It's okay. I don't particularly like the way it smells, but it cleans pretty good. I have less acne now, which is something it says on the tube so that's good.

I like the consistency of the product, for the purpose of a scrub. However this product didn't really clear my face up and was a bit harsh on my sensitive skin

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!

It works great to exfoliate the skin and cleanse it, but it's not too good with acne. It doesn't make it any worse, but it doesn't make it any better either.

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.
