For my husband and I this is a must have to keep in the shower! I've been using it i'd say for at least 10 years or so. I love the gentle smell and the exfoliate isn't too rough on my sensitive skin and leaves my face feeling fresh and clean every time.

It has no nano plastics, just natural walnut shells, really cleanses my pores. I absolutely love this and have been using it since I was 12. It has never failed me yet. My face feels amazing after washing it with this!

This is my baby!!! I couldn't live without this. Every night and every morning I get my little cleansing brush I put a little dot right in the middle and turn that sucker on and wash my face. Once I've rinsed and applied my moisturizer my face feels brand new

Great product! Good cheap alternative to microderm. Helps minimize pores over time, exfoliates dry skin, and reduces blemishes for a more radiant/balanced/even skin tone. Would highly recommend for combination skin types.

This scrub is just abrasive enough to make you feel like your face is really being exfoliated without leaving it in pain. I love the way it smells and how smooth and clean my skin feels after use. I would not use this product everyday because it can dry out your skin after a while. However, for good exfoliation a couple times a week, I would hike recommend it!

I love this face wash because on my nose I have a lot of blackheads and the scent is good and when I wash my face and exfoliate with the beads and stuff in the face wash wash it really clears my face making it feel clean of course , no dirt , cleans pores and everything else so if your looking for a good black head face wash than this is what you should buy

From a student estheticians view this is the worst thing u can do for ur face! It's way to harsh and makes little cuts in your delicate skin on the face. Great to use to exfoliate elbows, knees and even ur bum or legs.

I love this brand, so I thought I would try this face wash to help with black heads. This product just made my face raw and no amount of mostierizer would help the issue. Great brand but not one of my favorite products.

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