As far as exfoliating, this is by far the best thing I've ever used. It isn't for everyone though. It can be extremely harsh for some people or if you use it too often. Use no more than once a week.

This used to be all I used but now go for different things first. It drys out my skin a little too much. I do have one left and use it occasionally with no real complaints.

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!

I've been using this product for over 10 years, I've tried higher end exfoliators and have not been happy with their results. This product always leaves my face soft and super smooth. It has never dried out my face or cUsed breakouts. I always keep this handy in my shower!

I use this every morning in the shower and it makes my skin very smooth! Not too sure that it exactly removes blackheads but it definitely makes your skin feel super clean!!

I purchased this a while ago and it broke me out. I wound up with more pimples that I went in with. My skin felt oily and like it had a build up. I wound up throwing it away.
