Although I find this to be too abrasive for my face, I LOVE to use it in the sunless tanning routine. It does a great job getting the dead skin cells and preparing my skin for the self tanner. This vital step really helps extend the length of my tan.

I got this because I've heard great things about it. It's suppose to help with blemishes and black heads. I used as directed and I didn't see any difference. The most it did was make my skin a little soft, but it did dry it out. Maybe it was just my skin.

I used this product for a very long time and I don't really remember why I stopped! It was a great product and helped clear up my skin a little. I may have to head to the store and repurchase that product and see if it is still as great as I remember!

I loved the scent but it broke my out swelled both my eyes up. I was so sad because it said for sensitive skin but it wasnt. For all of those who can use this good. I really loved how it felt until it broke me out.

This scrub is nice because it makes my face feel very smooth without being too rough on my sensitive skin. It can be a little drying so I usually throw on a light moisturizer after. It's great for preventing acne breakouts

I just bought a few more of these last week since I was running low. I probably use this scrub 2-3 times a week. I have very dry skin, and this scrub washes away the dead skin on my face and leaves it feeling fresh :)

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