This is a great exfoliator leaves the skin silky smooth!
i have been using it for a month now and even though it hasn't helped get rid of my acne it hasn't irritate my skin and caused more pimples like most exfloiators usually do,
But even though it does not get rid of my acne i would buy this product again because i love how soft it makes my skin feel without it feeling dry after use.

I liked this product a lot. I switched from proactiv so my skin could get used to this. This was very effective and the packaging is very nice. I bought it at Walmart and would definitely recommend this product for those with non sensitive skin since this product is a rougher scrub.

I quite enjoyed using this product, it let my skin feeling very soft and clean. My pores were unclogged at the end of the day thanks to the scrub. I can't say that it's 100% gentle, but I would recommend this to those who needs a deep clean.

This product has been in my life since I was a kid, or at least variations of it. Before I learnt about skin care, this was a family used product. I recently repurchased it and actually just used it to wash my face and I feel amazing. My skin is tight and clean and feeling fabulous!

This was very coarse on my face, but without actually getting out any blackheads. I found it did soothe my skin and complexion but that was about it. It was very expensive for what it was, considering it was only a high street purchase. Wouldn't recommend.

This is my go to face scrub. It smells nice, has a good price and lasts for months. It can be rather rough on the skin with the exfoliating bits but I personally like that in a scrub. It leaves my face feeling fresh and clean from the day.

Favorite scrub. It works perfectly. I used it on my chest and arms, also for my face. It really helps me keep my pores clean and better the appearance of my skin.

This scrub had been one of my life savers for many years. I love the smell and way my skin feels after. It isn't hard on my sensitive skin nor is it drying. It definitely helped me rid myself of blemishes and large pores as it's intended to

Everyone I know has raved about this product so I thought I would give it a go and at first it worked really well and seemed to be okay on my skin and then after a while it seemed like it was aggravating my skin a lot and was actually causing more spots than trying to clear my skin up, as soon as I stopped using it my skin cleared up within a week. Don't think its the best product if you have dry and kind of sensitive skin

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