I used Soap and Glory's exfoliation scrub with my acne and it was okay. I felt that it took away a lot of dead skin, yet as far as helping my acne, it do not. I did not make my acne better or worse, you could try a sample for $3 from Sephora.com to see if it is okay for your skin. As far as acne skin and an exfoliation scrub I would recommend the brand Lush. Lush is made for people with acne or problem skin, their website provides many products and one is sure to work.
