This is one of my favorite face products! Anytime my face feels "dirty" or I have a new breakout, I wash my face with this and it helps my skin feel refreshed.

I go back and forth with this one. Random buy every once in a while. It is reliable to bring the skin softer and get rid of the dryness in my honest oppinion.

Supposedly this wash isn't good for your skin because the texted may scratch the skin but this is one of my go tos and I've never had any negative experiences.

I liked this product. The only downside is I felt like the scrub was just a tad too harsh on my skin. But it did it's job and my skin looked good the next day!

Was told by a doctor that this is why I have bumps and severly dry skin! This is not something you should use even every other day, its too ruff for skin!
