I'm very neutral about this product. I tried using it on my arms and legs once and it felt very harsh, though my arms felt decently soft afterwards. I was hoping it would remove my dry spots, but it never did after multiple uses. It is worth a try, but I didn't see that much of a result.

Love this scrub!  The smell is not too strong but very nice.  The feel of the scrub on my face is awesome!  It feels like it's softly scrubbing away any face junk! I recommend this to all my family and friends and I will definitely keep buying this product plus most anything from this brand!

I have sensitive skin and this was really rough on my face. It caused me to breakout and it hurt. I wouldn't really recommend this product for people who have sensitive skin but it might work good for those who don't.  The only good thing about it to me was that I  really liked the smell of it and  it didn't cost very much.

Only used this product twice, because I have never actually owned it myself, but it's definitely going to be a next purchase because even though I only used it twice, I absolutely loved it, I feel like it really really helped my skin, and it's something I'll definitely add to a cleaning routine.

I've been using this product for over 5 years. I've switched to other product after I read that it could be bad for your skin but I found that nothing help my skin or exfoliated as well as this product does. In my opinion use what works for you, if you're in search of a exfoliator try this out!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I have been using this since I was a teen. The scrub makes my face feel like I have just had a facial. This product was purchased for my teens when they needed to begin using face wash and we have used it ever since. This is always a must in my bathroom cabinets.

I have been using this product for going on 7 years now. The tiny exfoliating beads buff away dead skin and impurities leaving soft and glowing skin. This face scrub comes in a tube with lots of product for a low price. Genuinely feels like a spa treatment in the comfort of your own home!

I will never use another face scrub. This is all that I always use. I have been using it for years. It makes my face so soft and makes me feel so clean. I always have to wash my face with it! Other scrubs make me feel gross. I’ve tried high end to drug store. This is Mt absolute favorite.
