I like this a lot, but I have to be careful how often I use it - it can be a bit harsh on my sensitive skin. It does smell and feel really nice!!

This stuff works great when I'm feeling lazy. I take a bath and apply when u start and by the end my skin is smooth and blemishes are decreased.

Great product, use it almost daily. Love the scent, and the way it cleans. Doesn't leave me feeling oily or greasy. Also doesn't leave a shine.

Works well to keep acne breakouts to a minimum. However I have since switched to a sugar scrub, as a walnut scrub is quite abrasive on the skin.

An essential in my home. Even my 12 year old daughter adores this product! I only use it twice a week though. Can be a bit harsh for everyday use

I love using this product on my face. The only thing is I don’t recommend using it everyday it can over dry your skin. But it’s very affordable.

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