I've been using this for a few years now, I've tried other products that are usually too rough for my skin or cause me to breakout but this has been perfect!

I love this scrub. I use it every couple days and it makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. I've been using this for years and probably for years to come.

Super amazing product! Leaves face so soft and moisturized. The best part is its oil free so it's pretty much good for all skin types. Highly recommend it!

Unfortunately, I think my skin may just be too sensitive for this product. The little scrubby pieces in the scrub are just way to abrasives to the skin imo.

Too rough to use on sensitive skin. Useful for overall body scrub. Perhaps if you use it twice every two weeks, it would be better suited for sensitive skin.

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