Strongest points
Very scrubby
Weakest points
Feels too harsh on my skin
Summary
I have dry skin and Espa recommend people with dry skin use this two to three times a week but it feels too harsh to do this. It feels like rubbing sandpaper on your face. It is not a spa-like experience more like torture. The beads are so small they feel like the finest sand and the surrounding product is supposed to nourish. I suppose my skin doesn't feel tight after use. Equally though, usually after using a scrub I can feel the results, my skin feels smooth and product applies easier. This isn't the case. Even though it really feels like it's working well, I can't get good results.

Summary
ESPA isn't my natural first choice, not because I dislike the products but until recently I really didn't come across them. I've been using some of their products for about four months and I'm very impressed with the packaging and the quality of their products (but less so the price). This one has a medicinal scent which really does smell like an exfoliator (I'm not exactly sure why: it's probably the familiarity to other exfoliators). The texture is creamy but with a definite particle feel and on your skin it's gentle but definitely there. Easy to use and easy to remove. Not harsh and just marginal for my skin but nice and works well. Too pricy for me in everyday use but nice enough.
