The best!!! It's great for dry and combo skin, very moisturizing I use it every night before bed and it leaves my skin feeling very moisturized.

I've been using this ever since I was a teenager. I do enjoy the nice abrasive feel because it is an exfoliant so i do try and use it sparingly.

It's a great scrub but can be harsh so I'd suggest using it once a week. It will dry out your skin after using it for a while so don't over do it.

I can't say it's necessarily prevented any breakouts, but I love how clean and soft my face feels after using this scrub. The best for exfoliating!

I've used this product off and on since I was a teenager. I used to see it in my grandma's restroom and sneak it. It's a great cheap exfoliate.
