I've been using this product for many years. It's a gentle scrub that cleans your skin and pores. Leaves skin looking fresh and feeling smooth.

This scrub is horrible for your face 😩 My sister is an esthetician and said the beads are crushed up walnuts and make micro tears in your face.

One of my favorite facial washes! Smells great! Also leaves your skin feeling so clean, and fresh! One of the best uses for my acne prone skin!

Super great product. My skin feels so so soft after using it. I don't think it would be good for sensitive skin because it is pretty abrasive.

This product is just okay for me. It leaves my face feeling like there's a film on it, and I found that it really didn't help with blackheads.
