This product is gentle enough to use as a daily exfoliant, though still works hard to remove dirt and oils from my skin. I wish its acne-fighting ingredients were stronger as I still get breakouts.

Favorite scrub. Makes my skin smooth and tight! I will buy it over and over. Packaging is good for function! Never disappoints. Only product I use until empty! Love it so much! Buy it.

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.

Good product to help cleanse the skin. I usually use 3 products to cleanse my skin at night and I like to use this one last because it leaves your skin feeling moisturized.

This scrub is a pretty decent scrub. It works pretty well but it tends to dry out my skin. It did seem to prevent acne pretty well though probably because it dries out. It smells really good though.

I thought i would not like this when i first used it. I have sensitive skin, so the kernel scrub felt quite abraisive. After I washed it off though, my face was so soft and it smells very good too.

I use this every single day in the shower. Its the best scrub that gets all my makeup off and keeps my skin buffed and smooth without over-drying it or making it super red.

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!
