You feel those beads scrubbing away at your face. This as always been one of my favorite face scrubs. Smells good. Great price. Leaves my face looking bright. I love it.

This has been a staple of my beauty routine for many years now, its a great scrub for an unbeatable price. Its on the large and coarse size and can be quite abrasive so proceed with caution. I have never had any negative reactions to it and always keep  a tube in my shower. The smell is nice, and always delivers smooth shiny exfoliated skin. I will be buying this one over and over for years to come.

This is a pretty good facial cleanser although it didn’t quite meet my expectations it had an average performance. The packaging however was quite nice it came at a good price I bought it in a pack of three, maybe it was just me but it didn’t affect my skin much except for temporarily smoothing my skin.

I love this exfoliator. After hearing about it all over social media, I decided to give it a go. And for the price? It's amazing (I got it at Target for $2.79)! I have dry skin that's a little bit sensitive. I was worried this would dry out my skin, but it doesn't! I use it 2 or 3 times a week and moisturize right after. My skin feels so soft and smooth. It helps even my skin tone and acne too. I absolutely recommend this to anybody looking for an exfoliator to work into their routine. A+

I have used this product ever since I was 10 and have recently realized what damage it was doing to my skin. I have always had acne since I was 12 and so I know the pain of waking up to red nasty bumps. I thought that this product was helping me but after doing research I decided to stop using the product and realized that it had a huge part in my breakouts.

This product wasn't as great as I thought it would be for my skin due to the reviews by everyone.This product actually made me break out a little which is why I stopped using it.Wasn't such a great product did no good to my skin.I wouldn't buy it again I'll try some of their other products in the future.

I love this exfoliator! It leaves my skin so fresh smelling and smooth. It has gotten rid of a good amount of my acne. I used this face wash about twice a week. I’m in love with this product!

I've used this product since I was in high school, so about 8 years. You can literally feel it deep cleaning as soon as you touch the scrub to your face. My face is SOO smooth after. It washes away any impurities and helps with blemish control. My natural cheeks are so red on their own, this definitely helps keep my skin tone regulated. Five stars!

Love this product! At it's price it's a steal. It exfoliates my skin and minimizes my pores. It is a little bit harsh so don't know how well it will do with people with really sensitive skin. I just repurchased thus because I was noticing how dull my skin was looking without it. Highly recommend.

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