This is a great face wash! I use this specific one 2-3 times a week! It really does get rid of blackheads... my nose and face feels so smooth after I wash my face. I would recommend it!

I just bought this last week and it has helped to clear my face a lot more than it was before. It burns when it gets in your eyes so you gotta be careful. Other than that, it works great.

I do love this stuff but it seems to keep going up in price every time i purchase it. I use it once or twice a week. too much use of this product will eventually make your skin more oily

This scrub is too abrasive for anyone's face, it's made with real pieces of seed shell, creating micro cuts in your skin allowing bacteria in to make more acne and makes your skin very sensitive. I wouldn't recommend.

This is one of the facial cleansers I have reached for multiple times. My skin always feels soft and smooth after use and you can always get a good deal on it (especially with coupons).

This facial scrub is very gentle on my very sensative skin. I use it once a week and i see a drastic change in the amount of blackheads on my nose. Leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth!

Been using this scrub biweekly for about 2 years. its exactly what it's presented to be, a good solid product. if you want a face scrub to get all the oil and buildup outoutout, this will give you a good deep clean.

Smells good, is gentle on the skin, and it makes your face feel fresh - all for a good price. I have been buying this since I was about 13 years old, so it is one of my go-to beauty items.
