Raw Materials Skin Grit Face & Body Scrub



2015 Best In Shop Selection - Fine grained, natural scrub. Gentle for the face, but tough for the body.

Raw Materials Skin Grit is a fine-grained natural exfoliating scrub gentle enough for the face, tough enough for the body. Crushed walnut shells and jojoba beads unclog pores, remove dead skin and soften fresh skin. This exfoliating scrub is perfect for use before shaving or 2-3 times a week. Used as a face exfoliator before shaving, Raw Material Skin Grit helps reduce razor burn and prevent ingrown hairs. 98% natural ingredients. 

Why It's Different:
Natural ingredients like jojoba beads and plant extracts fuel skin with antioxidants. Jojoba beads gently soften skin and release natural moisturizing components. Crushed walnut shells unclog pores and remove dead, dull skin. Raw Materials Skin Grit is both a gentle face exfoliator and a gritty skin cleanser in one bottle.

    Best Facial Scrub

    I've been using this for about 5 years now. It is really cleanses the skin, but even if you are rubbing with some aggression, it does not tear up your skin. Natural, with no funny plastics beads or anything like that. Mild, pleasant scent. I don't use everyday, but you could. Bottle lasts me ~ 4 months with judicious use.

    This is the best face scrub I have ever used. It is like liquid sand paper that really exfoliates and leaves my face renewed and refreshed. I would highly recommend this.

    Review by Kirk on August 21, 2017

    Very happy

    I am very happy with this scrub. I can use very small amount and it's gritty but not too abrasive, yet does what you want a scrub to do and I have sensitive skin. Smells great too.

    Review by Mac on December 27, 2016

    Love this product!

    This is an excellent product! It cleans thoroughly and gently exfoliates skin, leaving it smooth and reducing the size of pores. I've tried many products in an effort to find the right combination of cleaning and exfoliating: This is it! I've been using this product for three years and it never disappoints.

    Review by Travis on October 12, 2016

    Superior face scrub

    The consistency of this scrub is excellent, especially for those who have sensitive skin. Not too abrasive, but just enough grit to get the job done. Leaves your skin feeling smooth and not dry or tight. Perfect pre-shave treatment. Highly recommended.

    Review by Ronald on September 2, 2016

    Smells really good,

    The one thing that surprised me about this product is the smell. It has a nice smell that makes using it that much better. While the product is thick, it seems to be going faster that I expected. It is a pretty small bottle and expensive, so I'm not too happy about it emptying fast. So far, I am happy, though.

    Exceptional Scrub

    I've used several different scrubs and this is, by far, the best bag for your buck. A little amount goes a long way, and the product gives a deep clean.

    Review by Ryan on January 26, 2016

    Great texture, feels wonderful

    I got this as a free sample with some hair product. I love it. I have to hide it from my wife to keep her from using it instead of her crazy expensive scrubs.

    Review by Bradley on November 10, 2015

    Great exfoliator

    Leaves my face feeling super clean and tight. Does its job without drying out my face. Don't need to look for another exfoliator after finding this one.

    Review by Jonathan L on September 1, 2015

    Very Fine-grained

    Super fine-grained and gentle! When you use it, it feels like the "scrubbiness" disappears into your skin. So usually it's cool but some humid days you just want a hearty scrubbing and then you'll just have to use more of the product than you might expect. Personally I tend to like a little more grit in my facial scrubs, like the new Port Products facial scrub.

    Great product

    Great facial scrub. Non-abrasive, but gets the job done.

    Review by Diego on June 7, 2015

    Great product

    I bought this to use 2-3 times a week and i like it. It has a good balance in the grit and does a very good job exfoliating and preventing ingrown hairs. The scent is mild which i prefer, and having oily skin, it leaves my skin feeling fresh without overdrying. I would recommend. One of my favorite products.

    Without a doubt, the best facial scrub out there for the money.

    Review by Bourke on April 30, 2015

    There's a reason this keeps getting chosen best in shop

    Great facial scrub. I use it about twice a week and my face feels fresh and clean. I've tried other facial scrubs and none of them come close. Also works well as a body wash if you're so inclined.

    Review by Billy on April 6, 2015

    Great product

    I just started using this product and am really impressed. I shave 3-4x a week and this is pretty much the best scrub I have used. It's gritty enough to really clean and exfoliate, but it's not at all harsh. My skin isn't that sensitive but I think someone with sensitive skin could use this with no problem. I end up with a clean shave and a fresh feeling mug. Will definitely buy again.

    Review by Mauricio on March 27, 2015


    I been using face scrubs from the local drugstores for years but none of them are close to what this scrub has done to my face. This scrub is awesome.

    Review by Kyle on November 20, 2014

    Great Facial Scrub

    This is a great smelling (lime/citrus) scrub that is not too harsh for sensitive skin. My face feels completely clean after using this scrub--I prefer this over the Urth scrub.

    Review by Daniel on August 25, 2014

    Outclasses Others and Exceeds Expectations

    You may have noticed that this product was difficult to purchase for some time. The Motley has seemingly always carried it with brief periods of being out of stock due to the company that makes this product. I e-mailed their customer service twice in recent years and received nice e-mails both times from a lady there who said that they had a heck of a time in their business due to running out of adequate materials and trying to become "Whole Foods-Certified," which apparently now, they are. I only ever buy on this website. The price has increased slightly, and I'm still willing to purchase it at this price, because it is WORTH IT. It is hands-down the best facial scrub I've used as a male with sensitive skin. It works perfectly as a pre-shave scrub or every other day scrub to keep that fresh feel. I use it all the time before I use a Cremo Shave Cream + Imperial Pre-Shave Oil combo (a nick-size of both previously stated items together). Super slick, never have dead skin, never feel dried out. What else could I say? This stuff is simply the best. I hope that Raw Materials continues to make this amazing product. Running out of it now, is simply not an option for me. Thanks Motley! Your customer service is nothing less than stellar, and you've made a lifetime fan in me.

    Review by Erik on May 21, 2014

    Absolutely wonderful

    I shave about two to three times a week, and I must say that using this product only on the mornings prior to shaving really helps reduce razor burn and does the majority of the exfoliating work for you, rather than letting your blade have to deal with any extra impurities on your skin. Smells delicious too. Do not get anything else for an exfoliator but this!

    It does a great job but still on the lookout to see if I can find something better

    Review by Jonathan on June 2, 2013

    Best facial scrub I've used

    This is easily the best facial scrub I've used. The exfoliators are the smallest I've ever experienced in a scrub, and they really feel like they do the job better than the larger ones found in competing products. Also, this smells better than other scrubs I've tried, which often have a more manufactured, almost chemical-ish smell. Highly recommended.

    Review by Chris on May 29, 2013

    Does what it says, and does it well

    A good smelling product that does everything it claims to do without drying/tightening your skin.
    Get it and your body will thank you.

    Review by Dimas on May 19, 2013

    Excellent result

    The product works as advertised. I can feel the smoothest of my skin whenever I used the product. It didn't make my skin dry at all (especially for an Asian skin like me). Overall, I will definitely buy this product again.

    Review by Christian on May 11, 2013

    Wow, excellent, best in its category

    One word… WOW! This is the best face scrub it tried until today. I had it in my Test run. It feels like sand on your skin and gives you the feeling of cleaning and exfoliating your skin perfectly. My skin wasn´t dry at all and felt a lot smoother, also perfect as a pre-shave scrub. It has s nice citrus scent. You don´t need very much of the product so one bottle will last very long. I´m definitively going to buy this again.

    - effective but not to aggressiv
    - refreshing citrus scent
    - you just need a small amount
    - smoothens skin really well
    - awesome as a pre-shave treatment
    - couldn´t find any :)

    Review by ZG on April 15, 2013

    Great non-drying facial scrub

    I have used and abandoned several facial scrubs after they left my face feeling dry and tight. After my first time using this scrub however, my face felt visibly smoother and cleaner without the tight, dry feeling that comes with using a scrub. I will definitely be buying this scrub again.

    This scrub is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Another scrub similar to this was $95.00 a tub. Great Price, Great Product

    Review by Dave on April 7, 2013

    Solid product so far

    Don't have much to compare it to since I've never regularly used a scrub before. But I've been using it in the shower as suggested and can feel a difference already. Not too abrasive, but enough to do the job. You only need to use a little bit for each wash, so the product feels like a much better value than I originally thought.

    Review by Trevor on December 11, 2012

    For those who like it rough

    Sampled it first in my "test run" and got hooked. The jojoba beads feel like fine sand on your face, leaving it refreshed and smooth afterwards. Use it as a pre shave scrub or just an every other day scrub to keep your skin feeling fresh. I've tried several scrubs but this is by far the best I've used ( VS Lush's Ocean Salt, Kyoku Facial Scrub, Origins Modern Friction)

    Review by Chase on June 16, 2012

    Great scrub, really works well!

    I got hooked with the test run package. After that there was no other alternative to this product. I really liked how fine the scrubbing material was, it felt like it was really getting in there.

    Would totally recommend this to others!

    Review by FC on March 25, 2012


    I've tries a few facial scrubs in the past but was never satisfied. This is great! I'll keep using this as long as you'll keep selling it! Great scent and my skin feels perfect after using it. Perfect as pre-shave.

    Review by Alex on October 5, 2011

    Expensive but nice scrubbing product

    I was hesitant buying a soap that was this expensive but am glad I did. I've been using it every three days and it's really helping keeping my skin vibrant and healthy-looking. The natural ingredients only add to the wonderful scent and feel. I'm planning on keeping this in my morning routine!
