I used this product for about 6 years. It did nothing but make my face dry. I have oily skin and it did not help it all. My pimples continued.

Works well when you have those monthly breakouts, it is a little grainy, I have mixes with my regular cleanser and it worked well that way too.

This product didn't work for me. My acne and black heads were still there after 8 weeks of use. But my non blemished skin looked nice after use

I wasn't overly impressed with this product actually I found it made my break out with regular pimples instead of just improving the blackheads

The product does a good job of cleaning out the pores. Always moisturize after using it else skin may tend to dry out, causing more blemishes!

This is like the worst thing you can ever put on your scrub. It's SO rough! It smells really nice though, but I would be weary of using this.

I love this scrub. Especially if you can find the store brand similar to this one. I just wish it had more tingle to it. It works really well.

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