I love this facial scrub. It’s amazing. I’ve been using it for many years and it never disappoints. The exfoliating beads inside really gets all the dirt out and leaves the skin feeling bright and refreshed.

Honestly one of the best acne cleaners for my skin. I bribe out with Rodan and fields and this cleared my skin right up. Leaves my skin feeling so smooth and of course it’s a great value for the low price.

This product is great with exfoliation! Scrub is pretty rough, so rub gently. I usually buy from Walgreens or Target and use it about 3-4 times a week. A little goes a long way!

my daily scrub after cleansing! I don’t know what to really but the fact that it doesn’t make my acne prone skin breakout but at the same time I don’t think it fights my clogged pores but it does help my breakouts!

When I first started falling into the skin care fad, I used this. I fell in love immediately and no matter what I buy, I’ll still always come back to this for a bit. The smell, packaging and scrub is 10/10

I loved this product for a while. Love the scrub feeling. It does exactly what it says while making you feel clean and it doesn’t have a gross smell. I always get it at the local drug store or at Walmart.

Good product, I personally use it 2 times a week, but I don’t see any improvement in my acne. I have been using for a long time, too. It smells great but I wish it was smaller grained.

I am obsessed with this scrub! Use it as an exfoliator all the time, like once a day or once every other and I love it! It’s a little harsher because it exfoliates but soooo worth it and low price point!

Lots of my friends swear their life on this scrub so I thought I would try it out. It is very harsh on skin but I did see little impact, but not enough that I would purchase again. It was very cheap too

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