As many others have mentioned, it's quite abrasive. I would recommend that you do not use this as a part of your daily routine but as a bi-weekly cleanser. I'm grateful that it is moisturizing but does not leave your skin feeling oily.

Great face scrub, use this every 3-4 days. Have repurchased this product many times. Great value for money, especially when it is on offer. It can be harsh, so you have to be careful to not over do it when using it.

Itchy texture to the scrub itself , which irritated my skin. However also left my skin feeling super clean and refreshed and no dirt left on my skin! Affordable! And a good known brand I would give it an overall 3-5

Me encanta este poducto! yo uso el exfoliador y la verdad es excelente. Siento que el precio es super bueno y hace un gran trabajo en la piel. es super generoso al momento del contacto con la piel. Siempre que se me acaba vuelvo a comprar otro, a mi que mi piel del cuerpo es seca me viene excelente. Super recomendado, te deja super suave el lugar donde te lo eches.

In my opinion it's a great product. I will buy again. I bought it for the first time a while back and i loved it. It is gentle to the skin. I think for what you pay for it's really nice. I will refer it to my friends

A great drugstore product which cleanses and exfoliates the skin. It's not my favourite to use on my face because the exfoliation side of it is quite sensitive on my skin, however it smells amazing and cleanses well!

This used to be my every day cleanser. It smells pretty ok, affordable & at every Target & Walmart. But as I grew my knowledge of skin care products I found this had a lot of unnecessary ingredients. I also learned a lot about skin care in general & my own skin. I have sensitive, combination, acne prone skin. There was just no need to exfoliate daily using this. Although the exfoliating gives you that deep clean feeling it does more harm than good. Eventually my skin started peeling. Not only was it peeling but it was getting raw to the skin! Unfortunately I had to let this product go. Short term use it was ok but long term usage was not so good.

This product was nasty on my skin, the exfoliant bits were very harsh and felt like my skin was being scratched and ruined every time I used it. However, this product did smell lovely!

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