Plain and simple I love this product. Natural ingredients and the scrubs really scrub. After I use this product my face is left soft and smooth. The price is pretty average depending if you get the tube or this little container I have it'll range from 6-10 dollars.

I use this scrub every other day and find when I do use it 3/4 times a week my face feels and looks great! I love that it makes my face squeaky clean and once I'm done rinsing it feels so soft. Not harsh at all on my skin!

Very rough on the skin, causes irritation to my skin surface. Good scent, don’t recommend if you have sensitive skin and use only 1-2 a week. Doesn’t help with my acne or anything so ye

My sister was using this and recommended it to me. I wasn't too sure about it, and I have my own face cleansing routine and products, but I decided to give it a shot. I am so glad I did.

This scrub has nice large scrubbing beads in it that get all the dry skin off to give you a fresh feeling. It smells AMAZING as well. The bottle is easy to squeeze and not very slippery in my hand.

I have overly oily skin, but the cleanser takes care of all that. My face feels just as clean as it did when I washed it! I highly recommend this for teens. It isn't too expensive either.

I suffer from chronic acne and have used many different face washes. This has been one of my absolute favorites to control breakouts and scarring. It is a very affordable product that leaves skin feeling super clean and refreshed. It also has a great smell!

Only exfoliator Ive loved!Its perfect for combination skin and helps a lot to get off all the dirt from your face! Its not the best for sensitive skin since it is a very deep exfoliator. I also love the new look for them!

I like this exfoliant a lot, I like how it softens my skin, and little by little it is helping me with my acne problem, and the smell is very good.

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