I really like this product and after I use it my skin feels great but it's not something you use all the time. Maybe every 2 weeks would be best

I love the clean feeling of my skin when I used this product however it left my skin dry and dull. The texture is a little too tough for my skin.

I used this product for a few weeks. I didn't notice a difference. I still had a lot of breakouts. The good thing is, it didn't dry my skin out.

I don't feel like this product effective helps with my blemishes so this was just an okay product for me I would much rather use something else.

I love the scent of this scrub. It’s coarse but not super rough. I can feel it scrubbing away the bad and leaving my skin super smooth and soft.

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