It's a little bit too scratchy on my skin. I'd say it's probably better for body than skin, as your skin is more sensitive and may get irritated from it. Works great for body though! Just don't scrub too hard.

I tried this product last month, and its not all that great. Its very gritty texture, does leave the skin feeling refreshed, I admit that. But, it doesn't clear up any blemishes or black heads at all. I rate it a c, just for the refreshing feeling.

Love this brand & all the products!! Great quality items! Fresh, clean, & easy to use. Highly recommend!! The scrub is gentle, but exfoliates. Leaves my skin feeling soft & clean! The exfoliant isn't too abrasive & is a fine texture, not too big.

I like how this scrub makes my face and pores feel very clean. It smells good and you can usually find a small container of it in the travel section of mst stores. This is great if you just want to test it out!

I LOVE this scrub! I keep it in my shower for when I need a deeper clean after a workout. With skin as sensitive as mine, it's hard to find a scrub that won't over dry or encourage breakouts, this one is great!

I use this scrub a few days a week. Every couple of days I will use it just to clear my face. I can really tell a difference in the softness of my skin when I use it. However I do not use it everyday because it tends to irritate the skin if used on a daily basis.

If you have really sensitive skin I don't recommend this product. It can be a little rough on the skin and cause dryness and redness. It's nice to use maybe once a week, but I think there is better out there.

I've been using this product for about 3 months now, and it's pretty awesome. I've noticed that when I stop using it (rather, I neglect to use it), my face starts to break out a little. Not too bad, because I generally don't break out that much, but this scrub noticeably reduces blemishes. And after using it, my face feels so soft and clean!

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