I love this. It really cleans out your pores. It can be harsh on your skin if you over use it but I do believe they ahve one for sensitive skin also. This really cleans out the blackheads though and you can feel the gritness of it :)

I'm in love with this product. I have a condition where I was born with a missing enzyme in my skin so I produce a lot of oil and my skin has a tough time removing the dead skin causing......acne:( but since using this my skin has gotten so much better and when my skin feels just eh I use this and it freshens it up again:)

I've used this scrub for years and still love it. My husband confessed to using it one day in the shower, and now he won't stop using it! We both love the smell and how soft our faces feel afterwards.

I love this scrub! I have sensitive skin that tends to dry out very easily. I typically use the sensitive version of this scrub but even the regular one works great and doesn't make my skin too dry.

I used this for a while when i was younger but I had to use it 2 times a week. I found that if I use it too often it made my skin mad. Smells lovely! Feels gritty on the skin, remember you don't have to scrub very hard with this one.

This product is the only thing standing in the way of my face being covered in acne!! I feel so fresh and so clean after scrubbing off a days worth of make up, dirt, and oil. There really is no product that compares.

I don't use this on my whole face mainly bc it is tough on the skin. I use it every now and then on my nose to get rid of my blackheads and though they aren't completely gone there is a big difference

This facial cleanser exfoliates my skin very well. I use it every night, along with my Clarasonic and it has really minimized my pores. It has left my skin feeling refreshed, clean, and not too oily or dry. I absolutely LOVE this product, and will continue to repurchase it.

I have tested a few different scrubs, and this is my most favorite. It leaves my face clean, soft and bright. Other scrubs would irritate my skin and made my face red, but this leaves a great finish

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