More like Rich Cleanser Review by Pierre
Kyoku feels more like cleanser. Leaves your skin very clean so I use it in between the more aggressive scrubs during the week. It has a light texture but not enough to really exfoliate. Bought two.
Look and Feel: Smooth and creamy with some texture
Text: The text is easy to read because it's black on white body in lower case
Smell: Very fresh and clean which is what you want but not overpowering
Texture: Light texture from walnut shells and rice grain
Product Placement: Inside the shower rail and standing in medicine cabinet
Great feel, without any harshness. Review by Joe
It feels very refreshing and lacks some of the harshness found in other similar treatments that can normally result in some discomfort. And since you generally need only small amounts and are only supposed to use it once every few days, the value is great as well.
Tingly then smooth Review by Keith
I think it has the right amount of grit for sensitive skin. I use this with Kyoku's face wash at least two nights a week. A nice tingle while on, and washes away easily leaving your face smooth! This bottle should last a while since you won't be using it as often, and a pea size amount is more than enough.
Could be grittier, but still very good Review by Myles
As with the other Kyoku products I've used, this seems to work very well. It's not a science, but I definitely notice an improvement. The bottle could be a little bigger for this price, but I'll still purchase it again.
Like I mentioned in the title, it could be a little rougher or grittier, but it could be a bonus that it's more gentle for some people.
clean Review by Louis
You only need a little, very rich. Not too rough, yet smooth's away the dead skin ,looking fresh and clean.
Great for Sensitive Skin Review by Logan
Kyoku always has great products. This is one of them that is over the top for them. I suffer from oily skin, acne, and uneven skin tone in spots. Using this for a few months, without a doubt has helped my complexion ten-fold. I would say that if your face can handle it, consider the Urth Scrub. More grit to it, but I feel it does a better job cleaning and removing blackheads as well. Don't get me wrong, this product is just as good. Depends what your face can handle, in my opinion.
Great Review by Melvin
After the first use you can notice your skin clearer, I have a sensitive think skin and this product works perfectly and isn't harsh. I recommend it.

Great Xfoliator Review by Carlos
Superb for a one month time use
One of my Favorites! Review by Richard
I've tried many different scrubs and if you like Kiehls Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub, you are going to love this scrub even better. As mentioned, it's aittle bit more gentle than other scrubs. I use it about four (4) times a week with just a small amount needed. I plan on using this for now on.
Never had anything like it. Review by Peter
This facial scrub is light on your face. It feels clean and leaves your face looking great as well. I would recommend this product to anyone with sensitive skin or someone looking for a cleaner feeling scrub.
Great Value! Review by AJ
On a continuum between a cleanser and a scrub this falls more toward a cleanser. It smells great and a little dab goes a long way but, for my skin I prefer the grittier scrubs by Urth, Menscience and even Eyre. I plan to use this product on my off-days from the scrubs as it is gentle enough to be used as a cleanser. Overall, this is a good product with excellent value as I see the 3.4 oz stretching for several months. I deducted a couple stars because it's listed as a scrub whereas I see it as a cleanser.
Good but GENTLE Review by Drama
I agree with the rest, this scrub is as good as it gets. But it's very important to note that it is VERY GENTLE, I consider it a face buffer and polisher more than a deep, rough scrub. If you want something intense, Eyre is the way to go. For a light, smooth scrub, gentle enough to use every/other day, Kyoku is the best. And a pea-sized drop is all you need. At $21, maybe the best value product on this site.
Kyoku - the best scrub I've come across Review by Kaleb
Another reviewer said that this scrub is on another level altogether, and I completely agree. It is an extremely impressive scrub. The product is nothing less than awesome; the ingredients are definitely effective, it clears up your face and does wonders for your complexion, and has a very pleasant scent and consistency. Buy it the next time you order something from the Grooming Lounge.
Finally Review by Kenneth
No acid to wash your face...just natural ingredients that work to clean this oily face.
Best out there Review by RAY
This scrub is by far the best I've tried, not too harsh so you feel like you're shredding your face, and not too soft like those filled with jojoba beads. Smells great and feels great after, especially when you use leave it on for a minute like a pseudo-mask.
Buy this scrub. Review by Jonathan
I've been using this religiously for the past few months (2-3 times per week). I have definitely noticed a vast improvement in the quality of my skin, and admit I've been recommending this to anyone who will listen. At the price, for this quality, I highly, highly recommend Kyoku's Exfoliating Facial Scrub.
Very Nice Review by KK
This products ranks a close second for me behind the Urth scrub. Smell is good and only need a very small amount to be effective. I used this stuff in the shower before my morning shave and noticed it was a lot closer shave than normal
The best Review by kenneth
My favorite the only one i use.
Not bad, not great. Review by Stephane
This wasn't a bad scrub but I found Urth's to be a lot better. This doesn't have much grit and reminds me of Anthony Logistics scrub but with a much more "gum" like texture. Overall not a bad product and I would buy again.
Excellent Scrub Review by Chico
Another excellent facial product from kyoku...leaves your face feeling so clean and refreshed. A little goes a long way and the smell is pretty good.. I have oily to combination skin and didnt feel that it dried me out nor did it encourage blemishes...i used 2-3 times per week after my normal cleanser...will buy again.
One of the best scrubs Review by JIM from the OC
This is one of my top 3 scrubs and easily the best value. I have tried alot of scrubs and use only this, Urth and Eyre at home. Very good value as you only need a little but this improves your complection and gets rid of acne. I love Grooming Lounge for offering so many products to try and the best pricing. This is a keeper.
Great Scrub Review by Joseph
My barber uses a scrub on me before he gives me a shave so I decided to try a few. This one is the best one I have found and use it 2 or three times a week. I live in harsh climate and this does the job.
Great Review by BBWI
Great scrub. Really smooth and silky lotion mixed with pumice rock. Left my face soft and moist. One of my favorites
Best Scrub yet Review by Edward
When it comes to scrubs I am very critical. I have tried a few scrubs listed here and while they are all good none of them really delivered on what i wanted. Most of the time they would leave my face irritated. I would read reviews here about how all these scrubs would leave this super clean fresh and smooth feeling while evening out the complexion. While I would experience this to a small degree, for the most part I just didn't get all the hype about scrubs until i tried this one.
Guys, this scrub is just on another level altogether. It has this amazing texture that is not too abrasive yet does the job beautifully. The combination of ingredients feels fantastic on your face and the smell is awesome. When I rinsed this sucker off not only did my face feel clean, fresh, smooth and all those other things I always heard about, but it felt as if a thin layer of dirty film had been lifted from my face. Wow! Amazing stuff!
I have not yet tried Urth scrub but this one is going to be tough to beat!
great face wash Review by Steve
really like this face wash, very invigorating, and rinses clean, you only have to use a very small amount
