I've been using this face wash for a couple years now, and it is absolutely amazing. It deeply exfoliates your skin and leaves it feeling smooth and soft. I love to use this product, and I definitely recommend it.

I bought this after seeking out an exfoliator for my face. My face just felt like it wasn't getting completely clean after just washing so I figured I would try a scrub. I LOVE the smell, the texture isn't too rough and it leaves skin feeling super smooth. I use once a week and love it!

I love this product, even though I don't use it as directed since I have rosacea and can't be scrubbing my face that often, but when I do use it (once a week) it leaves my skin very soft, smooth and clean. It takes all the dullness off of my skin, it smells great and works even better.

I first used this product in high school and repurchase it when I need a face scrub ASAP because of the price but it's not my favorite. The exfoliant can be a little abrasive on my skin but it smells nice and does what it needs to do. What keeps me repurchasing is definitely the price.

I love this product! It's the only thing fights my breakout/acne and controls them from reappearing. Some might think the grains in the scrub might be a bit rougher but it sloughs off serious dead skin and leaving my skin baby soft. I use it once a day and everyday for clear complexion.

I love using this product as an exfoliator. It can be a little rough if you are not used to exfoliating. Since this is a scrub it really helps to smooth your skin by removing the dead layers of skin and small bumps you get. It also helps to control blemishes and blackheads very well.

Most facial cleansers don't smell that great and thats a huge turn off for me so when I found this it was awesome. Not only does it smell great but it does an awesome job at cleaning my pores! A must try!

I love this face scrub!!! My skin is tough and likes something really gritty so this is great for me! If you have sensitive skin, you may not like this because the exfoliating particles are really large and rough. I can't believe how inexpensive it is because it works as well as my expensive exfoliators! Truly a drugstore skincare gem.

NEVER use this on your face! This scrub is much too rough for the skin on your face. I causes micro-tears in your skin which is absolutely terrible and can even lead to you getting an infection. It also has terrible affects that can show up after time. Only use this for your body. Never the face.

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