For the price range that its valued in, is it bad that I think its perfect? This product is so good on my skin, the harsh exfoliation just makes me shine! I always pick this up when I run out after a while.

Love this product! It instantly wakes up and brightens your skin! I just use my hands to scrub and massage the product on my face. It is both inexpensive and very effective! I would highly recommend this product.

My go to exfoliator for years. Does a great job at removing dead skin and impurities. Great quality for the price. I love that it has thicker exfoliating beads than most brands.

This product is a full exfoliating face cleanser
I like to wet my face with warm water then apply the cleanser and let it do its magic for a while. Then I rinse it off. This mask works great to prevent breakouts.

This is the most intense exfoliation so it's something you have to use once a week or your face will fall off. This is excellent for removing dirt and dead skin off of your face and neck and it smells good as well

I think this is a great exfoliator but this is very damaging to the skin. The micro beads literally cut through your skin so be aware of that. Solely on the harmful ingredients, I would not recommend this.

It has a really nice smell to it, and I haven't experienced any dryness after using this product. I feel my face looks more refreshed and clear. I try to use it at least once a week.

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