This is a decent scuba I use about 2-3x a week while in the shower. It's a good exfoliator and smells nice.

I use this once a week because I feel like too much exfoliation isn’t good for the skin. When I’m doing a face mask I like to use this to was all the junk out of my pores. It leaves my skin soft and clean. Highly recommend

It is a nice scrub that I used to use in the shower all the time, but it was a little to drying for my dry skin.

I use this as a part of my weekly routine, and have been for the past several years. It will always be my go to anti-acne facial cleanser!! The scent is divine, it cleans my pores, and definitely prevents any acne. Highly recommend

This product smooths my skin without over drying and turning it red. It’s not too harsh, but is perfect for revving up your skin a few times a week when you want a deep clean. It also smells and feels great.

Usually you’re suppose to use scrubs 2 a week, but I use this 4 times a week especially when my face is feeling super oily/dirty. I find it effective when cleansing my pores. I think they improved when they made the little exfoliants natural, because it doesn’t clog up your drain.

This saved my skin last winter when I had a horrible breakout paired with dry skin. It exfoliated the dry and dead skin away and help with the acne as well!

I used to use this product all the time and now my daughter uses it.. The price is good and affordable you can feel the acne medication in the scrub when you apply it.. This one has exfoliating particles but it is not too intense on the skin so I really enjoyed it..

This product is super effective on those with blackheads and acne bumps on troubesome areas of the face such as your forehead and nose. It's super inexpensive and a great value for how long it lasts. I'd recommend using this scrub every 2 days so prevent over exfoliation and breaking your skin barrier!

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
