This stuff is literally incredible! I have a complete combination of skin types from dry to oily to acne and this helps me with everything. I use it almost daily and it works wonders. Definitely worth it and easy to find everywhere! Key part of my skincare routine right now!

I use this face wash often. It smells great and it exfoliates really well. Definitely don’t recommend if you have really sensitive skin since it’s labeled as a deep exfoliador. If you really want something to remove blackheads and what not I definitely think this is for you.

This is one of my holy grail skincare products. It clears my face and leaves it really soft and smooth, but it is also gentle enough for regular use. I very much recommend this to anyone who experiences frequent acne breakouts or for anyone who just wants to remove dead skin

This is definitely my favourite scrub to use! I have gone through many tubes of this and it is very effective! It can feel harsh the first time it is used but my skin after using it feels so soft! I would definitely recommend this.

This scrub...oh my days this scrub. This is amazing, my skins feels so, so soft and looks so radiant after I have used this. I found it by chance when it was on sale, after using it I went back and bought 4 more to give to the ladies in my life!! It even smells great!

This is my lifesaver, i found this product about 5 years ago and have been using it ever since, has helped to keep my acne under control. My skin's redness has gone down by the next morning when using this and my pores feel tighter!

My absolute holy grail scrub. I know I probably shouldn't but I use this every day because it's one of the only products that has kept my acne in check. Obviously I still break out but this product has helped it stay under control. Love it!! Been using this for over 5 years.

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