This deserves 10 Stars!!!! I use this as a daily exfoliator and it works wonders getting rid of the dead excess skin on the top layer of your skin! I am obsessed with this product and also recommend mixing it in with a moisturizing body or face wash as it does tend to dry skin that is already dry to begin with.

Smells Great, But Didn't Work For My Skin.. It Seemed To Just Make My Skin Oily... It Just Wasn't Right For My Skin, My Friend On The Other Hand Seemed To Like It.

It is as if you were to step on peaches and mush them into a packaging as though they would turn to wine. Smells like old peach and can be a bit harsh on the skin.

I've used this a couple of times but doesn't do much for me. I wish it was a little less oily too. I used it a long time ago so maybe I should give it another go.

I used to use this frequently but it made me break out more. It's relatively cheap and as a broke college student, I couldn't really afford more expensive brands.

This product really exfoliates your face well, leaving you with smooth, fresh skin. I like the scent, but it's definitely not something you should use every day.

I love the smell and works pretty good. I only recommend you use it two pr three times a week and not to scrub too hard. It's a good buy for what you pay for it.

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