Don’t over use this product. I recommend using this once a week to avoid dry patches. I didn’t see much change in my acne but my skin was soft afterwards.

I’ve used this since high school and it can be a bit rough but it works. I’d choose a good moisturizer to use after and definitely don’t use this every day

I personally use this everyday and I don't see myself using any other facial scrub. Others may disagree but I definitely would choose this over any other.

I have used this scrub for many years and it has yet to disappoint. It is great for exfoliating but is gentle at te same time. It also helps control acne.

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