I have been using this product for years. Washed my face and noticed something was different. I compared the ingredients to the old formula (thank goodness I had an empty tube that I hadn't yet thrown away). The concentration of the ingredients are different from the previous formula. Also the new formula now has benzyl alcohol. This is probably why it smells so strong and is irritating to my lungs. I also experience eye pain and headache after using this new formula.

This scrub has burned and ruined my neck skin. I only used it twice in the shower on my neck as suggested by a woman on internet who had hardly any wrinkles. She's in her 70’s and said her secret to her smooth neck skin and beautiful decolletage was a daily cleans with this product. I tried it, twice. After the second use I broke out in a rash on the right side of my neck. Two days later it calmed down, but a bright red burn mark running along the whole fold line on my right side appeared. It has been almost 3 months now. It burns, itches constantly, has tiny bumps and it's deep red. I've tried everything from ice packs, cortisone cream, cucumber cooling gel, Arnica gel, mederma and actual aloe vera plant. Nothing helps. It seems to be getting bumpier, scalier and darker. I used to get compliments on my skin. I hope after Halloween my neck will start to heal, no longer thinking it's needed for some horrific costume prop.
I’ve been using this product since high school I won’t say how long I’ve been out of school! I use it 2-3x a week, gentle exfoliation and leaves my skin feeling fresh, soft and renewed. I also moisturize after using. Skin feels fantastic even in the morning.
I have very sensitive skin and this stuff not only works great for cleaning but also cleared up my skin for the first time since high-school. This has quickly become my favorite daily face & body wash. I've never felt so clean after a shower. Wish they made larger bottles with pumps.
I’ve used this product for many years. Over time, I tried comparable products from other brands, including higher end/more expensive products. This brand has absolutely the best texture/grain. There is a large concentration of grains, so you can get a great exfoliation, but the texture is fine enough that it doesn’t feel clumpy or dry. I use this for face and body. Definitely use it on wet skin only! This product does not irritate my sensitive skin.
4 bottles! Wow! This'll last me forever! Guys - if you don't do this already you should - scrub your face with this stuff before you shave. It will cut down on the razor bumps you get big time! This is a staple in my routine and it should be in yours, too! Smells amazing, way better than that cheaper version CVS or Walgreens makes. Scrubs nicer too. Smoother. I love it!
