I started using this product this month and love it. It keeps the blemishes away and smells so good. I use it at night and it's so refreshing.

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.

I liked this facial scrub... Did it help with blemish control?... I guess you can say it did, but don't think it will clear you up completely.

For my sensitive skin, this scrub is a bit too rough, but I do use it on my body every week to open up the pores and scrub my body extra clean!
