I really like this facial scrub. The smell is fantastic. I use it from time to time. The key is to not use it too often. The texture is very coarse and can be rough on sensitive skin.

This is my favorite inexpensive scrub. It's course but not too much that it would damage your skin and my face just feels so clean afterwards. I like using this at night and then putting on a good night face cream

I seem to actually break out more from using this product. Will try it again to see if it is making me break out. I like how it exfoliates. Love the smell, though!

Smells refreshing and cleans out your pores in no time. Always remember that any time you start a new skin care regimen you are likely to have a few breakouts. That's just your skin getting use to the products

I used to always use this product, and it smelled great and really did clean my face. But then I started noticing how dry my face was becoming. So I cut back on how many times I used it. But my face didn't improve, so I stopped used it completely.
