I love to use this to exfoliate my face every night. It removes all surface oil and dirt. I'm in love with the smell too! Although the beads can be harsh, it still works on sensitive screen.

After using this product, it not only took away some dry skin already there, but left my pores looking big and dried my skin out more. Otherwise, for a few hours, makes skin feel very clean.

This is one of the best scrubs to remove blackheads and any dry skin but it is very abrasive so if you have really sensitive skin don't use it more then 2 times a week.

This is a great scrub to use about once or twice per week. It's super rough and the exfoliators are very large and scratchy. This scrub can be drying, so make sure to use a good moisturizer!

Love the way it makes your skin feels after using it. It feels like baby skin. Also you feel so fresh and your skin can breath. It is also very good to use if you have a sun burn and when you skin starts peeling, you can use this and all dead skin will be gone.

I use this scrub every few days to help get rid of those dead dry skin cells. Helps my skin looks brighter, clearer and more healthy. Only con is that its a little tricky to rinse it all off.

This scrub isn't as harsh as other scrubs. It's smooth enough to use every other day if needed. Only problem with this scrub is the amount you have to actually squeeze out to cover the face.
