The grain of the scrub is too large. Using this just hurts my face. And it smells weird. I feel like the weird smell sticks to my face all day.

I really feel this product deeply cleanses. Not too harsh of a scrub. The scent is a bit too harsh for me. But overall one of my go to products

Keeps skin clear. Love how soft my skin is after using. Use all over once weekly, especially after shaving. It helps to prevent in grown hair.

Always leaves my face super fresh looking. I use this once or twice a week to exfoliate and I’m obsessed! Never dries out my face either

I have been using this product since I was 15 and I can always tell when I am out because my skin looks rough after a few days of not using it.
