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've been using this scrub for so long now, and I don't think I'll find one that I love just as much as this one. It smells great and leaves my skin feeling so clean afterwards. Would recommended to any skin type!!

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.

I have very sensitive skin, and this scrub doesn't irritate my skin at all. It's gentle enough to not irritate my skin but it still removes dead skin and leaves my skin feeling smooth.

This is a great scrub! It effectively exfoliates the skin without making it feel dry or stripped afterwards. My skin is always left feeling extremely smooth and cleansed. The smell is really nice and fresh too.

I use this scrub for face and body and it really works. I love that it's natural and smells really good too. My skins feels really smooth and clean every time I use it. Sometimes I feel it lacks exfoliation as you need to use a lot for a deep clean.

Bought this product after seeing loads of good reviews, and I enjoyed it! Remember that it is a scrub though, so wouldn't recommend using every day, as it can be a bit harsh on skin. Would buy again if on offer!

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