Product Description

A twist-up, 3-in-1 facial cleansing stick.

  • Diatomaceous earth microexfoliants: fossilized sea algae that absorb surface oil and toxins while acting as a gentle exfoliant

Product performance: Get your quick frxxxtion fix with this 3-in-1 exfoliator, cleanser and face mask all in one portable, solid-to-suds stick. With a clarifying cleansing gel powered by the Rainforest of the Sea™ complex and suspended diatomaceous earth microexfoliants, the vegan friendly formula draws out surface oil and reduces shine, while purifying pores for the deepest clean possible. The hypoallergenic gel stick gently sloughs away dead surface cells and polishes skin as it cleanses to fight dullness and pump up the radiance. Great for all skin types, it can be used on a regular basis without stripping skin’s moisture or left on as a treatment mask to absorb toxins and reveal smooth, sexy, glowing skin. Ideal for the on-the-go gal, this travel friendly cleanser features a targeted, straight-to-skin applicator that can be massaged directly onto the face so you can get dirty and then sparkle clean all in one frxxxtion fix.

I originally had the Frxxxtion stick in a little $12 skin set that I bought in Sephora (at one of the little tempting set ups that they have by the register that makes you want to buy everything in line). I let the package sit for months before I even opened it (shane on me)! The package contained a Frxxxtion stick, mini travel size deep dive cleansing gel, Travwl size ROS 4-in-1 mist, and travel size drink of H20, and a pink scrubbie. I could be getting my packages mixed up, and I either had two packages with three items each, or one with all of these items. Either way, I tried Frxxxtion stick from it and fell in love! I told myself that I wasn't going to like it much and that it would probably just be a basic stick of charcoal and wouldn't do much for my skin, but I was so wrong! Honestly, the travel size stick lasted me for a couple of weeks (I only used it three times a week and didn't apply a lot so this could be why). But when I ran out of it, I immediately ran to Sephora and purchased a full version. The full version has lasted me since the beginning of the summer, and I am impressed with it. It leaves me skin feeling extremely clean and exfoliated. Sometimes I'll use it as a quick wash, and other times I'll leave it on for a few minutes and refresh my dog's water bowl, or something else random- treating it like a mini mask. Sometimes I'll even use the pink scrubbie with it for extra exfoliation if I had a heavy makeup day; but I usually avoid this method to avoid over exfoliation because the stick exfoliates plenty on its own! What I love about the stick is that it makes washing your face so convenient; you can really target specific areas, and you can control how much/little product you use and exactly where you'll put it. I definitely recommend this as anyone's face routine. I will continue to purchase this product.

This is by far my favorite exfoliating product on the market! I have always had a major problem with black heads especially on my chin. I bought the full-size product to try and this product did not disappoint! I have combination skin that is very sensitive but this product was not harsh on my skin at all. The first time I used this product I did feel a little irritation because this exfoliating cleanser does a great job and gets deep into the pores and clears any black heads. After using this product, I finish off with Mario Badescu toner. The two are a perfect duo to combat black heads! When I was applying the toner, I could physically see little black heads on the cotton round. As always Tarte, you nailed it!

First, on the product, it's amazing. I love that I can apply a scrub in stick form right to my skin. The exfoliant grains are small so they are not that harsh on the skin but still get the job done. I also love that this also works well as a cleanser as it foams up a little. 

My problem is the tube. I have had two of these so far and the exfoliator part keeps falling out of the tube. So as I'm applying the product it will pop out of the tube and fall into my sink. It's quite irritating.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this cleansing stick. The only reason I didn't buy it again was that I have far too many cleansers as is. I love the gritty texture of the stick - it gently exfoliates the skin leaving it soft. It's non-drying (from someone who has relatively normal skin). It's super easy to use and doesn't cause too big of a mess.

Pro-tip: dampen your face just a little then rub the stick in in a circular motion. Then massage and rinse off, you'll love it.

L O V E this. I'm on my fourth repurchase of this. 4 stars because of how little product there is, and how much is stuck in the packaging and unusable at the end :( However, this is so good. I use it 3x a week, the exfoliating bits aren't too harsh and aren't bad for the environment, and it clears my skin up after the initial purge. I have combo/oily skin and use this in combo with Lush's dark angels, its great.

I LOVE this stuff! It’s magical and if it wasn’t so expensive it would be a holy grail item. It is perfect to exfoliate my sensitive skin and I feel like it does such a good job of cleaning all the dirt out of my pores and skin. My skin *glows* after I use this stuff. The only thing is that I go through these so fast that it’s not worth it for me even if I do love the results. If anyone has a dupe I’m all ears!

I received this stick in a set with the Deep Dive Gel Cleanser and a silicone face scrubber and I loved it! I used it almost daily and it was gentle enough that it didn't irritate my skin. I love that one product can cleanse, exfoliate and work as a mask. And it isn't overly drying. I've already gone through multiples in 8 months or so since I first discovered it.

Not only is this a great exfoliator that leaves my skin feeling baby soft, but I LOVE the fact that It’s so easy to use and there’s no need to put it on my hands. I’ve taken this on multiple trips as it’s very travel-friendly and doesn’t take up a lot of time if i’m in a rush! It can tend to dry my skin out a bit if used too much so just be cautious!

I'm really interested in this. Does it work well? Is it messy at all? It seems like it'd be a little more convenient than a powder exfoliator.
