I like this product for a facial scrub, but not for every day use. It does help with pores and fights blemishes but there are other less harsh products I prefer that do the same thing. However, when you need to exfoliate every once in awhile this is a great product

Love the clean feel this product gives me face. My face feels smoothr and fresher. It does leave quite a bit of residue in my tub which is a pain, but otherwise a good acne/blemish product.

I love to use it as part of my skin ritual. I use it once or twice a week when I feel like I need a good facial scrub (like when I feel my skin feels to oily). I love the smell and the texture.

I just came to the USA and the city where I'm coming from is always more than 100°F so my skin was having excessive break out. I started to use this product twice a week and I'm doing fantastic

A bit rough for my sensative skin, but the after math of it is FLAWLESS! The exfoliating beads are rough, but it makes your skin SUPER soft afterwards and lasts. I only need to use this scrub maybe twice a week for it to last!

One of the few less expensive cleansers that actually works ! It is gentle yet really exfoliates and helps your skin feel clean and invigorated ! I definitely recommend this product to everyone.

I absolutely love this product and i would highly recommend it. I use it on a regular basis. I feel it working as I'm applying it, and when I'm finished my face feels fresh and rejuvenated! A++

I wish I could give this a 5 star rating, but I can't. I've tried this multiple times and it never seems to work. The smell isn't too bad and I love the exfoliating beads

I use this every day! I have dry/oily skin. It does wonders for my face. It doesn't irritate it at all, and my face feels so clean after I use it. Also, it really helps get my acne under control.
