I use this on problem areas only. I carefully and gently use it on all my blemishes sort of like a spot treatment, and it works great. For the rest of my face I use a gentle face wash for dry skin.

This is an oldie but a goodie for me. I have used it off and on for years! When I don't use it, I miss it so I always go back. There is definitely no other product like it.

I like this scrub. My face feel very clean after using and I did notice it helped reduce blemishes. If used too often it can dry my skin out a bit but overall good product.

I don't have to use many facial cleaners but when I do I go with st. Ives. I like the tiny balls that helps clean the deeper surface and it good on price. It's not expensive for such a great item

I like it enough to use it. I don't have skin issues and I get a pimple maybe once every few months. Blackheads don't really come up either but its still nice and makes me face feel a bit smoothr.

I love the smell of this product and I can really feel it cleansing my skin. However, I can also feel it drying out my skin. But as always, thanks Influenster for sending me this face scrub to try.

This a great exfoliant or and I feel it has helped with acne as well but my face is so smooth after I use it.. The only downfall I would say is that sometimes it makes my face greasy afterwards.
