This product is amazing! A little size about the finger tip is good enough, long lasting, helps get rid of your pimple/acne. It helps smooth out my face too.

I love this scrub! It smells so good and really feels like I'm getting a deep clean! I would recommend using this in the shower because it is a little messy.

Love this product! Keeps acne and black heads under control. Only down fall is that it dries my skin out. Follow up with lotion and this scrub is perfect!!!!

This scrub is a little on the harsh side so I only recommend using it once a week. However, it definitely helps get all the dead skin off . It smells yummy!

I like it because I feel it is good to scrub away the dead skin cells on my skin but as far as removing all my blackheads I feel it doesn't get the job done

I really liked this stuff, it made my face feel clean and didn't smell horrible. However, it didn't do anything to control my blemishes, so I had to move on.
