I have used this product ever since I was old enough to wash my own face. My mother has always used it as well. It is a sort of tradition. My face always feels clean and extremely soft after I use it.

Who hasn't tried this item? Everyone & their grandmother used this, I've been using this for years & I always go back to it. It's reasonable for a drug store product. I'll never stop using this product

This is my go to scrub! I love this stuff. It definitely helps with clogged pores, blemishes and acne. I do recommend that if you have sensitive skin, NOT to use this product.

I know a lot of people rave about this product, but its not as good as it seems. It actually OVER exfoliates your skin, leaving microscopic scratches and damaging your skin. I would not recommend it.

I think it has a great sense. Makes my skin so soft and smooth. It's worth buying!! It lingers for a day most of the time. It isn't too expensive to buy like most face washes
