My husband and I both use this product. Me for my chin and nose, him for his neck after he shaves. Leaves you feeling extra clean, but will dry your skin out if instructions aren't followed.

This is a great scrub! It is natural and non-irritating on my sensitive skin. It also seems to help prevent acne. I use it on my face about 3 times a week in the shower.

While this is a great product for the young as you get older it is hard on your skin so once you are in you 30s you cant use this because it makes your skin red at times

I have used this for about 7 years now and I won't change! It keeps my skin clear and smooth. I don't use it every day but maybe once a week so I'm not over exfoliating.

This scrub was not good for my skin! First of all, it is extremely abrasive and very rough on the skin. It also personally made my skin greasier and worsened my acne. It smells great, but that's about the only positive about it.

Never makes my skin dry, I've never had a bad reaction to the product and I have very sensitive skin. It cleans and makes my skin soft and it even smells good, naturally!

This is not something you should be putting on your skin. The scrub contains tiny, sharp pieces of walnut that create tears in your skin that let bacteria and dirt invade in and that can cause infections later down the line.

This scrub is really great, especially for the price. The only negative would be sometimes the scrubbers are a little too strong for sensitive skin but overall its great!
