I use a lactic acid product on my skin sometimes, so I can't use any harsh exfoliators. This stuff is absolutely perfect! I can use it daily without it feeling like its stripping my face. I also sometimes use it on my elbows, hands, etc. Its a really amazing product. And just like all other Good Medicine products, a little goes a long way.
SAND / red mineral polish

This beautiful head-to-toe mineral polish uses the ancient cleansing powers of wildharvested yucca root, naturally rich in saponins (natural surfactant and emulsifier) to melt away dead skin cells. Its gentle but effective exfoliation actions tightens and tones, while maintaining the skin's delicate pH balance. Combined with tiny desert crystallized minerals, this vitamin-rich creamy compound reveals smooth, soft, enlivened skin without scratching or damaging cells.

Crystalline particles of sand, fallen from towering red cliffs high above the desert floor, polish the skin to a smooth, lustrous shine. Yucca Root, used by desert Natives for shimmering, healthy hair, has a lively sudsing action that leaves no dull soapy film nor depletes the precious moisture within.
How To Indulge
Sand is gentle enough to use every day on your face and you entire body. Simply moisten the hands with water and rub them together with a dab of sand, changing the compact cream into a soft, smooth lotion. Brush lightly in gentle circular motions. Rinse until completely removed from the skin.

I have been using sand for a few years now. It is part of my morning ritual. I add a teaspoon full to a warm wet washcloth, sprinkle a teaspoon of ashes on top and sprinkle with water from my fingertips. I massage the washcloth until the consistency is creamy. Then, I hold the washcloth to my face and inhale deeply. The scent is heavenly. I then massage my face with the creamy texture and leave it on for a few minutes while I gently scrub the rest of me. A little bit goes a long way. It is my personal slice of morning heaven before heading off for the day!
When I see "gentle but effective" used to describe an exfoliating product, I scoff at the idea that it's a useful product. I became very accustomed to more harsh exfoliants over the years. Even last night, my mind kept telling me that it wasn't going to be exfoliating enough. Alas, Sand continues to prove me wrong. My skin is so soft after using this product- exfoliated and moisturized, not abrasively stripped. The mixology skincare is just in a league of its own.
I really enjoy using this product. It is very gentle on the skin and washes away easily. I have dry red patches that just appear and this does not seem to irritate them. The amount you receive justifies the price. This will last me a long time. I just use it on my face once or twice a week.
I have tired many exfoliators for face and body, but I love this one the best! One thing that stands out is the product itself. It does the job of exfoliating with the sand grains and it also gives you just the right amount of moisturizer all without leaving a huge mess in the shower. I also love mixing it with ashes and water and it becomes a creamy mousse.
This is a perfect exfoliant, gentle. Red sand, like taking a swim in the Escalante.
As the jar is opened, one is immediately awakened by the comforting aroma of earth. The sands, botanical extracts, and honey do an excellent job of soft exfoliation, cleansing, and hydration.
I love to use this product on my face (which is dry upon application to maximize the exfoliating effect). My skin is so smooth after use * the smell is heavenly * and the product leaves no greasy residue, washing completely clean upon removal. LOVE
I use this about twice a week. My skin feels like NEW every time I use it. I use to have little bumps on my upper arms, and now they are gone. Best body polisher out there!
