My family and I have oily skin and blemish easily so we have been using this scrub for years and will never stop using. It is a deep scrub without being too rough on the skin.

This is great! I use it once every 2 weeks to remove my self tanner. it is rough and not for sensitive skin. Great price too. Don't waste your money buying expensive scrubs, this is a good rough one.

This bad boy is beautiful. For the price and its effect, Its amazing. I noticed a difference in my skin within a week. I've bought it many times, but recently stopped b/c a bead got in my contact and cut my eye. Be careful people

Really aggressive scrub works well with oily skin, I only use it once a week.
I heard it can leave tiny abrasions in skin, but if you don't press too hard or use it once in a while it does it's job.
