Works great, haven't had a problem with acne at all since I've started using this product. Also helps with my blackheads and makeup removal.

All of us love this scrub which leaves your skin feeling clean and soft. I have tried the comparable generic and found it not to be as good.

This is a mask in my weekly rotation. The scrub gives me that deep clean feeling for a small price. So its definitely worth it for the price

This face wash is ok. Never really noticed any difference in my face. The smell is strange and its too rough for my skin. I've used better.

I love the fresh scent. As long as you don't overdo it, it's great exfoliating about once a week. Especially when the winter dries your skin.

Very harsh exfoliant. Very drying. Irritated my skin. I love the smell & the price, but just isn’t the best choice for exfoliating with acne.
