This is by far the best facial wash I’ve used. It’s gritty texture scrubs your face but is not too rough for my extremely sensitive skin. It also smells very nice and leaves your face soft and hydrated feeling

This scrub is a tried and true favorite of mine. It is very inexpensive and gives great results. It is a little gritty but I like a gritty scrub to use a few times a week. i have purchased this many times and will continue to purchase it because it makes my skin feel fresh and clean.

I love this! Its a great facial scrub to use in the shower. Whenever my face or neck is feeling rough I use this to smooth my skin out. I usually use it 3 times a week ... if I’m having a really bad breakout.

Another amazing exfoliating wash that I use about 2-3 times a week. It's very gentle on the skin, not to harsh. I've been using it for years and I've never had any problems with it.

Love this scrub! It's been my face scrub since middle school! I like the fact that it's pretty harsh but you don't need to use it every day. I buy mine at target and Walmart all the time ! Great price too!

I always keep this on hand. The exfoliation is gentle, but the beads are rough enough to make it exfoliate. I think it tends to dry my skin out a bit, so I always moisturize afterwards really well. I use this a few times a week. Especially for the price, it's a great deal!

This works so good on my face I rarely got pimples and it smells good to me. It isn’t rough on my skin and it makes my skin soft it lasts me awhile and a little bit of it goes a long ways. I do recommend others to get it

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