Review – ROC Soft Smoothing Scrub


A few months ago, I have received a complimentary ROC Soft Smoothing Scrub. I didn’t get to review it much earlier as I was still using a facial scrub from other brand at the time.

ROC, a French anti-aging skincare expert, is one of first skincare companies that offers stabilized Retinol formulated skincare products at the drugstore. Retinol, the non-prescription and mildest form of Vitamin A, is proven to treat wrinkles and fine lines effectively.

Exfoliation is an important part of my skincare regimen. Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells on the surface, improve skin texture and appearances of fine lines and wrinkles. When dead skin cells are removed, it creates a barrier for the skin to absorb the nutrients from the following skincare products.

As we age, the cell regeneration process slows down, causing excess dead skin cells to pile on the skin resulting to a dry, rough and dull-looking skin. Accumulated dead skin cells can cause clogged pores and blemishes too. And one of the best remedies is to exfoliate the skin regularly.


Product Claim

Deep but gentle facial cleansing: exfoliates, smoothes and cleanses the skin in one application.



ROC Soft Smoothing Scrub contains Bentonite and Lactic Acid for exfoliating benefits. Bentonite, one of the key ingredients, is a natural clay that has a high absorption capacity that can easily suck out excess grease and dirt from the skin*. When water is added, it quickly forms into a creamy gel texture which allows easy application on the skin during use*.

It also contains fatty acids such as Stearic Acid and Palmitic Acid that are beneficial for the skin.



ROC Soft Smoothing Scrub has a soft creamy abrasive texture that is super gentle for my sensitive skin. It doesn’t feel harsh on my skin at all. I have learned it is formulated with a combination of 2 different micro beads’ size. Spherical pink soft beads that comes in irregular shapes with angles and ridges to effectively scrub away dead skin cells*. These beads are made with Polythelene that is gentle and soft enough to effectively scrub but yet prevent scratches or lesions to the skin*.

ROC Soft Smoothing Scrub effectively exfoliates my skin gently without causing any irritation at all. After one use, my skin appears less dull and rough. My skin instantly appears brighter, smoother and radiant. Thanks to the high level of glycerin in the formula, my skin feels moisturized and it doesn’t feel tight nor dry at all.

It is definitely suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin like mine.

Usage : Use twice a week after makeup removal or normal cleansing. Rinse well with water.
