Using this scrub once a day has greatly helped my skin stay clear of blackheads and also has helped reduce pimples. There is a noticeable difference when I do not use this scrub and it's icky!

Wow. This is a steal! The best pharmacy facial cleanser out there. I occasionally have breakouts and this helps control them. Leaves your face feeling refreshed and renewed.

My daughter & I use this one every morning & night. It leave our face feeling soft, clean, most & health all day & night. We wouldn't use anything else on our face. It doesn't cost a lot which is nice.

This scrub is good for exfoliating but doesn't get rid of blackheads. The first few uses it feels good but then my skin dried out and I stop using it and blackheads are back.

I love this product because it exfoliates well and gets some of the black heads out. However, it doesn't get all the blackheads like it said it would. Overall, a good product.

This product is only supposed to be used 3-4 times a week but honestly, I use it everyday. I have very dry skin and I can handle exfoliating everyday. I don't have problem acne but I do have blackheads. This product leaves my face feeling soft and helps with the blackheads!
