I use this about once a week and I love it. It does a great job of not being too harsh on my skin and it really does get the job done.

I use this face wash in the shower and I like how it has beads in it. I bought this at Rite Aid. I would recommend and would buy again.

This is my go to product when I need to exfoliate. I love that it's natural and doesn't dry out my skin the way some exfoliants can.
