Fine siliceous earth in a soothing botanical base gently exfoliates dead cells without damaging pores or capillaries. This organic-aloe-based exfoliant combines diatomaceous earth from the depths of the sea with soothing and nutrient-rich plant extracts for profound cleansing, buffing, and removal of dead cells to improve overall skin health absorption of nutrients. Daily use softens and refines skin's appearance and allows increased absorption of nutrients from moisturizers.  Refines fine lines when used consistently.

Not for some sensitive or broken-out skin.

      I first used this at my last facial and will never use another scrub again. This one is IT! It is pricey, but rest assured, a tiny pinky-nail size amount covers the face so this bottle goes a very long way. Also, I am willing to pay a little more for a natural scrub that works. Astara's Daily Refining Scrub is unlike any scrub you ever had--it has tiny "scrubbers" that feel therapeutic. I have always had tiny blackheads on my nose with larger pores in that area, and after about 7 days, this scrub took care of them and they never came back since. I'm in my mid-30s with combo skin, no skin problems, and this product feels so nice. It's non-drying, non oily. It leaves my skin so perfectly balanced that I often forget to use toner or moisturizer afterward. Treat yourself just once to this product: Your skin deserves it! I'm going to buy a bottle for my sister next Christmas. P.S. Per an earlier review: I actually like Astara's packaging! Simple, classic, elegant.

      The scrub is pretty abrasive (e.g. think drugstore brand Apricot Scrub/grainy)so if you have sensitive skin I would use it with caution. Even with normal skin, I would probably use no more than 2-3x a week. The scrub smells like fresh Grapefruit (i.e. citrus-y smell) and leaves your skin feeling soft, clean, exfoliated, and supple. I don't think it's worth the price though - I think there are cheaper alternatives out there unless you're looking for natural product. Packaging can use some work though - as other reviewers complained below, I had similar experience.

        Comments about Astara Daily Refining Scrub, 6 oz:

        I love scrubs and masks. I've been almost obsessed with them since I was 12 years old. I've tried everything from the most expensive high end brands to the cheapest drugstore brands, but this has got to be the best facial scrub I've ever used. I was drawn to it because of the diatomaceous earth (DE) in the ingredients. If you don't know about DE, you should google it – it's pretty cool stuff with a wide array of uses. Because of the nature of DE, it made sense to me that it might be awesome for exfoliation, and it is! Most scrubs have either rather large or very tiny particles, but this scrub has both. After the first time I used it, my pores were totally clear, my dry winter skin flakes were gone, and my skin was super soft. The only thing you need to watch is that you don't overdo it because this stuff works really well with minimal effort. It doesn't take much, so the bottle should last quite a while. It's definitely worth a try!

          A great basic exfoliator. *Much* more gentle (super-fine grains) than St. Ives products (my former go-to). Delicious orangy-citrus scent. Leaves my face softer than a baby's butt. I don't use more than 4x a week due to sensitive skin, but those with a tougher hide should be able to use daily.

              A continual favorite. I have sensitive, easily irritated skin, yet need to exfoliate. I mix this with a gentle foaming cleanser for a wonderful lathering exfoliating scrub. My skin is soft, fresher-looking, and not red and dry.

              Comments about Astara Daily Refining Scrub, 6 oz:

              I just adore this scrub. I discovered it three years ago, and still can't find anything to beat it. The grains are amazingly fine which is especially good for oily skin, as I've noticed harsh exfoliation just makes matters worse. The smell is fresh and and the oils (lavender, grapefruit etc.) leave the skin lightly moisturized. I like the lavender in particular, as it aids in healing skin damage. I've also never had problems with the pump, and think the blue glass bottle is lovely (reminds me of an old colored glass apothecary bottle).

              Comments about Astara Daily Refining Scrub, 6 oz:

              This is the BEST SCRUB I've ever used! The fine granules are surprisingly and effectively abrasive, but without being at all harsh. Each time I use it, I see noticable results: my skin is smooth and glowing, and feels super-soft. If I just want a gentle scrub, I wet my face first. But if I need more aggressive exfoliation, I use the scrub dry. This is an EXCELLENT PRODUCT and well worth the price!

              This is product is excellent!!!! I've used many facial scrubs, but nothing so far has come close to this one. My pores are barely visible now, and my skin looks so much better. I do have sensitive skin and used the scrub everyday, but I did a gentle massage, for less than a minute, and didn't have any problems with it.
