When I was first trying out this product I really wanted a good exfoliater. This product proved to meet my expectations, was very easy to use, and wasn’t very messy to use as some of my others have been. I purchase this product every 3/4 weeks, so very good use. I would say it definitely keeps my acne at bay because it used to be borderline cystic before I really got into skincare. The reason I only give it 4/5 stars is because although it exfoliates my skin well (I have oily/sensitive/normal skin type) I still feel like I need to use some other kind of product to complete my acne fighting routine. Overall I believe anyone looking for a deep clean every couple of days would really appreciate this product. Also don’t overuse as it may irritate or make skin dry.

I started using this product and was super excited but after each use my face would be extremely red and splotchy. I would get red welts and they would itch like crazy.

I love this scrub. It is not too harsh or rough on your skin. It’s also really nice to have a scrub that helps fight acne too. This is a great product at a great price!

This is one of my favorite scrub it leaves my face so soft my only complaint is that it leaves little white beads all over my face and it is nearly impossible to get off

Many people have said this doesn’t work for them but personally it’s good. It’s not amazing or anything but it sure does minimizes pores and blemishes.
I’d recommend:)

I do not really like this but it’s very cheap and affordable. It’s just like it does nothing to your skin. Seems as if it doesn’t even clean your skin. It’s like gritty nothing.

I really enjoy the scrub, it really leaves you feeling clean and refreshed.  The product was worth the price and I would definitely buy it again and recommend it.

I love this scrub! It’s gentle enough to use more than once a week and exfoliates without drying my skin out too much. I love using it when I have used a lot of makeup

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