What's the difference between Magic Hands & Magic Facial Scrub
Beside's the same ingredients between the two, salts in Magic Facial scrub are much finer that the salts in Magic Hands. You will be able to feel the difference when you stir it with spatula (spatula provided ). I snap a picture to show you the difference between the salts sizes.

By looking at the packaging the first question that pop into my mind was 'How do I get those salt and oil out of the jar?' Well, as said earlier, spatula is provided upon purchase. So what you need to do is to just (1) use the spatula to stir the product; (2) tap the spatula on the side of the jar because the thin coating of product left on the spatula is all you need for one (whole face, both hands or specific area on body) treatment. If you want to use it as whole body treatment, then, 5 times of the 'one treatment' amount is recommended by Nana May; (3) massage/scrub the product onto face/skin or whereever areas desire. Remember the skin must be dry, not wet because unlike other products Nana May requires unwet skin before applying; (4) rinse off using warm water and pat dry. You do not need to apply cleanser, toner, moisturiser or lotion after that.

My experience with Nana May's Magic Facial Scrub and Magic Hands
As mention above I discovered this fantastic product at the Taste of Melbourne 2010. Those little candle cupcakes were the ones that attracts me first. Looks yummy don't they? Such a clever marketing tools and suited the theme of the event as well. So, on that event, Nana May provides free hands treatment for under a minute. All I need to do was to get the amount of 'one treatment' on my hands (Nana May's representative stirred, tapped and put it on my hand), massage/scrub my own hands, rinse off with warm water (provided) and pat dry (paper towel provided too). The result was amazing. Magic hands left my hands feeling smooth, soft, clean, fresh and not greasy at all despite of the oils used in the product. Since they were having promotion for gift pack, which consist of 50g Magic Hand and 50g Magic Facial Scrub, I decided to get one. I don't remember how much it cost exactly, $35 maybe.
Since then (which was a month ago) I have been using these products once a day, everyday, for my face and hands and I did whole body scrub/treatment once a week. My face feels amazingly clean, moist, smooth and fresh after I scrubbed/treated it with Magic Facial Scrub. My face no longer feels 'tight' after cleansing. I used to have black heads and uneven skin tone problem. After using this, my black heads has lessen drastically and I no longer had uneven skin tone. I usually use this at night before bed so that I don't have to worry about toner and night cream. Besides, it felt really good sleeping with fresh and naturally cleansed face. I used Magic Hands in the morning for soft, cleaned and fresh feeling hand and also as preparation for the possible water contact. Magic Hands managed to keep my hand soft and smooth for all day even after numerous contact with water.
From my experience, I would like to advise you to do your scrubing/treatment for face and hands in the sink and jump into shower cubicle for body scrub/treatment. Things could get a little messy at times from the dripping oils and salts. By doing so, it's going to be easier for you to clean up too.
