I love this face wash! I use it every day and it works wonders. I love how the scrub isn’t smooth, because it helps to exfoliate the skin. It’s also very reasonably lriced

I have been using this scrub for years. It is hands down the best I have tried. I do not use it everyday but I do use it at least once a week. It helps my skin stay clear!

I love the smell and the smoothness of my face after using it. I use it three times a week because my face is so sensitive. But, so far no breakouts or allergic reactions.

It is so exfoliating I kinda leaves my face red after but that's probably because I'm getting in there taking the advantage of exfoliating it is also very thick and creamy

I use this in he shower and though it makes me feel cleaner I’m not sure I saw a difference in Black heads? But then again my skin isn’t very troublesome. Smells good too!

This used to be my holy grail facial scrub back home in Denmark, however I did notice that the ones sold in the US are not as effective, hence why I stopped purchasing it.

I’m only not giving this a 5 because it doesn’t give you that really clean feeling and I think it’s cuz it’s a cream. The little scrubby apricot pieces are awesome though.

This is something that I started using a while ago to clear up my skin but I also use it now on a weekly basis as a gentle exfoliater and it has worked wonders for my skin

Has the right amount of grit. Ive noticed that my skin care routine had greatly improved my skin. This has a nice scent and leaves my skin feeling exfoliated but not dry.

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