Volcanic exfoliating face wash.

Love this product, gentle yet thorough. Once per week does the trick, just like the label recommends.

soft skin

I use my Bio Exfoliator once or twice a week. It has been great. This is my second purchase. My daughter brought the first one home from visiting Iceland. I was very surprised how it makes my skin so soft the next morning. Highly recommend the product.

My favorite scrub of all time

This is my favorite exfoliator of all time. I've tried many (both expensive and inexpensive) and was never satisfied. Either they were way too harsh or the scrub was way too soft and I felt it wasn't doing anything. I love this product because it is the best of both worlds - feels like it is exfoliating my skin and it's gentle at the same time.

Bottom line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Definitely a solid exfoliator

I have heard some exfoliators are too harsh on your skin so I wanted to try one that I knew used natural ingredients and wouldn't leave my skin feeling rough. This made my skin feel super smooth, I was actually surprised at how nice it felt. Not for everyday use but I now use once a week for a skin pick me up. Only complaint is I wish the product was a bit bigger but you don't need much so it does last a good amount of time.

Bottom line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
