This is and always will be my favorite scrub. I'm not prone to acne but it does help prevent the blackeads from clogged pores.

I don’t like this one as much as the green tea. It’s too harsh for my skin. I don’t ever see a difference when using this one.

I used this in high school a lot. I haven't used it too much in my adult years. It's a great product and it gets the job done.

I started using this as a teen and haven't stopped. So great for bringing dull skin back to life and clearing up problem areas.

I used this scrub for years, I'm not entirely sure why I stopped, perhaps because of price differences. It's wonderful though.
