This product works pretty well for my skin. It has exfoliating beads that remove any dry skin. It comes in many different scents and the packaging is simple but not boring. I will for sure continuing buying this.

I forgot how much I love this stuff. I use it every other day and it makes my skin feel so fresh and clean. I love that you can buy it in a tub or a squeezy tube. I would recommend this product to anyone that has oily/combination skin

Best and cheap exfoliate on the market! It makes my oil products go down a lot! It is a little harsh so don't use it everyday. I'm a repeat user I buy this all the time. I would totally recommend this to anyone!

I love this scrub. I love that it has natural exfoliants, deep clean action. Apricot is nice, but its nit my favorite. Id love to try it in a different scent. Eucalyptus would be amazing.

I like to use this when I feel like my face needs a deeper clean. My pores tend to tighten after use & my face feels smoother. The only thing is that I wish it had safer ingredients.

This makes me skin so soft! It has so many little beads to gently exfoliate my skin while also deep cleaning it to get excess makeup residue. It also smells sooooo amazing. It leaves your skin feeling brand new.
