I use this scrub every other day. I have bad Excema, but this scrub keeps it under control and keeps my face glowing and eliminates dirt and black heads.

I would not call this cleanser a cleanser. All it does it rub every last skin cell off of your face. It is the harshest thing I’ve ever used on my face.

This wash really did help keep my face clear. The smell was also much better than most acne face washes. It also helped stop my skin from being as oily.

This apricot scrub is something I come back to year after year. It’s super affordable, does a great job at exfoliating, and has a bit of salicylic acid.

Smells has little beads but not the weird beads in like the clean and clear ones...and I think it probably depends on your skin type
