I use this scrub when I get home from class and it gives me a refreshing boost for the rest of the day. My face feels clean and soft and it gets rid of the oil that accumulates on my skin throughout the day!

This is by far one of my favorite scrubs, I love the smell and how soft my face feels after a good scrub. I have bought this several times and have recommended to several people.

This product smells amazing. I cannot disagree with that. But, it may do the exfoliating too well. It is a little rough on my skin. I like it, but there are much better products.

Pretty good exfoliating cleanser. It's not the best for acne but it does keep your skin smooth. When my pores feel clogged I use this and it makes my skin nice and smooth. The price is very affordable which makes me want to purchase it again.

Works great for blackheads and blemishes! the only reason I give it a "B" is because it is not so gentle on sensitive skin, which I have... otherwise... good stuff.

I use this product to help cut down on my acne. The exfoliating beads help remove dead skin cells and my face feels really clean after using it. My face can sometimes get oily quickly after using it though.

This is not for someone with normal skin. Works best for those who have oily skin. Had normal skin and after a few uses I noticed my face was very dried out. Defiantly not for me.

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