I love how refreshing and smooth this makes my skin! I took this camping over the summer it made me not feel as icky with sweat all over my face. I love the beads that are in it they might be rough for some people but I really do like them

I use this product because I love the smell! It can be harsh- I only use it every couple of days in the shower. A little goes a long way. One bottle lasted me about 6 months. I would suggest this product.

It's relatively cheap and it smells really good. It hasn't given me any dramatic results and sometimes causes red spots if I use it too often. Also a little cumbersome to get completely off your face.

I found this product very abrasive and aggresive to my sensitive skin. The "beads" in this product were harsh and left my skin red and irritated. This product is not suited for those with sensitive skin

Love this product! I use to use my moms foot scrub on my face before I discovered there was one for the face lol. It removes dirt, blackheads and any kind of grease built up you have. Use enough water while washing your face, the beads can be a little rough. Product is affordable.

Great smelling product but unfortunately was pretty rough on my skin. The beads made it feel like I was rubbing sandpaper against my face. I will not be using this product on my sensitive skin ever again.

This is a product I repurchased until I realized what it was doing to my skin. It was too harsh of an exfoliant for me. I found that it didn't do much expect essentially scratch my skin and leave it slightly irritated, but not much better.

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