Great cleanser for cheap. I wouldn't recommend using it everyday since it isn't good for your skin, but it works when you use it. Makes your skin smooth when you're done...if you have dry prone skin I would not recommend using it every day.

I have very oily skin and need something a little "rougher" than the usual to do the job. I have been using this daily for years. I have tried products that are similar but keep coming back to this! Reduces black heads, makes pores smaller.

Perfect for oily acne prone skin which is what i have my sister introduced me to this item and ive been using it for years for my oily acne prone skin, it is awesome and doesnt dry your skin out a bit abrasive though but i like the exfoliation!

Love this face scrub! Smells amazing and gets the job done. I saw my face clear up within days, and made it smoothr. I have very sensitive skin and it was not irritated at all by this product. Love it!

I love this stuff! I typically don't like smooth face washes bc a scrub feels like it's cleaning my skin much better. This is perfect for that. I use the blackhead and blemish control. It smells good and really cleans and prevents blemishes.

I love this scrub however I have found that this one can be a little more harsh than others. With that said I really like St. Ives and think this is good for once a week maybe.

I could see a result after one use!! It helped to clear up my acne and create smoother skin. It's affordable and smells good too. I will definitely be keeping this product on hand.

I've used sooooo many face washes in the past because of my skin. I felt like some of them made my face too oily and then the other ones dried my face out like nobody's business! But when I started using the blemish control plus the fresh skin face wash, I've noticed that my skin is so much softer now. Yes, I still occasionally get breakouts but they aren't as red and noticeable. I love it!

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