This product is okay. I wish it did more exfoliating for my skin. I'm not in love with it necessarily. I find that I will use it but will still have dry peeling skin afterwards still.

The only downside to the scrub products is that if you aren't careful or use them too much/abrasively they can make your pores bigger/noticeable. This product is great, but I typically only used it on my back as a teenager to prevent blackheads.

I LOVE this scrub. It leaves my skins feeling soft and clean and the best part is that it's so affordable! Once I tried it I immediately became in love, would definitely recommend.

This is really the only exfoliator I will use. It clears my pores and makes my skin feel smoothr after each use. Other exfoliants I use are harsh on my skin or leave weird dry patches. This feels good, smells good, and keeps my skin clear.

It will leave your skin really soft, that's a given. But it is also pretty harsh and left me with a bunch of small bumps afterwards. Would not recommend if you have sensitive skin like me.

I love this scrub!!! I've been using it since I was a teenager but that's because it works. I have acne prone skin and it helps just keep my breakouts minimal and my skin smooth :)

Favorite scrub! I love it I use it daily great exfoliator leaves for skin feeling extra clean and smooth. But I would not recommend it if you have sensitive skin it is a bit harsh.

I only get acne occasionally, but I still love using this exfoliator for my face! My skin is so smooth afterwards. I give it a B though because I really don't like the smell even though the results are wonderful

I've been using this product since I can remember. It's always been my go to exfoliator. I wouldn't say it's too gentle, but it's not too harsh either. It gets the job done leaving my skin feeling silky smooth!

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

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