I used this scrub on my face and it made my face itch and really dry. I tried it on two different occasion because I really wanted to like this product but I got the same results.

This scrub is really good, i recommend it to anyone that wants a clean face with no blemishes or dirty pores. once you wash your face with it you see the difference, and your face stays really soft and clean.

This is one of my favorite face scrubs. It does a great job exfoliating and removing dead skin. I have noticed however, with prolonged use it does tend to make my skin a little oily.

I like this product, but at the same time I do not like this product. It helps make my skin feel smooth, but it also dries out my skin and does not help clear blackheads completely.

I got a sample from Walgreens of this and use it occasionally. I love the smell and how it makes my skin feel. The only problem is after washing my face still seems a little gritty.

I really enjoy using this scrub while in the shower! I don't use it every morning because my skin is sensitive but I love how it leaves my skin after the shower.

I liked this product at first but I noticed it started to dry my skin out. I used it twice a day and I had to which it to once a day. I did like how my face felt after exfoliating.
