First thing i want to say is that i loooove how this scrub is not rough on my skin but still gets the dead skin off. The consistency is really soft and mushy but when used on the skin in circular motions you feel the black sugar lifting the dead skin away. The scrub has a wonderful spicy herb smell but does not hurt my head or breaks my skin out. I love using this as a follow up after the klairs cleansing oil they work great together. However it taste terrible so i dont use it on my lips.... Read more


Great product for sensitive skin. It’s gentle enough for daily use but with some elbow grease, can be quite the exfoliator. I love the grain size and don’t feel like every last inch of my face has been scraped off to where I need to apply 84849392 moisturizers after.


Gentle, yet powerful enough to break up dead skin cells and makes my skin so fricken soft and silky. I love this exfoliate. I'd say good for once/twice a week. The fragrance is sightly of maple to me.


I love using this product after using the Klairs Cleansing Oil. The combination of these two together is amazing because I have combination and sensitive skin. The Gentle Black Sugar Scrub gets rid of all the excess dirt and dead skin cells leaving your face soft and clean. I do recommend for men to use it as well after a shave. Of course you might feel it will hurt a little, but you will get used to it.


I love this product with all of my heart! My skin is very sensitive and it's hard for me to use anything without irritating it, but this scrub is so gentle. My face feels and looks amazing afterwards.


these ingredients in this gentle scrub does away with all the built up dirt and old skin cells, this PROMOTES GROWTH which i love!


I actually use this scrub for my arms because i have KP. it works really well without drying out my skin too much ( I'm sure it works better for oilier skin on the face) but I am ok with that because it helps my skin soak up more moisture.!


this product is quite interesting, which is what drew me in first when thinking on perhaps purchasing. the tiny scrub beads in this wont alarm you, they're very gentle and soft as the scrub works into a firmer, googy texture to get rid of any dirt particles as well as removing oil. my skin sees such a difference once washed off and patted gently, it has a natural shine and smaller pores texture. highly recommend, beats makeup wipes in my opinion!


Can this product be applied to delicate areas of the face such as lips and eyes lids?


I wouldn't use this on my eyelids but on my lips, yes. They need scrub love too! What I found that works twice as well is when I steam my face before applying which opens my pores and allows the ingredients to fully penetrate into my skin as deeply as possible. If using on your lips, be sure to follow up immediately with your favorite lip balm.


I do like this product the only thing is my skin tends to purge after using this scrub. It might be a little to abrasive for my sensitive and acne prone skin.
