It can be too harsh if you scrub it too hard, but in my opinion it's a great exfoliator.

I love it- I quit using it but always seem to come back to it and it always clears up my skin. Just don't scrub your face, be gentle and it won't irrate your skin.

Thumbs up

I love it, I highly recommend it. I am using the generic form of retin-a and the medicated scrub removes the dry skin from that nicely plus it removes the blackheads from my nose.

I used to use this all the time and it is good at sloughing off dead skin. I still broke out all the time, though, and then an esthetician told me that the sharp edges actually make tiny abrasions in your skin that let in bacteria. I use a liquid exfoliant now which doesn't give me that same fresh-scrubbed feeling, but my skin has responded really well to it. It's also great if your pores tend to get clogged with sebum (gross, I know!) A little on a cotton ball lifts it right out.
