It smells great! It’s a very good exfoliator and it takes away all the dead skin and cleans your pores. It smells so good I have to stop myself from taking a taste haha. I highly recommend that you should go and buy this product!

i use to love using this it is so inexpensive  and you can find it at most drugstores, you get a huge bottle, the only reason i stopped using it was because it started to make me breakout, i like to use a more fine sand type of exfoliator on my face now but this is still great for the body.

Due to having really sensitive skin, Its hard for me to find a facewash that doesnt cause breakouts.
This is one that I can use with no problems. It does its job and my skin feels great afterwards

This has always been a favorite for me. The exfoliating scrub in this works wonders, leaving my face and arms feeling smoothe and rejuvenated. It was a great value, I wouldn’t change a thing about it and will continue this product.

I️ read really good reviews on this so gave it a try. Got to say didn’t work for me. It was too rough on my skin & didn’t help my breakouts. I️ have sensitive skin & persistent acne but would recommend for someone with light acne

I really like this facial scrub. It exfoliates my skin very well and doesn’t leave it feeling too dry. It is a bit tough though so I don’t recommend it if you have sensitive skin and for people with non sensitive skin I recommend using max one a week.

Amazing face wash !! Has beads that exfoliates the skin and leaves the face feeling soft and brand new . I have oily skin and this face wash did wonders to help control the oils. Really great if you gave acne prone skin as well !

I’ve been using this product since middle school and I really do love it. It’s a great exfoliant at a good price, and it smells good too. It can be a little abrasive though, so I only use it when my skin really needs exfoliation.

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