I've used this less-expensive product for ages, and all of my grown daughters use it, too. It works, smells nice, rinses easily, and saves a bundle over high-priced alternatives.

The scrub always leaves my skin feeling refreshed and smooth. Even though I've used this product for a while now, I still can't decide whether it helps with my blackheads or not.

I've used this every morning for over 15 years and I can definitely feel it cleaning my skin. What really nice is after you wash your face with this scrub, it feel so soft and fresh.

It was a good scrub don't get me wrong but the only thing I didn't like was the fact that it was kind of harsh on my face. It was like I was scrubbing a pot scrubber on my face.

This is a great facial scrub at an affordable price. It does just as good of a job as the expensive brands. It has a nice scent and leaves your face feeling clean and smooth.

I use this almost every day for my after workout skin scrub. I've been using this product for over 4 years and love it. It leaves my face smooth and my pores clean and smaller.

I absolutely love this face scrub! Great scent and not too abrasive. I have used this stuff for years. It's currently in my shower and I use it anywhere from 2-3 times a week.

This used to be my favorite face scrub. I used to use it everyday in the shower. The only thing I didn't like too much was that it was harsh on my skin. Just a little too rough
