I really love this face scrub, it is gentle on my sensitive skin and it smells wonderful! Other exfoliating scrubs make my skin red and dry but not this one!

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!
