I love the way this product makes my skin feel sooth after using it.. feels like a baby's cheeks! Love be honest though, it's rather rough and heavy duty so if you have sensitive or delicate skin, I wouldn't recommend this particular line.

I love how this product makes my skin so soft and clean after each use. I don't really break out a lot and haven't really noticed if it helps with preventing blackheads, but it is a product that I really love. THe way it smells is great too!

My #1 facial cleanser!!! I've tried other face washes, but nothing ever compares to this stuff. My skin feels brand new and so soft after every use. It truly exfoliates EVERYTHING. The holy grail of all scrubs. I'll recommend this to anybody!

I have been using this for a very long time on and off due to my sensitive skin. My skin feels clean and fresh after use, once or twice a week because it does tend to make my skin dry out. But overall very great scrub for a reasonable price!

I enjoy the smell of this product and the way it feels, however afterwards I didn't feel like my face was fully clean! I also feel like I need a lot more of the product to fully clean my entire face than with other facewashes. It is very afforadable though if your looking for something easy!

This is my holy grail face wash! It is great for clearing up blemishes. It leaves the skin soft and smooth without drying it out. Plus if you do have any scabs or dry skin on your face, the exfoliating beads gently fix those types of problems.

I love this product, really makes my skin feel clean and help be not to break out! My-go to, been using it for years.

Its not expensive, and it lasts me a long time! 

It does dry out your skin just a little bit, but I don't mind. I just apply a moisturizer afterwards.

I've been using this product since I was a child- it's always worked! It has occasionally dried out my skin but it has never been a major irritation, just patches over the normally dry spots. I love it and it has always been a go to for me.

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