I love this product! It is a frequent visitor in my shower. Especially when I'm on my period because I tend to break out around that time.

You can use this pretty much anywhere you have acne. I've used it on my chest and shoulders and it works wonders. My husband even uses it!

I use this every time I shower to exfoliate my dead skin on my face! It's so affordable & works so good!!! I don't find it abrasive at all.

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 use this to clear off the dead, dry skin off my face. My husband also uses it as a shave prep. Love the scent and how easy it is to use.

Loved the smell and the effectiveness of this product is great. The only down side is the exfoliating elements. It's very rough on my skin.
