My favorite scrub! It has a decent scent. It also gets your skin really clean. It makes your face super soft after washing it. The results from this product you can see almost immediately. I usually get it from Walmart, Ulta or Sams club. The product is good the way it Is I wouldn't change it

This is my go to exfoliator. I absolutely love this product. It doesn't tear up your skin if you use it daily which I love. It takes off leftover makeup seamlessly. Also since I added it to my shower routine my acne spots have dramatically decreased

I like the smell of this cleanser and i love how my face feels after i use it but sometime it makes me wonder it its getting all the oil inside of my pores rather than just the surface so thats why i gave it a four

The smell is amazing, and I love the way it cleans my skin. My only issue is that it is REALLY scrubby. The beads can be kind of rough on my face so I can't use this every day, but it's great for 2-3 times a week.

It's not very often that I use these scrubs for my face, I'm really lucky for very few blemishes, but if I do breakout, I tend to turn to this. It keeps them under control (just like the name!) and makes my face smell pretty damn delightful. I've been using this product for quite sometime as well.

This product did work for my skin when I first used it to try and fade my dark areas, as I continued to use it my skin started to dry out when using this product even with using a moisturizer to follow after use.

This stuff is my holy grail. I stumbled across it a couple of years ago and honestly haven't looked back since. The scrub is moderate - not too gentle but rough enough to get into the pores. I purchase mine from Walmart or family dollar all the time.

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