I would stay away from the beads which are essentially plastic. They can be harsher and they pose an environmental risk. I'd stick to the oats, baking soda, and even crushed rice if you need a good exfoliant.

A terry washcloth works, too ... Sometimes the simplest solution is often the best solution.

The microbeads are washing up on the Great Lakes beaches, and fish are ingesting them.
