This product I believe lives up to its name. It controls blemishes and gets rid of the crap that is on your face. Makes my face feel super clean and fresh. Smells great which is a plus, makes you want to use it more :P I like to use this scrub in the shower to exfoliate my skin and it does the job great.

This scrub is great for exfoliating skin. I have oily skin and this helps with preventing spots. I am a repeat user I have used this product many times. It has a simple packaging and would definitely recommend this.

This product has been fantastic for my skin !  After a couple of uses i noticed a difference in the way my skin looked and felt. The scrub was not too rough and actually felt comfortable to use on the skin. It also has a lovely scent to it. This is the most effective product that really helped me to fight blemishes and scarring of past blemishes.

This product has a gritty-like texture that exfoliates the rough, dead skin off of your face while leaving your skin feeling baby soft! It also cleans deep within the pores to remove rhe unsightly blackheads and gives your skin a rejuvenated effect-well worth it to get smoothness and a youthful appearance.

This scrub gives a very deep cleanse to the skin. The texture is very gritty so it may not be ideal for very sensitive skin. However, it works like a charm for myself and cleans out all of my pores leaving me with a fresh face. The packaging is a nice squeeze tube and the product smells great! It also comes with a great price tag that doesn't break the bank!

I love this product for my face. I have really dry and chapped skin most of the time unless I use this product because i sometimes with other products will have overly dried skin afterwards but not with this product!

10/10 ! I use this 2-3 times a week and its amazing. It helps clear blackheads and prevents future ones. It's great because you can buy this at your local drugstore or Walmart for like 12 dollars and it's just as good as a high end scrub. It doesn't dry out my skin at all and I use it on my back if I have acne in the summer from sweating and it works great !

I use this brand daily. I used to suffer with severe acne and this cleanser would help my break outs. I tried multiple different methods for outbreaks but I have a very oil skin. This product worked the best for me!

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