Have seen it but unfortunately w/my sensitive skin I can't use it. I tried the Oil of Olay polishing kit and man did I ever regret it. I broke out BAAAD and it really was harsh on my skin. But of course the fav. cuzn used it and loved it w/no reactions whatsoever.

Be very careful with anything that states "polish". If the polishing agent is too course or abrasive it can scratch the surface of the epidermis and cause irritation. Bacteria can setup and bam.......a nasty breakout!

Hummm, I hope your not in a profession that deals with skin care becuase your not suppose to scrub your face hard with anything. It's not my skin but my education and experience tells me that you should be very careful with anything that states "polish". I guess that is why some of us are professionals and some aren't, thank goodness for this website love, I bet you learn a lot on here.

As a Medical Licensed Aesthetician, I know that aggressively scrubbing granules into your skin CAN make your pores larger and can scratch the surface of the skin, etc. This is not what we want. If you are doing your own exfoliation, especially for the face - do so gently with a product that has fine milled granules and this way you can use the product on a regular basis to renew the skin without harming it whatsoever.

Oh, by the way... I stumbled on to this forum. You all are a great bunch of people and very knowledgeable! ..........April

I really like this product. Ive been using it for two years. Im 48 and have really good skin, which I partly attribute to this product. I only use it about 2 or 3 times a week. To prevent any irritation or "break outs", I wash with an antibacterial soap immediately after use. I'm nearly out and am looking for a store that carries it. I last bought it online but found the shipping charges to be rediculous. Anyone know where I can get it? My local Walgreens doesn't carry it. (
