I love this product! I've tried so many other face wash products on my skin and none worked as great as this. I use this everyday when I shower or at night before bed to wash my makeup off. Plus, it smells good!

I wouldn't say this is the best for you skin. Its quite harsh with the granules scratching away your skin's outer layer. It is, however, great for if you need to exfoliate your body.

No need to spend a crazy amount of money on expensive face scrubs. This scrub really gets the grit out of pores without irritating my skin. Plus it smells great and leaves my skin smooth and refreshed after use.

Great for scraping off all dead skin but it does tend to have a lot of seeds and when i use it in the bathtub the seeds go everywhere and never absorb and they get itchy on your skin

This is my main blemish scrub, it helps to keep my face feeling soft and fresh. I usually buy this at Target for about $3/4 dollars and the bottle lasts me about a month.

Makes your face feel soooooo soft and it helped clear up my acne. I only use it twice a week , Mondays and Thursdays. It's a great product , you can get the Walmart brand but I feel like this works wayyyy better

Stopped going to the dermatologist for a year and used this product instead, and it kept my skin exfoliated and breakouts at bay during that time. Can be drying if used too frequently.

Made my skin clear and smooth but I hate the rocky feeling when you place it onto your face! I would definitely use it though it doesn't give my face irritation .
