I have tried several different scrubs/exfoliants over the years but the only one I prefer is Astara's exfoliating scrub. I love its natural ingredients and fresh subtle fragrance, but what's really great is its effectiveness as an exfoliator and the fact it is not at all harsh to my skin. My face is smooth, pores seems tighter, and no irritation whatsoever from the product. As long as this scrub continues to be manufactured and available, I will always purchase it over any other exfoliating scrub.

I have been using this Astara scrub for years. It gently cleanses my face but also lightly exfoliates it each time I use it, resulting in a noticeable smoother, more even complexion. This also means whenever I apply make up or my tinted sunscreen, the product goes on more smoothly. It seems to me a bit pricey, but I use barely a quarter size of scrub in the palm of my hand to wash/scrub my face, so the bottle lasts a fair amount of time.
I am on my second bottle and it will definitely NOT be my last! The granules in this scrub are very fine and gentle on my skin. It deeply cleans out all pores, and leaves my skin silky smooth. All scrubs that I have used in the past contain granules that are coarse and harsh on the skin.....not this one. It has a very pleasant scent, rinses off easily, and a little goes a long way. I recommend this product for all skin types. I use it 3-4 times a week. Astara Blue Flame Purification Mask is another product that I use several times each week. All of the Astara products are amazing!
This is the best exfoliating scrub I have found - and I have tried a lot of them. I use it with my Clarisonic and my skin has never looked better. A big plus is that it does not use plastic beads to exfoliate like most of the others - I am all for not putting more plastic in our oceans if we don't have to.
I've used every product line out there & most of them way too expensive. This line has worked on every family member. As a mom one of my worries has been addressed. Our esthetician, recently relocated from Cali, only uses this line! Why? IT WORKS!Adult acne-gone.Teen acne-disappearing quickly w/no new breakouts.Fine lines-minimal to none.11 between my brows-almost gone.Husband finally using products-YES!So how can 1 line please everybody? It's mostly natural, raw and it works.This scrubs smells delicious. It works for all family members. Gently exfoliates. Try it!
An aesthetician friend introduced me to this product while traveling through Southern India - my skin was breaking out crazytown in the tropical heat and this gentle scrub did the trick. All the ingredients are natural and it smells great. I've tried other scrubs since then in an attempt to save money, but nothing beats Astara Daily Refining. I have combination normal/oily (t-zone) skin with a new adult onset pimple zone appearing along the hair line. I also just ordered the Blue Flame cleansing gel, excited to try it too!
I love this scrub! It makes my face so soft and smooth and it smells lovely. Since I have sensitive skin, I only use it twice a week. It's a little pricey but it's worth it.
I've been using the refining scrub for years now and I can't live without it. I like using high quality skincare and this product is amazing! I don't use it every day but try for 2-3 times a week. It leaves my skin feeling really soft and clean, and the light citrus-y scent is amazing and refreshing. I know it does a great job of exfoliating as my skin always does better (no breakouts, smoother, and brighter) when I use it on a regular basis. I highly recommend it!
My skin is super sensitive and cannot tolerate most products, but I have used this scrub for years and love it. It was first recommended by my dermatologist, and remains my secret for a radiant, younger-looking complexion.
This is my favorite face scrub of all time because it manages to cleanse in a gentle way. I also love that it has natural ingredients!
