This all natural exfoliate vacuums up impurities from deep within pores with naturally detoxifying ingredients. Activated bamboo charcoal powder immediately absorbs and whisks away dirt and excess oil to help eliminate blackheads. Almond flour brightens while powdered pacific ocean and Himalayan pink sea salt first exfoliate, then clarify and heal as they dissolve into skin. Alison says: I use this exfoliate a couple of times a week with my cleanser or alone with water and it keeps my skin super clear. My skin has never felt so soft and there are no blackheads in sight. If your daily skincare routine needs an extra skin clearing kick or you just want clearer skin, period, use this exfoliate 13 times per week. It mixes so easily and you can customize the level of grit, so to speak. P. S. If you have very sensitive skin, test a small patch of skin first. And if you are allergic to nuts, unfortunately, this scrub is not for you because it contains almond flour.
