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.

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.

I feel like this is actually really harsh on my skin, and can make it really dry. The results I get are alright, but have seen better from other products.

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

This is the only wash I buy. It scrubs all the grime, dirt, and dead skin away without feeling too harsh. I can use it daily and my skin does not dry out.

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.

Cleaned my face and did feel refreshed after, but I'm not sure if this actually helped. Will have to try again but there was a reason I stopped using this

Gets all of my dead skin off & a really good clean. I love this product, but feel like it isn't something I'd use on a daily basis & possibly twice a week.

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