This one really works and leaves the skin feeling smoother after use. However, I no longer use this because the beads in it irritate my senisitive skin. :(

Love the cleansing beads. Really gets down into your pores like a good cleaner should. Does not smell the greatest in my opinion,but overall good product.

This is go-to everyday face wash. While it isn't rough, it does wonders in getting off my make-up and making my face feel refreshed after a strenuous day.

I love this but its very abrasive and feels a bit too rough for facial skin. I love this as a body scrub especially in winter months when my skin is drier

The best exfoliater I've ever used and I have repurchased it many times. It is a deep exfoliater and I would only recommend using it 3 or so times a week.
