It works well for the first few weeks but then starts to loss its effectiveness. It is to rough for certain parts of the face but for the price i would buy it again.

I have tried lots of cleansers and scrubs and this particular scrub buffs away all the impurities on my face and it feels so soft and smooth. I don't have to wash it twice with this for it to feel clean. Love this product

I love this product, it works perfect for me. I could see the difference since the first time I put it on. I don't even know how this is at such an affordable price.

It really cleans your pores and has a fresh feeling after you wash it off. It is a good product for sensitive skin, it doesn't break me out ever. I always end up going back to this product
