I've used this scrub for years but always seen to have to use another product in order to see results but it does give you a soft feel to your skin and good for oily skin.

I love this scrub, because it's not harsh on my skin, and is very affordable. It keeps my skin moisturized, and manages to get all the dead skin off without being super harsh.

Used this face wash for a very long time ans I loved it but I used it too often and it made my skin feel dry! Affordable and great as an exfoliator if only used once or twice a week!

I have to admit that my skin feels super smooth after using this, but using it more than once a week makes my skin red & hurt. I tend to use this on my body because the exfoliation is really effective

I did not like this facial scrub at all.
It was very Sandy and rough on my skin and almost left a residue after i used it .
The only positive thing was the scent smelled great

Okay product. Found this very irritating to my acne prone skin. It wasnt too harsh, I just feel it wasnt the best exfoliator to use with cystic acne. Ive tried out this product a few times and it seemed to get worse rather than better
