I've been using this product for almost 3 years now. I use this in the shower on my severe chest acne and it had dramatically improved.

I use this face wash in the shower and I like how it has beads in it. I bought this at Rite Aid. I would recommend and would buy again.

For me, it's a little too grainy. The larger seed bits (or whatever they are) feel scratchy on my skin. I don't care for this scrub.
