I could eat this stuff I think. Never have jus started saying. It works decent. I don't like how it leaves all the stuff in the shower afterwards.

Very gentle with no harsh chemical/medicine feeling. Helps clear existing blemishes and blackheads. Wouldn't recommend using no more than once a day.

This is a very affordable face scrub. It has a gritty texture so you can feel that it exfoliates without being too harsh. The smell is pleasant.
