If my skin needs a pick me up for some brightening with minor exfoliating properties. I use this and I love it. It doesn’t overly dry out my skin and no reactions unlike other products with glycolic acid.

Works well for those with oily skin. I use after I have removed my makeup. I purchased this from Ulta. I would recommend this to other people. The packaging is sleek and easy to use. Enjoy this product.

OBSESSED with this cleanser!! My skin hasn't been this clear in a long time!! The scaring on my cheeks have lightened up as well since I started using this product 3 weeks ago, along with their pink clay spotting treatment! HIGHLY recommend for troubled skin!!

My skin has never been as clear since using this! Only thing is you must use it in moderation. My skin gets very dry after use so apply a skin serum to keep your skin moisturized! But if you use it twice a week! Then it's perfect!

Gets the job done and I feel like it’s really gentle on my skin. I actually have used this on my feet in the shower when I’m getting the dead skin off and it works pretty good when paired with a rough scrubby!

This is my new go to. I'm bad at exfoliating and this really makes it easy for me. I use it about once a week. Got a travel size at ulta!!! I think it's great for the price especially since you only use it once or twice a week.

For those that use you use it everyday? I currently have the aloe Vera cleanser and wasn't sure if I should use it in place or use both

I'm curious to try this product, I do have very sensitive skin so i'm debating it. Does this product work well on it's own or would I have to use a loofah or other exfoliator?
