I absolutely love this exfoliater! Not only is it affordable but it is totally AMAZING! I have never had a breakout whilst using this and I always feel so clean and refreshed after using it. I like that it isnt harsh on my skin and I keep going back to buy it again and again. I would recommend this to anyone. My skin changes from oily to dry and either way this works on my skin extremely well.

This scrub is awful, it causes microtears to the skin. I would not recommend this product to anyone, it is way to harass to be used in the face

Just recently picked up this scrub and it is amazing. For the price point, You absolutely can’t go wrong. It’s gentle enough to use daily, and exfoliates my skin thoroughly. After use, my skin feels so soft and fresh. Also, this product smells amazing!!
