This works wonders. I've used this many years because of bumpy skin from playing softball. The sweat and dirt would make me break out and I used it on body. Love love love this product.

This product is not my favorite BUT it does clean the face perfectly! I enjoy using this face scrub whenever I had a huge workout ( to get rid of the oils & sweat) that day. Best product.

I only ever buy this is the travel size. Its a little too rough and exfoliating on my skin to use on a regular basis but it good for when my skin is feeling dry.

I love this scrub. Although I have not seen a difference in my blemishes. I love that the scrub is a bit more aggressive than others in a good way. Leaving your skin very clean and soft.

This is my go-to face wash. I have extremely oily skin, and this product helps reduce the level of oils without completely drying out my face. I also can see a sign of reduced blackheads.
