Haven't tried this one yet but I've tried the green tea travel one just to try it out and this brand has blew me away. I would love to try this one out for sure!

I love using this one day of the week to exfoliate thoroughly, or at least more than my other face soaps do. Also the apricot is a great alternative to the synthetic beads that many other products incorporate.

This is the one and only face wash I use. I use it everyday and it's just amazing! I have combination skin and this is the one facial scrub that helps me balance my faces' texture.

This is a good face scrub. I like that it is affordable and uses natural exfoliants. It's pretty abrasive, so it might be too harsh for some people to use daily.

I use this daily, though it doesn't seem to fully remove blackheads as well as it advertises. Otherwise, I feel like I get a deep clean and it smells delightful.
