I can't say much about this product, it has a great smell, but as a difference on my skin I haven't felt much of it .. maybe it varies from person to person

The few times I used it , it made it 10 times worst. It may of been my skin type but I found it made the break out way worst instead of actually helping it.

Perfect scrub unless you use it too much it could be harsh. Recently bought it for a resonable price! Love the smell too, keeps blackheads and pimples away.

Gets all of my dead skin off & a really good clean. I love this product, but feel like it isn't something I'd use on a daily basis & possibly twice a week.
