I use to use this face wash multiple times a week. My skin changed and became more sensitive and it was too harsh on my skin. I loved it while I used it, but I just can't anymore.

I’ve used this product a few times . It usually has my skin feeling soft but it doesn’t really work , as far as getting rid of blemishes . It wasn’t really what I expected .

I love this scrub! I use it biweekly to exfoliate my face really well. When you first start using the product, you will break out a bit but it goes away after a couple uses.

Love this scrub! Has a gritty texture that exfoliates your face/ skin while the rest of the formula is creamy and soothing. Great smell as well and leaves my skin bright and soft

I love the feeling of this scrub. A little goes a long way and I love that it can be used as an everyday exfoliant. Don’t use this if you’re wanting a deep exfoliating experience

I look forward to using this product! I love it so much! It is so refreshing and makes my skin feel soft and clean. I love the exfoliating factor. It also helps my skin stay clear! Must have

I’ve used this for about 5 years & it has always worked just fine. It’s a good scrub to use about twice a week as it is very exfoliating & not the best for everyday use. Keeps acne at bay while scrubbing away dead skin cells.

I use this scrub every morning and night and it has made such progress on my acne prone skin. If you use this product on a daily basis, you WILL* see results. Highly recommend!

This moisturizer is amazing! I use this after I shower and before I put on makeup. I have a problem with dry skin around my nose and mouth, and all the moisturizers and lotions I'd tried prior to using this didn't really help. This, however, has made my dry skin go away completely. Plus, you don't have to use very much of the product to get results. It'll probably last me quite a while! The only negative I could point out is that it does smell a little weird, but that's a very minor issue. I'd definitely recommend trying this out.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
