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 2 times a week, any more and you can cause more harm than good!

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. 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.
  2. 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!

  4. 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.
  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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.
  8. 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 ...

  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. Great value


    This really helped my hormonal pimples clear up. If you need an effective face wash this is your product!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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..
  16. 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
  17. 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...

  18. 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.

  19. 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
  20. Tad rough for sensitive skin


    Works great for my body but its a bit too rough for my face
  21. Love!


    love this scrub! feels really great on my skin. Great daily cleanse not too harsh on my skin!
  22. 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
  23. Doesn’t dry my skin


    I really like this scrub my skin feels nice and not dry after use. I used it 3 times a week works as a scrub should.
  24. 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.
  25. 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 ...

  26. 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.
  27. Excellent Facial Scrub


    This exfolaiter is my favourite. It is quite strong so would recommend once or twice a week between usual cleansing.
  28. 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...

  29. 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.
  30. 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!
  31. 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.
  32. great


    really good for oily skin, probably not the best for sensitive skin as its rough
  33. 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!
  35. 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.
  36. 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
  37. 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.
  38. Heavy duty


    This a a really strong AHA that is not for the faint of heart or for those with sensitive skin. It’s quite abrasive & its stings a little when used.
  39. 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.
  40. body


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


    This cleanser is good and will easily last you a few months!! Doesn’t irritate the skin either
  42. Great


    I love this range. I use this on my arms, back and chest pimples and it really helps. If my face is breaking out I’ll use it, but I prefer more gentle chemicals for a face scrub. Still, great product and brand!
  43. 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
  44. 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
  45. 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.
  46. 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...

  47. Lifesaver!


    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
  48. 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...

  49. 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.
  50. Amazing


    Skin is looking so much better after using this 2 to 3 times a week
  51. 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
  52. 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.
  53. 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.
  54. Goodbye bumpy skin


    Ive re purchased this over and over. Its just a general good body scrub. Has helped improved my keratosis pilaris.
  55. 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!
  56. 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!
  57. 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.
  58. Good product!


    I use this product a week or so after I have had laser treatment and its prevented ingrown hairs and kept my skin nice and smooth :) I also have a bit of extra texture on my jawline so use it there also with good effect. Its quite strong though, I'd be pretty reluctant to use it on my whole face!
  59. BEST exfoliator yet


    I expected great results from this product because I know it is a laser clinic-grade product that they use for facials at my local clinic! My first time using it delivered great results! It is a moderate to coarse exfoliator so it is perfect for my combination oily skin as it has been really helpful with unclogging my pores!

  61. Does No Harm Skin Feels good


    I have been using this product since one year now and it has not made a drastic change in my skin tone or the quality but it does clean the skin well and leaves it feeling soft. I use it twice a week following other Skinstitut range. The 200 ml product lasts really long, one year now and it is still going, so very good value for money!! Would I buy again? yes, i have already stocked up from ADore ...

  62. Very good


    really clears up blemishes and the little spots on the back of the arms. Not suitable for me to use daily
  63. a little too rough


    I recevied a sample of this and got about 3 uses out of it. While it did leave my face feeling fresh and smooth, the texture is very rough (more than other physical exfoliantes i've used) and made me cringe as I felt I may be doing damage to my skin! May be better as a body scrub!
  64. My favourite scrub

    Molly May

    I bought this product for the first time a year ago and recently purchased again. This is such a great physical exfoliant - skin feels so soft and reborn after use. The scrub itself is quite coarse so if you are not in to that it may not be for you. I find that you don't need to use a lot of the product for this reason so the bottle lasts a really long time. It is such a good price point for what ...

  65. Couldn't recommend more


    This product was a game changer for my skin. After twice weekly use - my skins feels fresh, clean and glowy!
  66. Backne


    This product is 3 stars only because it is too harsh for your face, I use this for my body only, but gently, if you don't mind the beads in it then it is a good product. It reduced my Acne on my back.
  67. Feel the BURN


    Not ideal for sensitive skin... I think it is simply too harsh. For me, as soon as I applied it to my face it felt like my skin was on fire and I had to wash it off immediately. I tried using it on my legs as well another time and had the same experience. For people who don't have sensitive skin though, I think this would be a really good deep exfoliant to use maybe once a week.
  68. Deep scrub


    If you like a physical scrub this is effective but be careful not to overuse it as it also contains glycolic acid which is a chemical exfoliant, so be wary about doubling up on the exfoliation
  69. Fresh and clean


    Fresh clean feeling. Feels soft and doesn’t dry skin out
  70. Value for money!


    The scrub beads are quite large. Don't scrub too hard if you have sensitive skin. Very good price for the size of the product.
  71. Great product


    Great for face and body. My favourite exfoliant I use this regularly and it keeps my skin sift and smooth
  72. A great product with many uses


    This was recommended as a scrub post laser to ensure no ingrowns and the turn over of dead skin cells.
    I purchased it of Adore as it was cheaper, which was great.
    It has now got an all over body use but is great for when you get stubborn hormonal pimples too. I get them and it definitely works. I love this product and it i s versatile. Great value for money.
  73. Makes my skin feel so smooth! Also works great for laser


    I was recommended to use this scrub after laser hair removal on my legs. However ive used it everywhere else too! I use it on my face and acne on my back once a week and ive noticed a significant improvement in the texture and tone of my skin, as well as any body acne clearing up. Also its really good for laser and hair removal in general because it exposes any ingrown hairs. Ive bought it twice s...

  74. glycolic scrub


    this is an amazing product for textured skin! I use it on my bacne and it's cleared it right up! will repurchase
  75. Once a week go to


    If you’re after a deep scrub this is the one. I only use it once a week because it is quite strong but I do love it. If I know I’m wearing make up the next day (I rarely wear it) I’ll always use this to ensure a smooth surface.
  76. What a scrub!


    Love the feel of this scrub and love this brand. Great price!
  77. Deep exfoliator


    I received this as a (giant) sample, and initially was worried it would be too harsh, but I really like it! I use it once a week as part of a at home facial and it leaves my skin feeling so nice and soft.
  78. too strong


    this is too strong and too harsh for me, left my skin irritated
  79. Good scrub


    I have been using this scrub for a few years now. I like that it is a chemical and physical scrub as it really does its job. Do not over use this product! once or twice a week is enough.
  80. The Best Versatile Scrub!!


    In love with the product! Makes my skin feel amazingly clean and my blackheads minimised. Love the fact I can use it on my Keratosis Pilaris on my arms aswell!
  81. Have purchased many times over the years, great body exfoliant


    This is my favourite exfoliant for my body. It is perfect for arms & legs and is not too harsh. I use it twice a week usually and it helps get rid of dry skin in winter. I find it a bit too harsh for my face though (I have fairly dry, sensitive skin).
  82. Reveals softer skin


    I received a sample of this with a recent order and thought it did a reasonably good job in the exfoliation department. It didn't cause any irritation and made my skin feel a lot cleaner and softer. If you like physical exfoliators you'll be impressed with this product.
  83. Thank you !!


    This is a great product for a nice light exfoliation that works. It is not too harsh on skin. The little beads are just the right consistency. I use this product about 2 times a week and have seen a notice in my skin from not being as dry. Thank you
  84. Smooth skin


    as long as you dont have sensitive skin, this product is super amazing for exfoliation. Its AHA exfoliation, but the little beads give a good physical exfoliation too. Good for post laser hair removal
  85. brightening


    My skin feels nice and firm after using this product. I have noticed the reduce in dark spots too
  86. Great value scrub

    Evie Wonder

    Great value, lasted me ages. Prefer to use on decolletage rather than face as I found it too harsh on my facial skin.
  87. Great Exfoliant!


    I started Laser treatments mid last year and I buy this every two months, it is so great to remove ingrown hairs with a exfoliating mit. There is no strong scent as well for anyone with sensitive skin. The price is so great aswell compared to buying store, such a savings.
  88. Great scrub


    I got a sample of this product and bought the large size straight away. It worked wonders on my face and completely smoothed the texture of my skin. I have been using it every couple of days and it has been fantastic. It is nice on the body too.
  89. Great!


    I love this exfoliator!

    My skin feels clean and refreshed after using it!

    I like exfoliators that you can scrub real hard with (I know you’re not supposed to)

    It’s one of the only ones I’ve used in a long time that actually makes my skin feel clean and smooth
  90. The perfect scrub


    Scrub on point. Price on point. Skin feels amazing and soft and clean. So recommend this Skinstitut Glycolic scrub.
  91. Amazing for managing my keratosis polaris!


    This cleanser is amazing to use on the body! I personally don't use it on my face, but I do suffer from keratosis polaris (KP) on my arms, and this is phenomenal at managing this!

    It is also great to use 1 day before I apply my fake tan, so I have a nice, smooth base to put tan on; and when I want to remove old tan, this scrub and a loofah do a great job at removing it without making...

  92. Fantastic, but may be too harsh for sensitive skin


    I find a lot of exfoliants don't exfoliate quite enough for me and I still see visible dry skin flakes afterwards. This scrub seems to work every time though and leaves my skin super soft, and able to absorb moisturiser and serums really quickly. The particles are quite large though, so because of this and the glycolic acid, it may be too much for sensitive or eczema-prone skin.
  93. Makes my skin so clean and soft


    The product comes in a massive tube, and you only need to use a minimal pea spot amount of product to get your clean super clean and soft. I imagine this will last a very long time!

    It has helped remove my whiteheads, and I have now incorporated into my routine a few times a week with great outcomes. I'd definitely recommend giving it a go!
  94. Fantastic, good value, haven't had acne since


    Haven't had acne since using. After cleansing to get rid of the oils, I dry my face, apply this and gently exfoliate for about 30 seconds. It's amazing but quite strong and the fumes burns nostrils a bit. Skin is noticeably smoother immediately afterwards though. Dead skin cells are removed to prep the skin for the rest of my skincare routine.

    The scrub particles are a bit annoying to...

  95. Very strong exfoliater


    I don’t usually use this on my face I exfoliate my body with this, sometimes when my skin is super dry I will add oil and mix together. Definitely follow with moisturiser after!
