Everyone in my house uses this.

The little gritty sandy pieces that are in here make you feel like the product is getting deep in the pores. I have been using this on and off for the last five years!

I’ve been using this product for at least 15 years. The exfoliant is very gritty, which i like, to remove dead skin, makeup, and the grime of the day. It’s smells pretty fresh and is very affordable.

I bought this from my local Target. I like how this is a basic physical exfoliating scrub. It gets the job done and smells nice too. Its really affordable. I cant use it on my skin everyday because it will dry out my skin. However, I buy this again and again.

Use it twice daily, once in the morning to get rid of all the oils that built up through the night and once at night to help remove any oils that may have built up throughout the day. I recommend it.

This produce was amazing. It gave me a gentel scrub that exfoliated my skin without being too harsh. It also did not strip my skin of its natural oils. You can get this product at most drugstores or pharmacy markets. I would buy this again once I am done with this bottle.

Love the beads that scrub my skin clean and gets into my pores. The smell is actually pleasant compared to other products I've used. It leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. It also does seem to keep my acne away. My face doesn't get as many break outs since using this.
