Very nice!

I really liked this scrub. It left my fave feeling fresh and clean. I liked the texture it was grittier than a lot of the other scrubs I've tried.

Great!

This is one of the best things I've received in a Birchbox. I had never cleansed my face like this before I received the product. Now, I make sure it's in my weekly routine. This is the smoothest my face has been since reaching adulthood.

Perfect Scrub

I really enjoyed trying this product out and it is now on my to buy list. The scrub didn't leave my face red and left it feeling clean and clear. I would definitely recommend someone check this product out! It also made it easier for my moisturizer to soak in and really do what it is supposed to do.

Worthy scrub

I use many mens products that already have a smell to them so the last thing I need is a face scrub mixing in with my odors. First the scrub works well. Secondly it rinses nicely. I also enjoy the packaging. I may purchase this product when my sample runs out.

Really grainy

Maybe it's just me. I don't use a face scrub at all, but I tried this one. I have a full beard, so when I used it, it got all in my beard and was hard to get out. The only time I will use this again is right before I take a shower. That way I will be easily able to wash it all out of my beard.

Nice product

I used this right after shaving and it seems to do a good job exfoliating. My only complaint is how tiny the sample size is. I can probably only get another use out of the bottle.

I like it

The first thing that comes to mind when using the Facial Scrub is "sharp clay". I can feel the dermabrasion in the scrub. The product itself feels like it does a good job on absorbing the oils from my face. I'll definitely be buying some of this.
