An important product for my weekly routine. I use this around 3 times a week, and when I don't, I can instantly tell my skin is in dire need of it. It purifies and removes dirt from my face and allows there to be a new kind of shine to it. On days where I have been busy, this is just the perfect treatment for a clean and refreshed face. Been using this for a good 3 years now and not planning to stop anytime soon!

I do suffer from acne, now do I see a difference in my skin? Maybe? It's hard to tell if my skin has less acne or if its calmer due to more stable hormones. I can say that my face is redder though. I think I just don't react well to the salicylic acid.

A rough texture, great after a long day. I wouldn't recommend using more than once a day if you have oily skin. I use it once a day and it works great. Pretty much keeps my skin clear, sometimes when I use it too much, it dries out my skin. Still a great product though.

I am totally in love with this face exfoliator. It's very grainy which I personally really like as I feel like it's working if it's got lots of grains in it. I use this twice a week and after I have used it I see a difference in my skin. I have been using it for a while and my skin defiantly hea

I like this scrub a lot for the feeling and smell but I don't find that it has improved my acne whatsoever. I continue to buy it because my boyfriend loves it and the scrub is so refreshing but I don't agree with the Blemish Control label at all unfortunately.

This is the best scrub I’ve used. It is cleansing while also not being too rough. I’ve used it before and didn’t really like it but the second time i used it i loved it. I use it whenever my skin is really oliy or if i had a full face on. I recommend it but make sure to use a moisturizer after
