I use this product every day and have been for a couple of years. It really takes off the gross skin and leaves your face feeling wonderful. It really helps with the blackheads. I also use it on my back to prevent acne there.

I've been using this for a very long time now and it has never failed me. I love the smell and it's a great exfoliant. My skin was a little sensitive to it at first but it isn't anymore. It's affordable and I would recommend it.

I've been using this for probably 7 years and have no intentions of stopping. In high school I have oily, acne prone skin and this along with other things helped keep my ace clear. Now I only have to use this to keep it clear.

I love this stuff!!!! I makes my skin so clean and refreshed. It really works in detoxing your skin and scrubbing away the grim and black heads. Plus I love that its good ingredients for you. I would definitely recommend this product. For sensitive skin though, don't use everyday, it might be a little too harsh.

The packaging is so cute and the smell of this is even better. This was my first time trying this product and I am very impressed with it. I bought mine off of Amazon and it was around 4 dollars. Very inexpensive and very worth the purchase. Beware of the beads as they can get into your eye and sting a bit, so I just take the mask off in the shower. Overall, I LOVE THIS!!

I really did like this product until I found out its not good for your skin at all! I never saw much of an improvement using it, they say that it's just like rubbing pieces of glass into your pores-OUCH! Such a disappointment.

I love this product I use it every night in the shower and in the morning before work , it really minimizes your pores and gets rid of your black heads as well. I love the tingling feeling it gives you once you rinse it off :)

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