Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews
I have never used a product that so successfully delivers on its promises. First of all, the texture is perfect. I have been in the habit of exfoliating with a washcloth for years and this was my first time using a balm; it was so refreshing to use something different and more gentle. Secondly, the smell! I always bought products that smelled like oranges or grapefruit, but this smells like oatmeal cookies- such
Recently bought this product and used it once. I feel great about this product. Skin instantly glow after using it. The exfoliate is very gentle, skin not feel irritate or redness after using. Can use once or twice a week and only leave on for one to two mins. Very easy to use and skin feel good after using it. I will continue to use it and see the result.

I’ve been impressed with this exfoliating balm from Oskia. It’s not a brand I’ve used before but if this is anything to go by, I’ll be buying more of their products! You only need a small amount and it efficiently gets rid of dead skin cells - evening and brightening skin tone. The results are quick! The applicator is great and ensures you don’t use too much. Word of warning - make sure your skin is slightly damp first. When applied to dry skin this can feel really abrasive and leave skin tingling.
Best Use: Breakouts & Acne, Uneven Skin Tone, Uneven Skin Texture, Brightening

Not my kind of balm
I generally prefer a chemical exfoliant to a physical one, but this was a very gentle scrub if applied lightly and emulisifed with water. I did find it needed a flannel to remove it effectively, which could be another step of exfoliation (a step too much if you are sensitive). My main issue is I don’t like to use rich balms for my skin cleanse, i like to use balms yo remove makeup and SPF, and this wasn’t good for that as it has exfoliating granules. I struggled to find the right way to use it.

Favourite exfoliator - gentle and effective!
I wasn't immediately sure about this balm as applied too much (the night after using a strong glycolic toner) and it felt quite harsh on my skin. However I went for an Oskia facial and this was used so I thought i try again and glad I did. Acid toners are great but I find I do need a physical exfoliant ocasionally too. I like to use in the morning (instead of an AM cleanse) once or twice a week and rinse off in the shower. It last ages as very little is needed for an effective exfoliation. Love the smell and the way my skin feels soft yet nourished after use. On second jar and will repurchase - no desire to try anything else at this time!
Best Use: Flakiness, Uneven Skin Tone, Hydration, Uneven Skin Texture, Brightening
