Blemish is my concern over acne which is very rare occasions on my dry uneven face. This blemish control scrub has kept my blemish under control and using for months has given me lasting results.

This stuff is great for removing dry skin or extra junk off of your face. I’ve been told that it’s not good to use a scrub everyday, so I try to use it about 2-3 times a week, but my skin is soft and fresh every time I use it.

This is one of the most amazing products i have ever used. I have a lot of dark spots on my face due to my acne and me picking them. But when i started using this product my face started to clear up slowly and i have less breakouts now but my face feels smoother and looks clearer thanks to this wonderful product

For someone who has always struggled with acne this is amazing. When you scrub your face its not too harsh and makes your skin feel great right after. I have definitely seen improvement on my skin using this on a daily basis.

Love this stuff but they changed the formula slightly and it doesn't smell as good. It does a great job getting all of the excess skin off of my face and leaves me feeling super clean and soft!

This face wash gets my makeup off really well and removes all of the dead skin off my face leaving it feeling super clean and smooth. Sometimes it's a little rough which I don't like but overall it's a great product!

I have extreemly acne prone skin. Typically you are not to exfoliate that skin type. However, this is very gentle, and i never felt raw and sore afterwards. You do have to use a good moisturizer though.

After getting pregnant, my teen acne came back! Of course, being much older, I tried fancy stuff before coming back to this product of my youth. I'm happily acne free now, thanks to this scrub!

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