I have been using this scrub for more than 3 years. This product clears my skin without being harsh on my skin. I have recomended this to my frieds and family. Easily available in the market and affordable too.

This product is great for deep exfoliation but it’s pretty harsh so you have to be very gentle when using it. Also I only use it once a week. It leaves my skin feeling really clean and exfoliated. Just make sure you use a good moisturizer afterwards.

This was a very good product, smelt nice and left the skin feeling very smooth. The price is relatively affordable and I was not disappointed with the product it self. However it was quite harsh on the skin but other than that I would recommend.

I don't know how much that helped the blemish or whatever about my skin, but all I remember is how intense the smell was. It felt artificial, very strong. If you like that, go for it, but it wasn't for me. Other than that, a nice fresh feeling, but which didn't last that long...

Wonderful scrub with such an amazing scent! Lovely exfoliation that truly does make your skin feel incredibly smooth afterwards. Very effective and would defiantly recommend. I would buy this product again!

I like this product, it smells great and keeps the skin exfoliated which helps unblock pores and therefore prevent breakouts, however I haven't seen a great difference in my blemishes because of it, so thats why it only gets 3 stars from me!

This product made my skin dry. I have sensitive skin so if you do too, i wouldn’t recommend . I bought it at Watson , it was a reasonable price . However it was quite disappointing. This was my first time using it and i wouldn’t try it again

I love this product. I always buy the two pack at Costco and save a lot of money. It works well with my skin and doesn’t leave my face feeling dry. When I feel a breakout coming on I scrub extra throughly.
