This is my favorite drugstore brand face scrub. It is affordable, and great for my skin. The exfoliating beads give the perfect amount of exfoliation.

My go to! I use it only a few times a week so it doesn't dry out my skin but it leaves you with the best feeling of smooth skin and helps prevent breakouts

I didn't like this as much as I thought i would. I love the microbeads but it left me oily and not cleansed. may be different for non oily skinned ladies.

While priced right, I found this scrub way too harsh for my skin. If you don't have sensitive skin it's probably fine, but it is a rather strog exfoliator.

This doubles as an amazing foot and hand scrub if you decide to have a night of self-pampering! Definitely something on my shopping list every few months.

Works well and smells nice. I have used on and off throughout the years. Definitely moisturize after using, tends to dry my skin out if I'm not careful.
