I like this scrub, but if you have acne prone skin, it doesn't do too much in helping with that. It's nice just to scrub oil and dirt off!

This really helped with my black heads and it made my face smell sooo good. I use this about every other day so it doesn't dry my face out.

This is my favorite face wash. It's not too abrasive but it exfoliates off the dead skin and really gets into your pores for a deep clean.

This is so harmful to your skin. It's so abrasive and can lead to hyperpigmentation. Any dermatologist would tell you to stay away from it

Works great. Inexpensive which is a plus. I use it daily in the shower to clean my face. It always leaves my face soft and it's not oily.

I use this scrub a few times a week in the shower. It helps remove dead skin and I think it has helped keep my oily skin and acne in check.
