Most Helpful Positive Review Hands down THE BEST scrub
I have been looking for a scrub that I could use daily in the morning which would cleanse, exfoliate, and deliver vitamin c. I found it! The package says to use 2x per week, but I use this daily, and so does my daughter. We are both using this product for very different reasons, but we are both addicted. Since we have been using this scrub daily, my skin looks brighter and her acne has definitely improved and neither of us have experienced any irritation. I have also used it on my forearms to exfoliate some of the sun damage from years of summer days spent outdoors. This proves to be a WONDERFUL body scrub as well (if not a bit expensive for use all over the body).
I am a believer. I have recently purchased a second tube for the Kidd's bathroom and my youngest daughter has also been using daily on her face. I will continue to purchase this product because of the results, and I haven't found a better quality product at this price point.

First, I find it hilarious that the view of the product itself looks like it's spread over a sheet of dried seaweed causing those larger, abrasive particles to not be seen so easily. I use a lot of skin care products that many would consider "harsh" especially when it comes to manual/physical exfoliation. This made me take a loooong pause when I first felt the texture of the scrub on the back of my hand & as I looked closer I noticed particles that were very abrasive/larger than I thought they would be. When a particle is large enough to actually see sharp edges...there's an issue. No matter how much water I added or how hard I scrubbed my hand those particles never reduced in size nor did the sharp edges ever smooth out which is going to cause inflammation for many people bc those particles are hard as a rock. If you're allergic to nuts I would advise for you not to use this...if you're not allergic to nuts, I would also advise you not to use this bc it sucks & there are much better alternatives that won't leave behind large particles in your sink, nor do they contain walnut shell powder in the top 5 ingredients.

This scrub is fine, I'm not sure it works better than other similar scrubs at the same or lower price point, but fine nonetheless. I like it less than others because it's a dark green color and has a chunky texture, and smells like pond scum. I really don't like touching it to my skin, and I won't be repurchasing.
Not for sensitive skin
Lilo25 from Portland
I didn't read the ingredients closely enough before purchasing, so I didn't realize it had walnut shell powder in it. I have mild rosacea, so I'm very cautious about things that will cause broken capillaries, and this is just too abrasive for my facial skin. However, it works great as a body exfoliant! I use it on my legs a couple times a week, and the backs of my arms as needed for those rough, bumpy patches. The smell is nice, and a little goes a long way, so it's lasted a while!
Love this product, would recommend this for sure

Love this product. It is very gentle and smells good.
Allie from CO
This is my second tube of this and I love it so much! I use it in the shower a couple times a week and my skin is so bright and blemish free after.
Tkirsh88 from Allardt, TN
Love the feeling of my skin after using this. First time I scrubbed a little too hard, but after getting the feel of it, it works in beautifully. The smell is a strange combination. The tea smell was nice but has a strange smell mixed in with it. I use this twice a week and love it!
Didn't work for me :(
Emma from Pittsburgh
I was excited to try this, as I have been looking for a good scrub lately. The shells are a little bit rough, but I normally do not have sensitive skin, so I felt that it would not be a problem for me. When I first tried it, it started out really well - it gave me super soft, smooth skin, and it seemed like it was working well with my other serums and moisturizers.
Unfortunately, after three days of use, I got the WORST breakout of my life on my cheeks and chin - both areas that have never been an issue for me. I highly suggest testing this product before buying a full tube, because you might react the way that I did.

this is like 90% granules and 10% liquid so you don't have to work very hard to exfoliate your face. the exfoliants don't feel sharp in my opinion, and they are pretty big so you are less likely to get micro abrasions on your skin.
Best face scrub I've ever used hands down.
Princess April from Georgia
I use this every other day after washing my face. Gently scrub bc you can definitely take multiple layers of skin off 😂 but seriously it's the only face scrub I've used that makes my face feel smooth and not dry.
great and effective
Laura from NC
i don't use a lot of physical exfoliants but when i do, this is the one. gently massage into your face, and when you rinse it off, your skin will feel so soft! i think some calling this harsh might be using it more aggressively? i have super sensitive, reactive, maturing skin and have never had a problem with it irritating. it does has a gritty texture, is blackish green in color - it's kind of a messy product to remove, so i prefer to use in the shower. i use it 1-2 times a week and i really like it a lot. not to mention the price is amazing and a little goes a long way.

Please be careful when first using this - The walnut in this scrub feels so harsh and more like shards, on top of which you're scrubbing in the lemon that's in the product which may not be good for sensitive skin. Like you really really have to try hard to be gentle with this one, it's the sharpest scrub I have ever used that it just made me feel uneasy to use. Just not for me.

Love this product.
ACC from Philadelphia, PA
Love this product. Very gritty and actually feels like it scrubs your face. I use it daily and have had no problem.
DO NOT BUY THIS
Glendeetz from Irvine, CA
I could not even get to midway through cleansing my face with this before I decided to gently rinse it off so I could cleanse with something else. I quickly threw this away as I wouldn't even give it to a friend or family member to use. It is so harsh and probably the most irritating cleanser I have ever tried. Walnut shells really?! Get ready for redness and micro-tears with this one.
DO A PATCH TEST IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN
Morgan from Toledo, OH
Just received this yesterday and was really excited to try it. I used it last night (felt fine, my face was definitely softer) I used my normal serum and face moisturizer and went to bed. Woke up and my face felt like it had a horrible sunburn and scrubbed raw. Dry patches everywhere, red splotches, and has been burning all day. If you have sensitive skin PLEASE do a patch test first!
My Perfect Scrub
Sarah from Frederick, MD
I have oily, acneic skin with large pores, and I absolutely love this stuff. It makes my face feel so smooth without feeling damaged, it smells and feels excellent, and the price point is terrific. I hope this never changes, it's everything my skin wants in a scrub.
Really great scrub
Sal from Atlanta, GA
I've used so many scrubs and this one is by far the best. It can be hard to find in stores sometimes.
Steph from MN
After wearing a mask at work all the day my face feels just GROSS! THIS scrub is amazing. I feel like it's just scrubbing the day off my face! LOVE!
Tropd from Round Rock, TX
I received a tube of this in one of my beauty subscription boxes and fell in love with it immediately after trying it. I love how it makes my skin feel clean and bright and so smooth. My husband loves it too and uses it to exfoliate his skin before shaving. We buy it regularly as we both can't live without it. The price is amazing too. I highly recommend.

My daughter received a sample and really liked it, so I bought a full size for her online and she loves it!!

I've used this a few times & face feels smooth afterwards.
Use with caution! Would not recommend.
Jennifer from Undisclosed
This product is overhyped. The price is great but in all honesty, it is much too harsh for the face. Thanks to this scrub, I developed broken capillaries that formed a red spot on my face-that has taken WEEKS to diminish. I used the product extremely gently and only once a week, but because it is so abrasive, it still caused actual wounds to my face and I don't even have super sensitive skin. This scrub is essentially creating tiny, microscopic lesions on your face every time you use it. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there. In the long run, this will do much more harm than good. Also, lemon peel and other types of citrus/essential oils are NOT good for the skin.
Highly recommend this product!!
Allison from New England
I came across this product on TikTok (yes, I know I'm not proud of it either) to use on your body to exfoliate prior to shaving and man did that really help!
However, this is a face wash so let me talk about that. This product is gentle enough to use on your face while feeling like its getting so much dirt out of your pores. I have sensitive skin so I usually shy away from gritty face washes but this is not a "typical" exfoliating wash. That being said I don't use this every day because that would be too much for my tender skin to handle. The color is kinda weird because of the sea kelp/ green clay but that should not deter you from buying it.
Seriously, buy this face wash, it's cheap, it works without removing 18 layers of your delicate skin, and it will last you a long time!
The only face wash I use!
Mary A. from Undisclosed
I absolutely swear by this face scrub. My skin is always just on the verge of breaking out in adult acne and this is the only face wash that keeps it from doing so. I cannot recommend it enough!
Ashley from NC
I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and I love it! It really makes your skin soft and does give it a brightness. The only negative thing I have about this product is that it's messy when coming off. At least for me. But other than that it's definitely worth the money.
Ron from Temecula
I actually really like it my face after would definitely feel much soft and clean feeling. I would definitely recommend it
Love at first scrub!
Anna Laura from Atlanta, GA
I got this as a sample with a recent skincare purchase from Ulta. I usually stay away from scrubs, but I was really impressed with this one! It left my skin feeling soft, not dry or stiff, and noticeably brighter. It is on the chunkier side and has a very light, almost earthy fragrance. I'll be purchasing once I'm done with the sample!
