I have been using this face wash for several years. It is my absolute favorite. It is perfect for exfoliating and getting a good clean, soft feel. Highly recommend.

This is a good get your makeup off wash. But it is not good for your pores. It made my pores so big and I haven't used it since then. I probably will not buy it again. I am interested in more anti aging.

I have used this product several times and it always seems to dry out my skin and actually result in more breakouts. I would not recommend this product if you already have a normal to dry skin.

I love this product great smell but if you use it every day there is more of a chance that it will irritate your skin .i would use this apricot scrub as more of an every other day deep cleaning

I find that this dries out my face, but I love using it on the rest of my body. I use it on my back to ensure no breakouts, and on the rest of my body to exfoliate and troubleshoot any cellulite!

This cleanser did a good job removing dirt and oil from my face but tended to be rough of my skin and did not remove blackheads like said on package. Good for someone who is looking to exfoliate

I've used this product for years. I even get my husband to use it on his face as well. It works great on his large pores and I love how it exfoliates my skin. Plus helps with acne as well!!

It does what it says it is supposed to do. However it is really harsh, and somewhat uncomfortable to use. But it does have a nice scent and doesn't leave my skin oily!
