This blemish control scrub is really good. It has oatmeal and it helps my blemishes a lot. The smell is good and it is also good to tone down my pimples.

I use this product everyday. It doesn't really destroy acne but it does calm it. It cleans the face well. I like to use this product with my Clearsonic.

This face wash has been my absolute favorite for years. I get blackheads all the time, and this has consistently done a great job of keeping them at bay!

This wash really did help keep my face clear. The smell was also much better than most acne face washes. It also helped stop my skin from being as oily.

I love it! I only use it like once or twice a week and it works amazing! The other days you don't use this product i would go in with a softer face wash.

It worked to fight and prevent clogged pores but it would dry my skin out and make it feel different. It didn't leave my skin feeling smooth and natural

I love this product. It's the only exfoliator that really gets all the dead skin off my face without drying it out. I've gone through roughly 4 bottles.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
