The exfoliating gel is not dry and rough, very mild for skin and cleans thoroughly as well.
Once rubbing into skin, I can feel the rougher grain pieces helping to exfoliate! It removed the dry flaky skin I have! I feel my skin smoother and brighter after using this exfoliator for almost 4 weeks. It causes no ill effects or redness to my sensitive skin. This is one of my favorites in my skin care routine.
