With my combination skin I really needed something that would scrub off the dry skin and keep my skin oil free.

I have been using this scrub everyday for the past 7 years. It keeps my skin clean. clear and refreshing.

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.

I've had a lot of success with this. I'm not one who has a lot of acne but it really keeps my skin smooth and gets rid of those problem pimples I get once and a while.

This scrub is AMAZING! I've been using it for years and it never disappoints. It's very exfoliating and cleans dirt out of the skin really well. Very nourishing and moisturizing as well.

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.

My roommate in college RAVED about this product all the time, and I finally bought it (because I was out of my regular stuff) and fell in love the first time I used it. It is great for all over your body, not only your face.
