I bought this product because I wanted an exfoliating product, but wanted to reduce the number of things I needed to keep in my shower to exfoliate. I really like how this product uses natural ingredients. If anything makes it down the drain, it does no harm to the environment. I think the product exfoliates well and does not leave my skin screaming for moisture like my old exfoliating system did. I have acne prone skin and use this with the active charcoal soap for best results. Overall, I would recommend the product.
