After researching a suitable cruelty-free replacement for Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub, I purchased this with high hopes. The Salicylic Acid, exfoliating beads, and the fact that it is natural (Petroleum, SLS & Paraben Free) and cruelty-free were the main selling points for me. The very reasonable price (less than $10) didn't hurt either. I've been using it for about 3 weeks and am very happy with this scrub. I use it every morning. I'm using Retin-A and this scrub is gentle enough to cause no irritation, yet tough enough to help slough off flakey dry skin. I also like that the ginger root and tomatoes unclogs pores and helps reduce redness. I really do glow after using this and my face feels very clean. I think it has a pleasant smell, but it isn't a strong fragrance or one that lingers for very long. The packaging is good -- it doesn't leak and is easy to dispense. The only problem is that I find it's easy to end up with too much product if you don't squeeze the bottle very gently. I will definitely buy this again -- this product definitely lived up to my expectations.
