I use the product everyday. It doesn't over dry and irritate my skin like other cleansers. I use warm water to prepare my face for cleanser then i lightly scrub. I then us cool water to rinse. Leaves a more fresh feeling.

I love this stuff. I thought it would be too rough on my sensitive skin, but it's not! It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and healthy looking. It also smells nice and helps with spots!

I bought this just to see if this would make me more awake in the mornings, and it did! I love the way it refreshes your face and makes you feel rejuvenated and more awake. It smells great

If you want something that will make your face feel the most refreshed after you wash it then you need to be using this stuff. The beads they add to exfoliate are just the right texture to actually exfoliate without hurting or damaging the skin. great product.

This scrub lives up to it's name and provides a consistent base to clean pores. I am impressed with the consistency of the product. My face always feels cleaner and noticeably more radiant. This is a staple in my house.

I used this for years, thinking it did something. I quit using it and my face was smooth as a baby's butt. I haven't used it for over a year I still get some blemishes but not like before.

I've literally been using this since I was a preteen- I love it and wouldn't change a thing. I hope they never change the formula- it smells good and exfoliates amazingly! Forever Customer.

I use this scrub about once a week and it totally helps clear up my skin! It is a little rough but it's worth it. I would not recommend using this daily because it will dry your skin out but it is totally worth buying!
