I tried this because I wanted a scrub for rough patches on my feet. and patchy areas on my face where I break out once in a while. I use it as a skin smoothener and debridant, and it makes a big difference. Effectiveness There are areas on my heels and the sides of my great toes where calluses build up, and this makes those spots feel much softer. I scrub briskly, and it doesn't hurt my skin at all, so I think it would be all right for more sensitive skin too. When I use this on my face, it leaves my skin very soft and helps me remove hard whiteheads and patchy areas. Scent This I like quite a bit. Once the tropical spices subside, I'm left with the mango scent lingering, and it's very nicely done.
