I used to love this stuff. It exfoliates very well but it leaves behind the residue. It stopped working for me because I think my skin has gotten used to it.

I have used this for years and it has always done its job. I have heard this cuts your face and will lead to wrinkles potentially but it keeps my s,in clear!

This product works well for removing and preventing blackheads. It doesn't dry out my face, and is gentle enough to use with other acne preventing products.
