My skin can be kind of sensitive so this isn't the best thing for my face personally but other than that it seemed to work and smelled a lot better than most scrubs!

I have yet to try a product that works so amazingly. Use it every morning and couldn't be happier with my skin. It does not have an overpowering smell which I love.

This product is listed as a face wash but its too harsh for the skin on your face. the grans are to large. But it is amazing as a body scrub works wonders on my feet.

This is all I have ever used and I love the way it makes my skin feel! So soft and clean. I use it when I wake up and when I go to bed and my skin couldn't be better!

I bought this scrub because I was looking for a good exfoliator. This perfectly fit my requirements. It has a very good smell and leaves my skin soft after I use it.

If you have acne prone skin this product it's for you. It will exfoliate your skin giving you a healthy and clean feel. Use 2 or 3 times a week to avoid irritation.

I've been using this for years and i love it. It really exfoliates you skin and makes it feel clean. It doesn't have much of a scent and it removes my make up well.

This was always my "go-to" blackhead scrub. It really did help me. Not so much now that I'm older, not sure if its due to hormone change or the products was changed.

This product smells and works great. The only down side is that the scrub may affect you if you have sensitive skin. I prefer to use this on my legs before I shave.
