Great product, improves complexion from first use. Great for oily skin

Emmanuela Boakye


Have used this product for 3 weeks and what a noticeable difference. I love the texture and smell, it has a grainy texture but not too harsh and my sensitive skin is glowing. I feel, and can see a difference in my skin. I have been using a very expensive product (three times the price) but this one suits my skin and I love it. Definitely been added to my Christmas list.

Loving this face scrub! It leaves my skin super soft and clean, and I think it also helps to keep my acne at bay. Plus the smell is incredible. I've been looking for a product like this for a while, and am very happy I finally found something that works, will definitely use it again.


Great product that isn’t too harsh on sensitive skin.


Makes my skin very soft. Not too strong or drying - I have dry eczema prone skin. I only use 1-2x a week.

Linda Young

Very clean & smoother skin /just would like a bit more perfume - only slightly Manderin

Samreen Ali

I like it for using on my face but not everyday. I am using every 2 to 3 days and what i like is it do not dry out my really dry skin. I got this to ty rid of my white/black heads on face. I know it will take time mart see if it will work for that.


Lovely cleanser, skin feels soft and refreshed!

This face scrub is Devine. It leaves your skin clean and velvety smooth. It's the best one I've tried....

Ellie Corlett

Nice exfoliating yet gentle scrub, i use it 3 times a week as it can make the skin slightly tender after

Kayleigh Lewellyn

Nice scrub that leaves you feeling exfoliated without over drying your skin!


Great product


Great product. Noticeably improved skin.

Carly Skillett

Feels slightly oily but leaves skin feeling extremely soft and fresh.


Very gentle face scrub which can be used everyday. I have dry, sensitive skin, and it did not cause my skin to have a bad reaction, but it did feel a little tight and dry afterwards. However, if I do the oil cleansing method first, and then use it, it works fine, and my skin is brighter, and feels really soft. Also I can't believe how inexpensive it is! You get a lot of product for the price. Really happy that it is cruelty free too.


This exfoilator is super gentle and so effective. Leaves skin super soft and smooth. A little goes along way. I found that some exfoliators tend to be very harsh on my skin and leave it dry but this has been amazing. Leaves the skin soft and smooth and feeling hydrated. Love this product.


really nice exfoliator skin feels great after use

Nadyne De La Bertouche

I absolutely love this face scrub! So gentle, but my skin feels so smooth and clear after using for a few weeks. It's also fine to use over the eyes, which is unusual for a scrub/face wash. I often have sensitive skin, but all this does is make my skin glow! Amazing!

Stephanie Tan

Since I bought my first bottle a few months ago, I haven't stopped using this cleanser. It is effective yet gentle enough to use regularly. I used to use it twice every day since I felt like my face needed it; now I just use it once a day. Sometimes I leave it on for five minutes before rinsing it out. A must!

Louise Maxwell

The best cleanser I have ever tried. I have struggled with adult acne & within a few days of using this my skin started to massive improve & it’s the best it’s been in 4 years now. Amazing price & value for money. Only need a really small amount so it lasts months & skin feels amazing after it - not greasy or tight. I have tried many other very expensive products which are no where near as good as this.


Even though it's unscented, it does have a weird scent. But it leaves my skin feeling so smooth! Great for dry skin too, as it doesn't leave it dry and tight afterwards.

Jerri Callis

This cleanser has made the biggest difference in my skin in terms of acne, it's so gentle as an exfoliator, I use it as a second cleanser after a cleansing oil.


This is an excellent product for the right skin type. It easily cleared up some mild acne I had on my neck but unfortunately I could not tolerate it on my face. Turns out my skin was just too sensitive to the product as I am prone to patches of rosacea and dryness as well as acne. The company were fantastic at replacing for an alternative product that is working wonders. For the right skin type..oily, blemish prone, not too sensitive, this cleanser would work great.
