I've used this product for a few days now. And though I haven't seen any results in removing dark spots (skin damage/freckles), it certainly cleans my skin well. I like the very fine grains to help exfoliate and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. My skin feels very hydrated as well. There is no smell that I can detect. The nice thing is that a little goes a long way, it has a very thick lather.
