Makes my skin feel clean. Removes any excess makeup and dirt that my makeup remover wipes doesn’t get off. Keeps my breakouts minimal, and my skin feeling both smoother and cleaner. Haven’t found anything that works better than this product.

The exfoliating qualities of this face was makes my face feel so smooth. The peach scent makes me feel like I’m at the spa right in my own home. I love how I can pick it up at any drug store on my way home. Such an amazing product.

I heard this product actually scratched the surface of you skin and damages it, I used to use t for years and never really thought the exfoliating was doing that much harm but now that I know that knowledge I will no longer use it

I used to love this product until I started to notice tiny little scratches all over my face. This is the only thing that they possibly could've came from. The beads are WAY too harsh for my skin.

I love this cleanser. It is an amazing deep cleanser. However because it can be really harsh on the skin you have to be careful not to use it too often. Not a daily scrub by any means. More like once a week to get a nice deep clean.

I don't use this product every day, but more like every other week. I typically use it when my face is particularly oily or I see acne popping up. It definitely softens and exfoliates wonderfully!
