The sound is crisp and clear and they are really easy to pair. They have really easy to use features, too. I would highly recommend checking these out! You won't be disappointed.” —MMartin3293

The scrub is not too abrasive, but it’s also not soft or in a gel or cream base. It’s loosely packed, but a little goes a long way. It’s helped me not get as many infected hairs and helped get rid of the textured ‘chicken skin’ bumps on my upper arms.” —Tori
