I have been using this scrub for years and it's just as good if not better then more expensive brands. Try this before you go wasting money.

The scrub isn't too abrasive so it doesn't leave your skin dry, but still leaves your screen feeling exfoliated.

Everyone in my house uses this. It makes my skin so smooth and the scent is pretty good too. I have sensitive skin, but this isn't so harsh that it gets irritated at all. I suggest this to everyone!

Though this product is definitely great to exfoliate with, i do find myself breaking out when i used this product. I think the ingredients in it might not be all that natural.

Using this scrub once a day has greatly helped my skin stay clear of blackheads and also has helped reduce pimples. There is a noticeable difference when I do not use this scrub and it's icky!

Smells fantastic! One tube lasts a good amount of time. The exfoliating beads are nice and not too hard on my sensitive skin. I like how this brand shows the gentle - harsh scale on the back of the tube.
