Gentle - odd smell

This is a refreshingly gentle exfoliating scrub... but I did not find the scent terribly pleasant. It's difficult to describe.

It performed as expected, but I will not reorder because of the strange fragrance.

leaves my skin feeling smooth/clean

I like the way this leaves my skin feeling very smooth and clean. I use this 1-2 times a week. This does not have a very powerful scent, but it does have a mild scent.

Not Sure Yet
Purchased

I have two other exfoliating products that I had prior to buying this. I do like the way my face feels after using, as it feels softer than when I use the other two products I have. The big test will be if it helps control my acne or makes it worse. I am perimenopausal and have been having issues with acne, so interested to see what this does. I have high hopes this will be my new favorite scrub and I can get rid of the other two I own. More to come................

works great for everyday use

I love all the philosophy products. This is a great everyday exfoliater. You can really feel the difference after the 1st use. Recommend this to everyone.

Gentle exfoliating cleanser

I tried this cleanser for the first time--and was a little hesitant, as my sensitive combination skin can be unpredictable with new face washes. I was thrilled to discover the cleanser is very mild and gentle, still giving me the soft skin without the harsh abrasion. A new must-have for my skincare routine.

My Go To Exfoliator

This is the best exfoliating face wash I have ever used. I keep a bottle of it in the shower, and use it with my face brush for smooth, clean skin. I tried it about 3 years ago, and have not bought another morning face wash since! I think anyone who tries it would agree. It has the smallest beads, but you can feel them between your fingers. It is finer than grit so it won't damage your face. Always remember to shake your bottle upon every use to make sure these beads are evenly distributed.

This is now my go to exfoliating wash! Has such a clean smell and it is not rough on the face. Afterwards my face feels a million times better. I was happy for the size of the bottle for the price.

I am in love with this cleanser. I have fair, sensitive skin that can look pinkish. I've used this cleanser every evening for the past week. My skin is super soft, smoother, more evenly colored, pores look smaller. All this is immediately noticeable after the first use. It has not been the least bit irritating. My husband even commented on my skin tone. Another awesome side effect is that my moisturizer and foundation glide on like a dream after using this. I hesitated to buy because of the price - Well Worth Every Cent.

Great

I have dry skin and after cleaning my face my face wasn't overly dried out. It made my skin very soft after I put the moisturizer on too!
