This is good for skin with the occasional pimple, but if you have acne you need to get something stronger, like Clean & Clear or Neutrogena. The smell is really nice though!

I love this product and use it all the time. It is the only product I have found that cleans my oily skin without drying it out. I love how it scrubs my face with the little exfoliators in the cream.

This product didn't work for me. I breakout from stress which leaves some dark spots for weeks. While it didn't have anymore negative effects, I found that Biore's scrub was much more effective and leaves my skin feeling super clean.

Best stuff ever!. It smells good and leaves your face feeling fresh and clean and removes all dead and dry skin. I love using this in the shower when all my pores are open. My skin loves this product.

I have never really had terrible acne and I started using this about one year ago. Although I did not see major difference, I like the way it feels on my skin after a long day

This scrub is awesome for clearing out any clogged pores and bumpy skin that can be accumulated throughout the week. It's also great for the body as well! Be sure to use sparingly though, it is very abraisive.

This has been my go to scrub since I was a teenager. The only product that didn't make me breakout after usage. I use it most right after the gym so get rid of the sweat and grime. I also use it on my back and arms to help control any blemishes that might arise. Works wonders.

I been using this for a couple of months and it has helped me clear my face. I also like the way it smells and it also helped by keeping my face not that oily during the day.
