Physician Insight

Physician image

I recommend Micro-Exfoliating Scrub as a compliment to most acne and anti-aging regimens. Using 2 to 3 times a week gives your skin a boost in exfoliation to decongest pores and rid your face of dull, dry dead skin. You get an instant glow, allow your skin to absorp product more efficiently, and increase the results from procedures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle and effective I use this at night only, it is very gentle and does not over irritate the skin. I follow with a double cleanser with the Gentle cleanser. The only part of the regimen I have been missing is the Toner that Skinceuticals has been out of for a long time now. I finish with the overnight oily which thankfully does not break me out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best exfoliating scrub period! I've tried them all. All of the high end exfoliating scrubs and this is just simply the best! I have oily, acne and blackhead prone skin and this has been a life saver. I can't say enough about it. I also use the purifying cleanser. Love them both but you need to exfoliate :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scrub I use this once or twice a week. It works perfectly - removes surface level dead skin to improve radiance, help makeup lay on skin better, and prevent breakouts. I’ve been using it for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gentle (but effective) scrub This is my go -to scrub! I use it 3 times/week, and it's especially helpful for the mild flakiness that can appear after using a retinol product. It's very comparable to the Dr. Brandt microdermabrasion but more afforadable and overall a better value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great daily scrub! I have been using this scrub for about 3 months and I love it! I had originally been using the clarifying exfoliating scrub which did not have much grit to it as all so I did not feel like I was exfoliating as much as I needed to especially after wearing makeup. Once this scrub was available again I gave it a try and have not looked back. The perfect everyday scrub for me. As someone who has been struggling to get my adult acne in control I believe this is a great product. My skin feels so smooth and clean but not stripped. I use this scrub nightly to cleanse my skin after wearing makeup. And on the weekends when I tend to not wear makeup I give my face a break and will either not use it or only use it one night. If you are putting corrective products on afterwards this scrub definitely exfoliates your skin so it is ready to absorb as much of that good stuff as it can so you get the most out of those products! Overall, a great daily scrub with just enough grit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Scrub It is really gentle enough to use every morning. It leaves my face so clean and very soft. My foundations goes on smoothly following my moisturizer by Ester Lauder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldnt live without this stuff!! Makes my skin smooth and fresh. I exfoliate once or twice a week with this and have noticed a huge difference in the texture of my skin especially when I wear foundation! It creates a truly flawless smooth canvas. Highly recommend! My skin is dry/combination.
