I’ve used this facial wash/scrub since I was a teenager. I don’t think I’ll ever stop purchasing it. It gives me just the right amount of scrub I need after working out or wearing makeup all day. I love this product.

It’s a great product only if you truly continue using it. It does what it’s aimed for which is nice as a whole. It doesn’t leave the skin dry like other products. It also leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed.

seriously this is the best exfoliator out of high end or drugstore, hands down. I have always loved to exfoliate my skin, body included (which I have used with this as well!!!) and it is amazing, but not for sensitive skin!!
This stuff is so exfoliating, it honestly could cause irritation if you do it hard enough but it is just perfect if you really need new skin fast!!
Great packaging, not messy at all like some others I've tried. The blemish control defoliator is definitely the best working for extreme exfoliation but if you do want something more gentle then the moisturizing version of this scrub is also very nice, very gentle but of course not as intense or exfoliating as the blemish control formula.

Cleans and exfoliates my skin and leaves it feeling soft and clean. It meet my expectations. I bought mine from Walmart. Very effective at exfoliating the skin. I have sensitive skin and it was gentle enough for me.

This is one of my favorite face washes. Leaves my skin feeling great, and does not leave it feeling dry. Great product and I would definitely recommend it to a friend. You can purchase it at Kroger or any drug store.

I use this about 2 times a week as an exfoliant and I think it works great. It is kinda rough on the skin so I wouldn't use excessively, but it works for getting off dead skin. I would repurchase again in the future

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