Very harsh exfoliant. Very drying. Irritated my skin. I love the smell & the price, but just isn’t the best choice for exfoliating with acne.

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 in the shower and it's not too rough on my skin which is why I love it so much, plus the peach scent? You can't go wrong with that

I loved the way my skin felt after using this but I stopped using after numerous skin care professionals told me how bad this is for my skin.

This product is helping me eliminate my acne in a timely manner,but leaves some exfoliating pieces behind if you didn't rinse your face well.
