Good wash as far as not over drying the skin. Pleasant scent, and I love the way my skin feels after using it. However I didn't find improvement with blackheads or pores.

This product is always on the shelves and there's a reason! People like it and it works. I'm a big fan of clean faces, and this stuff works great to scrub your face clean.

My skin is super sensitive. When using this I broke out really bad. Strangely enough I like it though. Not the breaking out, but the way it smells and how it feels.

This is definitely my go to scrub. I have tried so many out there and this is the only one that has the coarse beds inside and gets the job done. My husband uses it also.

I use this when I feel I need something extra to scrub my face. It's not too harsh on my skin. It feels like it really takes off whatever is on my skin. It smells good too.

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