I used to love this, but now I'm just "meh" about it. I'm not sure if they changed something in it, or if I have just stopped liking it due to using better products.

I personally really like how clean it makes your skin feel. However the spa I get facials done said you really should not use it that it’s very damaging to your skin

People say this is one of the worst things you can put on your face. I don’t know why because I love this product. It does the job it claims to do and for a decent price.

This product is very underrated. It’s very cheap and works well on the skin. Wouldn’t recommend using often. It’ll start to dry the skin out. But still a great product

This is one of my go to's for a gentle but good scrub. I like scrubs because it takes off my makeup much better than just a gel or cream cleanser. Very inexpensive.

When I was a teenager this was my go to facial wash. It made my skin smooth and helped with acne. I had quit using it because as I got older my skin became sensitive.

Exfoliates perfect. The beads are not too rough on the face. Smells great as well and the price is cheap! I would def recommend. Doesn't leave my face oily or dry.

I love this scrub! I saw a difference in my skin after the first use! I am currently fighting breakouts in my foreheads and cheeks and this is definitely helping. And the price is 👌. Totally worth it!
