To be honest, I prefer the generic brand better. It works the same and is much cheaper. In addition, the exfoliating part seems more abrasive in this formula, while in the generic brand it's more smooth.

And I would recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive working scrub for their face!
This scrub leaves my face feeling refreshed and clean, and it's totally affordable and can be found any drug store!

This is an affordable product that will get you results. I love how my skin feels after using it but keep in mind that is not gentle and you should really only be using it a few times a week, not every day.

Doesn't exactly help with my blackheads, but does help clear out some of my other breakouts and keeps my skin very soft. Have purchased multiple times over the past three years and will continute to do so.

Great exfoliator. I have oily skin, and this gets through the grime and dead skin cells. I use this first to scrub away the dirt, and then once the pores are exposed I use my other salicylic acid face wash.

I've been using this product for years and it never disappoints! It's the best scrub and also the most economical. Don't waste money on expensive scrubs when this does just as as good of job, if not better.
