This face scrub always leaves my face super clean and my pores clear! It would be a five star review if I wasn't allergic to the apricot in it.

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!

I didn't notice a major acne difference but rather a smoothr face. If you suffer from regular acne try the green tea scrub. It is phenomenal.
