This scrub is a little bit too harsh for me, so I don't use it as a daily wash; however, I do use it occasionally and I love how it leaves my skin! Great for once in a while!

I love using this product to exfoliate my face! I usually do it while I take a shower, leave it on for a little bit and then rinse it off. It leaves my face nice and smooth!

This product is awesome! Not only does it reduce blackheads but it makes you skin so soft. The product does not look very appealing, it works really well and I love how it makes my skin look and feel.

One of my top facial products. The small beads in this scrub really work any dirt and dead skin off of my face, without tearing of my skin. The smell is good and I always feel refreshed after using.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
