This created tiny tears all over the surface of my skin. The scrub is too harsh for me. I also broke out from this. Would not recommend for sensitive skin.

I have been using this produce since I was 13! It is my favorite exfoliating scrub and I use it on my whole body! Deep cleans better than any other scrub.
