Rated 4 out of 5��by xAnniehx This product is great for exfoliating but...
First of all, when I tried this product, it was not really harsh or caused any redness to my skin. This product is a scrub with soft and gentle microbeads and I'd say that it really doesn't feel really abrasive as long as you massage gently into your skin. The microbeads really does its job and gives a perfect amount of pressure so that I don't have to scrub as hard. I really find this product to help reduce my redness and I'd use this at night. Before I even bought this product, I've used a cleanser everyday, and I've gotten redness on my skin until I realize that it was also a scrub which is really bad for my skin (cause I shouldn't exfoliate everyday and night).
As proven that it is a scrub, I'd recommend using this 2-3 times a week because it can feel abrasive at times and exfoliating can cause irritation to your skin.
My only concern is that that the packaging ESPECIALLY the hole of the cap that the product comes out in is really bothersome. The product will come out a lot, if you do not [completely] close the lid after you've gotten some product to use and leave it standing (if you know what I mean). Even though the hole is small, the product will easily come out and it just seems watery.
If the packaging did change and the product wasn't as watery, I'd give this 5 stars, but since the packaging was part of my issue, then it's just 4 stars.
Overall, this product is still amazing and will not irritate your skin (as long as you scrub gently) and reduces the redness of your skin. I can't decide if I should repurchase this again, but if it really improves my skin over time, then I will.
I'd recommend this product to anyone who needs a gentle exfoliator.

Rated 1 out of 5��by MarineToxicologist A wonderful face polish - but horrible for the environment
While the scrub is great on my sensitive skin, I was really upset when I read the label more closely and found that it contained plastic microbeads. I'm a marine toxicologist and am so disappointed by Aveno's choice to use plastic as an exfoliant. Toxic pollutants from the environment adhere to the surface of plastic microbeads. Unfortunately, these microbeads also get ingested by sea creatures, poisoning the animals from the inside out. Plastic microbeads also contribute to garbage patches in the ocean. I feel let down by Aveeno, and feel hesitant to buy any product of theirs in the future.

I love this product! I usually don't like face washes without scrubbing beads because I feel like they don't clean my face, but then normal scrubs aren't a good daily wash since the scrubbing beads are usually really rough and dry out my skin. Well this product is perfect it has the most gentle beads and your face definitely feels and looks better afterwards. Also this product smells amazing and I usually hate scented products, but this scent isn't overpowering it's just right!

I would like it better if it were unscented but, since it is not overpowering, I can manage it.

Rated 1 out of 5��by Chum Plastic Microbeads killed my loyalty
I have been using Aveeno products for years. I'm going to have to find a new one. The microbeads are plastic and very problematic for the environment.
Aveeno, please clean up your act and make me want to come back.

Rated 1 out of 5��by Irene Microbeads are plastic--NOT natural, and can harm sealife
I really like Aveeno products and have used them for years and never thought to read the ingredients closely. When one of my adult daughters came to visit I got an education on the effects of micro plastics on sea life. These bead wind up in the ocean and are ingested by fish and other marine life where they break down in their guts causing health issues.
Give me natural substances in my facial scrub!!!! I'm really disappointed in a company I've grown to trust. Now I'm not sure how to dispose of this stuff to keep it from harming wildlife.
I hope the company takes note and changes the beads--something a I would expect from a reputable company like J&J.

Rated 5 out of 5 Sensive Dry Skin
I have always had very sensitive and dry skin (eczema) and I have some scars on the right side of my face. After using this scrub, my tone became more even. I don't have problem with dry skin on my face anymore! I don't go without this stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5��by DoggieMom63 Best facial scrub EVER!
Normally, when I use a facial scrub, I have to stop after a week or so because the rough texture is too much for my skin! This scrub has very small, smooth exfoliating beads that do not scratch! I have been using for several weeks and I like it more and more every day! My skin appears brighter and smoother than it has for years! I would recommend this to ANYONE!
