I absolutely love this scrub! It leaves my face feeling clean and fresh, over a 3week period I noticed that my spots were clearing up and my skin tone started to even out. I have sensitive skin and it hasn't it one bit! Just be careful to not scrub too hard.

This has been a recent find and I'm currently still on the travel size tube, but it's becoming a strong favourite! Doesn't smell as soapy as most face washes do. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't cause any irritation so I'd definitely repurchase this one.

Brilliant face scrub, smells really nice. Love it to exfoiliate once a week. Really brightens my skins and leave it feeling clean. The particles aren't to rough for me and I have sensitive skin. I'm not left feeling sore.

I have repurchased this so many times, but after reading reviews and understanding ingredients and how bad scrubs are for the skin I haven’t repurchased again and would never buy it again. I stay away from physical exfoliaters now and use chemical ones instead

This is an amazing scrub. It is a little chunky and so therefore you must be careful as to not damage the top layer of the skin. It smells incredible and really gets deep into the pores. I've repurchased again and again.

This product is very easy to find in the supermarket, mini mart,.. Some people have sensitive skin won't like it because its scrub too big so it hurts on their face. But to me, it is comfortable. It is can use for face also for body. It cheap but quite good.

This scrub is a godsend, I used it for only 2 weeks and I can see a very noticeable difference in the appearance of acne on my face. It's grainy and textured which feels amazing on your skin. I use this both day and night every 2 days for the best results.

This is quite a rough exfoliant and is definitely on the more abrasive side of products. If, like me, you like a product that feels like it's scrubbing impurities away instantly, it's great. However if you have more sensitive skin, it may not be the best.

Feels niiice and smoooth. Really good. Maybe a bit pricey but it worths it. Skin feels amazing after this. Maybe a bit much gentle. I have acne and this helps a lot. I recomend it. You can find it in anyyy drugstore. Definitely buying again. Good product

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