I give this three stars because I honestly feel like every time I used this scrub all it did was make me break out. Not that great.

Nice but don't use it will have a very bruised face. A tiny bit does the job. Kinda hate that it's not dissolve-able.

My mom swears by this scrub but it's just not for me. I don't really like microbeads... I prefer the facial cleansers without them.
