This scrub is an effective intense exfoliant and leaves a moisturing oily residue afterwards. The activated charcoal can stain a white tub if left on there, so make sure to rinse it down. I tried this on my face, but I have sensitive, oily facial skin and this irritated it. However, I use it 1-2 times per week on my arms, thighs and booty and have found it to be a great way to exfoliate & moisturize those areas! Keep it mind that the salt could smart if applied to any open cut, like any exfoliant.
