For the price it's a great exfoliate however if u tried a high-end exfoliate u would realize the course granules in st gives exfoliatoes actually are bad for your skin. Its very harsh and scratches your skin surface instead of removing dry skin. I find it better for the body instead.

Love these exfoliators from this brand! Whichever one is on sale I tend to aim towards. First I cleanse my face then use this to exfoliate, it makes my face feel sooo smooth and has helped me with acne

I use to really like this product the only problem is is that it's really harsh if your not carful. Also I've read that because it's made out of pulp the "scrubby bit" is uneven meaning when you scrub you may scrub deeper than realising and actually cause more damage than you realise

This product was quite disappointing for me! Seen a lot of hype about it on YouTube! Very affordable and smells lovely! Does leave skin soft but the little grains in the wash don't seem to break down when scrubbing skin! You end up with all these little grains stuck to your face!

Works well and lasts for a long time. Good for sensitive skin and doesn't lead to soreness or itching like past products I have used. Given to me as a gift by a family member. Would recommend to others with sensitive and oily skin types. Good price for the quality of product.

My best friend for over 5 years. It is rather a harsh exfoliant, but i personally prefer a harsh exfoliant once in a while to really get off every last drop of dirt and dead skin cells. I use this once or twice a week and it has kept my skin baby soft since i can remember. And for the price? Incredible.

I don't think there's anything bad I can say about this scrub. I love everything about it. I love that it's made using as many natural ingredients as possible, it smells so lovely and fresh and it doesn't leave your skin feeling tight or dry after using, like so many scrubs.

I have used this since i was 12 years old...and still have it in my cupboard. It works for most skin types and is amazing for light to deep cleansing/ exfoliating. Definitely buy it and try it out for yourself, you will find yourself buying it every trip you take to the drug store

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