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.

I love this product for my entire body!! Exfoliating is so great for your skin, there is no need to limit this wash to just your face!

Used for years but it never really helped with my acne. Definitely leaves your face feeling clean, though! Love the exfoliation.

Tgis face wash does infect make your face feel really smooth and clean but I don't feel as it really helps with pores or black heads.

Rough on your skin. The little beads feel good at first but after a while of use I began to notice little scrapes on my skin from them.

Definitely not my favorite product but it's okay. My father has been using it for years & absolutely loves it but it's just not for me.
