Epice Purifying Exfoliant Review

Epice says their Purifying Exfoliant is a "unique exfoliant which removes excess dirt and dead skin cells all while activating collagen production and hydrating your skin. This moisture rich formula utilizes mild, non-irritating and anti-bacterial cleansers with micro-fine polyspheres which enhances skin texture and clarity for a clean, fresh appearance. Purifying Exfoliant is also great to use on the entire body and after just a few uses, you will begin to see improvement in the look and feel of your skin."  Epice offers two sizes of this scrub - the full size contains 3.3 oz and sell for $32; a 1 oz travel size is also available for $5. I received the latter in an Ipsy Bag. All Epice product are cruelty free and vegan friendly. 

Epice's travel sized Purifying Exfoliant comes in a white squeeze tube. The brand logo and product name are printed on the front of the tube; some directions can be found on the back. The full sized product is packaged differently, in a bottle with a pump. Unfortunately, packaging doesn't seem to be recyclable.

Epice's Purifying Exfoliant is a white, creamy but gritty scrub - super similar to Vasanti' s Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator in all ways! I loved that scrub, and I really like this on too. This non-foaming exfoliator has very fine granules that provide gentle but effective manual exfoliation. I've been using Epice's scrub twice a week for about six weeks and each time it leaves my complexion soft, smooth, and little bit glowy. While Epice's Purifying Exfoliant contains several beneficial ingredients, it also has some less than stellar components - like fragrance and citrus oils. Though this face scrub is fragranced, it is very mild and barely noticeable.

Epice's Purifying Exfoliant is nice. This scrub is gentle but it gets the job done; it sloughs away dead skin without being harsh or irritating. This is a great scrub if you're looking for a smooth complexion. That being said, I don't think I'd shell out $30+ for it. If I were to drop that kind of a cash on a face scrub, I'd probably go for Vasanti's option, which I prefer slightly.
