I really like this scrub. I only use it about once a week because it is kindof a harsh exfoliate but I did see results after about four uses

I use this stuff every day and I have been for at least 10 years. It leaves your skin feeling exfoliated and helps rid my nose of blackheads.

Absolutely love using this everyday. Makes me feel as if I really have a clean and fresh face. Doesn't leave my face feeling oily or too dry.
