When I am having a bad breakout I wash my face with this a few times a week. Helps to prevent more and cleans and calms the blemishes I already have.

It's just a little too abrasive for my face but I love this as my body scrub! Especially on my arms to get rid of those pesky little white head bumps.

I like using face scrubs but most of them irritate my skin and leave it feeling dry. But this didn't and left my skin with a light moisturized feeling.

I loved the old one that came in. Tub. This product is ok but not a good as the old one. I don't get that clean feeling after I use this product.

Exfoliates well! Smells great! No cons, over all it's a nice face wash! I like to leave it on as a mask while I get my shower ready then scrub it off.

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