Ratings & Reviews

Love this


This is a wonderful cleanser for my dry skin. The exfoliant is very gentle but effective. My skin feels smooth and soft instead of tight and dry. My husband of 36 years even noticed how soft my face felt.




Glowing skin!


I've been using this in the mornings, combining it with a little bit of my Resist Perfectly Balanced cleanser, and I have noticed a major difference! It leaves my skin absolutely clean, clear, moisturized (but not greasy) and glowing. It makes my pores appear smaller and even helped eliminate a few blackheads. I love it!

Wow! Everything it should be


OK, it's been a while since I've gotten this excited about a PC product. This is amazing! My skin tends to pull to the dry side, especially in winter. But it leaves my skin feeling moisturized after washing... super clean, but not tight. I love the beads! And once I used it, I realized I really missed scrubbing. :) Totally awesome.

This definitely has an effective scrubbing action, and the large, round beads buff away dead skin before slowly dissolving with massage in warm water. Very gentle, even on my sensitive skin. Leaves skin soft as silk. This is the scrub I have been waiting for.




Love it, but here's a tip


Love this scrub. Not a fan of overly abrasive scrubs and while I have a few gentle scrubs I use this is a nice addition and does a better job of cleansing skin than just about any scrub I've ever used. It's truly gentle and akin to an all skin types cream cleanser. MY TIP. I see reviews saying the beads dissolve almost instantly. I had the same issue and at first was a bit annoyed, then by accident I discovered that if I used less pressure and was much more gentle, the beads didn't dissolve so quickly. Works perfectly. They still dissolve as intended. But when I applied too much pressure they dissolved so fast there was almost no scrubbing action. Be gentle and I think you'll find it works better.




WOW! This stuff is great!!


Used the Unscrub for the first time on the weekend . . . I was amazed by how smooth & hydrated my face felt after cleansing. No problems with product at all. Used it again 2 days later & got the same excellent results!

Great for daily use, removing last traces of foundation


I use it daily to wash off the final traces of foundation, leaves the skin velvety soft and smooth to touch. I have very sensitive skin that quickly turns red, this scrub does not irritate at all and after I'm done with scrubbing I still have no redness.




Best cleanser


This cleanser/scrub is amazing. It dissolves into your skin and leaves it so soft and clean. Definitely a must have!


Nashville, TN


Great scrub!


I've had no trouble with the beads dissolving too quickly. I used the scrub in the shower and had plenty of time to wash my face, neck, and upper chest before the beads gradually dissolved. When I dried my face, it felt soft, not rough or harshly scrubbed. Thanks, PC!

This product is absolutely amazing. This product, paired with my 2%BHA liquid, makes my skin look flawless. I will definitely be purchasing this again and again.
