It leaves my skin feeling supple and hydrated. I feel like it actually works better than most other physical exfoliants I have tried, from St. Ives or Neutrogena. It smells wonderful too, which is definitely a bonus. No chemical odor at all. I have combination skin that is mostly oily, prone to clogged pores. I have not experienced any issues with it. If you are sensitive, I would recommend this, because the sugar is gentle and the honey seems to be soothing.
