I love this stuff and used it for years. It was the only scrub I would buy. However, the Green Tea scrub by St. Ives is my new favorite. It's just as effective but more gentle.

I love this product and use it everyday. It is not as harsh as some of the other products available and work well in the winter when your skin might already be dry. I would highly recommend this product.

I used this product for years because I had KP on my arms but I heard that the giant physical exfoliators are actually bad for your skin so I switched to a much gentler scrub.

I have tried many brands over the last 17 years; and this is the only one that has not only cleared up my skin but has prevented further breakouts. I have found that it's gentle enough to use twice a day. Great product for a great price.

After use left my face tight and extremely dry. As far as being a blackhead remover it did it's job. The smell was good and seemed to exfoliate well but super dried out my skin.

I've been using this face wash since I was a teenager. Gentle enough for my sensitive skin, but I still get a great clean feeling afterwards! One of my favorite go to products!

This product is probably awesome if you don't have sensitive skin, but it definitely irritated my face. It absolutely clears out blackheads, but is a little too drying for me.

This has to be my favorite scrub. Not only does it smell really good but it leaves my face feeling so soft and very clean! I've been using this for years and I won't be changing anytime soon.

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