Application: Squeeze a tiny amount and add some warm water to create foam and in circular motions all over the body

Results: I use this after washing myself with the living nature soap, on damp skin it easy foamed well, the natural diatomaceous earth felt like soft sand against my skin. I use to hate the smell of sandalwood but I’ve grown to love the musky smell. The gel formula was very easy to lather and I was left with a nice glow, I did expect more exfoliation but it did the job. Using this product once a week I had plenty left in the tube, this will be suitable to all skin types. What I love about A’kin is the ingredients they use; they choose rich, vegan, and 100% natural.
