This stuff smells so good and does a great job at exfoliating my skin. I will say though it doesn’t help with acne control as much as I would like.

Awesome product! I have extremely sensitive skin though, so using it caused mild irritation. I completely recommend it for people with light acne.

I have heard many people rave about this product. I got it to try myself and it made my skin horribly oily, and actually made me break out more!

If you're looking for a great face wash on a budget you've found what you're looking for. I'm probably on my fifth bottle. I can't stop buying it!

This makes my skin feel very soft and it helps in drying out pimples. I also love the apricot scent. This scrub doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.

I use this product every few days. I just don't feel the need to exfoliate every day, especially with a product that's kind of rough on the skin.

This is my all time favorite exfoliator . It's really cheap & gets the job done. It may take a while to see results but it all works out in the end

Good as a physical exfoliator, but pretty harsh. The beads are a bit large and the cream consistency  can leave a residue on your skin.

I use this at least 2 times a week. It makes your skin so soft and is a great combo with CeraVe face wash! Those are the two face cleansers I use.

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