My go-to, affordable face scrub. Have been using this on and off since I was a teenager; the beads in this scrub really feel like the clean your skin throughly and it doesnt leave residue on my skin afterwards

Providing your skin is not sensitive to salicylic acid, this is an amazing product. It is gentle, effective, and affordable. You can use it daily on your face or your entire body.

It looks nice, once you start to use it, you will break out more! The little beads inside of it are too rough on your skin. They will just irritate, and break open your blemish causing you to break out worse.

Definitely deep cleans, leaves face feeling soft and does a great job of getting rid of is a little abrasive so I only use it twice a week, a little goes a long way.

I LOVE this scrub! I've tried so many different facial washes and scrubs and this is one of my favorites.  It really helps calm my breakouts and always leaves my skin super soft.  It's really cheap at the drugstore, and it smells amazing.  Would definitely buy again!!

I use to like this product until I found out that the microbeads can cause micro tears in the skin, so I tried to use it with a little bit more water to make the scrub smoothr. Eventually I move to another product. However it did cleanse well.

Love this product it works really well for someone who has issues with black head works great but if you have oily skin with a tendency to break out this could be the product to make it worse

I have used this stuff for years. Works very well but as I've gotten older, it hasn't been as effective as it was in the past. It really does leave your skin feeling great though
