I have used this since high school and LOVE how I feel my dead skin being scrubbed away. I have also noticed it has helped improve the appearance of acne scars and really leaves my skin feeling moisturized!

This product exfoliates the dead skin from my face very nicely! It also prevents breakouts for me. The peach scent is pleasant and feels calming on my skin. You can find this product at any local drugstore.

I love this product. It really made my skin feel refreshed, but be careful because it can be a little rough on the skin. When you use it put it on the tips of your fingers and rub it gently into your skin.
