I was disappointed in this face wash. While it did help clear up some acne, it left my face very oily. I would not recommend this to anyone with oily skin!

I love using this a few times a week when my skin is feeling sort of under the weather. I wouldn't use this daily, but whenever I need to it does the job!

I wasn't really impressed with this facial cleanser. It smells great but it didn't help prevent my breakouts and the "beads" were a little rough on my skin.

I have really sensitive skin and this product made my face red and caused me to break out badly. I don't recommend this product if you have sensitive skin.

This doubles as an amazing foot and hand scrub if you decide to have a night of self-pampering! Definitely something on my shopping list every few months.

As a student studying esthetics, this is very bad for the skin and is very common in use among my clients. it is very harsh on the skin and may leave tears

I bought this product a year ago and I fell in love with it. I use it everyday when I shower. On my face and back. My skin feels soft after I wash it off.

This is an effective and gentle way to cleanse the skin. It exfoliates and cleans deep into the pores and feels great on the skin. Doesn't dry my skin out.

I received a sample of this in my Campus VoxBox. I love the scent and the way my skin feels afterwards. It does not leave me dry, which normally scrubs do.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
