This is a classic It's great It's mark good too! It's a scrub so you can't Rub it yo hard onto your face but it can be a bit drying for me so I have to use a good mustorizer after.

A little abrasive, but the overall quality is great! Have been using this product for about 6 months now...I have sensitive skin and it seems to not irritate my skin as much as other exfoliant products have.

I have loved this stuff for occasional use since 7th grade! Wouldn't use it everyday but I always like to switch up my products so that they feel more effective.

This face scrub always leaves my face feeling soft and refreshed. The little scrubby beads are so good! They scrub away all the dirt and grime that's on my face from a long icky day.

With all of the facial scrubs I've used, I've always come back to this one. It is cheaper than most, and scrubs better than others (it may be a little harsh for some people though). My husband loves it too :)

If I have a break out, this is my go-to! It works so well, and leaves my skin feeling so smooth and clean after! It's like it goes deep into my pores and cleans all the junk out!

I have used this a few times in my home. Myself and my son have really dry skin so we have tried numerous products. This product kept our skin moisturized for a few hours however, we had to keep applying it multiple times throughout the day.

This is amazing for blackheads. I use it every other day and you really see the difference in shine and purity of my face. Highly recommend using this over any other brand or product for facial cleansing.
