I have very sensitive skin that is prone to eczema, combination skin that gets really dry in some places and really oily with breakouts in other places. This scrub works well to exfoliate and get rid of the oil without irritating my skin.

I like how gritty it is bc it exfoliates my skin better. I'm not a big fan of the smell but I don't mind it. I use it in the shower bc it tends to get a little messy when trying to wash it off. I love it

This stuff is really good and gets down deep in the skin but you have to be careful because sometimes it can be a little too rough on your skin and cause cuts, depending on how many times you use a week.

I've used this wash for a few years now and i love the way it scrubs my face clean. The roughness is great for removing the layer of dirt from the day. Smells delicious too and always leaves my face soft.

This is a good basics grab. It is a little rough on the skin say have to be careful not to exfoliate too hard or too long. But I did enjoy this product and it lasted a long time

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.
