I personally love this scrub. It is a little rough so you have to be gentle but it works so well and helps keep breakouts away. Great for any skin type.

I use this on my legs a lot as an exfoliator because the mixture is extremely course and maybe a bit painful. Great for my body, not so much for my face!

Love this! It can be a little much for day to day use. I recommend using it every 2 weeks or only when needed. Gives great exfoliation and a deep clean.
