This is my holy grail product. I not only use it on my face, but on my body too, after a workout to keep my pores are cleaned out and help with any dry skin I may have.

The scrub is pretty rough with the large exfoliating beads but I use small amounts gently on my face and it leaves my skin feeling really smooth, but is kind of drying.

This scrub smells nice and leaves skin feeling refreshed. It just didn't seem to keep blemishes away! I've been using this product for years and I don't see myself switching.

This scrub is great. I love it. It helps my face to remove the leftovers( makeup)after washing my face. I always use a toner afterward. Love the way it makes my face feeling fresh and clean.

I love the smell of this product, but it was a little too harsh on my skin to use every day. It also left residue that was hard to clean off of my washcloth. I don't use this product anymore.

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