Always leaves my face feeling fresh and smooth! It has a light smell of apricot and you can really feel the difference after you dry off compared to just a standard cream or gel cleanser.

Great for combination skin. Leaves my skin feeling nice and smooth. Keeps the dead skin off of my face without over doing it. I would recommend this to literally anyone. Even someone who may not have any acne concerns. It's just that's great!

I used this product around a few months ago. I have very little acne so this did the job. I'm not sure if it will work with people that have more acne though. it smells very good

Somewhat obsessed with this product! I love the way it smells and the way it exfoliates my skin without completely drying it out as a lot of the clean and clear products do to me.

The only facial cleanser that I'll use. Everything else breaks me out and although I was hesitant about using this one because it seemed really cheap compared to others it's been the best one for my skin

This is my HOLY GRAIL scrub! I will always use it. It feels gentle when you are washing your face, but it really makes a difference with clearing my acne and evening my skin tone.

I have had a very frustrating issue with blackheads and this seems to be the only face wash that helps to eliminate the problem without causing dryness! And the smell is amazing!

This works so well with any pimples you already have and to block future pimples/blemishes. It has exfoliants in it so it gets rid of dead skin and makes your face extremely soft.
