My Thoughts: I grabbed this on a whim at the checkout line at Ulta one day, and I've used it several times since. It is a very easy to use product to get a very slight exfoliation of the skin without irritation. It's kind of a mix between chemical and manual exfoliation in that you are using a chemical in the gel to loosen the bonds holding the dead skin cells together (chemical exfoliation) plus gentle manual exfoliation with the rubbing.
You smooth it onto dry skin and then let it sit for a few minutes. Then, simply rub until the product has rolled up into balls and rubbed off the skin. It sounds kind of gross, and it is a bit weird rubbing your face and feeling the skin literally coming up off into these little balls, but it doesn't scratch and irritate your skin like a scrub.
My skin feels soft and smooth after in most areas, although it's a very light exfoliation. It doesn't do much in the way of my flaky patches on the sides of my nose when they are acting up. Although it doesn't sting them either, which is very nice.
Final Verdict: I think this would be an amazing product for people with sensitive skin who need a gentle exfoliation that won't irritate their skin.
