This is such a great product!  I've had some super high end exfoliators and honestly this has been such a good one!  I always keep this in my house as a staple product!  I bought mine at Target but I've seen this in so many other stores.

I started using this scrub in March and I’ve seen tremendous results. Even after the first use it leaves your face feeling so smooth, and it lasts a long time too. I use this every night and morning when washing my face. It’s better to apply to a damp face and use lukewarm water to remove it!

I like to use this scrub as a every other week or so exfoliator. I have combination skin and to me, it sometimes feels a little rough which is why i don't use it very often. It definitely does its job at removing the dirt, and dead skin. as far as price point you really can't beat the volume to price  ratio.

I loved this product when I wasn’t having as many problems with my skin. Once I was I was using more makeup to cover up and it wasn’t as helpful when taking makeup off and cleaning my face. Had an amazing scent and worked when I needed to. Maybe for just a morning face wash I would use again.

When I’m looking for a good exfoliating scrub this is the one I reach for. I don’t like to exfoliate daily but this is great once a week. It really removes dirt, oil and dry skin. My skin wouldn’t be able to tolerate it daily but I really like how clean and fresh my skin feels after using it.

I️ used to love using this product, always loved the smell and how it made my face feel. However one day i️ got the scrub part (ground up seed) in my eye one night and then had to go to an eye doctor to get it removed and haven’t used it since :(

I love this product. Such an improvement in my horribly acne prone skin. The scrub feels great and gets my makeup off LOVE. Can be too harsh so don’t over use it

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