin since using it. It does however make my eyes sting and water (i dont use anywhere near my eyes but it might be the smell or something? just using it on my nose makes my eyes go nuts!)

Great physical exfoliant - 19-02-2018 by

This definitely does the job, however I cannot use it on my face very often as it makes me breakout, it also made my sister breakout, so I use it on my body.
It's been amazing on my legs!

Best scrub ever! - 19-02-2018 by

I’ve tried so many different scrubs and never has one been this effective at exfoliating, cleaning and invigorating my skin. I use it both on my face and body once or twice a week to really polish and clear my skin and this scrub makes my skin glow. I have dry to normal skin that does not tolerate anything harsh. I have been using this for 3 months now with no irritations. Great price and value, I highly recommend this!

Cannot Fault this product - 25-01-2018 by

I have combination skin and wear makeup resulting in congested pores. As such I like my exfoliatorntk be one that really cleanses and gets into the Piotr. Unfortunately this can result in an abrasive experience. However, this glycolic scrub does not do that! I am given a thorough clean and exfoliation without having harsh red marks left from the experience. My skin is left smooth and decongested. After going between exfoliates, I can assuredly day that this is my go-to and will forever have a place in my bathroom cupboard.

Game changer - 23-01-2018 by

I have tried so many other cleansers which seem to strip my skin of my natural oils but this one works on such a deep level without making you feel like you've lost layers of skin! I use it every 3 days and immediately after I feel like my makeup applies so much smoother. You only need a tiny bit (pea size) so it lasts forever

Best exfoliator ever!! - 23-01-2018 by

I cannot fault this product!
I have sensitive and combination skin prone to acne and congestion around the jaw area.
I love that you gan feel the grit/grain of the exfoliator.
It really feels like it is scrubbing away the dead skin.
It leaves my face feeling smooth and clean but not tight like some exfoliator a can do.
I love it!

Gentle and effective exfoliator - 18-01-2018 by

This exfoliator is really nice to use on my dry and sensitive skin. Before trying this I tended to avoid exfoliators as they would leave my skin red or were too harsh. This one is perfect as it is gritty but gentle enough not to inflame my skin.

Great exfoliator - 09-01-2018 by

This is gentle on the skin but still exfoliates well enough to leave skin smooth and soft. I bought it for my husband to use as well and he loves it. Will definitely repurchase.

A great Australian product - 08-01-2018 by

Love this. Great for use both on face and body. Don't require a harsh application - gently massage with water does the trick. I would say the smell of this product is not for everyone but its not a deal breaker in my book. Will re-purchase for sure.

He'll yes I would recommend this to a friend - 08-01-2018 by

This product is so good!!!
Works so well with my acne and oily skin which gets quite sensitive. The smell is a bit strange but works a treat! Once a week along with my alpha products .
Thanks adore beauty!

A scrub like no other - 28-12-2017 by

I love gylcolic acid and the fact that its in a scrub is amazing. You face will feel amazing after it and it cleans out your skin and all my pores and all clear and my face feels like silk after it. I use it on my body as well some times. Absolutely love it

great exfoliator - 27-12-2017 by

I use this once a week on my face and it has really improved my congestion/blackheads. I get a little bit of acne on my decolletage as well so I use it there too. You can feel the beads really exfoliate and soften your skin

Nice but not what I expected - 14-12-2017 by

I was hoping this would be a bit more of a chemical exfoliant than a physical scrub. It's very rough and i don't get any sting or tingle from the glycolic so it kind of feels like any other scrub. Nice to use a couple of times a week. I prefer the Origins Modern Friction scrub as it has smaller particles but this is less expensive which is nice. All in all a good scrub for the price point but nothing special.

Won't use anything else! - 14-12-2017 by

This is a must have for people with congested skin. I have been using it for about a year now and would not use anything else. Definitely would not recommend using it more than once/twice a week. I became reliant on it when I had bad skin and used it every day. It made my skin worse, I broke out all the time, pores were larger and made my skin peel. After having a consultation and learning the correct way to use it with other skinstitut products I love it! Twice a week max, my skin is softer, pores are smaller, blackheads are still there but definitely less visible and I have barely had a pimple in 5 months! Could not recommend this brand more!

Excellent - 04-12-2017 by

This is just what my skin needed. I saw results from first use. My skin was clearer looks fresher. I use it twice a week and the results are lasting. It is great value and will last for a while. Will definitely repurchase this item when I run out

Best exfoliant - 30-11-2017 by

I have been using this scrub for almost 3 years now. Everytime I have tried another brand it's gone in the trash, nothing beats this formula. Great for congestion, just don't overdo it. I use it 2-3 times a week and it keeps the little bumps around the edge of my face away!

Not too bad - 27-11-2017 by

I purchased this because of the great reviews I'd seen and to help combat my problematic skin. On first use, I did not like it all. However, I didn't give up on it. I tried it a number of times to no good use. That was until Summer approached and my skin became a lot oilier. This completely softened my coarse skin and the texture was more refined after use. Not something I would use everyday, but maybe two times a month.

Best! - 22-11-2017 by

This stuff is amazing, I had major congestion around my chin, pimples and milla. Using this scrub in combination with gentle cleanser and other skinstitut products - my skin has never felt or looked so good - some days I don't even need makeup! I also use it for ingrown hairs and if my skin is irritated after shaving - it really is amazing and you get a lot of it for the price!

Love it! - 13-11-2017 by

Personally I found this a bit too intense to use on my face but works absolutely wonders on arms, elbows, knees anywhere that needs a bit of extra exfoliation! You only need a tiny amount of product for quite a large area, amazing product!

Fresh, unblocked pores - 13-11-2017 by

My skin is sensitive but I need a product to really get deep into my pores to clean them out. I have trouble with dark congestion/ blackheads on my nose particularly. This scrub has helped immensely and stopped my squeezing habit! Used every second day, my skin is renewed, soft and clear. My super sensitive skin hasn't reacted, my pores are clear and smaller, so this is my new go to exfoliant.

5 stars - 24-10-2017 by

Great scrub skin feel clean and fresh and can visibly see a difference in a week. Takes a bit to get used to and cannot use it every day as its harsh, but am loving using it and fell like its really removing any dead unwanted skin. Having less breakouts and feel like this is cleansing my pores from deep down for once and for all. Loving it so far and would definitely recommend!

Best scrub EVER! - 24-10-2017 by

Have been looking for the perfect scrub for not joke 9 years! I have tried every brand under the sun! After using this scrub at my friends house, I just knew i had to get it myself. I'd FINALLY found the scrub I've been looking for! My number 1 issue I have with my skin is my blackheads. My nose and chin are covered in them. Now although using this scrub along with a cleanser hasn't taken away these blackheads, they have dramatically minimised the size of my pores and reduced how much they standout! I didn't expect it to work so well! I believe that with continued use, and frequent dermatologist visits to help remove my blackheads manually, that this scrub will eventually take away all my blackheads! Seriously life changer!

Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub - just right! - 24-10-2017 by

I brought this home for my partner to try, because he often complains that shaving seems to give him breakouts - I figured it was probably ingrowns, so he needed something to buff away dead skin cells and increase cell turnover.

Well, he loves this, and at this price, I couldn't be happier - finally he'll stop using my more expensive products! Seems to last for ages too.

This review doesn't stop there though. I tried this, because I only tried this once and thought it wasn't for my skin type (normal-combination, but sensitive). Actually, this works really well - as long as I don't use it where I tend to be most sensitive!

Usually when I go to see skin specialists they comment that I tend to have less fresh skin around the edges of my face - forehead and jawline. So I've been using this there, and it's been very effective.

Surprising new fav!

My new favourite scrub - 16-10-2017 by

My skin has been breaking out and the texture has been bumpy lately. This scrub is gentle enough to use every night but seems to be making my skin much smoother quite quickly. I'm loving the feel of my skin when I get out of the shower. I'm also using the lactic cleanser, even blend serum and oily skin moisturiser, which seems to be a winning combination. The value for money on this product is excellent as well, especially if you're only using it every second or third night. I would definitely recommend it to others with hormonal breakouts.

My favourite scrub! - 16-10-2017 by

This is my favourite exfoliator in the world! I use it after shaving to prevent ingrown hairs as well as getting rid of dead skin. It's amazing. Your skin feels so smooth and soft afterwards. It is quite rough though so I wouldn't recommend using it on your face.

Great for body exfoliation - 02-10-2017 by

I initially bought this long ago to use on my face for oily acne prone uneven skin, however it was too abrasive for my skin. When I applied it to my face it stung and irritated my skin. I had this product sitting in my cupboard for months and months, and decided to use it on my legs after hair removal to prevent ingrowns/bumps just so that I don’t waste product. I think it does a better job for body exfoliation rather than the face because it is too harsh. Nonetheless I love using it on my legs the day after epilating as it brightens, prevents ingrown and deeply cleanses them.

Amazing for cleaning out congestion in nose pores! - 27-09-2017 by

I have dealt with congested skin for years and years, tried tens if not hundreds of products to clear my skin up. The Skinstitut Glycolic range is the best I have tried especially for the price point. You get alot of product and only need a small amount! I recommend this range to everyone I know.

Best exfoliater ever - 25-09-2017 by

I have tried so many different exfoliators and I use glycolic acids in a lot of my skincare so I thought I'd try this. I have used it twice already and see a difference and it cleared everything out of my skin (congestion) and usually after exfoliating my skin it feels very dry, not with this my skin feels smooth. I then go in straight away with my skin acids or my Skinstitut Retinol and it doesn’t irriatate my skin.

Love this Product! - 12-09-2017 by

This product leaves my skin so soft and smooth and acne free, Love it!

Perfect for oily skin and having pimples - 12-09-2017 by

I never tried a scrub thats not make your skin dry .. I love these product ..I really love this .. as I'm prone of hormonal acne I use this every night and my skin really soft and fresh after I use it

AMAZING! - 12-09-2017 by

Amazing product, I love using this scrub 2-3 times a week and it really helps with breakouts and reducing pores! Will definitely be buying again!

One of the best scrubs I have used! - 12-09-2017 by

I have recently purchased this product for my husband who is a 'Tradie' whom often comes home covered in dirt from head to toe. Rarely does he comment on the washes and scrubs he uses, however this product is a now a permanent part of his routine. Having used this product every second day since purchased, he has said his skin feels much smoother and his pores are noticeably cleaner. So there you have it... a product effective for both men and women which has converted a no fuss brand man into a Skinstitut fan!

Gentle yet effective - 27-07-2017 by

Skinstitut have done it again. I bought the 14% because I suffer from hormonal acne and I have congested skin due to regular exercise (gross sweat). I've found that a pea sized amount or maybe a tad more is enough to scrub my face, neck and chest. It doesn't strip the skin of oil to the point of irritation (oil doesn't overproduce) but it gives a good deep clean. I use one night on two nights off. My tip is to let the scrub sit on your skin for about a minute after scrubbing then rinse well. My acne is significantly reduced after using this.

100% Worth The Hype - 19-07-2017 by

Feels different to other scrubs and physical exfoliants I've used before, and is definitely more gentle and less stripping. The beads are very fine and still work effectively while remaining soft on the skin.

Works really nicely in oily T-zones when feeling congested and love the way my face feels and pores look after use. Combine it with a pore-strip afterwards for deeper exfoliation and removal of blackheads and your nose will feel super soft.

Best exfoliant I've ever used! - 15-07-2017 by

This has totally got my problem skin under control. I now use it twice daily and swear by it! Really great value for the price too.

This product is amazing!! - 06-07-2017 by

I suffer from really congested pores around my nose, so I use an exfoliating scrub several times a week. The scrubs I used to use (and I've tried them all!) claim to be for sensitive skin and without harmful ingredients yet they leave my skin unbelievably dry, flaky and tight-feeling every time, plus I never see any change in the congested pores.

I tried Skinstitute Glycolic Scrub 14% for two reasons the number of positive reviews and the trusted reputation of Adore Beauty but WOW what an improvement after the first use! I'd say 99%+ of the pore congestion is gone. After using this product I applied some moisturiser and was shocked at how it just glided onto my skin. My skin feels fantastic and is actually clean without being stripped.

The product itself doesn't seem to have any scent, which is great because I used it right before bed and can't handle strong fragrances at night, I often have to take a shower to wash them off. The exfoliating beads (is that what you call them?) are about the size of grains of sand and give just enough scratch if you know what I mean. Of course, you could scrub lighter or harder according to personal choice. I found it the exfoliation to be just right.

Here's a tip: I used a little too much so I rubbed the extra on my hands - now they're baby smooth too!

Overall I'd rate this a 9.5/10 - it only loses half a point due to the packaging. It comes in a tube (like most exfoliating scrubs) and I expect when it gets to the end it will be difficult to get the last bit out. If it were in a pump type bottle it would definitely be a 10/10 product for me. If anyone reading this review is still unsure about buying this product...Don't be, it deserves the rave reviews! I'm definitely a convert!

Love, Love, LOVE - 30-06-2017 by

This product is amazing ! From the first time I used it I loved it! My skin is so soft and glowing after using it. Such an amazing product. Highly recommend!

Love this product - 18-06-2017 by

Love this product! The product is strong and you only need to use it 2-3 times a week at the most. My face is sensitive and copes with this product easily. Love the feel of the scrub, rough but not too rough.

The best scrub !! - 08-03-2017 by

Received this scrub with the glycolic cleanser and retinol yesterday and after first time use i can literally feel the difference with my skin. The scrub is soo goood i highly recommend this scrub to anyone to get it. If you have dull and rough/pigmented skin, Adding this product to your regime will do wonders to your skin, I promise! It is my favorite brand atm Thankss Skin institut :)

Good value for the quality - 29-01-2017 by

As I've found with all skinstitut products they are great value. They are big sizes and adore beauty always has them at a great price. This scrub is really great, I use it every second day and my skin has become a lot smoother.

Skin saver! - 22-12-2016 by

I hardly ever review products unless I'm super impressed! This cleaner has actually transformed me skin. I suffer from adult acne. My skin had started to go back to its old way with breakouts everywhere. I decided to give this a go before I went back to the dermatologist and omg I'm so glad I did! I had to use it nightly for about a month before my skin totally settled down but now I can get away without layers of makeup to hide my pimples as I have none! My boyfriend is shocked at the results as well :)

Long story short if you are thinking of buying this pleassssse take the plunge! You won't regret it

Best product for a scrub! - 20-11-2016 by

I use it once a week and it's great!
Get it!

Great stuff - 25-10-2016 by

    • Q: I have acne scars on my upper back and bottom (unfortanetly) from 5-6 years ago. The scars aren't protruding, there just dark brown spots that really look disgusting, will this glycolic scrub work for it?
    • A: I would steer away from a glycolic scrub on acne-prone skin. It may irritate the scars, too.
      I would instead suggest a brightening product, like Ultraceuticals Even Skin Tone Serum or the Dermalogica Power Bright range.

    • Q: How often should you be using this product?
    • A: Hi Nipune,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      The Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14% is great to use once or twice a week. The glycolic in this product is an active and effective ingredient, designed to assist in the removal of the dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface. Which, unfortunately, this process does start to slow down as we get older. This scrub will leave your skin feeling fresh and squeaky clean, great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles and congestion. I'd avoid using this product more than twice a week. As this can cause your skin to become quite dry and flaky.

    • Q: Does this product help with stretch marks and scarring (from an operation) on the body? Thanks
    • A: Hi there,

      Thank you for your product question!

      The Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14% is perfect for blemishes and congested skin, I would suggest a product that isn't as harsh- something to use after showering. I have two suggestions for you which will help to reduce scarring and stretch marks :)

      - Nuxe Huile Prodigieue Multi Purpose Dry Oil nourishes, repairs and softens skin. Enriched with Vitamin E it helps to reduce stretch marks and scarring leaving skin soft.

      - Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil is a soothing oil enriched in Vitamin E and Almond Oil. It helps to reduce all signs of stretch marks whilst nourishing your skin and promoting firmness. 

      I hope this information helps! Please let me know if you are needing any further assistance.

      Have a lovely day :)

      Kind Regards,
