I use this once a week (I hear is bad to use everyday and I was using it everyday). It makes your face feel so smooth and soft but does leave it red.

This product makes my skin feel smooth after using. But my only complaint is that it is a little too rough on my skin. But it definitely does the job.

This is the only face wash I use! I love that it helps control my blackheads, and helps gets rid of dead skin. I love how my skin feels after I use it.

I love the smell and it makes my skin feel young and fresh. It can a bit harsh to use daily on your face, so I can only use it a few times per week.

These scrubs are ok. They exfoliate really well but the beads are too big for me, they hurt my face. I use this scrub to exfoliate my feet and elbows.

My mom has this and she truly loves it. It exfoliates perfectly and leaves the skin truly soft. Just don't scrub too hard, you might damage your skin.
Using this scrub reduces the shine of my face due to oil, leaves me feeling rejuvenated. I wish it lathered a little better to be more cost effective.
