It's the perfect balance of exfoliation and moisturizing, not too much of either ingredient means your skin will feel the softest it's ever felt.

So if you're experiencing this symptom anywhere else on your body, the Moisturizing Exfoliators are perfectly safe to use anywhere you're experiencing this. In fact, my two-and-a-half-year-old daughter has recently developed this symptom on the backside of her arms, and legs I use it to help smooth them out and soften her skin back to its baby-like softness. 

All the Moisturizing Exfoliators work the same, you simply only need to decide which scent you think you'll like the best.
