I love this face scrub. It smells amazing. I recommend.  Definitely met my expectations, it leaves my face feeling fresh and smooth. I only use it twice a week, since I have sensetive skin and it does exfoliate.

This has always been my go to face wash. I love the exfoliating balls, it really gets into the skin and leaves you feeling satisfied! They also have different bottles, for a different face texture. I love this.

This is the only thing I use to scrub my face. Smells good. Works great. And is inexpensive. I've tried slot of higher end products and nothing meets the mark like this does. I will repurchase this over and over.

I like this product but I didn’t really notice a difference after using it for a while. It’s medium price I would say and feels good after using it but I didn’t see any real improvements with my skin. I recommend using the pink lemon one instead!

I don't hardly any blemishes as an adult, but I still use this product from time to time. Is a good exfoilater that leaves skin soft and bright. Is gentle but works. I have used this since my teens and has never failed me.
