Love love love. I tend to use this while showering for the best results. Has a lot of exfoliating beads or "tiny spiky balls" as I like to call it.

I love this but it can sometimes be too harsh to use in the winter time. just be mindful of how many times you use it in a week and you'll be fine

I think that it does a great job at clensing my skin. I love how smooth my skin is after I use it. It smells great and does not irritate my skin.

This is the only product that will work. It doesn't dry out my skin or leave me oily. The ONLY product that has ever been able to clear my skin.

This is a really nice exfoliant. It makes my face really smooth and soft so I only use this once a week or less, depending on how much I need it.
