I've sworn by this scrub for at least 4 years now. It's not harsh, but it exfoliates effectively, especially around my t-zone. The smell is very neutral.

This is a good exfoliator but leaves skin very dry. It's best not to use on a daily basis...maybe on skin/body but not so much the face! Love the scent!

I seriously love this facial scrub for exfoliating! After I use it, my skin is much more even and I have noticed less acne and breakouts since using it!

I use this scrub every other day and it leaves my skin extremely soft and clear. It's really cheap for the amount it costs and how much product you get.

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!

I use this product everyday. It doesn't really destroy acne but it does calm it. It cleans the face well. I like to use this product with my Clearsonic.

It worked to fight and prevent clogged pores but it would dry my skin out and make it feel different. It didn't leave my skin feeling smooth and natural

Face scrubs are not meant to use everyday! You should only use a face scrub at the most twice a day, otherwise your skin will get irritated and over dry.

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