I must say that I have tried a few facial scrubs before in the past. My face was left with being red and irritated. I have very dry and sensitive skin that gets irritated very easily. So I tend to be careful with the products that I use on my face! When I first used this product, I must admit that I was nervous and assumed that I would be left with red and irritated skin. I DID not, and for this it took me by surprise! Listen- I do not know what they use that is different from other scrubs that are out there, but this is worth the money!! My face was VERY VERY smooth and soft after using this scrub. It also has a great smell and can be a product for the entire family! Lastly, it does not take much as a little does go far!!
