I used this scrub but it didn't do much help to my skin. It wasn't bad but it wasn't very good. Maybe for others it will work but I recommend buying a sample size as I should've done.

Super good! I love using it all the time in the shower or after taking of makeup. It makes your face feel good and fresh after using it. It always helps me with my blackheads a lot.

This is an amazing exfoliator! I use it on my face, chest, shoulders, and arms... in the shower. It leaves my face/body feeling fresh and clean. I would highly recommend this product!

This has always been one of my go to facial products! My mom introduced it to me when I was a kid, and I've been using it ever since. It exfoliates amazingly, just don't overuse it!!!

This product has an odd scent. I wish it had more little grains and it doesn't exfoliate the skin very well. If you are on the more sensitive skin type, then I would recommend this to you. If you can handle more harsh abrasions, I love using brown sugar with a little bit of cleanser! Works great!

This is life. Best drug store scrub out there. Smells delightful. Not disappointed by this at all. Worth every penny and it is very inexpensive so that's a plus. I love it so much because it leaves my skin incredibly soft.

I recently purchased this product, and liked it, but didn't love it. It smells very good, and exfoliates, but in m opinion, not very well. It is very creamy, but I prefer different exfoilaters and scrubs. It also says it is blemish fighting, nut dosen't seen to have much effect on any blemishes.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
