My face felt soft and looked more brightened afterwards.
I've been into more chemical exfoliants, but I've used all kinds of scrubs for a long time and still do, just less frequently. There have been few scrubs where i felt like I was actually scratching my face and irritating it, but this one definitely did. I don't have particularly sensitive skin, but this was a little too harsh and i had some small breakouts the next morning. If your skin is at all sensitive I would stay faaaaaar away from this. If not, maybe give it a try, but, considering the price and for the health of your skin, there are loads of better options.
