Product Review: Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub

Physical and chemical exfoliating products have a place in my skincare arsenal for different reasons. My heavy retinol use inevitably means dry, flaky skin on a regular basis. The only scrub that sloughs away the flaky bits is a heavy-duty physical scrub. St. Ives Apricot Scrub may come to mind. It’s cheap, and I do like it for my body but I would never use it on my face. The particles are too large and sharp, and I imagine a thousand microscoptic cuts.

Instead, I prefer an intense yet very fine exfoliator that buffs way my patches of dry skin. I’ve used Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub for years. It has secured a place in my Top 5 best physical exfoliators.

Doctor’s Scrub

What it claims to do?
“Improves the tone and texture for brighter, younger-looking skin. Infused with ruby crystals, this face scrub gently polishes away dead skin cells and encourages skin renewal to reduce the appearance of fine lines, large pores and age spots.”

Do I agree?
Yes. My aesthetician always reaches for a micro-scrub when I show up for a facial with flaky skin. It’s the best way to improve and brighten dull skin not to mention removing dead skin allows other key ingredients in serums and moisturizers to penetrate deeper into the skin. Imagine pouring water over dry, cracked desert. It will sit on top rather than sink into the ground.

Doctor’s Scrub will sandblast your face without scratching the skin or leave it feeling dry and tight. My skin feels soft and moisturized due to the Jojoba Oil.

How I use it?
I use this morning and evening as needed if I’m seeing the flaky effects of retinol. However, generally, I use physical exfoliators in the morning and chemical ones in the evening. Buffing my skin in the morning helps me to wake up, and my makeup application looks better.

How much does it cost?
$75. One jar lasts me about three months.
