This would work initially but over time would cause me to re break out. It is very corse so you have to be careful not to damage your skin. I wouldn’t re purchase.

This is my go to face wash for acne control. I’ve been using this for a couple years now and I love it. It’s a good price for the quality of it. I would definitely recommend this product and I will be buying it again.

I bought this as a friend recommended it to me, I was impressed with the way it removed all the dead skin on my face and left me with a soft surface, I do however feel it was harsh on my skin to use rather than gentle. I do like the packaging, it's plain but gets the message across of what it should do.

My go to scrub for those times when my skin is really rough, either from whiteheads peeking out or dry patches. It is really coarse but it gets the job done. I will always love this scrub!

In my opinion it's a great product. I will buy again. I bought it for the first time a while back and i loved it. It is gentle to the skin. I think for what you pay for it's really nice. I will refer it to my friends

Great face scrub, use this every 3-4 days. Have repurchased this product many times. Great value for money, especially when it is on offer. It can be harsh, so you have to be careful to not over do it when using it.

A great drugstore product which cleanses and exfoliates the skin. It's not my favourite to use on my face because the exfoliation side of it is quite sensitive on my skin, however it smells amazing and cleanses well!
