When I feel like my face needs a good scrub, this product is my first pick. It is gentle enough to not harm my skin but is hard enough to really scrub off the dry skin cells.

It does it’s job but it leaves your skin superrr dry. Beware if your skin is super sentive because if you rub too hard, it will rip your skin. I purchased it in Walmart and the price isn’t bad at all, but we will definitely look for a more gentle exfoliator next time.

This product is a really great cleanser from the drug store. I have drier skin wit occasional blemishes. This product is really great about controlling my blemishes. I would recommend to others who are looking for a cheaper cleanser.

My face felt super clean after using this, but I have stopped using it because I found out it was actually tearing and damaging my skin causing extra redness and sensitivity.

The best face scrub! Helps control acne and helps get rid of dry/dead skin. Nice packaging and great price. I buy mine at target. Very effective. Met my expectations. I buy again every time I run out.

Love how this product removes all the dirt from my face. Definitely use this product when I start to feel like my other cleanser isn’t removing all the dead skin or buildup make up/dirt from my face.

I’ve been using this product for years. I always have it on hand. It exfoliates skin well and leaves me feeling fresh. I sometimes use it on my shoulders too if I’m experiencing any blackheads there.

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