me lo recomendaron como uno de los mejores exfoliantes pero a  mi no me probo para nada, lo use varias veces y deje de usarlo ya que vi que no me funciono, me dejaba la cara con mucha grasa y por ende me salian mas espinillas, lo regale a mi hermana que tiene la piel seca o mixta y le fue muy bien el problema fue conmigo

I love this scrub that much. I personally don't own it but my sister does. When she said to me to try it and saying it's good, well she didn't lie. It's really really good. Plus it has that salicylic acid that I love since I have acne prone skin. It doesn't dry my skin and it reduced my pimples. The smell is also great.

I found it smelled wonderful and exfoliated my face, removing a lot of dead skin however in areas where i suffer dry skin it did seem to irritated the area and leave it inflamed, I did seem to break out more in those areas after using this product. Would recommend for oily or normal skin but not the best for dry.

I have been using this face scrub for years and it has never failed me. I use it in the shower around 3-4 times a week. My skin feels so soft afterwards and I am never disappointed. I always try find new face scrubs, but always come back to this one. So if you love a good intense face scrub, then this is the one for you

I used to love this stuff but I’ve found since switching to less abrasive exfoliant my skinn is actually clearer. I like that it gives a great clean feeling but it’s quite harsh on the skin, much better for the face then the body. Really affordable. I like the green tea version for something more gentle then this!

I love this scrub. For the price it is brilliant. I use it every time I shower and take it on holiday with me. It helps to remove all the dirt from your face and take away any layers of dry skin, which is perfect for me as I have dry skin. The only thing I would improve on is the packaging. It can get a bit messy.

If one want a deep clean scrub for an affordable price but high price results this is the product for you. I have been using this scrub for years and use it at a minimum once a week. It makes my skin so clean and makes my skin glow. I have gotten my whole family using this product and I highly highly recommend it.

I just recently bought this and I’ve just used this once and I already love it. I can say that it was very effective because the next day, I had fewer bumps on my forehead and beside nose. I only bought the small version of this to test it out first but after I finish it, I’ll buy the big version of this. And it’s very affordable!!

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