This is a daily face wash scrub for me, I love it! It gives your skin a refreshing feeling. It gets rid of the oil on your face but doesn’t dry your skin which is perfect. I highly recommend this product! This product can be used any time of the day but I usually use it in the morning and before bed.

This is my absolute favorite fave scrub. The smell is amazing. I love the way it feels rubbing it on my face. I feel like my face is really clean after and it’s always soft and looks great. I recommend it to everyone.

My mom gave this to me when I was in middle school and started getting acne (those teen years!!) it is a great exfoliant and is quite gentle on the skin! your skin feels so smooth and refreshed after you use it. I suggest using it in the shower when your skin is soft and your pores are open from the hot water. I would suggest this to anyone of any age!!

It worked beautifully at the beginning and throughout the time I used it my skin was pretty clear. I did not find it drying nor did it make my skin oily, and it did help with my breakouts, but it is probably too harsh for most people. Probably best to only use 2-3 times a week for an exfoliant.

This scrub I use only when my skin is breaking out, and it honestly works wonders. I usually get little breakouts on my forehead and by using this scrub they go away. I love it! I would definitely keep purchasing it.

Love this face wash. Smells amazing and does wonders for my arm pimples and face. Leaves a clean sensation and it shows great results. Only $4 for this is sooo worth it. I’ve tried other products but this is amazing.

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