By Christopher Ganoe from Alexandria , VA
I was looking for something that would clear my skin and prep my face for shaving. It took about a week to really see the effects of this product but now I cant live without it. Great thing about it is it last about 2 months. No more ingrown hairs or irritation but you must use all three products Shave Cream, Micro Scrub and Post Shave repair spray. No regrets here.
Use it! Unless you like having ugly skin.
By This Guy from Los Angeles
I love this stuff. I used to use it a few years ago and it really helped clear up my skin. I stopped using it and changed to a different routine when my skin cleared up, bad mistake. I'm just going to go ahead and keep using this til I die, or they stop selling it.
By James B from Orlando, FL
I've tried many different types of facial scrubs, but they always either left my face dry and burning , or without feeling clean and smooth. I have used this product many years and it has been an excellent cleanser, leaving my skin looking healthy without feeling dried out. I highly recommend it.
By El W from Philadelphia, PA
Awesome Product. Use it twice a week and it works wonders!
By john d from miami
Finally a product that works for me.
By Pete from Falls Chuch, VA
At first I was hesitant to purchase this product due to the cost, but am very glad I did. This product does an excellent job of removing blackheads and definitely prepares the face for an easier, more comfortable shave. It does not irritate my skins as other scrubs would. Overall the product is excellent and to be fair, the only con that I see to the product, is a slight a chemical scent; but I really can't complain as the overall effectiveness outweighs the opinion of a scent.
By Ward Rice from Edgewood, KY
I have tried several face scrubs and this one is my clear favorite. This product contains the most microfine particles compared to others I have tried. I actually use it every morning before shaving and I get the closest shave ever. My complexion is much more even since using this scrub and the age spots have disappeared. I also like the smell which is not overpowering. Two other scrubs I tried have all natural ingredients, but do not contain as many particles and one smells like mint which takes some getting used to or the other has a smell that is so overpowering I have to hold my breath to use it. This scrub is more pricey than those, but a classic case of you will get what you pay for.
By Brian E. from Los Angeles, CA
Great product! This wash solves both acne and ingrown hairs at the same time. I hope they never stop making it, I will always buy it. Worth the price! Thank you Menscience.
By Andrew from Los Angeles
What can I say? The Microfine Face Scrub is the best product I've ever used. It has Glycolic Acid which is essential for skin health as well as many other excellent ingredients. It has Salicylic Acid for oil reduction but don't count on it for keeping acne away. I tried eliminating my other Cream Face Wash with salicylic acid and just use the face scrub but I started breaking out badly. Of course, everyone's skin is different and I tend to have very oily skin, more than most.
BEST SCRUB YOU WILL USE
By Richard Buono -Conrad from Western ,MA
It makes you feel do clean when you use it . You will love it !! Worth every dime !
By alex n. from
honestly my skin looks 10 times better after using this product,looks as good as it did when i was younger. I have dark brown skin and i wasn't sure if this would actually work but wow i mistaken.
CusCustomer for life
By Ty from San Leandro Ca
Great product really improves my skin instantly and makes my skin so soft and smooth.
Definitely gets daily street traffic and natural pollution dirt out
By Thom ZZC from Fort Myers, FL
I have for 50 years thoroughly washed my face at night; now it is twice as nice to have smoother skin and cleaner pillow cases. Other scrubs I have used; many more pricey; over the years does not offer both benefits.
Love this scrub
By Brandon from Atlanta
I've stayed away from scrubs because they tend to be too harsh for my skin. I heard great things about this one and one by another popular men's skin care company so I decided to try both and hands down this one was best! Its not harsh at all, yeah it does a fantastic job. I really, really loved the way my skin looked and felt after using it. I'll definitely be ordering this from now on.
The best face scrub ever!
By Ron C. from Singapore
I swear by this face scrub! It removes all the dead skin and black heads from my face without irritating it. The tiny beads roll over the skin so it doesn't have that scraping feeling that you get from other scrubs. I've been using this twice a week for more than a year now and it's probably the one face product that I'll be using until they stop making it. I use it with the daily face wash, tonic, and anti-aging formula and the results have been awesome! My skin has been smoother, less oily, and my acne scars have improved tremendously. I've tried so many products over the years and Menscience is just the best of the best.
Does The Job
By Trevor D from London
Excellent Product, that revitlize your skin, Highly recommed
By Doug W from Chicago, IL
I recently purchased the MicroFine Face Scrub. I have been a long time acne sufferer and my Dermatologist has had me on multiple regimens over the years. She recently recommended that I start using an exfoliant two to three times per week to removed the dead skin cells and help unclog my pores. Given that I am also on some prescriptive topical medications, she recommended the MenScience brand and that I use it once the first week, twice the second week, and then three times the third week. After two months of use, I am so happy to report that I have seen tremendous results in my skin. I have not have a breakout for the last six weeks. I have suffered no irritation, dryness, or flaking. I noticed that my skin is less inflamed during the day and I don't have that appearance of greasy buildup. The congested pores around my nose appear smaller and are no longer clogged. I am happy to say that I am 38 years old and have had people compliment me on my skin for the first time in my life!
I would highly recommend this product! I would recommend if you are on any topical prescription medications as I am, that you check with your Dermatologist before using this product. Just to be on the safe side.
By Robert Houston from Alabama
This product has helped in the true cleaning of my face; it is no doubt as it shows up in the glow of my skin
By Lou G. from Pittsburgh
I love this stuff so much. There's absolutely nothing else on the market that compares! Use it just once and you'll be hooked.
it is a great. i loved it.
By Imamverdi Ibrahimov from
it is a great. i loved it.
great exfoliating face wash
By Francis C from hawaii
at times, my face will get flakey and I'll have dead skin making my face look like its peeling. After i use the microfine face scrub, all the flakes disappear making my face look normal again. It also helps to remove blackheads and deeply cleans out all the oils and dirt. It does leave your face a little dry afterwards so i would recommend using the face lotion as well.
Excellent , Effective Product
By T.S. from Washington , D.C.
I've been using the Microfine Face Scrub for about a month and my peers have noticed a positive improvement in my skin's appearance and texture. The texture of the grains are abrasive enough to lift the facial hairs in prep for shaving, but mild enough for daily use without stripping the skin of it's natural oils; the perfect balance. the other ingredients aid furhter in exfoliation, removing discolorations, shrinking pores and revealing brighter smoother skin all around. Using this in conjunction with other menscience products even produces better results. I'm hooked!
By JB from Roanoke, VA
Have used other face scrubs and none compare to this. Excellent product!! Have re-ordered several times. Have also used the mask and it is just as good. I love their products!
Microfine Face Scrub
By Ryan from South Jersey
Overall a great product. I noticed results after my first use and it only got better from there. As a black guy I have a lot of trouble with razor burn and ingrown hairs after a good shave, but with the Microfine Face Scrub my shave has become much more comfortable and looks much better even days afterwards. I would highly recommend this product those seeking relief from ingrown hairs and razor burn.
By anonymous from
Saw a difference right after I used it
Better than any other scrub I used
By A A from Tucson, AZ
Very good product, it really does the job. I use it once a week and it makes my face looks very clean. I am about to finish my first bottle and now I am buying the second one.
By Mike from Minneapolis, MN
This is a great product so far. It is very much like what is available from another company I've used but for a much better price for the results
Not that impressed
By Tim from San Francisco, CA
The directions say to "Massage with a light, circular motion for 1-2 mintues." No matter how "light" you do it, it feels like you're using coarse sandpaper on your skin, even for 30 seconds! I won't buy this again.
By Jamie from Zurich, Switzerland
I use it about 2-3 times a week and it exfoliates and cleans great.
Smooth Skin Glows !
By Greg B from Boston, MA
At 62 yo I find this product gives my face a subtle smooth glow, having exfoliated the old cells present. People ask me about my "secret" given the good skin appearance. I think it has helped reduce the small brown keratoses my family passed on to me, and may even reduce the tiny wrinkles that are creeping in. I've tried other face scrubs with larger gritty particles, and this one beats them all. I HIGHLY recommend it for three times weekly use.
By gregory garrison from
Good stuff! Been using for quite awhile.
By John Beattie from Arvada, CO
Good stuff! Been using for quite awhile.
By Carl from Knoxville, TN
At first I thought that this was a little much for my face. I thought that it was a little too thick and difficult to apply. After getting used to the application process I can say that it is a very good scrub. If found it to smooth my face without stripping it with visible results.
First time user
By JD from
I will be honest, I had never used an exfoliant on my face before. So, using this product was a new experience for me. My girl uses one twice a day, so I sort of knew what to expect. This product goes on easily and lathers up nicely. By using the MS brush, you can really work this product into your skin. You truly can feel a difference after you rinse. I have used this product 5 times, and co-workers have already commented on how good my skin looks. Great stuff!
Face Scrub makes a difference
By Thomas Post from Green Bay, WI
This is a great scrub. I use it about twice a week, because I don't want to over exfoliate. However, I do notice nicce difference in my complexion after I use it. I use the face wash twice a day along with my other skincare regiment.
Good Face Scrub!!!!
By Serge from
works well!!! expensive though
If it ain't broke then don't try to fix it.
By Tr0yG from LBC
I've been a loyal MS customer since I first discovered their products back in 03', however, I'm not really feeling this new face scrub formula. The content is very thick and pasty. When I first opened it, I thought it was, well I don't know what I thought it was, but it wasn't what I was accustomed to using. Once I began rubbing it on my face, I could feel the scrubbing particles but they weren't as prominent as the previous solution, it almost feels as if they begin to diminish after a short time. Because it's so thick, it takes more effort (and more product), I feel, to get the job done. I'm not saying this is necessarily a bad product, nor do I think it fails at what it's designed to accomplish, I just feel that compared to it's predecessor, it doesn't achieve with near the same impact. Especially when used to shave prep. Maybe other customers felt the previous face scrub was to harsh and that's why MS changed to the new format, but, I hope MS returns to their roots with this product.
Product does not seem potent
By Wilnic Marc from Tallahassee, Fl
When i bought this product i was expecting for the product to be more potent compared to store brand product. With the type of ingredients that they high lighted on the label and online page It was far from being potent. I feel like even a store brand product was as potent as this product. I feel like if i pay this amount of money for this type of product it needs to be alot more potent. I might as have well went to Wal-mart and spent $5 and got the same potency and efficiency.
Top of the line face scrub
By George Dean Vosnos from Highland Park, IL
This facial scrub is amazing and simply does not compare to any other product of its kind on the market. It contains high quality, natural ingredients, and while skeptical about urea being an ingredient - in all actuality it is an organic compound and plays a vital moisturizing role thanks to its nitrogen-rich qualities. This scrub also serves as the choice precursor to a perfect shave. A bit pricey, but worth every penny.
Best face scrub i've ever used
By Steven Robertson from Palm Beach , Florida
This is the best face scrub i've ever used .... whenever i use it my skin looks fresh and smooth . Work well with the face lotion ... if i were to only have two face products it would be those two .
Gets you clean
By Dustin Dis from
I've been using this product 3-4 times a week and it's fantastic. Results are clearly visible and it has not dried out my skin.
Really good face scrub.
By Derick D. from Mt. Airy, NC
Second time i bought it, really like it, love the way it makes my face feel, would recommend to anyone.
The most luxurious facial scrub I've used
By Josh W. from Boston, MA
This scrub is spa-quality: It's incredibly thick and luxurious. When I use it for the recommended one to two minutes, it leaves my face more rejuvenated than any other scrub I have used. I highly recommend this scrub.
By Doug B. from Mesa, AZ
I use this stuff every other day or so prior to my morning shave. It seems to help smooth things out prior to subjecting my face to the blade. There is a warning on the package that some of the ingredients may make your skin extra sensitive to sunlight, so keep exposure to a minimum or use sunscreen... For what it is worth, I live in the desert and I haven't had any problem.
I like that it doesn't have a nasty smell and it doesn't feel like a handful of wet sand. Simple, not greasy, just abrasive enough, and washes away clean.
IT GET'S MY FACE PREPARED FOR SHAVING.
By NATE W from LAS VEGAS
I REALLY LIKE THE FACE SCRUB, IT GET'S MY FACE PREPARED FOR SHAVING.
Best Scrub I've found
By Jeffrey L from Berkeley, CA
You don't need much of this scrub to cover your face, and it's a great thing to add to your shower regimen..
Great Face Scrub
By MikeB from Alexandria, VA
I have used a bunch of different products from other brands the past couple of years. Because I've had great success with other MenScience products (deodorant, advanced face lotion, Tio2 sunblock), I decided to give the face scrub a try. I use the face scrub every other day and it works great at smoothing out and preparing my face for a close comfortable shave. The face scrub has small fine beads and is great for buffing and smoothing your face. Very good product.
second to none!
By Gus from SLC
I just got my second order of the menscience face scrub in less than one month! i have tried several facial scrubs and menscience's is second to none. highly recommended, leaves my skin really soft and clean.

Best Facial Scrub I've Ever Used, must have for Men !!!!!
By Ruben P from Dallas, TX
I purchased this scrub couple years back and I loved the results it gave my face. My skin felt great and looked very healthy. Nonetheless, I finsihed the product and I forgot the name. Shame on me! I went back to the store I bought it from and the store was not there anymore. So, I went online and found the name and I am placing an order today. I would recommend this product to all men. It's great!!!!!
By Chris from Rhode Island
This is the best scrub on the market, in my opinion. The salicylic acid helps with acne prevention. I like that the product also has a high concentration of small particles (instead of larger particles in smaller concentrations like other scrubs)
Microfine Face Scrub
By Anthony from Houston, TX
on 3/2/2010 6:03:00 PM
I use this product as pre-shave when I want to shave my face completely or when I just want to trim up a thin beard. I have ordered this product many times in the past. I have always thought this product helped to soften my beard. When I have used it in the past, there is normally a thicker, "soapy" type of foam that develops which allowed me too spread it easy on my face. However, this last bottle I received basically had no type of foam action at all. I will order another one but if the same thing happens, I will no longer order this pre-shave type of product from Men's Science.

An Absolute Must-Have!
By Andrew from Charotte, NC
on 3/1/2010 11:03:00 AM
I saw this product in a magazine and thought I would try it out. I have never bought anything else since! I even order 2 or 3 at a time because I know I will use it. It's a far superior product than anything else I've used before. I use the scrub almost every morning. It leaves your face clean and smooth. There's no fragrance so it's perfect for sensitive skin. It's great before shaving too. I never travel anywhere without it. Face scrubs can sometimes seem like they're for women, but because of the name and modern look of MenScience, you don't have to be ashamed about having this in your bathroom. Buy this product. You will not regret it!
The Ultimate Face Scrub for Men
By Phil from New York, NY
on 3/1/2010 8:03:00 AM
MenScience Microfine Face Scrub Exfoliating Face Cleanser is by far the best scrub I have used for sensitive skin. Combined with MenScience Advanced Shave Formula, you will achieve clear skin and the closest shave. Within only a few weeks of using the face scrub, pores are cleaner, redness has disappeared, after-shave results are perfect, and overall complexion has greatly improved. A must for every man.
Best Scrub I've Ever Used
By Frank Mackey from Silver Spring, Md
on 3/1/2010 7:03:00 AM
Unlike a lot of products I have tried, this one holds together very well once you lather up with it (with some, the grit separates when wet and it's harder to get a good scrub). And it's not so gentle as to feel like it's not working. Very refreshing!
By Dr. Paul from San Diego

Finally the perfect scrub
By Tim from Decatur, AL
on 2/25/2010 2:02:00 PM
I feel like I have tried every scrub through the years. I've used from very expensive speciality brands to low end drug store brands and this is the star that blows the rest away. Whether I use as a pre-shave or before moisturizing at night this scrub leaves my face sooooo smooth and soft. Seems pricey but its not. Takes a little for big results.
Exfoliating face cleanser
By John from Long Island, New York
on 2/15/2010 11:02:00 AM
I have been trying a bunch of different products in the past couple of years. I read that the best scrubs have small beads and this microfine scrub has just that. Honestly the first time I used it before shaving and paired it with the advanced shave lotion, it was the best shave I have had. It works really well as an exfoliator and hides my laugh lines and just makes my face feel more fresh. I can't really imagine there being a better facial scrub.

Best Men's Scrub On the Planet
By Men's Skin Enthusiast from Irvine, CA
on 10/29/2009 9:10:00 AM
I use the scrub every day as my face wash, morning and night. As recommended by Men Science, I massage the scrub on my face in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes, and then let it sit for 1-2 minutes for extra exfoliation. Leaves my skin soft, helps with breakouts, and definitely improves the complexion. I have sensitive skin, and the scrub does not irritate it. The only con I can think of is daily use for people with extra sensitive skin. Overall, this is the best scrub on the planet for men! Take advantage of the twin pack! Go MenScience!
Does the job
By HK from Berkeley, CA

I wonderfully doest its job while not being too irritating.
I would buy this product again
This is a really good product
By Whiskers from Spokane, WA
on 10/6/2009 1:10:00 PM
I use this product a couple times a week, or when I feel like the daily face wash just isnt working well enough.
Things that are great about this, is that you have never felt cleaner then after using this product.
I havent found anything negative about this product, other then you recieve a small amount for the cost.
By Cadet Brett from Springfield, MO
on 10/6/2009 1:10:00 PM
Great to use before shaving. I have to shave every day and without a break in between I would get ingrown hairs every now and then. I haven't had any since I started using this product. Make sure you have a good moisturizing after shave, as this product will dry out you skin significantly.
Great Facial Scrub for Men!!
By SlickBuyer from California
on 7/4/2009 11:07:00 AM
This is one of the best facial scrubs I've used for Men. I used to use Lab Series facial scrub but the tube was kind of small and expensive. Then I tried out Menscience and have been very satisfied. The tube is not huge but good enough to last a while. The scrub has no odor and is very effective and efficient at removing dead skin from your face because it has a rough texture to it compared to other scrubs. Lab Series was very mild compared to this scrub. I would like to mention that when I received my bottle of Facial scrub, the top of the tube had a hole on the end and when I would squeeze the tube, the scrub would come out of both ends of the tube.[...] I would recommend this Facial scrub to men only.
good but not the best for sensitive skin
By Muzik Man from Nashville, TN

By John from Morehead, KY

Being a guy I never realized the importance of exfoliating your face. I have been using the face scrub every other day before shaving for a month and have already noticed a clearer complexion and fewer ingrown hairs.

This is an amazing product! I am a woman with oily, acne-prone skin. I have been looking for the perfect facial scrub for several years and I have finally found it! This gel scrub gently exfoliates my skin leaving it soft, smooth, and pimple free. I use it every single day and it does not irritate my skin. My skin has never looked so healthy and clear. I will never be without this face scrub -- ever. I highly recommend this product!

This face scrub is the best product I have ever used. It leaves your skin SO soft and clean. Definitely worth every dollar. My girlfriend notices how soft my face is after every use. I also highly recommend the acne product. It not only cleared up my skin but made it healthier. I've tried every over the counter, proactive, and whatever out there and this is far the BEST. Highly recommend it to everyone.
Expensive but worth the investment.
By Noel from Denver

By Mike the Captain from Dayton, OH
on 1/8/2009 1:01:00 PM
I use this product about every other day. It's pretty necessary to use a lotion after it to keep skin from becoming so oily.
not sure if it "exfoliates"...
By Chris from LA, CA
on 12/25/2008 3:12:00 AM
after usage, my face feels smoother but i don't think there is any noticeable difference. maybe i need to use this product longer, i've only used it 2-3 times a week for 2 weeks. maybe i had too high of an expection after using advance facial lotion. now that stuff is AWESOME!!
Excellent men's facial care!
By Carlton, student from Berkeley

Shaving has become a daily joy with this product! I thought I had to treat my face hard for a manly appearance. With the micro scrub I can treat my face to a healthy wash and my face responds by looking the best it has in all my life...fresh, clean-shaven and manly!
So far so good
By Anthony from Loudoun county, VA

Makes shaving a breeze
By el diablo from Utah

Using this product prior to shaving creates the closest, smoothest, and longest lasting shaves I have ever experienced. My wife loves it how smooth my face is. Seems to extend the life of my blade as well, and, rather than an uncomfortable tearing, the blade glides over the stubble and simply seems to wipe it off. I am sold on this product.

By tonymontana from NJ
on 12/16/2008 1:12:00 PM
I have tried many other mens exfoliating scrubs but none are as good as this one. What sets it apart for me is the particle size and shape. It does not scratch or unevenly abrade my face. The viscosity of the vehicle also is perfect for moving the product over the face. It won't break down immediatly so you don't waste it or get uneven scrubs. I always use it before I shave. I have sensitive skin so I only need a light rubbing to do the job but it will get the job done if you usually need a belt sander.
By Loyal Mensciene Fan from Kansas City, MO
on 11/7/2008 2:11:00 PM
This microscrub is absolutely amazing as are the rest of your products. Menscience hands down is the best mens grooming company out of all the ones I have tried, and I have tried a lot!!! You definitely will not be disappointed with this product.
Good Scrub/Bad Container
By Ross from New Orleans, LA
on 11/4/2008 8:11:00 PM
The product is good, the container is not. It is extremely difficult to get any product out of the container, squeezing the container as current designed caused the scrub to leak out the side of the cap. As the container empties, a large amount of scrub collects at the mouth of the container and can't be taken out by squeezing the container.
How about using a tub container?
By Jiggy from Philly
on 10/29/2008 11:10:00 AM
This should be used during a shower after you wash your hair.

Product works as advertised; I use this daily on my beard area to set up a comfortable shave. I was having a problem with too close of a shave and ingrown hairs/razor burn. This product sets up a good, comfortable shave with the advanced shave formula cream.
Best scrub in the world period!

This product should win some awards! Best microscrub ever.. I use this about 4 times a week before i shave and it helps smooth out my face for a clean shave. You can really feel the scrub working when you rub it in, its much better than any other brand ive used in the past. Out of all the products ive purchased from Menscience i think this is the most impressive and thats saying alot because i find them all very impressive!

For men considering which out of a myriad of skin care products to buy, there's only one relevant question - does it work? MenScience products are consistently effective. I use their Microfine Face Scrub daily before I shave. My beard is particularly thick and I am prone to razor bumps. With this product, I am able to shave against the grain without irritation, giving myself an incredibly smooth shave. The product also buffs and brightens my complexion without drying. Very simply, it works.

The face scrub works wonders on my face each time I use it. It provides a great cleaning without being too aggressive on my face. My only complaint is that it is thick and is tough to get out of the bottle. I little annoying but the overall result is so good that I will put up with it.
Best scrub I ever used!

After I used the scrub for the first time, I notice my face looks really buffed. I like the feeling and have been using it twice a week.

I use every morning before shaving, and it definitely makes my face smoother and brighter. My skin just feels better after using it, I use this before shaving, after my shower, and the Daily Face Wash before I sleep. People have definitely seen in a difference in brightness. I have had fewer breakouts, and I do have really oily skin. Although I wish it would have helped a little more with the few dark spots I have. But still overall a very good product. I recommend it.
Visibly improve your complexion

What a phenomenal skin care product for men. My face became softer, remained moisturized, and my pores were visibly reduced. The results were quick to appear and believe me, they were impressive. I highly recommend this product to all men who are looking to improve the look, the feel, and the condition of their skin. Overall, a most excellent product.
A fantastic cleansing for your face

I have tried many expensive products out there looking for a worthy cleanser for a mans face, and this scrub leaves all of them way behind. It excels in providing gentle, effective cleansing of all dead skin cells and debris, leaving your skin fresh and clean looking, ready to be complimented by an excellent mens moisturizer.
Say goodbye to those ingrown hairs

I shave every other day and use this product in the shower after shaving. This keeps me from getting ingrown hairs and really helps my skin soak up the moisture in the shower. My fresh scrubbed face soaks up the Ultralight Advanced Skin Lotion after the shower. I also use it on my hands to keep dead skin at bay. This is the best product that Menscience makes, in my opinion, and it definitely makes you look younger right after you use it, and I'm 58 years old.
So fresh, So clean

This is a useful weapon in the menscience tool box. Exfoliating with the scrub every other day causes your skin to feel fresh and renewed, along with improving complexion, it gives you a smooth polished look.

I really like this product. It really does help exfoliate your skin and works to fight ingrown hairs. I use this product before I shave and it does help soften your skin and open up your pores for a close shave. I use this product everyday because I have to shave everyday. The only thing I don't like is the packaging. It's hard to get the product out of the hard container it comes in. I am going to continue to use this product and I will buy it again.
The only Scrub doesn't dry your face
By KC from Fairfax, VA

I also have sensitive and uneven skin. This scrub works well on my skin and I don't even use it regularly (twice a week). This is one scrub that you can rub on your face for minutes and still won't dry your skin; not to mention the smooth and revitalized skin at the very first use.

Exfoliating taking to the next level!!!!

I have tried every scrub out on the market today. I prefer a scrub that has some backbone to it. What I am saying is that I like one that you can feel working. I use it three days a week as I do not shave every day. You will get the closest shave of your life with this product. It makes unwanted black heads dissapear. One of the key features of this product is that it only takes a small amount. So a bottle of this scrub will last a while. I am an ordinary guy just like you. Marketing ploys help people make their decisions. I am hear to tell you do not fall for those and give this one a shot. You will be very glad that you did.
The Best Period!

This is a wonderful product. My wife ran out of her exfoliating cleanser and borrowed mine. She was surprised at how well it worked and how gentile it is. She only uses Men’s Science Exfoliating cleanser! She states none of the women’s high end products are as good.
• Smoothes and revitalizes the complexion, diminishing fine lines and rough areas
• Buffs away dead skin cells and dull buildup, revealing new cells for an even tone
• Deep cleans-clears impurities from within pores and combats ingrown hairs
• Softens and prepares skin for a smoother, closer shave
How to Use :
Thoroughly wet face and neck with lukewarm water.
Apply a small amount (about 1 teaspoon) with hands to face and neck area.
Massage in a light circular motion for 1-2 minutes. Avoid eye and mouth areas.
Allow Scrub to sit on face for an additional 1-2 minutes if you desire additional exfoliation.
Repeat 3-4 times a week.
Additional Tips :
• If you are not used to exfoliating your skin or have sensitive skin, reduce the amount, frequency, and time of application of product until your skin becomes accustomed to regular exfoliation.
• Leaving Microfine Face Scrub for men on face and neck for a couple of additional minutes after massaging into skin allows the active ingredients to fully penetrate and effectively deep clean and exfoliate. Once the time is up, rub the Scrub in a bit more before rinsing away.
How often should I use the Microfine Face Scrub?
Use Microfine Face Scrub for men in place of Daily Face Wash at least once and up to 4 times a week. You should adjust this frequency as it suits your skin. Use a smaller amount less frequently for sensitive or dry skin, and more for combination or oily skin.
Should I use the Daily Face Wash with the Scrub?
Because of the exfoliating and cleansing effect of Microfine Face Scrub, you don’t need to use the Daily Face Wash when you use the Scrub as this would lead to excessive exfoliation.
Which should I use to exfoliate: Microfine Face Scrub or the Face Buff Brush?
The Face Buff Brush can be used with Daily Face Wash to gently get rid of grime and debris and lift up hairs to prep your skin for a close shave. Microfine Face Scrub contains physical and biological exfoliants, which provide a higher level of exfoliation and pore cleansing.
Does Glycolic and Salicylic Acids (BHA and AHA) make your skin more sensitive to the sun?
AHA and BHA are used by dermatologist for their abilities to help remove the top layer of dead skin cells and organic buildup for a smoother, fresher appearance. When the dead layers of cells are removed, healthy, new cells are uncovered from underneath. Because the new cells are more sensitive and susceptible to sunburns, it’s important to keep exfoliated skin well-protected with TiO2 Sunblock SPF 30. Exfoliating your skin actually promotes a more even tan later on, but make sure to wait a few days before you catch some rays.
What is exfoliation? What are its benefits?
Exfoliation is the accelerated shedding of the upper, dead layers of the skin. It is highly effective at improving the skin’s smoothness and tone, reducing the appearance of fine lines and revealing newer skin underneath. It is critical in the management of acne, ingrown hairs, dandruff and complications precipitated by accumulation of dead cells.
Used by dermatologists and skin care professionals to gently shed upper layers of the skin, leading to smoother, softer skin, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, dry patches and dark spots. Encourages the production of new skin cells for a fresh, healthy complexion.
Salicylic Acid (BHA)
Powerful professional ingredient prescribed by doctors and skin care professionals for treatment of acne, ingrown hairs, and dandruff, and combating signs of aging. Has penetrating, exfoliating, antibacterial and moisturizing properties. Helps prevent pore-clogging, refine skin texture and remove oily dead organic matter. Also known as a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA).
Superior anti-irritant and soothing agent of botanical origin. Specially appropriate for sensitive, irritated or stressed skin. Used in small concentrations due to active properties.
Aloe Vera Extract (Aloe barbadensis)
Well-recognized moisturizing, healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Used in formulations for sensitive or stressed skin. Obtained from aloe vera plant.
Moisturizer capable of attracting and retaining water. Helps in the absorption of other ingredients. Credited with protecting the skin, due to buffering and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
