I have extremely oily skin, and my pores are becoming more and more visible. I love this product because I feel like it really gets in my pores and exfoliates and brings all the bacteria and dirt to the surface so I can wash it off.

I've heard so many things about this scrub, but just recently bought it for myself. I like how it's kept my skin clear, but some times it is a little too rough on my skin and really dries it out.

Well being a momma with dry skin and eczema this got the job done but my skin turned into what seemed like scales. I was using moisturizers like crazy and inevitably ended up with more black heads.

I've been using this scrub since I was an early teenager. I love how the formula has stayed true over the years. l don't find it helpful with blemishes but definitely works as an amazing exfoliator

I used to use this years ago and then i stopped to try other products, it is now one of my ski care must haves. I love it, it makes your place feel so clean and soft. Plus, it's not pricey at all.

This product is great to use month or maybe weekly. I would not recommend daily. It is too harsh for your face. I use this product once a week and a cream cleanser daily.

I have been using this face wash for 8 years and I still love it! I use it twice a day, morning and night. The blackhead scrub really does keep them away. I love all of the little exfoliating beads as well. Well worth the money!
