    Very Effective!

    Out of all the products I have by RR this is by far the best. It really helps clean your face and I have no irritation at all. I also have the rapid response detox cleanser which is made with Tea Tree oil and found this helped with my breakouts more.

    this item truly makes a difference

    I think this will be on my shelf for a loooong time - or until my skin type changes (which we know can actually happen)! The combo of aha and bha really allows this product to exfoliate your skin, but gently, and especially in a world where masks are the norm - for me - this product makes my skin feel fresh and clean at the end of the day.

    Very nice

    The scrubbing beads are gentle enough to not be irritating but tough enough to not feel useless. It also has a really nice orange-y scent. It also makes my skin feel smooth.

    My main gripe with it is it can be hard to get all of the beads off your face. You really have to rinse off. I also find that I can run through it pretty quickly if I am not careful. But it does make my skin feel smooth without feeling stripped, it scratches my itch to have an acid in my AM routine without using a serum, and is a nice option when I want to exfoliate at night-time.

    I use this every day!

    I love this product, I use it every morning and make sure to moisturize with a toner, serum(s) and lotion. I thought it would be too harsh to use everyday but that hasn’t been the case as long as I moisturize afterwards. :) I have badly clogged pores and lots of build up On my face. This really helps get the build up off and lessens pimples, cysts, acne spots, and blackheads. I’ve been using this for a year- I keep one in my shower and one by sink and don’t plan on ever letting it go. I hope my review helps, just make sure to moisturize!!!

    Texture Perfection

    This has been a great addition to my morning routine. I love the texture of it–it's perfect for gentle cleansing and exfoliating, but it's not harsh at all. I have sensitive skin, so I have to be really careful about the cleansers I use. The AHA/BHA cleanser is a winner.
