This is a tried and true classic. I love the scrub aspect and how soft it makes my skin feel afterwards. It does a great job and is my go to when not trying out other brands. Highly recommend for my oily, blemish prone skin.

Is a good product but not a excellent product, you could find a better exfoliator for the same price. The good things are Paraben-free formula and Sulfate-free formula

This stuff is great. I have oily acne prone skin and use this stuff once a week. I do tend to break out a lot so my skin gets sensitive so I recommend once a week use.

It does really well controlling my acne and my skin was definitely a lot softer. However this is a really intense scrub, the entire consistency of the scrub is all exfoliating beads so it is a little more on the rough side.

My face feels like a baby's bum after I wash it with this scrub. I like the scent and the micro beads! I have been using this product when I first had my teen breakout.

I've used this product for a very long time and still enjoy it! I try to use it twice a week to slough off dry skin. Many brands offer a generic version of this but I really feel it's worth buying the real thing in this case.

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