I purchased and used the thermal microdermal cleanser before I tried this one. This one was very creamy, but unlike the microdermal one, it didn't have the texture or grittiness for exfoliation that I had hoped. I think I would have liked it a more if its texture was just a bit more like a scrub. Avon ANEW Retroactive + 2-in-1 Cleanserhaven't noticed much in the ways of detoxifying. I use it in my morning shower and it works well as a cream cleanser, but it is lacking in the exfoliating area.
