This is a wonderful face scrub. I wish it were a little more gentle and less abrasive, but it is their most intense facial scrub in their product line. It does a great job and leaves your skin smooth and nice

I got this w the green tea one and like the green one better. Better smell and makes my face feel better and seems to work on my skin more. But i do like this one for a good exfoliater!

I really like this face wash in moderation. I have found if used daily it actually causes breakouts. I use every other day in combination with another face wash and have no problems.

I used an entire bottle of these and it's really good! The only thing I would recommend is not to not use it daily and perhaps skip a day since exfoliating daily made my skin really dry. Other than that, awesome face scrub and it smells amazing!

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