Now i know you’ve probably all heard of this one but it’s truly a miracle... with the natural exfoliant and the wonderful smell, your skin will be soft and glowy after a single use. I’ve been using this cleanser for years i’m obsessed with it

This is one of my favourite exfoliating face washes, it works great for removing any dead skin and will leave your face feeling super smooth! This scrub is also available at most drugstores and is well priced so its a great buy

Loved this scrub! It has a lovely, gentle formula. It didn’t necessarily meet my expectations in the acne department. I never did repurchase because there are more effective face washes out there. Room for improvement for sure

I really love this scrub. It exfoliates and it’s not too harsh and not too gentle it’s just right for my skin but I’ve read posts saying that this gives you micro tears in the skin and so I’m kind of tempted to stop using it

Cleared my skin really well and left it smooth. Easy to apply. Packaging was simple but very effective. Cleared my acne effectively. Overall, it is a really good product and I would definitely recommend to friends and family

This was my first ever facial cleanser I use after I started breaking out, and it never disappointed me. Didn't break me out, wasn't too harsh and left my face with a refreshing glow after every use! Also smells awesome!

Great product, it's my go to exfoliater and makes my face so soft after I would recommend that you put on a moisturizer after using it cause it can make your skin dry if you use it to often
