  • "This product really works. I have noticed it prevents breakouts, when I use it several times a week. It doesn't really dry out my skin or irritate it, which is saying a lot because my skin can be quite dry and sensitive. Love Neutrogena!" in 70 reviews

My go to scrub for acne. I picked this up at Cvs. It gets the job done and leaves my face feeling clean. It is a good price. I have been buying this for years and I will definitely be sure to buy again.

I like this facial scrub but I marked it a four because it’s not as gritty as I’d like. I use It more as a daily cleaner than an exfoliating scrub. I have bought it multiple times for a daily cleaner.

This does not work at all. It dries my face out to an extreme. I will probably never buy it again as it was my first time buying it. Definitely a harsh wash, with too much drying products in it. There is definitely room for improvement

This product is so good for people with oily skin!! It is one of the best for your face... I might dry your skin out a little to much but all you have to do is use it every other day instead!! Love it!

This is one of my favorite products for facial cleansing. It has cleaning beads inside that works really well when being scrubbed on your face. Definitely recommend for anyone with mix of oily/dry skin.

I’ve struggled with acne my whole life and now at 21 years old I finally found something that is affordable, effective, and available anywhere you go! I would recommend this to anyone that loves clear skin, but hates harsh products.

This cleanser is super good from people with acne because it not only help clear your skin but it also helps with future acne. I buy mine at Walmart and it is worth every penny. I have purchased it more than 5 times it's that good.

What it is: A daily scrub that fades the look of past acne marks, clears present breakouts, and helps prevent future breakouts.

Key Ingredients: Salicyclic acid, water, soy bean extract, cetyl alcohol, polythylene, fragrance

How it feels/smells/looks: It is a white, pearly cream with scrubby beads in it. It smells strongly chemical and not very pleasant. It is moisturizing on the skin, while being a refreshing scrub.

Why I like it: It is a decent cleanser and scrub, but I would not buy it again. The beads in it are polluting the environment, so I cannot recommend this unless they reformulate it with environmentally friendly beads. This is the drugstore version of Lush’s Ocean Salt, but I love Ocean Salt ten times better since it has more immediate benefits for my skin. This scrub is good if you don’t work or don’t want to invest in fancy skin care. I would really suggest Ocean Salt though. The small pot has lasted me a year of use.

Neutrogena is the only brand I have found that doesn't dry out my skin but also controls the oil. I sweat a lot and am harsh to my skin. After I wash my face my skin feels clean soft and refreshed.
