I love this product! It helped my oily skin and has a fantastic smell. I do recommend it to girls who struggle with oily skin. Leaves your skin super soft and feeling fresh!

I have used this since I was a teenager. I don’t need to use it every day unless I have a break out. But it works really well. I love how well it exfoliates and it leaves your sling feeling very clean.

Exfoliates my skin right away and rids of any blackheads/breakouts within 1-2 nights, can be a little rough on the skin though I wouldn't recommend using on non problem areas

Who doesn’t love a great inexpensive face scrub that gets the work done? I use this when I feel like my blackheads are taking over my face. Everytime I use this I feel like I have a brand new face haha

I been using this for a couple of months and it has helped me clear my face. I also like the way it smells and it also helped by keeping my face not that oily during the day.

Definitely the best exfoliating product in my opinion. It's very affordable and works amazing. I use it about 2 to 3 times a week and it leaves my face feeling very refreshed.

I love this product and use it all the time. It is the only product I have found that cleans my oily skin without drying it out. I love how it scrubs my face with the little exfoliators in the cream.

Wouldn't say that it controls my blemishes well, but it's a decent scrub, if a bit rough. I wouldn't recommend for everyday use, especially for anyone with sensitive skin.

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