This a great exfoliant or and I feel it has helped with acne as well but my face is so smooth after I use it.. The only downfall I would say is that sometimes it makes my face greasy afterwards.

This is a great exfoliating scrub. It dries out your face for while your face gets used to the product but after a while it is great, you only have to use it a few times a week

I have worked for a dermatologist for years now. This will definitely exfoliate your skin but the small grits tears your Pores. Not to mention causes horrible irritation and will dry you out!!!

It works as an exfoliant mainly because of the texture but you have to be cautious not to over scrub with it . It is pretty decent if you don't have sensitive skin and use it a few times per week

I have this and the green tea one! I tend to switch off between the two but I use them daily. These are amazing for exfoliating and are really inexpensive. I'm a fan :)

Great daily exfoliator that helps stop those blemishes before they start. Formula has just enough grit and nice subtle scent that is not irritating to my sensitive skin.

This is one of my favorite scrubs to use ! It is best to use like a once or twice a week or it will dry your skin out. But besides that it is my go-to scrub. I love it!

I have tried this scrub time and again. All it does is dry my skin out which, if you have oily skin would be great but having combination skin, it doesn't work for me.

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