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.

I feel guilty using this, considering its not the best thing for your skin, but it's definitely effective: radiantly clean skin immediately after washing it off!

I LOVE using this product. I use it on my face about every other night. I do not use this in the mornings. I love how it cleans my skin, especially if I feel like my makeup wipes might of missed some of my make up. It works really well with my other products.

I use this a few times a week and it makes my skin feel nice. I don't know how much it really helps my skin but it feels nice after. I haven't noticed a huge difference in blemish control or blackheads however.

It smells delicious! I like it for an exfoliate, but maybe not for a blemish control. I feel like it doesn't have a well enough lather to make a good face cleanser.

Have used this product off and on for years and no matter how many times I stop using it to try something new, I always come back. No other product leaves me feeling completely clean when I'm done, however I wish I could use more than once a week.

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