My skin get super dry in the winter months. I use a little bit of this scrub in the shower 2x per week and it cleanses away the dry, dead skin & allows my moisturizer to penetrate much better. Such a lifesaver!

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.

I've tried everything and this is by far the best. It leaves your skin feeling so clean. It smells great. It's not too harsh. It's affordable and available almost everywhere. It's a classic skin care product.

I enjoy this product. However, I feel that it is too harsh to use on my face. I use it to exfoliate my elbows, knees and feet. It smells great and works wonderfully to make my feet and elbows smooth and soft.

I love using this product when i have a lot of dry, peeling skin on my face! It removes most of it but also dries out your skin so the process repeats, i would recommend using this product with a moisturizer.

I have tried this, hoping to get rid of all my blackheads. After still being hopeful after a week, I was not seeing any results. Does this work for anyone else?

I've been using this for years, it's best in the shower after you've let the steam and hot water open your pores. The scrub is great for sebum and blackheads on your nose and chin.
