The only face wash I use! I’ve used this face wash for about 9 years and will never buy another. I just use it at the end of my shower and get out feeling great. I recommend this face wash to EVERYONE I know because I truly believe this is the secret to flawless skin. I haven’t had more than a mere pimple since I’ve started using it.

Love using this! I use this before my Neutrogena® Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser to get all the dead skin off and it does a good job! It smells good and it very affordable! If you have sensitive skin, i would avoid this, but if you have normal skin, you will love this!!

This is my go to heavy duty scrub. I can’t use this every day because it would cause significant irritation but once a month or so I use this apricot scrub and it does a great job of removing sebum and products that have slowly accumulated over time. I need to follow it with a good amount of sweet almond oil or Argan oil to give my skin back some of its moisture but I don’t have issues with irritation or damaged skin afterwards. Great product

Yes, Yes, Yes and more yes. I have never had acne before in life. Sure he occasional pimple here and there, but nothing major. Once  I turned 28, my chin went crazy with breakouts. I tried so many products and spent so much money trying to clear up my skin. The n a whim, i picked this up and after a week was hooked. I have always been nervous to exfoliate since i have very dry skin, but this scrub is amazing. It actually helps hydrate my skin while exfoliating and clearing acne, need i say no more :)

I hardly use any skin products, but this is my go to. It keeps my skin fresh feeling and healthy looking, and is easy to apply in the shower and use efficiently. I like the natural feel and smell— nothing too over the top.

I have combination skin, and when I tried this I was very nervous. It moisturized in the right places and took of my dead skin too. I always use cream afterwards, and it works beautifully. It is really cheap and a little goes a long way. Definitely a good buy.

This product feels like it’s working while you use it, but in the end it exfoliates too much. It’s too harsh for my skin. I purchased at target and it is affordable. I do not recommend this to people with sensitive skin.

Great product. I was actually referred by a friend. It smells sooo good but it us not harsh on the face. Gives you this wonderful smooth clean feeling. While helping to get rid of redness and blemishes at the same time

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
