This really does the job. I love it. My skin is smooth. I use it on my arms, too sometimes. It makes my skin feel soft and doesn't take away too much moisture.

I honestly like the exfoliation and smell, but it definitely can do serious damage to your skin. It shouldn't be used every single day as it can be too rough.
