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.

This product is great! After only a couple uses I could see a huge difference with my breakouts on my face & chest! Great price for a great exfoliate!

I've been using this scrub for months and most of my acne has already gone away. My skin feels so soft and replenished and I'm happy to use this product.

Really exfoliates your skin! I love the beads! Use it 2-3 times a week so that you don't over dry your skin! Really digs deep into pores and exfoliates.

I love this face wash. It scrubs my face well, but isn't painful. It also smells great, unlike the generic versions. Also, it's good for the environment!

It smells great, but it doesn't remove black heads as fast as I would like. It takes at least 2 weeks for it to even start noticeably removing blackheads

I used this for my face and it did work. The only thing you have to use for more than a month (well for my skin) for the blackheads to slowly disappear.

I've tried ProActive as well as many other different products and this is the only one that actually makes my face less oily and leaves it feeling clean.

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