When I was younger I loved this stuff! However trying it again recently I was not really impressed. It still smells great but the exfoliations are rough and don't feel too nice on your skin.

That's what you'll get if you use this product. I've used this product since I was in High School along with Noxzema Cream Cleanser, and I've had a total of 3 zits my entire life. It removes the top layer of dead skin revealing the beautiful, fresh skin beneath.

I found the scrub to be a little too abrasive, but it resulted in very soft skin. The smell was nice, and I only apply it in the shower because the exfoliating beads in it get a little messy. I got this in the campus voxbox, but I would buy it again at the store.

It's kind of a rough exfoliant. I personally prefer the smoothr bubbles for exfoliation. I like the smell, but it's thick a you really have to rinse your face a lot to get it off unless you're carefully using a thin layer.

I used this thinking it would help the acne I had. I used it for a week with no change. I forgot to use it two days in a row and then my acne got worse. Disappointing.
