This is my go-to face cleanser and exfoliator. It exfokiates gently without making my fave red afterwards and keeps my skin pimple and blemish free.

My all time favorite facial cleanser. Leaves my face feeling extra clean but not too dry. Love that it really scrubs it well without being too rough.

It exfoliates my skin so well and makes my face so smooth. The only downside it will often make my skin dry but that is no problem that i can't fix.

This is a very harsh scrub for the delicate facial skin. It's almost too textured to even use it for the body. I'd recommend using it very sparingly.
