I've been using this scrub for a long time now and it works so well on my skin. I have oily skin and some dry spots so it works well even with sensitive skin! It leaves it so smooth and really does help with acne

After every use it leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, and a little bit dry but nothing a good moisturizer can fix. Its a good price about three bucks at Walmart, but i don't really see it doing a big difference to my skin, but i still love to use it because of how clean it makes my face feel.

This product is so great! As soon as I started using this product I noticed that my acne was getting better and I couldn't believe it! I now use it once a week and it works great! I will definitely be repurchasing and it's great for people who have acne prone skin.

This was nice at first, but the more I used it it seemed to dry out my skin. I have since re-purposed this product and use it as an exfoliater before shaving my legs and underarm area. Since using it for that purpose I notice I get a closer shave that lasts longer and minimum to no razor burn.

I personally couldn't stand the smell of this. My sisters would always rave about this and so I tried it and I honestly didn't use it more than like 3 times because I thought the smell was going to make me sick.

This is the product i use every single day, it is great for blackheads and makes me feel super clean after use. My only drawback is that unless i use it in the shower I have to make sure to heavily rub my face off with a towel to dry so I don't end up walking around with beads in my ears and nose! :)

This has been a go to product for the last couple of years. Definitely exfoliate the skin leaves that feeling very soft and clean. There is a little fragrance with this product but nothing completely unbearable.

This product has been apart of my skin care regimen for years. I used it as a teen through those tumultuous years of uncontrollable acne & now it assists me as an adult in controlling my large pores. For the price, this product is amazing and definitively a go to if you have oily skin like myself.

I actually really liked this product. It worked wonders on my skin. I would use it twice or three times a week and my blackheads completely cleared away, but it was just a bit too harsh for my sensitive skin and I had to stop using it, but to each their own. This product may just be right for you!

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