As much as i love the result, i do not prefer to buy this brand myself because of intense fragrances. For some reason, every use of the product triggered my allergies.

Been using this for years, since I was a teenager. No issues with it, continue to love and use this product. Makes my face feel soft and clean and doesn't dry my skin.

Really deep cleaning scrub that doesn't irritate my skin. It was not chemically harsh and didn't fully strip my skin of everything but left it feeling smooth and clean. I would only recommend using it once or twice a week.

I purchased this product a month ago and it was the best deal ever! For a low price I got great results. I usually get hormonal breakouts but when I started using this product I swear that it lessened my monthly problem.

I love this product alot. It has got fine granules which exfoliates the skin very well and the Salicylic acid in it gives me fresh radiant clear glowing skin. I swear by it, it's an amazing scrub I have ever come across.

I have been using this product since I got bad acne as a young teen. Not only does it smell and work great, but the exfoliating beads make for a great massage too :)

I love using this stuff, its inexpensive and pretty effective. The one downfall is that the little scrubbing bits stick to the sink and shower. They don't easily rinse away like other scrubs do
