This product works amazing. It makes my skin nice and soft and prevents breakouts. Not only does it work wonders but it is also a pretty cheap cleanser. It exceeded my expectations and i will use this product forever.

I love this facial wash! It is a super good exfoliating face wash and really makes the skin soft. While I don't think it necessarily gets rid of black outs it keeps my break outs to a minimum. And the smell is awesome!

this is a great scrub for slight acne. I have used this product many times. it feels great on and it smells really great as well. There is “scrub” particles so it could agitate sensitive skin. 100% recommend trying it.

I remember buying this in highschool. I was a fan of exfoliating since I had pretty bad skin .. I thought the large beads we're good for you to help clean skin. But I learned later on that it's way too harsh for your skin.

Cleans and exfoliates my skin and leaves it feeling soft and clean. It meet my expectations. I bought mine from Walmart. Very effective at exfoliating the skin. I have sensitive skin and it was gentle enough for me.
