This brand of face scrub is the most effective! It exfoliates great I love how effective it is but yet still gentle enough for any face type.

Great for all over body use. Clears up my skin very fast. I don't particularly like non-organic washes but this is definitely an exception.

Feels great on skin. Makes skin smooth and cleans very well. careful not to scrub too hard as it can rough up your skin. But great product.
