This is a very good drug store scrub! It is very coarse though so you would want to be very gentle with it and just let it do it's job. I'm not too sure about it controlling blemishes but it will give you a fresh looking glow!

I typically don't use scrubs because of very dry skin, but I have to say, this stuff is amazing! My skin feels so clean every time I use it and it smells great which is always a plus. I would definitely buy this product again.

I used to use this product every day and it was great, but then I read an article that said it still contained the same chemicals as most face washes, even though it says that it's all natural. I was really bummed about that.

I tried this product for about 3 months a couple of years ago, at a time when my skin was in a really bad, pimply condition. Anyways, not only did it increase the amount of acne I had, but it really irritated my skin and made me so uncomfortable! Meh. Yay or nay? NAY.

Okay first of all I have combination skin. Some days this scrub worked great, other days it would dry out my skin horribly. The days my skin was super oily the scrub made my skin shine and it was smooth and smelled amazing! I'm 50/50. If you have oily skin go for it.

I love the way this product feels while on my face. It smells very pleasant as well. Feels like it has little beads in it that really do a great job at scrubbing away.

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