Should have heeded the reviews

Definitely not what I was expecting from pumice. I can feel just the slightest grit when rubbing between my fingers, but otherwise it's very soft and fine. I was looking for something a little more aggressive than this for a super-scrubby soap. It's good for a very, very mild exfoliation if you have sensitive skin.

Hi Jennifer! I'm sorry this product wasn't what you were expecting. You're right, our pumice is a more mild exfoliant and is best for more gentle formulas. If you're looking for more aggressive exfoliants, I would recommend either the Walnut Shells (medium) or Cranberry Seeds (large). Learn more about the different exfoliants in our All About Exfoliants blog post.

Very disappointing

Unfortunately, this is not what I needed or expected when I ordered pumice. It is in no way gritty or abrasive. I added 1/3c. per pound of soap and it offers no exfoliation at all =(

Hi there! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this product. We love the gentle exfoliation our pumice provides, though it is a pretty fine powder unlike the abrasiveness of a pumice stone. For a more noticeable exfoliant you may prefer the Shredded Loofah or Walnut Shells. We used the pumice with poppy seeds to bump up the exfoliation in our Pumice & Poppy Seed Melt and Pour Tutorial.

Bring back the old version

This is more like a flour than an exfoliate. I make face wash for my husband and me and we both agree we like the older version better which had more abrasive scrubbing power.

Hi Maria! I'm sorry you were disappointed in the exfoliation with this product. We love the Pumice, though it is a pretty gentle exfoliant - it even adds a little silkiness to soap. If you're looking for a rougher exfoliant you may like Cranberry Seeds, Walnut Shells, or Ground Pumpkin Seeds.

Way too fine

Got the for a gardener soap and it offered no exfoliation whatsoever, even after more than doubling the suggested usage... glad I put some strawberry seeds in it!

A bit too fine

I tried this pumice in a foot scrub for the first time, and didn't feel that it was course enough to provide good exfoliation. It would be nice to see a similar product that is a bit courser.

Hi Jennifer! I'm sorry this exfoliant was too fine for you. We love Pumice and the gentle exfoliation it provides. For a coarser exfoliant you may like Cranberry Seeds or the Shredded Loofah. Check out our Cranberry Seed Foot Scrub tutorial for some inspiration!
