I love this product but definitely don't recommend everyday use. My skin didn't dry out so much but it seems like more breakout occurred if I used it too often.

Love love love this scrub. It smells good and feels good. I like the gritty feeling of it, and it makes my face feel even cleaner. It is a little pricey however

It makes my face feel fresh and I love the beads but I didn't think it helped my blackheads or acne. Its good for a regular face wash but not an acne treatment.

I like to use this after a full face to really get excess makeup off my face. This product can be a bit harsh on the face if used daily so be careful when using

I have extremely sensitive skin, making me super skeptical of anything I buy. This was a bad choice. Pretty bad breakout as soon as I rinsed it off. Bad idea...

I used this for about a year and it really made my face so clean. It worked especially well when I needed it in the summer. It smells great too which is a plus.

After using it, it left my skin feeling smooth and soft. I love this, and I don't use it daily, but I try to use it at least twice a week for clean smooth skin.
