Doesn't dry my skin out or feel heavy when I apply it. I think it does an excellent job keeping my face clean without drying it out, especially for the low price

I wouldn't use this on sensitive skin. My skin was on fire, it broke out in white heads and cysts. I won't be purchasing this again. The only good things is my skin was soft and it lightened some of my acne scarring.

I love this, it cleanse face and softens my skin. I cannot believe how many blackheads, dirt and oil it removes, not to mention that it is very reasonably priced.

I have very sensitive skin so this product didn't work for me. Also, I can't use products with a scent to them!!! I'm allergic to a lot of things, and I think this is also on the list!! I broke out in a terrible rash!

This stuff is great! They have a variety of different formulas for your skin examples are medicated or blackhead clearing. I most love the original formula. It keeps my skin soft and rejuvenated in the winter months

I enjoy exfoliation that this product gives. My skin always feels good after I use it. I've used it daily for the past month or so, but it doesn't seem to be helping to control blemishes the way I'd hoped it would.

This scrub does clean my face but only can use once in a while because it turns my face red from the pieces of almost feels like sand in it. Overall I love the way it makes my skin shine after the redness goes away.
