Works great my skin feels refreshed and not irritated at all! I like that it's not harsh on my skin. Price isn't bad and I like the container

It does make your skin smooth and soft, but if you have sensitive skin or acne it could make it worse... Don't use everyday, kinda too abrasive

This product works really well and smells good. However, I don't like how thick the texture is and it really hurts if you get it in your eyes.

I've always loved this scrub and the way it makes my face feel after use but recently i've heard that the scrub within it is bad for your skin.

This stuff is awesome!!! Exfoliates very well and keeps breakout under control. Probably best to use only three times a week. I love this stuff
