Works great for my acne prone skin! Isn't too harsh of a scrub but it still feels like its getting the job done. Doesn't dry my face out either and it smells good!

It leaves my face feeling fresh and clean. It also makes me feel like it is really cleaning away the dead skin because of the micro beads that are in it as well.
It is such a good product . It definitely is a blemish control . It's also moisturizing after applying . I highly recommend it too people with blemish problems .

I love the smell and works pretty good. I only recommend you use it two pr three times a week and not to scrub too hard. It's a good buy for what you pay for it.
