This stuff smells so good and feels like its doing a great job with the little beads in it. It did make me break out but thats due to me having sensitive skin. Other then that it was a good product.

This product has a great smell to it with tiny little beads that help exfoliate skin. It works great at washing the face and has a soothing effect! Thanks influenster for sending me it to try out!

This makes my skin very soft. I use this when I break out really bad usually during the time I get my period. Also I use this to take my self tanner off, it's a bit harsh but works for how I use it

I use this product 2-3 times a day when I feel like my face needs some extra cleaning. The microbeads really clean my pores and doesn't dry out my already super dry skin. And it smells pretty good

This is one of the best drugstore face scrub I have tried! It's a little harsh for your skin so I recommend using it 3-5 times a week. This product is inexpensive and will make your face super soft!

This product is great! Perfect for getting smooth skin without the redness and irritation that comes from some harsher products. I've been using this for years and it helps keep my skin looking great.

My face always feels clean after using this product. Its always refreshing after using it. Guess those micro beads really do work!
sometimes I will mix it with honey or lemon juice depending in my mood, but helps the skin as well.

I like this exfoliator; however, I'm not entirely sure it's removing any blackheads on my nose. I've had this problem for awhile, but I don't see any clearing of the blackheads due to this cleanser
