My roommate swears by this face scrub, while I find it too abrasive during winter months when my skin is extremely dry. It is reasonably priced!

This is my favorite face wash, not only does it smell amazing (really clean smelling) it has the grit that exfoliates your face as you wash it.

This scrub, if used to often can tend to CAUSE blemishes, then get rid of them. Therefore, I find it useful to use it only 1 maybe twice a week.

This is the best scrub I've found. Fine scrub means its not to harsh and painful to use but does the job perfectly and leaves my skin silky soft!

The scrub is amazing in the sense that it does exfoliate however, I think if the grains/beads were smaller they would get the blackheads better!
