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.

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 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.

I use this scrub every morning. I follow it up with an astringent toner and my asking is blemish free and a baby soft. I also use a bb cream instead of lotion in my face. Great product

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 been using this for years and it has helped me maintain clear skin. Whenever I find that my breakouts become prevalent, I use this and by the next morning I see an improvement.
