Great facial scrub. And it’s not harsh on my gentle skin. I use this about once or twice a week. It does leave my skin feeling a little dry after using but it’s nothing a little moisturizer doesn’t help with. Would definitely recommend to those who have oily skin.

This product smells great, however every time I have used it to wash my face, I have always ended up with the small particles contained in the product in my eye, which is very painful at times. I purchased this product at Duane Reader, but do not think I would buy again.

This is the one and only face scrub/exfoliator I will use! I'm only on my second bottle but it's safe to say it's my favorite! I use it daily to clean my face and although it's a little harsh, it's not too abrasive. It gets all my makeup off and leaves my face soft and so fresh!

This is a good face wash if your skin is sensitive and if you have acne that is just like a few bumps. I loved the smell and how it wasn't made from really bad chemicals. You can find it at Walmart or Target or any grocery store.

I have used this exfoliator for many years and it has never let me down! I have dry patches on my cheeks and I use this at least 3 times a week and it keeps my skin soft and clear of any dryness! It is gentle enough to use often.

Keeps my skin nice and clean and exfoliated. Great for acne prone skin. Cleans out all pores. Very good value. Convenient packaging and nice packaging. A little drying on the skin but nothing too harsh. Buy all the time no other cleanser does this good of a job.

This scrub is amazing!!!!!! I definitely recommend to use this if you have occasional breakouts. I used it everyday for a week and it dried out my skin, so I began using it once a week. This is a very inexpensive scrub that works!

I really like this cleanser especially for everday blemish control. The smell is nice and it isn't harsh so it can definitely be used everyday. I like the natural ingredients and I have bought it a couple of different times and would definitely recommend to others.

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