Will not buy again. Irritated my skin as well as my brothers. Did not like this products! Do not recommend for anyone with sensitive skin!

This has been my go to face wash for the past 15 years and I love it. It cleanses while exfoliating, but is gentle enough to use every day.

I love the feeling of the scrub! Really feels like it cleans my face. Sometimes it does leave my skin dry but some moisturizer helps a lot.

One of the only drug store face scrubs that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I would say this is comparable to higher end facial scrubs.

I’ve bought this for years. You only want to use once per week. I buy it at Target or Walmart. Helps get rid of dead skin. Great price too!

This product can be a little intense, which I don't really mind. What I DO mind, however, is that it made my skin break out really badly.

Love the smell and love that it's a scrub. For the price, it works great. Only reason I'm taking a star is that, product doesn't last long.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
