I don't mind the smell of this, but I don't care for how scratchy it is and it seems to irritate my skin quite a bit. If I use it, a breakout isn't far behind.

I have used this for years and it works well to keep my face smooth. The green tea version smells heavenly. It doesn't keep blemishes away as well as it states

I currently have this as my nighttime facial scrub. It is amazing for the price I paid. The beads are not too rough and the formula isn't irritating to my skin.

I got this in my campus vox box earlier this year and I've been using the same one every since. I really can see a diminish in the size of the pores on my nose.

I really like this product for the winter since my face tends to get really dry and flaky. The only problem i have about it is it tends to be a little abrasive.

I love this product! It smells wonderful and leaves your skin feeling soft. It is a little harsh so I do recommend only using it to exfoliate 1-2 times a week.
