Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste 75ml
A pre-mixed, deeply cleansing facial exfoliant. Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste, when massaged gently into damp skin, removes dead cells and unblocks clogged pores to help skin glow.
This exfoliant combines finely ground Quartz, to slough away tired surface skin, and Lactic Acid, to dissolve grime and oil. Exfoliating also allows skin to best absorb your preferred moisturiser. Rosemary Leaf, Lavender and Evening Primrose oils work to lightly hydrate skin.
A multi-action exfoliant suitable for most skin types.

A great exfoliator for anyone looking for a more 'manual' approach to exfoliation.
It is neither abrasive nor does it come with a bad smell like other comments suggest. In my opinion, it does exactly what it says on the tin: Cleanses and uses both lactic acid and finely milled quartz particles to get rid of dead skin. A great alternative to microbeads (which are a grave danger to wildlife).

wonderful ,staple product.
This is the best exfoliator I have found . It leaves skin beautifully smooth, fresh and deeply cleansed without drying .I have dry and very sensitive skin , this product has not irritated in any way . I shall be buying again . Aesop products are natural and there is no artificial perfume in this so the smell is subtle and natural .

Smells like a pond
In general I don't use manual exfoliants, but I wanted to give this one a try because I trust Aesop. It worked well as an exfoliant because it wasn't too harsh or abrasive as it was suspended in a moisturising cream, but it really did smell like the bottom of a pond: dirty and musty. If you're not sensitive to scents you might not mind, but I imagine most people would.

I have to agree with one of the other reviews. I really liked the exfoliator. It seemed to work really well with my skin - it didn't break me out or anything. Plus it lasts for ages. However, the smell! It smells just like sick! You get used to it after a while but it really is a shocker at first.

Smell too overbearing
I bought this a few weeks ago and I am really disappointed. I use aesop skincare regularly and I am usually impressed by their products but found this scrub really harsh on the skin. Apart from being too abrasive for my skin the smell was so off-putting, reading other reviews I can agree that it smells exactly like sick! As soon as I put it on my skin the smell was so overwhelming that I wanted to get it off straight away! Definitely wouldn't buy again and will stick to the aesop parsley seed cleansing mask to help with my skin when it has blemishes.
