It's a great product. Smells good, lasts a long time, & is very effective. I get blackheads on my nose at times & this clears them completely. I use it with the Konjac sponge which helps even more. I joined the Julep Maven box & got this balm, a face lotion, & the sponge for $25 which is much less than buying them separate. You can skip months & if you earn enough points, you get free stuff including a free box.
