This is an excellent every day product. I haven't found that it is too tough on my skin or dries it out too much. It smells great, always leaves my skin soft and is a great product for the price!

This face scrub is okay. It is great for sensitive skin, smells great and my face does feel somewhat smoothr after use. I do not feel like it is as great as treating acne as other products however.

This stuff sounds great and is for a while but I found myself getting more acne from using it. Its like it irritated my skin too much? Who knows. At least it smelled great.

Not a big fan of this product because of the scrubbing part. It is very rough, and I have used other exfoliaters that smooth your skin but are more gentle. Not recommended at all for sensitive skin.

I use this scrub about once or twice a week and afterwards my skin always feels very deeply cleaned. Be sure that when you scrub this on your face, you are not too harsh because it is a bit gritty.

I've noticed my acne has seem rather under control after using this product, however not sure if that is due to this or my prescription. Not really a life changing product.

I use this product regularly and I've used it for years! I use this maybe once or twice a week on my face. I also use it on my whole body. It makes a huge difference on my legs after I shave them!
