I purchased this about 3 months ago or so. I am just now starting to run out, so it lasts a decently long time. First off, the product had tiny beads that do their job. It definitely exfoliates. The smell is nothing to complain about or compliment.All in all, it does exactly what it is supposed to do. Simple but good

I love this, my sister recommended it to me. It feels like its really cleaning, i like that you use it every other day or two because if i forget to use it its not a big deal. always use a non oily lotion after because it might dry out your face. But besides that i love it

I use this product 2x a week. Any more than that it dries my face out. Is a very good cleanser/exfoliater. I worry a bit about what the silica beads that are washing down the drain are doing to the environment and our drinking water as I have recently read. Jury is still out on this product pending further investigation

I'm currently using this product now and I really like it. It's perfect for exfoliating the face and it leaves it feeling so smooth. It doesn't dry my skin out and it keeps my face from getting too oily. I'm too crazy about the smell of it but overall it's a good product

This scrub isn't too harsh on my sensitive skin. After a couple of uses you will notice blemishes and spots clearing up. I love that the exfoliants are all natural, and in various sizes. Your face will feel refreshed after using this scrub. Gentle enough to use every day.

I use to be a big big fan of their facial scrub! Awhile ago they changed the scent. Yeah a really long time ago! But after that I didn't really like it because of the smell. It still did everything it was suppose to but I just can't stand the fragrance & now I buy the store brand instead! Sorry!
I wish they would start marketing their shampoo/ conditioner combo pkgs again!

I've always loved this cleanser, but it doesn't really help with my breakouts. Still a favorite for the occasional exfoliation, just not reliable for controlling oil/breakouts. I would buy it if I didn't need something a little more advanced to treat my hormonal acne.

I love this product. I use every other morning on my face and 2-3 times a week on my whole body. Nothing makes my skin look and feel smoothr. Sometimes I get the big tub if the store I'm at has it, though I'm not sure if its exactly the same thing, same brand of course.

I've been using this product for years and am pretty happy with it. I prefer using something a little more gentle than this. I find my skinny dries out or gets irritated if I use it too much. I have recently switched to a new product that I only have to use once a week.

It works as a cleanser but for me it kinda just irritated my skin and made me break out more. I already had dry skin, but maybe using a good moisturizer should help from the irritation. c: hope this helps! <3

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