This product didn't really work for me, I have sensitive skin and the scrub was way to harsh for my face. My boyfriend uses it and he has no problem, so it might have just been my skin type.

I use this once a week or more when my skin is feeling a little dull. Totally worth the $4 at Target, it works great and I know it won't breakout my skin since its formulated for acne prone skin.
