I used this scrub previously and felt it was too rough and gritty, but after receiving the scrub in an Influenster package, I gave it another go and was pleasantly surprised. It has become my nightly scrub and it does a fantastic job of removing makeup while exfoliating.

I've tried so many brands of face scrubs but this one seems to always be my go to scrub. I love how it leaves my skin and the way it smells. I also have sensitive skin and it works perfect for me.

For years, this was my go-to scrub for my acne prone skin. After turning 30, however, it's become a bit too abrasive for me. Still, it is an excellent budget cleanser that will leave your skin feeling refreshed and amazing.

No Joke, I have been using this for awhile now and I just love the smell of this. The best part is right after my facial mask I apply this and use. My face has been smoothr and tighter than ever.

I love the scent and how it exfoliates. I do think its much too harsh to use on your face too much so once a week is enough. I like to use this as a body scrub. So good for dry legs, shoulders etc.

Sometimes I buy this brand or the store brand. The real thing has better scrubber bits in it so it's worth it to spend a little more because then I use less. I like using a a day before doing my home microdermabrasion scrub and a day after to prevent peeling on my cheeks. I haven't had peeling since I started doing that.

I like it, I like the texture and how it feels. Especially how it makes my skin feel afterwards. I haven't really noticed a difference in my blackheads. Still remains the same from what I can tell.

This is my favorite face wash! I always feel like my face is clean and exfoliated with just a little scrubbing. The scent is also really great, especially when I use it in the shower when I first wake up. I'd love to try more scents also.

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