I like how well this exfoliates, but it can be very harsh. I'm also not sure it actually helps with acne. It does leave skin smooth but I can't use it very often.

I really like this cleanser. I don't use it daily because it's so exfoliating but I do like to use it a few times a week. It's nice that it's fairly cheap and seems to work well.

I am not prone to acne, but I do have really dry skin and get pimples often. This was overall, a decent product. It overall, left my skin slightly more moisturized, and it smells great. Got it in my Campus Box :)

My only scrub I've used for years. I absolutely love it. It unclogs pores and cleanses face without leaving a residue. It also keeps my acne and blackheads at bay.

I like it, not crazy about it. It dries my skin out. But I naturally have dry skin anyways. The smell is great, and it does leave your skin soft and smooth feeling

People spend a lot of money for face wash, not necessary with this, for less then $5 you get the best face wash out there. I have used it for 20+ years and won't use anything else. Works great, leaves skin smooth

By far my favorite face scrub. I've been using it for since I was a teenager. Its an extremely harsh exfoliation, which for me is great. I have sensory issues and without I feel like my face is not clean at all.
