I have sensitive skin, but needed a scrub for ,y blackheads and oily skin. This is maybe one of the best scrubs I've used. I am a big fan of the brand.

Love this product! I use it by itself and it does the trick perfectly! I didn't have any problem with it drying up my skin or anything! It was awesome!

The exfoliation beads are rather large and do not get the job done as well as some other face washes I have used. Also, after use my skin feels oily.

This unfortunately was another product that didn't work well for me. I loved the little beads in the face wash that dissolved but it did little for me.

I love this product. I've used it all over my body. The fragrance is nice and light as well. Comes in a nice container, with an easy to screw on lid.
