Smells great and left my skin feeling super smooth. It is great at minimizing pores and it just leaves that new skin freshness. Great product.

Love the beads in this scrub always makes me feel very clean and fresh. Plus the it smells very good. Only bad thing is it drys your face out.

This is hands down my favorite store brand face wash. I use this every morning to wake myself up! The exfoliation really makes a difference!

It always dried out my skin big time . I like the smell and I like the idea of exfoliating my skin but in reality it didn't work we'll for me.

Great scrub for the price! I like that this really exfoliates and doesn't leave your face dry. May be too harsh for people with sensitive skin.

I use this on and off all the time and I really do like it. Although sometimes I find it a little rough, I do really like using this product.

For daily use, this scrubbing cleanser is great. It does a good job for basic cleaning but does not hold up as well against acne breakouts.
