Size: 1.5 oz

Skin Type Combination, Dry, Normal, and Oily
Skin Goals Acne-Clearing, Anti-Aging, Brightening, Calming, Detoxifying, and Sensitive-Safe
  • Gently dissolves dead skin
  • Physical and enzymze exfoliation, combined
  • Honey and oils soothe and hydrate
Later, old skin (and toxins)

This resurfacing treatment clears, softens, and renews skin. Rejuvenation, times two: physical and enzyme exfoliation combine to regenerate the skin’s outer layer. Walnut shells stir up dead skin cells, while papaya enzymes dissolve them, letting restorative oils and honey soak in so skin holds onto hydration. This dual-action exfoliant delivers results that are visibly better than either method alone.

Gently apply in circles to clean skin. Let set for 10 minutes to an hour, then rinse and pat dry.


Ideal for acneic skin that may find harsh physical exfoliants irritating.

Customer Reviews

  • kind of "meh"

    Jessie November 22, 2021

    Based on the reviews, I had high expectations for this product. But after months of using as directed I did not observe the acne clearing and calming properties that I’d anticipated. I have realistic expectations of skin care products, noting is going to but there was absolutely no difference in my skin after using it weekly for 6 + months.

    • From Follain:

      Thank you for your review and feedback, Jessie! We are sorry that the Active Enzyme Exfoliator was not a match for you and glad our Customer Service team was able to help you so that you can find a better match for your skin.

      xo, Follain

  • Great product!

    Catherine B. April 08, 2021

    This is the best exfoliant I have ever used. It works very well and does not irritate my very sensitive skin. I will buy it again.

  • Good but the smell

    Kristen December 21, 2020

    I really like the way this makes my skin feel, but the smell is almost unbreable to me. I’m not sure if it’s just me or maybe my particular pot, but I can barely stomach the smell.

    This mask is a staple in my routine! If you want that natural glow like Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Mask is known for with a sensative-skin safe exfoliant this is for you! I have combo, sensitive skin and this never makes my skin red or irritated, just incredibly soft. This is my favorite way to spend sunday night. It feels like a textured honey and it does wonders for my skin. A+ in my book!

    Hail I. February 23, 2020

    This mask is amazing! I’ve been using it for months now and I am so impressed with the results. Although I was hesitant because of the physical exfoliants in this mask, they are not too harsh on the dry spots on my skin. The mask smells great and is not too messy. It clears me of my small blemishes and makes a signifant impact on the bigger ones as well. My skin feels incredibly soft and smooth afterward and I look like I’m glowing all through the night and for up to two days afterwards. I always use it the day before a big event. Thanks!!!

  • Love Josh; love this mask!

    Laura L. October 07, 2019

    This mask SERIOUSLY regenerates my combo (pimples here and there) skin!!!! Its like wiping a clean slate. Ahhhhmazing! Josh is such a sweet person as well and gives good skin & hair advice!

  • Wonderful exfoliator!

    Trina September 05, 2019

    This exfoliator has helped me so much with dry patches of skin and making my skin feel soft. I was having difficulty wearing foundation because my skin would get flaky but since using this exfoliator my foundation has been smooth all day!

  • Gentle Exfoliator

    Queta August 25, 2019

    I have sensitive skin and I was pleasantly pleased to see my skin approve. I’ve been searching for an exfoliator that doesn’t react with my skin and seems I’ve found the one. Ultra smooth skin is what you get with this product with no added irritations.

  • Makes my skin baby soft

    Megan P. July 27, 2019

    I love this mask. I’m a big fan of physical exfoliaters and when this mask is washed off, your skin is left so smooth and soft. A visible and touchable difference.

  • Great exfoliator

    Rachel H. July 12, 2019

    Can be a little messy so I use in the shower. It works wonderfully as a mask too!

  • Amazing exfoliator

    Colleen T. July 03, 2019

    Well worth the price. I have cyst acne that can be triggered by bacteria getting trapped under dry skin. I’ve been using this exfoliator once a week for a month now, and have had no breakouts. My skin is baby bottom soft. Love it. And it will last for a long time, so it was definitely worth the $65.

  • All Time Favorite Mask

    Kayley N. April 18, 2019

    I love love LOVE this mask! It’s incredibly effective at gently exfoliating the skin. I apply and leave it on for 45-60 minutes before gently rubbing off in the shower. My skin is perfection afterward! It leaves my skin smooth and not stripped. I use this mask once a month because it’s that good at what it does. Worth every penny!

  • Effective without being harsh

    Beth E. December 14, 2018

    I love a good exfoliator like this that leaves you feeling clean and refreshed. As other reviews mention, it is not the best smelling. But when you wash it away, skin feels rejuvinated. I use it once a week, spend about a minute rubbing it in when I first apply and leave it on as a mask for a while, then wash off. My skin can be sensitive, but I have had no reactions or extra dryness from this product.

  • Visible difference every time!

    Ellen S. December 13, 2018

    I love love love this product! I have significant acne (fresh breakouts and old scars) and this is the first product I have found that gives me a visible difference after each use! My skin glows and swelling is reduced on fresh blemishes. I use it all over my face and down onto my neck and leave it on for at least 45 minutes. The only downside to this product… it’s pretty expensive, so I try to use it only once a week to make it last.

  • Helping with adult acne

    Zully H. November 27, 2018

    I have recently had many breakouts in my forehead area which I’ve never had before. I ordered this because I also noticed a lot of black heads and wanted an exfoliator that would get all that excess dirt out. I’ve had this for a few weeks and it has definitely helped in cleaning my face but it tends to make my face slightly oily after I use it. So far it’s getting the job done and I’m hoping that it will help clear and stop new breakouts!!!

  • Great exfoliator for dry skin!

    Lauren B. October 31, 2018

    This mask is a real treat! I have dry skin and need to exfoliate pretty regularly. I really like that this mask has both a manual exfoliant and an enzyme exfoliate so that my skin looks and feels smoother and brighter after using it. Not too harsh, and really gets the job done.

  • Great skin polisher

    Madeline T. September 04, 2018

    After using this product my skin feels polished, clean, and fresh

  • Exfoliator and mask in one!

    Rachel M. September 04, 2018

    Love the feelings of both the enzyme and physical exfoliants and that I can leave it on for as long as I want after massaging it in the my skin (10 minutes to and hour!). Sloughs off all the build up in my skin but leaves its it soft and hydrated after rinsing off.

  • Favorite exfoliant!!

    Julia August 30, 2018

    I love this exfoliant because I can wash it right off or leave it on as a mask and it works well either way. It feels great to use after working out or being at the beach to get all that excess dirt off. It makes a bit of a mess in the sink but I think its totally worth it!

  • Works okay but I really don't like the smell

    Meredith M. August 23, 2018

    My skin looked better, fresher after I used this exfoliator, but I felt like I smelled like a salad afterward. Very strong parsley or cilantro scent. I prefer the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask.

  • Leaves your face feeling so smooth!

    Megan L. August 08, 2018

    I don’t have a lot of experience with exfoliators or face masks but I love this product as both! It’s great to use when your skin is feeling dull or experiencing breakouts and you need a refresh. It leaves your skin feeling very soft and smooth. My only negative is that it can be a little messy when you’re rinsing off – but I’m sure that is to be expected.

  • love love love

    Magdalena S. December 30, 2017

    love this product…makes my skin soft and smooth. I like that its not abrasive and does not dry out my skin. Even my teenage son likes it.

  • Exfoliate.

    Indu S. October 01, 2017

    This product does what it says it does, and that’s why I use it. It smells earthy and makes my skin feel healthy, as a good exfoliant should. Weekly use for me.

  • Did I walk out of a spa?

    Hanna S. September 29, 2017

    I felt like I came out of a facial spa whenever I used this exfoliator. I usually applied on for about 15-30minutes and jump into shower. It smells earthy and healthy even, and keeps your face smooth once you wash off the product. I would recommend this item for someone who wants a dramatic smoothness on your skin.

  • Good but not great

    Maggie S. September 28, 2017

    This was recommended to me by Follain for my milia-prone skin. It makes your skin softer, but I do not recommend it for sensitive skin and I didn’t notice it helping with breakouts.

  • leaves your skin feeling like butter

    Isabel B. September 28, 2017

    I am a big fan of the enzyme exfoliator. I have extremely dry and sensitive skin and this seems to be the only exfoliator that doesn’t make my skin burn. It’s gentle enough that I can use it 2x a week but typically only use it once a week. I like to use exfoliators, like this one, with little some texture, so it actually feels like you are cleaning your skin. This product always leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean and does not overdry.

  • Amamzing exfoliator, Amazing Mask

    Mallory N. September 28, 2017

    This product is great because it doubles as an exfoliator and a mask. If I am in a crunch and feel grimy I will use as an exfoliator to get rid of grim and fresh my skin. If I feel like having a little relaxation time I will let it sit on my face for 10-15 minutes. It doesn’t dry like a typical mask, therefore it doesn’t leave you feeling tight and begging for moisturizer. Incredible product!

  • great exfoliator!

    Trudi K. September 28, 2017

    i have acne and sensitive skin and this does a wonderful job as a weekly exfoliator. highly recommend!

  • Fantastic Exfoliator

    Kate M. September 28, 2017

    This is my first Josh Rosebrook product and I really like it. I’ve been using it for about a week and have used it as both a mask as well as a scrub in the shower (on face, neck, chest) when I don’t have time for a mask. My skin is so smooth and soft after I use it, it’s amazing. I’ve also used this as an exfoliator followed by the India Lee clearing mask for a double-duty blackhead busting session and they pair really well together. Love this!

  • Wonderful exfoliating mask

    Madeline T. September 28, 2017

    I try to use this 1-2 times a week to help exfoliate my skin that tends to be quite congested especially during the summer months. This really works to polish my skin; I love it!

  • Instant results!

    Caitlin November 21, 2016

    I tried a sample of this product and the next day rushed back to the shop to buy it, because it worked that quickly. My skin felt so smooth. I highly recommend it!

  • Sensitive Skin Savior

    Regina August 10, 2016

    I’ve been on the hunt for an exfoliator to replace overnight AHA treatments I’ve used in the past that leave my skin silky smooth but with some questionable ingredients. I thought I’d give this one a go since Josh Rosebrook products never disappoint. Thankfully, this enzyme exfoliator is no exception to the rule! Gentle grains get rid of superficial dry patches while the enzymes eat away dull layers of skin without irritating my skin. My skin feels fresh and looks glowy and healthy immediately after using and for days after. I also love the inclusion of potent detoxing ingredients like turmeric and neem.
