This is good for a couple days of the week but it should not be used everyday. It definitely smells well but will stick to the bottom of your shower beware

This is an effective and gentle way to cleanse the skin. It exfoliates and cleans deep into the pores and feels great on the skin. Doesn't dry my skin out.

I love this stuff when I need the extra exfoliation. But keep in mind it is very harsh on your skin! Keep the abrasive scrubs for when you really need it!

Love the way this makes my skin feel. I use it twice a week for a deep clean and exfoliation treatment. Have been using for years and will continue to use.

This is a great exfoliant for extreme cases but you have to keep in mind that it makes micro scratches in your sin so it should only be used OCCASIONALLY.

I love this scrub.. I only use once a week, because I started to notice that my face breaks out in red lines because my skin is so sensitive with over use.

Tyne only facial scrub I will buy. Keeps my face feeling soft and clean and helps keep breakouts away. It doesn't dry my face out like other products have

I've been using this for years and I have almost severe acne. It doesn't clear it up, but maybe it would for someone with a few pimples. It helps a little.
