Why is it different?

This mild face scrub, with a milky-gel texture contains pressure-sensitive, environmentally friendly, round jojoba beads that naturally dissolve as you cleanse, making it impossible to over-scrub and cause micro-tears in your skin.

Removes all make up yet soft enough to use every night.

I love that it removes all my make up and keeps my skin soft. My skin doesn't feel stripped afterwards, great product.

Creamy & Luxurious

I've only just started using this product but so far I absolutely love it. The creamy texture and moisturizing beads that melt into the skin make this feel like you are at a day spa. The formula is non-greasy and my skin looks even toned, brighter and soft after using it, with no residue. There is also no dryness, tightness or irritation whatsoever. I will never use another sandy, abrasive scrub again. Great work PC!!

Absolutely Beautiful formula...Love this product!

I have only used this twice so far but have fallen in love with this product. The formula is so creamy and luxurious (like going to a day spa) with dissolveable beads that feel quite large compared to other scrubs, but then melt so beautifully into the skin. My skin felt soft, exfoliated and moisturised afterwards but with no greasiness or residue and definitely no tightness. My skin had a nice glow and was 'stimulated' for a minute but in a good way. I can't imagine using another abrasive 'sandy' scrub again after this.

Not for me

I am a long term PC user but this product missed the mark for me. I use BHAs but find I still need a gentle manual scrub weekly to move things along. Normally I use a soft washcloth with my cleanser, so when I saw the unscrub I was excited. Unfortunately it just doesn't have anywhere near enough jojoba beads to act as a manual scrub, yielding almost no exfoliation at all. It really is just a thick cream cleanser, although it is a very nice one, so I still gave three stars. Used with a washcloth it is fine, but I was doing this anyway with my regular cream cleanser so it was really an unnecessary product for me. Also I am finding PC is starting to get quite expensive, especially with The Ordinary products hitting shelves with effective ingredients at budget prices.

Not a scrub

I like using a manual scrub sometimes but not if they pollute the waters, so was interested in trying this. It does nothing and a washcloth is far more effective - it has a few beads that burst before they can do anything. I gave this two stars because it wasn't awful as a cleanser. However, I am suspicious of the cooling sensation when using this product, which I don't get with any other PC cleanser.

Didn't completely remove makeup.

This product does not remove makeup well enough. I discovered this after finishing off with micellar water and was surprised at how much makeup residue was left. I will finish using the tube for my morning wash when I'm not wearing makeup. It does leave the skin feeling soft.
