I find this stuff works really well. It smells soooo good. When I used this, I always had perfect skin. That when I was 16/17. So, it's good for teenage skin.

A very good face scrub that can pulled off all of the dirt that sitting deep in your skin. Leave your skin clear and fresh yet not giving you a drying effect.

Love this product. Use it every day and it keeps my skin soft and really helps with excess grease. I also find my skin breaks out less when I use it regularly.

This is my holy grail face wash. Nothing treats my acne better than this. It is very abrasive but also gentle enough that I use it every day without a problem.

Wouldn’t recommend to those with sensitive skin as it was a bit too harsh for me. However did leave my skin soft immediately after using. Won’t be repurchasing
