Dr. Lisa Kellett, a dermatologist at DLK on Avenue, expresses similar concerns about the scrub and its use of walnut-shell powder.
“The issue is this: not everyone is ideal to use that product and not everyone is ideal to use that product daily,” said Kellett.
“To say that it’s great for everyone… that’s a blanket statement. For some people, it would not be appropriate.”
Ultimately, the effects of this scrub will vary from person to person — but Kellett warns that people with underlying skin diseases should stay away.
“People with a history of eczema or atopic dermatitis… people who have very active acne… this product could irritate them and cause an irritant reaction,” she said.
