I really love this scrub 99% of the time. It smells great, has a nice consistency, and really gets your face clean! However, sometimes, the scrub can feel a little too abrasive. Usually, this is when I am having more of a sensitive skin day. Most of the time though, I love how scrubby it is and how clean it makes me feel!

I love this scrub because it leaves me feeling squeaky clean! It also smells really good so that is a mega bonus! I feel like it really does help control my blemishes and makes my skin feel really soft. The only con is that the microbeads are a hassle to clean and it harms the environment ): However it is really affordable!

I use this for dry skin. I'm 53, so acne isn't an issue. It cleans your skin throughly and rinses easily. The price is well worth it. A little goes a long way. You can find it almost any store.

I quite like this product as an exfoliant, and it smells AMAZING. Its pretty gentle on my fairly sensitive skin, and I like that it uses natural ingredients. don’t know that this product lives up to its name, and that’s what bothers me the most about this product. But I’ll still use it, just because I like it so much!

I don't have sensitive skin, so this exfoliate is perfect for me.  The aroma it produces is lovely as well.  It is of good value, and doesn't dry out skin; leaving face feeling fresh.  It met my expectations and exceeded them.  Go buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this cleanser!! My skin was so bad from acne scars. They were purple and i had pits in my outter cheek and they are completly gone! I still have some scars but it helps so much! It cleans my skin and my acne deffinatly was reduced when using
It is more harsh and abbrasive but i have sensitive skin and my skin has gotten used to it. I would deffinatly recommend this!

This is one of my favorite facial scrubs, I bought it from my local Walgreens and the price is pretty good. This worked for me because I have very oily skin and I do break out every once in a while, so every time I use it my skin looks and feels better. I use it in the morning and at night which helps my skin feel refreshed. Overall I really do love this product and I highly recommend that you try it out to see how it turns out for you!
