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.

Terrible. It causes breakouts. It does smell great but don't be fooled. It also dried out my skin so I do not recommend it for sensitive skin

I have used this product a long time ago and it broke me out. I'm guessing they might have changed their formula but I had to stop using this.

The best scrub I have used so far, it made my skin so soft and yet it wasn't dry after. You could actually feel it working when you put it on.
