I wish I received my voxbox with this item! I received a smaller sample from another subscription and I fell in love with this! I loved the way my skin felt after using this. It does dry out your skin but there isn't nothing a little moisturizer can't do.

I have been using this product for years, I love the way it smells and I love the way my skin feels when I am done. It feels clean and I feel refreshed. I buy this at my local walgreens. Scrub never disappoints . Sometimes I feel like I need to really get the daily dirt off my face and this helps tremendously.

I used this for about 2 years, it would cleanse my skin well and leave it soft and smooth, what I noticed was every time I did use it a few days later I would get an outbreak,what I found out is this product was too harsh for my skin. It cause more acne outbreaks.
Would not recommend for oil acne skin.

I have very sensitive skin and this is one of the few face products that doesn't break me out. I use it everyday and it really helps with getting the dirt, grime, and dead skin off without being too harsh. If I forget to use it for a day, my face gets greasy so it is definitely a must have for me

I love this stuff! I was just sent it in my voxbox but I've already purchased it multiple times. It really does a nice job keeping my stress bumps down and exfoliating my face. My face feels so smooth after, and not to mention it smells pretty nice too.

I have been using this product since I was little. My grandma used to buy it for me, not so long ago I found it again at CVS and we rekindled our relationship! I love this scrub, I always have dry skin, but this doesn't hurt it, it actually helps my skin!

My experience with this product is that when I use it for a consecutive amount of days, my acne tends to flare up. I feel that the scrub is semi-harsh but was told by a dermatologist to exfoliate once a week and use a mild cleanser the rest of the time. For once a week, this stuff does the job.

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