This scrub has been on so many best of lists for years and for good reason. It definitely makes my skin feel clean but it hasn't necessarily caused any improvement in my skin tone.

It's my, lets use these every few weeks scrub. Why? It takes all the extra crap off my face that other cleaners/exfoliators don't touch. This is a classic, get it!

I love this product, it really is refreshing I use it about 2-3 times a week, I love how it's gentle on my skin, and really helps reduce my acne. To add on to that its really cheap.

For such a low cost product it works like you would expect. Pros: the exfoliation and smell. Cons: left my face dryer than normal. Assuming it would be a better product for oily skin.

Great acne scrub! Gets all of the dead skin off and leaves your face visible smooth as well as the texture of your face. Smells great and it's reasonably priced !

I have been using this scrub for years. I love to use it every day in the shower when my pores are open for a deeper exfoliation. It truly has been a must have for me. It leaves my face feeling smooth and fresh :-)

I've been using this for the longest and it still amazes me how well it works. My face feels so fresh and clean every time. I saw a previous review on how I can use it on my armpits. I would have never thought of that and I will definitely try it.

This product is okay. I’ve only used it a few times and haven’t seen much difference. I have combo skin. I do have little blemishes and have acne scars. This product didn’t wow me. Don’t really recommend.

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