Love this product!! Fresh fruity smell!  Not too harsh for an exfoliant if used on a weekly basis.  Really keeps any blemishes under control

I've used this for a bit and my face still breaks out fairly often. It helps prevent some blemishes, but doesn't really help them go away.

I wanted to really love this product. Nice scent. Affordable price. Accessibility. But it was too rough on my skin, and left me irritated.

This has worked pretty well for me in the past. It isn't too harsh on the skin! I do wish they used a few more natural ingredients however.
