I give this product 3/5 because it does exfoliate well, but it's also super drying. The beads are on the larger side, which isn't good for your skin at all.

This product is amazing! A little size about the finger tip is good enough, long lasting, helps get rid of your pimple/acne. It helps smooth out my face too.

I use this when I feel as though my skin is very dirty and dry- it is a very harsh exfoliant so I wouldn’t use it all of the time but it definitely is great.

I have some mild cystic acne along my jaw line and this is the only this that seems to knock it right out. I love how soft and even it leaves my skin after.
