This is my favorite product for exfoliating. It is pretty rough so I only use it about 3-4 times a week. It makes my skin feel fresh and smooth.

Cleans very well. Good idea if you need an exfoliate. Doesn't prevent acne but has helped improve my skin by removing blackheads and dry skin.

It does get the job done. You can feel the crystals exfoliating your skin. Easy to use packaging. Interesting smell. Met my expectations.

This was the first defoliator I ever bought/used. It's a classic. It's great for black heads and isn't drying at all. I used it every 2-3 days!

This is easily one of the best exfoliates out there. Just make sure not to use it everyday, because it could damage your skin and dry it out.:)
