After using this face wash, my face feels very refreshed. However, the bad thing about this product is that the scrubs tend to hurt if I wash my face too roughly.

When I need something quick, inexpensive and works, this is my go to body scrub. I feel it's a little to harsh for my face, but fine for elbows, knees, and legs.

I love this face scrub! I use it a few times a week, as instructed, in the mornings and I leave for work with a freshly hydrated clean face. Cheap drugstore product everyone must have.

I have the bigger size and I used to love this. It didn't really remove any blemishes. It just made my skin feel great after washing it. Still use it time to time.

An amazing, extremely abrasive scrub that keeps gunk out of pores. However, definitely not for sensitive skin or skin prone to redness, as it will cause breakouts.

I love this is like a weekly scrub for acne prone skin. I've used it for years. It's a great exfoliant, natural/organic (I think), smells pretty nice, and is dirt cheap! Like $1-2.
