I used the wear this when i had dry skin for a period of time. The small scrub includes in the lotion felt weird but after a while you get used to them.

This product is awesome for exfoliating! It takes off dry patches and leaves your skin feeling smooth and clean. It just didn't work for my acne though.

I use this once or twice a week to exfoliate my skin. Especially if I've been out in the hot sun with make up on! Just after I put a good moisturizer on!

Smells great and has little grains in it that scrub off all of the dead skin. I've used this since i was 13 because it is also very gentle on your skin.

I have been using this for he last 5+ years. I've noticed occasionally I'll break out using it. It smells good and helps with my super dry flakey skin.

This is a staple skincare product for me! I absolutely love the scrub and how it exfoliates my skin and it smells really good. It is also a good price.

One of my favorite scrubs for my face, but this product is not for people with sensitive skin. This exfoliates very good!! Leaves my skin feeling new.

This unfortunately was another product that didn't work well for me. I loved the little beads in the face wash that dissolved but it did little for me.

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