Just add water to this powder-to-mousse formula that snaps and crackles as Vitamin C magically activates, then brightens and regenerates. Healthy exfoliants deliver micro-dermabrasion results, toxin-free.

Every 2-3 days, activate one teaspoon powder with slightly less than the same amount of water to form a mousse; massage gently into skin and rinse.

  • LOVE! Great for sensitive skin!

    Fallon R. September 17, 2019

    I have sensitive, easily red skin. This is an amazing and gentle exfoliant, no breakouts or irritation!

  • Great Exfoliater

    Joann S. December 12, 2018

    Love this product! I rotate between this and the OSEA ocean cleanser.

  • Love

    Lara O. November 06, 2018

    Wow! I love this scrub. It took a little bit of practice mixing the right proportions of water to powder but, once I got it right it was amazing.

  • Stay with it...

    Morgan September 04, 2018

    The Clean Dirt and I have a love/hate relationship because getting the consistency correct is absolutely key. Make sure you have a foaming, crackling (yes. Crackling) mousse like texture. It’s an amazing cleanser/exfoliant. I am extremely dry and this doesn’t dry me out. You can feel the good stuff sinking into your skin. For an extra treat mix with the honey mud…Heaven!

  • new favorite exfoliant.

    Pnwonderland September 02, 2018

    i’ve used the clean dirt twice now and i am a convert. i love the whole process of turning the powder into a rich, lofty mousse. once it dries and i wash it off, i’m left with the softest, smoothest skin ever. it’s definitely going into regular rotation in my routine.

  • Amazing exfoliation treatment

    Olivia B. August 31, 2018

    This exfoliator is such a treat. It smells amazing and it’s fun to watch the powder foam up into a mousey texture when I add water to it. I have dry, rough skin and this does a great job softening my skin while also evening out my skin tone and keeping any breakouts at bay. When I have any active breakouts or my skin is super irritated I like to mix this with the honey mud for a gentler exfoliation. I look forward to the nights I get to use this yummy powder.

  • A beautiful exfoliating experience

    Lauren B. August 29, 2018

    This exfoliating treatment is phenomenal. It smells like chia tea. It turns into a beautiful whipped consistency when mixed with water. Great for any skin type (I have dry skin). This exfoliator does have some grit to it, but not so much that it feels harsh. I used this and my skin felt so smooth. The next morning I also noticed that my blemishes from the night before were gone. Magic? I’m sold.

  • A great brightener

    Tiffany B. August 28, 2018

    The Clean Dirt is an amazing brightener and exfoliator. It can take a few tries to get the ratio of product and water correct, but once you do you are rewarded with a beautiful mousse. May recommends rinsing this off in the shower and I couldn’t agree more. It can be a bit messy, so rinsing off in the shower makes sure you don’t get the product all over your sink.

  • Cleansing

    Susan N. August 01, 2018

    You can feel Clean Dirt working the moment you put it on your skin. I have sensitive skin and have had no reaction to this product. Your skin feels clean and fresh after using this product.

  • Spa Day

    Holly K. March 16, 2018

    This exfoliator is simply wonderful. At first I was alittle skeptical about the price, but this product does alot more than exfoliate. I have very sensitive skin that will break out if I exfoliate too harshly, but this product really does wonders to resurface and reduce redness and restore balance to skin.

  • Sensory rich Exfoliation

    Emma H. March 01, 2018

    This is a big time WOW product. In a very short time I have become a big fan of May Lindstrom’s products but this one is definitely my favorite. It smells like a warm up of spiced chai tea, and fizzles when you start to add in water almost like a bath bomb. It exfoliates your skin and provides a slight warming tingling sensation. Afterward, my skin feels the softest any product has ever made it feel. It somehow does better than your typical particle exfoliator. I am really loving this and plan to make it a regular in my routine- that is if I ever run out- bottle was way bigger than expected and I think its going to last a very long time!

  • Tried all the May Lindstrom products...this is my favorite

    Lauren B. February 13, 2018

    I love Blue Cocoon and The Honey Mud, but this Clean Dirt is literally unlike any other product. I have super sensitive/reactive skin and this is one of the only exfoliators I’ve ever used that did a great job at cleaning skin and NOT making it red and irritated. Worth the price and then some!

  • Excellent exfoliator/cleanser

    Alex C. January 23, 2018

    I love the Clean Dirt. I like to use it in the morning after cleansing with a gentle cleanser or The Pendulum Potion. It smells amazing and is a bit tingly on the skin. I rub it on dry skin, the wet my fingers to massage even more. Then, I apply a little bit of the Honey Mud and scrub some more. I let the mixture dry on my face and wash off in the shower. My skin is soft and glowing afterwards. I use it about 2 times per week.

  • tingly smoothness

    Jacqueline A. October 01, 2017

    i use this twice a week as an exfoliator and my skin has never been so soft and smooth. while you are scrubbing with it, it gives a little heat and tingle which i think wakes up my skin a little. i just feel glowier after i use this. and it smells like a cozy chai latte.

  • So refreshing and fluffy

    Laura F. September 29, 2017

    This is a great one, and I’m now very interested in trying other similar May Lindstrom products. It’s a super-fine, warm, gentle exfoliant. For some reason, it does tend to leave behind a bit of thick residue that I am still trying to figure out how best to remove without aggressively scrubbing after the nice exfoliation.

  • Wakes up my face!

    Sara N. September 28, 2017

    I love using this exfoliator in the morning because it feels nice and tingly on my skin, and it smells like a gingerbread cookie. Talk about a nice way to wake up! It also makes my skin feel so soft afterward. I like that I can decide how much of the powder to use to make it more or less exfoliating. Plus it’s extremely easy to put some in a small container when you’re traveling.

  • Soft and glowy

    Olivia December 16, 2016

    I’ve been using this every other day (give or take) for the last week in the morning to replace my regular cleanser and the results are so beautiful. I live in Boston and the winter is starting to get bitter, leaving my skin in serious need of something to scrub off flaky skin.

    My skin is never softer to the touch after using this. I’m so glowy after. Very impressed with this product and excited to try more from May Lindstrom. I have sensitive AND acne prone skin and this hasn’t caused any breakouts or irritated me.

  • my go-to exfoliant

    Alyse S. January 31, 2016

    I purchased the Clean Dirt last spring and, while I enjoyed it, I found it a bit too drying for my skin type (dry + sensitive) so it retreated to the back of my skincare drawer. Fast forward to this fall/winter when my skin has desperately needed regular exfoliation, so I decided to try blending the Clean Dirt with some raw honey and using that as a face scrub. It’s been a game changer for me! I use this every other day with a small dollop of honey and a few drops of water and apply to my face in the shower. The honey softens it a bit for my dry skin but I still get plenty of exfoliation and the spices and vitamin C in this give my skin the most lovely glow. I cannot imagine my skincare routine without this product!

  • Great gateway product to May Lindstrom's line

    Ru April 10, 2015

    I use this as an exfoliant than a cleanser, and it doubles up as a mask too. It has a similar spice cookie scent like the problem solver mask. I love that it sizzles into a mousse-like texture when you add water, and the granules are not to harsh on the skin. Sensitive/reactive skin types might want to avoid this though.

  • My Favorite Product at Follain

    Floyd M. February 20, 2015

    Hands down, this is the best product I have ever used for my face. I love to exfoliate and I love that feeling of a fresh cleaned face, but exfoliating all the time leaves me reddened and sometimes encourages my skin to break out. This is the first (and only) daily exfoliant I use every night that doesn’t make my skin red or leaves my face feeling raw. The salt and clay feel great and the smell of cinnamon is hard not to love. Moreover, the calendula and marshmallow are soothing and work in combination to leave the freshly exfoliated skin calmed and soothed. Also, while the ingredients are easy to find, the proportion is impossible to replicate. Her sourcing is done so well, so don’t expect to run to Whole Foods, buy the ingredients, and have the same experience. (Side note: I have thicker, oilier skin, but I wouldn’t recommend using every day if you have sensitive/dry skin.)
