Personally, not my favorite. I was super intrigued by it, but the exfoliation beads are way too harsh for my skin (I have sensitive skin) and it burned my eyes when trying to wash off any eye makeup. It smells nice though!

So I've bought this before in the past and had no issues, loved the product and it smells great. But this last batch was horrible. Bought it, waited a couple of days to use it and after I opened it and went to squeeze some out, it literally exploded out in a spray of just water. Nothing holding the formula together, very disappointed, especially considering the price. Will have to rethink buying this again.

this is a great facial scrub, and it’s rated good on the yuka app. it’s not at all abrasive on my sensitive skin and not drying at all either. this scrub has been keeping my acne at bay and my pores significantly look smaller! it also has a slight smell but it’s not too bad. will continue to repurchase (:

I have very oily skin specially after a long day. I’ve tried a lot of matte make up and setting sprays but I finally decided to try different face wash. I am on my 4th day and already seeing results. Did not have to change my make up products and not even using setting spray anymore.

Stripping but non drying and refreshing. Gets the skin squeaky clean, not requiring toner but not drying. Moisturizer afterwards is optional

I am addicted to this face wash. I use it for an exfoliant about 2-3 times a week. It’s not super harsh on my face at all, and helped clear up a little acne even!

I’ve been using this for over 5 years. I’m in my 40s and still had adult acne, and this has cleared up my skin like nothing else I’ve used. The smell doesn’t bother me like other reviewers, it smells good to me. I love the feeling of this creamy scrub, and my skin never feels dry or taught, it feels healthy and normal. My only complaints are they recently raised their price and the label on this is horrible. I keep this in my shower but out of direct water contact and the label still starts to flake off and there’s little black pieces from the label all over my shower. This has always happened around the two week mark, and a bottle generally lasts me four weeks with twice daily use.

I love how it made my skin feel! The fragrance was a little strong for me, but not too bad overall. I never really noticed a difference but I have had family members who had a big difference. I would recommend to really wash your face with water after because the little beads can get stuck in larger pores.

Since my son started using this cleanser his skin is clean and clear. He was previously on acne medication and stopped about a year ago. With helmets from sports and constant sweat his face was breaking out but since using this it’s so much better A+

Worth a try - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
So far this has helped my skin tremendously. I have PCOS and been suffering horrible acne especially near jaw line. I was using Panoxyl (I think it’s also worth a try) with this scrub at first but now I’m only using this product and this product alone is really helping my skin. I previously had paid quite a bit for Obagi (meh) and skin ceuticles face wash (made my skin worse) but this scrub is way better and so is the price. Another product that did help was the SKIN CEUTICLES BLEMISH SERUM (Its very pricey) but I’m currently using PACIFICA ACNE DRYING LOTION (I also buy at Target) and it seems to help in combination with this scrub.
