Scrub a dub

This was a typical face wash… It did the job, but it wasn't anything special.

great pre-shave

Can't complain. Exfoliates your skin well. Great as a pre-shave wash!

There are better facial scrubs out there
Sampled

This product is OK and it does what it says, but here is what I DON'T like about it. The gritty bits used for exfoliation don't dissolve. No matter how much I rinse, I always wind up with a little bit of grit caught along my hair line. The fragrance was also too fake fruity (read: cough syrup) for me. For the same task, I would recommend a sugar-based exfoliating cleanser instead. I found one through Birchbox that I like very much. It trumps this product, in my opinion.

Great wash

I had already tried this before receiving a sample and it's a good wash. It's just "gritty" enough. Leaves skin feeling smooth and clean.

Baxter makes great products and this product is no different. This scrub leaves your face feeling clean and brand new and it also has a refreshing scent that gets your day started.

Best face scrub out there
Sampled

I haven't been the guy who likes to use all these "fancy" skin care products before, but after trying this Baxter of California product I think that will change. From the moment I opened the bottle I knew it was good. The smell is fantastic, the quality of the job it does is even more awesome. I would recommend this to anyone.

It does as it says, a good face scrub. Not too gritty and not a bad scent to it.
