OBSIDIAN RENEWAL SCRUB
50g/ 1.7fl oz.
The savior to your skin in a jar; Obsidian Renewal scrub works effectively to remove the build up of dirt and toxins to reveal clean, luminous, silky smooth skin. This antioxidant rich formula penetrates deeply to repair accumulation caused by daily environmental stress, without harsh chemicals. Just pure, detoxifying goodness for the ultimate renewal of your skin.
Pores that are noticeably more refined and skin that feels like it’s gone through a refining and therapeutic facelift. With consistent use, you will notice years of buildup that have been sitting underneath the surface of your skin for awhile to melt away.
HOW TO USE
Rinse face with warm water. Measure an almond-sized amount of Obsidian Renewal Scrub onto the palm of your hand, with the scoop provided. Start by very gently massaging into the skin and lips using a circular motion for 15-20 seconds, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 5-10 minutes (optional), then rinse with warm water, followed by cool water, to reveal softer, smoother skin.
Can be used 5-6 times a week, with a day off during the week.
- Obsidian Renewal Scrub doubles as your detoxifying and purifying face mask. To do so, wet your hands and measure a large almond-sized amount of scrub onto the palm of your hand and very gently massage on dry face. Rinse your hands and leave the ‘mask’ on your face for 5 minutes before rinsing off with warm water, followed with a cool water rinse.
- If you have access to a steam room or sauna, take a moment to treat your face to 10 minutes of steam to open and thoroughly purify your pores while the product works its wonder on your face. Follow this with a cool water rinse to close and tighten your pores now that they have been thoroughly cleansed.

I have very sensitive skin, so while I am obsessed with trying new skincare products, I'm always a little nervous. When I first tried this scrub, I was suffering from a small breakout from a different brand's products. This scrub left my skin feeling refreshed, smooth, and helped clear up my breakouts! This scrub smells (and tastes...opps lol) so good without using any artificial fragrances. The tips suggest using in a sauna or steam room to help the ingredients work their magic. I do not have access to either, so I'll just leave the scrub on while in the shower. Using this scrub is one of my favorite parts of my skincare routine!
Noelle, we are SO happy to hear that you have been loving the Obsidian Charcoal Scrub! It makes us so happy to hear that and thank you so much for your wonderful review.
My experience with exfoliants has been exfoliants that claim to cleanse and nourish my skin but instead leave it feel stripped, depleted of moisture and then in turn cause my skin to over produce oils and break out. This does not do that. I feel my skin being refreshed, cleansed, exfoliated but also nurtured, soft, and moisturized. I have delicate rosacea prone skin around my cheeks and I find this is delicate enough on my skin.
Leaves my skin so fresh and soft... Smells so good... I have sensitive skin so I use it a few times a week. A bit more in the summers.
There are so many things I love about this exfoliant. And I’ve tried almost every exfoliant out there over the years, so I feel very compelled to write this review. The Obsidian Scrub is really unlike any other. First, the consistency is so luxuriously thick and moisturizing (yet not at all heavy), and you know that feeling when you wake up in the morning and feel a little gunky- what i call skin hangover (maybe you don’t but anyway)- this takes it ALL away immediately because you feel like it sloughs away all the buildup from the night before including blackheads from 2 years ago (not kidding), and your skin feels immediately renewed and very soft and smooth. Second, it does all of this while still feeling incredibly gentle and therapeutic and the ingredients are so marvelous. I look forward to using this (followed by Liquid Amber and the Palmarosa Mist which is so refreshing) every morning now and I can’t imagine going without these three products now. It’s only been a month but my skin has actually changed and so many people have noticed! So happy! Thank you, Li Organics!! ❤️
Love how this scrub leaves my skin feeling so soft without being abrasive at all!
My favorite thing about the obsidian scrub is that, even many hours after using it, my skin feels hydrated and protected, without any negative oily feeling. The smell is very pleasant and natural, and one that appeals to me as a guy. My favorite time to use it is before a long flight, so that it protects my face from the extremely dry air on the airplane.
