Most Helpful Positive

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.

Most Helpful Criticism



Way too harsh for your face or chest, but great on legs or rough patches of skin. You have use quite a bit, as it doesn't glide well, but still an ok scrub

  2. too strong


    this is too strong and too harsh for me, left my skin irritated
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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).
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Smooth skin


    verified purchaser
    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
  9. brightening


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

    Evie Wonder

    verified purchaser
    Great value, lasted me ages. Prefer to use on decolletage rather than face as I found it too harsh on my facial skin.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. The perfect scrub


    Scrub on point. Price on point. Skin feels amazing and soft and clean. So recommend this Skinstitut Glycolic scrub.
  15. 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...

  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. 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...

  19. 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!
  20. Not for everyone.


    Found it to harsh on my face as I have dry skin type, but really good for overall body scrub, at winter is great to mix this with an oil, make sure you follow up with great moisturiser.
  21. favourite


    Favourite Glycolic Scrub, love using this as well on my body. Very exfoliating and really helps to give a great cleanse.
  22. A staple


    Love this from the product range. Really gentle cleanser that leaves me glowing and less oily without the uncomfortable tight feeling
  23. Amazing


    I love the skinsitut range, the glycolic scrub is amazing. Smooths skin leaving it glowing.
  24. a bit harsh for me


    this is a great idea and will probably have a good effect on others with normal and not sensitive skin. I just found this a bit harsh for me
  25. Great product


    This is my go to scrub, my face feels so smooth afterwards. Great product and a good price.
  26. Favourite Scrub


    Excellent facial and body scrub. Leaves my skin silky smooth.
  27. Amazingggg


    So glad I bought this. I've only used it a few times but already can notice improvements with my acne/scarring. It's not too harsh, perfect amount of exfoliation and has a fresh smell. This will definitely become a staple in my skin care routine, and it goes nicely with the gentle cleanser.
  28. Amazing but not for sensitive skin.


    SUPER effective manual scrub - especially for teenagers and super oily skin... however - don't use it on sensitive skin. It's much too harsh and might compromise your lipid barrier, leaving your skin skin dry, sore and super sensitised. My skin was red and angry for about a week after using the scrub, only because it was very sensitive before I used it.
  29. Amazing product


    It has definitely helped with my congestion, I have seen so much improvement over the last week of using it.
  30. Amazing product


    surely it makes ur skin clean n glowing..I find it suitable for even my dry skin..it leaves my skin subtle n soft..my one of most fav product of all times.
  31. No visible results yet


    I bought this for my husband who has body acne. This doesn't irritate his skin as he has very sensitive skin. But he has not seen any positive results even after using it for the last 3 months. Won't repurchase.


    I love this scrub so much! I use this every few days and it makes my skin feel so smooth and fresh. Highly recommend if you’re looking for something to exfoliate your skin!
  33. Great for blackheads


    I have quite oily acne prone skin, with blackheads and I use this scrub every 3 days or so and was super impressed by the way it has cleared up my blackheads and controls them. I love this whole range!
  34. Intense and Effective


    This scrub is super gritty so be careful not to get it around your eyes. It is by far the most effective scrub I have ever used. My skin feels amazingly soft and smooth after use. I have started incorporating more glycolic acid into my skincare routine and cannot be happier.
  35. I really enjoyed this product


    I found this pretty good for my sensitive skin. It left my skin feeling extra soft and feeling like it has had a deep clean
  36. Delivers a nice result


    This scrub is a great once or twice weekly deep cleanse for skin. I only use it on my more congested areas and shoulders but can see a difference after use
  37. Does exactly what it says on the tin


    This is a great all rounder scrub - great to unclog pores on your face or body. It is quite drying on the skin though so be sure you follow-up with a good moisturiser - I went from using it daily to 3 times a week. It also did wonders for ingrown hairs on my legs from shaving/waxing/laser.
  38. Skinstitut


    I think this is too harsh for face, but worked a treat on my back acne. Cleared it after a week
  39. Try this if you want smooth skin!


    A decent scrub for a fair price, the granules effectively remove dead skin and superficial bumps over time depending on method of application. A slight burn/tingle to the skin however I know it's working, 5 stars!
  40. Love this


    I love this product on my face every once in a while. I have keratosis pilaris so use this on my arms, back and legs and I find it helps keep it under control. I use it on my body almost everyday depending on my skin.
  41. I keep purchasing this


    I love this exfoliator. I have been through many bottles. It does a great job of thoroughly exfoliating the skin and below the surface. I started using it when I started laser hair removal as it was recommended, and now I use it as my body moisturiser. The only downside is, I'm not the biggest fan of the slight scent that it has, but that is just a super minor thing!
  42. It does the job


    When I wasn’t as good with my skincare this was a sure way to make my skin feel clean again without being too harsh. Now I’m better though I don’t notice such a drastic change and It isn’t a product that excites me.


    Absolutely love this stuff! It makes my skin feel so nice and tight after and seriously clears my skin up whenever I have pimples coming on. Plus it's lasted ages.
  44. Perfect exfoliant for me


    I've been using this for about 2 years now and it has become my holy grail for facial exfoliants. I like to use this especially before threading/dermaplaning. Be careful not to scrub too hard, lightly will do
  45. Love this scrub


    I love this scrub! You can actually feel it working, it even stings a little bit as you scrub. Makes my skin feel silky smooth afterwards and my complexion looks and feels smoother and clearer.
  46. Great for body exfoliation


    An amazing scrub to exfoliate your body, but didn't use for my face as I have very sensitive skin and the product is pretty intense for a physical exfoliant. Amazing for laser hair removal aftercare as well :))
  47. Great exfoliant


    I first bought the skinstitut glycolic scrub after having laser hair removal. The clinician recommended I used it between treatments. I'm so glad she did because I've been using this product weekly for years now. I don't use it on my face but love using it on my legs before I epilate, it has eliminated ingrowns and infections. I also use it on my chest if I'm starting to get congestion and breakou...

    My gf recommended this product to me and it has changed my life. I use it up to three times a week and it has greatly improved the appearance of my skin. It has reduced my breakouts and blemishes, leaves skin feeling refreshed and smooth. I feel it has also helped control my combination /oily skin. The size of this bottle is also well worth the price it lasts so long because you only need a pea si...

  49. Another good product

    Harley H

    Too many good reviews on this already! It is also recommended to me by laser clinic. Normally I use it for my underarm area, but it works well for the face too. Just make sure you are very light-handed with this if you have sensitive skin because it is quiet harsh on facial skin (My skin is not sensitive, it’s normal but I can still feel uncomfortable if I rub too hard). I use this with Foreo and ...

  50. Bye bye texture


    I was given a sample to try from a friend who works in a beauty Clinique and I’ve brought it continuously since then. This scrub has done wonders for the texture in my face . It can be quite harsh for sensitive skin and should only be used once or twice a week .paired with a nourishing serum after my skin is like I’ve just had a deep cleansing facial.
  51. Amazing product!


    Absolutely love the glycolic scrub. I use it once a week and it leaves my skin feeling brand new. Definitely keeping this in my skincare routine.
  52. Harsh


    Way too harsh for your face or chest, but great on legs or rough patches of skin. You have use quite a bit, as it doesn't glide well, but still an ok scrub
  53. I love the feel!


    Definitely loved this scrub! However I only feel comfortable with using it on my body. As even on my body, I get a tingling sensation and this scrub is probably the most aggressive on the skin, I have felt. The grains are very hard, not like a buffing facial exfoliator... but I can’t complain because it really has helped with the ingrowns on my legs!
  54. good exfoliate


    i got reccomended to use this for my hair removal laser treatment, then i realised it can be used for face as well and its a really good product. I feel like it can be a little bit harsh if you have sensitive skin, so go more light handed when using it. it exfoliate my skin very nicely and i use it twice a week
  55. Great for next morning exfoliation


    What product you put on the night before, you should be exfoliating that skin next morning. Particularly if you are using retinol based products. It gets off all the flaky dead skin cells created by the retinol overnight. Gently rub for at least 30 seconds before washing off!
  56. favourite scrub!


    I purchased this product needing a scrub that worked, something that would actually help de-congest my skin.

    And I am proud to say I have found it! finally a product that helps clear blemishes and acne as well as ensuring it is not to harsh on my skin, I use this approx 3 times a week and feel immediately refreshed. Love it
  57. Best scrub I've ever used


    I have combination skin so I am careful not to use this scrub more than once per week, not too much at a time (a 10c coin size amount is plenty) and not rub too hard on areas that are prone to redness. I have never used a scrub that was so effective with blackheads, blemishes, and also targets pigmentation which is a problem on some parts of my face. It leaves the skin feeling so soft and amazing.
  58. Great gentle scrub


    Great gentle exfoliant without being to harsh on my skin. I purchased this to help decongest my skin which is prone to acne and it has made a huge difference.
  59. great cleanser for oily skin


    Since using this cleanser I have noticed my skin becoming less oily. Its very gentle on the skin as well and doesn't dry me out like other acne cleansers do.
  60. Really effective


    I really love this scrub as it makes my skin feel so much cleaner, although I will say that it does irritate my sensitive skin at times.
  61. #1 morning exfoliator and body exfoliator


    Ive been using AHA leave-in products at night. So when i get up next morning, i use this to exfoliate the dead skin cells that the leave-in product has left behind. And AHA to get rid of the AHA remnants. It's the best thing ever! Also excellent for post-laser hair clinic treatments to make sure you dont get those in-grown hairs.
  62. Good scrub


    I been using this scrub 1 per week for 2 months now. Find it help with in in growth hair issue. But mostly should use for the body only tho, as i find it quote harsh on the face.
  63. One of the best scrubs


    This is actually one of my all time fave face products. I love it and it makes my skin feel soft and fresh afterwards. If I could use it every day I would but it’s only recommended for a few times a week. My blackheads clear and minimal pimples when using this product.
  64. So good!


    I got a trial size of this with my last order and OMG it is fantastic! Gets rid of any blackheads and leaves the skin feeling so smooth.
  65. A tad too harsh for my face!


    I bought this scrub, and over my skincare journey found out that physical scrubs do not agree with my face and I tend to opt for chemical exfoliation instead.. However, my boyfriend is obsessed with this product and always reaches for it first in the shower as his skin is a lot less sensitive. If you don't have sensitive skin and like physical exfoliation, you will likely love it.
  66. Great value scrub


    Always keep this product at home and use about every second day to keep my skin smooth. I find it help reduce congestion and keep my pigmentation at bay
  67. Its ok


    Not the best Glycolic product I have used. Its ok but don't have that wow factor.
    My skin is a bit red after using it.
  68. Skin feels so soft afterwards!


    I use this in the shower once or twice a week, not everyday as I have very sensitive skin. I use very gentle pressure when I am scrubbing my face because I am prone to break outs. This leaves my skin baby soft once I rinse it off! Love it so much and it's such great value!
  69. Not for regular use


    Good product, haven't been able to use it as regularly as I like as it is a chemical exfoliant as well as a physical exfoliant too which can be pretty harsh on my skin. I have gone back to using it once a week and it is great as a weekly scrub. Would recommend for someone that does not have sensitive skin and is happy using it gradually.
  70. Soft clean skin


    I use this product a few times a week after a good soak in the bath. It leaves skin soft and clean. I get a smoother better shave on my legs too. Highly recommend!
  71. Little bumps be gone


    I've always been annoyed by those pesky little bumps on the back of my arms (keratosis pilaris) and decided it was finally time to sort them out. After only a couple of days of using this product in the shower and then mosituring after, my skin was noticeably smoother and dramatically less congested! This has become a regular as part of my skin care routine and use it most days without fail.
  72. Glycolic scrub


    Can be quite rough on sensitive skin but I do think that it works great for eliminating body acne. The chemical exfoliation is great so you don't have to scrub your skin raw


    This scrub is amazing and does wonders for my skin! You only need a pea sized amount to exfoliate your face and it leaves your skin feeling soft and fresh!
  74. Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub

    Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub

    I tried a sample version of the Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub. I used it quite a few times but it never properly exfoliated my face. It just dried it out and left the dead skin that needed to be exfoliated there, this resulted in a lot of white pimples sitting under the surface of my skin.
  75. BEST scrub out there


    Love this scrub! It is an amazing gentle physical exfoliate without leaving your skin dry and tight
  76. amazing!


    I've been using this scrub over a year because I do laser hair removal treatments and I was told to use this scrub regularly during treatments. It has done an amazing job in preventing ingrown hairs and smoothing out my skin and I use this on my armpits and brazilian area.

    One day I ran out of my usual face wash and I decided why not try this scrub on my face too because its originall...

  77. One of the best


    I have used this scrub a few times now and my skin always feels so good afterward. It is so effective at clearing away dead skin and congestion. 5/5.
  78. Go to


    I originally got a sample of this scrub and had to get a bottle after! It really does the job without being too harsh and still smooths and clears without irritating
  79. Consistently good


    I've used this a few times and repurchased a couple of weeks ago. My skin tends toward sensitive so I can't overdo the actives. I use this twice a week and it's perfect. You can target more sensitive areas by not scrubbing as much, and you don't need to apply much pressure at all. My skin looks clearer and my pores are less visible. Highly recommend. A good price for something that works so well.
  80. Awesome Product!


    I’ve been using this product alongside the L-Lactic cleanser and they’ve both cleared my skin up tremendously and they aren’t too harsh on my skin! I love them some much! And they last quite a while!
  81. Strong and amazing


    This is a super strong face scrub!! I can only use it once a week, but honestly it’s all you need at this strength. I use it after I cleanse and my skin is left so glassy and fresh looking, you can tell it’s removed the dull layer of skin after 1 use which is what you want from a chemical exfoliant. Very good value for money!
  82. Great for dry and dead skin near shaving prone area


    I use this product to bring life to any dead or dry skin that could come to the surface as a result of shaving. Used to get those embarrassing dark patches under my arms and I'd be never want to lift my arms up - but this product has changed it for the better!
  83. Hands down best scrub I’ve ever used


    I have sensitive, combination skin prone to breakouts. This scrub has saved my skin! My breakouts are next to nothing now and my skin feels incredible when using twice a week. I use this in combination with the peel and my skin feels and looks so much clearer. I will never buy another scrub ever again
  84. Scrub


    I use this on my legs 2-3 times a week to help with ingrown hairs! it has helped but my skin is quite sensitive so sometimes it becomes red if i scrub for to long! but it does help scrub away the dead skin cells! It lasted me a while to!
  85. Strong product and it works


    Received a sample of this. It works but use with care as it's really strong! Mildly burning sensation in the nostrils when breathing while waiting 30 seconds or so after application for the product to do its job - thanks the generous glycolic acid content. Skin feels smoother after use.
  86. Amazing!


    This product is absolutely amazing! I desperately needed an exfoliating product that was actually powerful enough to do something to my very textured and uneven skin. All the other exfoliating scrubs I have used have done an okay job but this product is next level. My skin is so soft, smooth and clear after using this. I only use it twice a week because it is that good you don't need to use it mor...

It's a much more intense scrub - which is nice if i'm having a very bad skin day, but I feel like it's a bit too much. prefer the alpha h.

    This is hands down the best exfoliator I have ever used. I’ve tried lots of others but always find myself coming back to this one. It leaves your skin feeling so smooth and clean. A purchase you will not regret
  90. Great Cleanser


    I always chop and change my regimen in skin care but I always come back to this one because its fantastic for the price and a great exfoliant for the skin.

    Long time user of this product. This is my absolute all time favourite product. Leaves my skin feeling so smooth and exfoliated and looking very fresh
  93. Great even for sensitive skin


    This is amazing. My skin is sensitive, so I use once or twice a week. It doesn't sting or irritate my skin at all, and when i put on my moisturiser afterward I can feel how soft and clean my skin is. I just make sure that I use a really gentle calming moisturiser after I use it. Love it!

    I love this scrub. I only use it maybe twice a week, when I feel I need that extra clean. It really leaves my skin feeling clean . I wear quite heavy make up all week, so I love this as I feel perfectly clean and not congested at all. Would highly recommend this.
  98. Very good


    I recommend this product if you are going to do laser hair removal, to prevent in grown hairs and just general exfoliation. It can all be used before shaving/waxing.
  99. Lovely scrub


    Love using this scrub. I have acne prone skin and this scrub is gentle and does not irritate my skin. I prefer using chemical scrubs than physical (eg. salt and sugar) scrubs for my face because of my sensitive skin. I use it at least twice a week.
    If you want a more intense scrub I would leave it on my face for your whole shower like 10 minutes plus. I do this when I have especially dry ski...
