Used to use this but soon enough realised it was too rough for my skin, I also couldn't bring myself to the smell so just let go of it.

Ues this 3-4 times a week. Nice face scrub. Scent isn't to strong. Strong enough that even my husband can use it after a day in a shop.

This product has a nice smell, it works fairly good. It keeps your skin very soft. However it didn't work well with my acne prone skin
