This product works for the most part. It doesn't dry my combination skin or leave it greasy. I still have break outs during that once a month thing but other than that I love this product

I have oily skin in summer and this product always fixes my skin within a couple uses. The exfoliation makes your skin feel fresh like you just left the spa and got a professional face mask. The smell is nice too. :)

I love how clean my face looks and how smooth it feels after I wash. It's the fresh feeling that make you appear more awake in the morning. Absolutely recommend it.

It really feels like your scrubbing away the dead skin cells! The consistency is perfect but I wouldn't use it too often during the week because I feel it will hurt your skin in the end.

This was the first scrub I ever used and the one that I've stuck with most consistently. I like that the exfoliating bits are not plastic based and that the product is gentle on my skin.

I have only used this product for a few days and it smells really good. It leaves your skin feeling soft and it seems to be working pretty well on my skin. I would recommend this product.
