Best scrub around town. Definitely worth the money! Package is cute. Kind of wish it came with a pump as i usually use my scrubs in the shower.

I love using this stuff. It not only works, but I can feel it working. My skin feels cleaner and firmer and properly exfoliated when I finish.

Very good at removing dead skin and cleaning out dirt from my pores. The product is a bit course so it can be an issue for very sensitive skin.

Rather good, but scrubs isn't as effective as my other cleansers. Feels good on the skin though. I just wish it would clear blemishes better.

This isnt the best for your skin. But is an okay exfoliant in a pinch. I wouldnt repurchase. Id rather spend the extra money for a better one.

This product is OK for the price although I think that it can be a little too harsh on my skin I do find if I only use it 2week its not so bad
