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 my favorite facial cleanser! I have been using this daily for over 5 years. I have problem skin, and this doesn't clear me up all the way, but it does help and is an important part of my skin care routine.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT SO MUCH! I use it every morning in the shower after I shave to help combat shaving irritation. It leaves my skin feeling super soft. Very great value for the price and I've repeat purchased it at least 10 times.

Can I just say how much I LOVE this product?!? I've been using this product for about 6 years now, and I have had to change it ever. It's always met my expectations and I totally recommend this product to everyone!

This product definitely scrubs your face, but I think if you use it too much (like once a day or twice a day) it'll damage your skin. I've stopped using it since I got a Clarisonic mia.

This is my FAVE!, I hate having build up , and sometimes my face wash just doesn’t do a great job, exfoliating is a very important process in my skincare routine and this by far has been the best exfoliated for me.

Awesome exfoliated for dry skin! I wouldn't recommend it to you if you have sensitive skin because it can be a little intense. I bought it at target and for a very inexpensive cost. The packaging was convient until you reach the end of the product because it is hard to squeeze the last bits out.

I use this product to cleanse and exfoliate each day. I have never had irritation caused by this product, it works great and leaves skin feeling soft! I buy it at target or Walgreens and would definitely recommend!
This is a must in my skincare regimen! I use this every morning in the shower. It gets into your pores and removes blackheads. It leaves your skin feeling very smooth and flawless. I can tell if I have skipped a day using this product. It helps my makeup go on smoothr and prevents breakouts.

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