  • "I really enjoy using this face wash! It makes my skin feel very clean and it does help exfoliate a little. It also removes oil very well. I would most definitely recommend this for someone with more sensitive combination skin because It doesn't have any really harsh exfoliating beads in it. Even though it does say that it helps exfoliate, its gentle enough to be able to use every day as your regular face wash. " in 29 reviews

Garnier products are fantastic for my skin! My face looks bright and feels clean and refreshed after using this face wash. This product never leaves any gross residue on my skin, and it smells fantastic. My T-zone is oily and the rest of my face is very dry; Garnier face wash does as excellent job balancing my skin. Highly recommend.

This is the absolute best cleanser for combination skin. It doesn’t dry out my cheeks at all, which usually stay dryer. It takes the oil out of my t zone and it has a very refreshing scent to boost. I would never use another cleanser honestly.

I'm a skincare fiend. This is a mild non-drying exfoliator that gives my skin a refreshing feel. I always recommend something with grapefruit to wake up to, I actually feel like it gives you a boost. The beads are soft and squishy so its not too intense on dead skin, but its a great deal for removing makeup and cleansing

Loving this so far!  It hasn't broken me out which is a plus in my book and my skin feels clean and fresh afterwards.  I think the price go's along with the quality of this product.  If you have sensitive skin you might want to try a sample size before buying just to see if your skin agrees with it.

I love this exfoliator. It smooths away any dull or dry skin. But it is also still gentle. I love the scent too. My only complaint is that it has been hard for me to find in stores lately!!!

THIS PRODUCT BRO JUST WOW! I never exfoliated before this product and when I finally did my skin had cleared up completely! I used to get acne on my forehead all the time whether it was a big pimple or a little white head, there was always something 🙄 this got rid of it for me tho and now I look great

I use this product when I’m running low on my mud mask or I don’t have time to do my mask treatments. I simply apply nickel size drops on my face and gently spread it all over then with my scrubber I massage it with warm water and pat dry afterwards.
