I have been using this facial scrub for about nine months now, hoping that it would help clear the acne on my forehead. Unfortunately, I haven't seen much progress, so I can't recommend this to anyone struggling with acne or blemishes. For the quality of this cleanser, I can't say that the price is reasonable (I paid about 4.00 for it). For those of you who like scrubs, this would be a good product to use to make your face appear fresher.

Th a acne control wash is the best! It smells so good and it works amazingly. You will see how quickly it works within two days. It’s cheap and easy to find. Did I mention I use this one twice a day for the best results.

The water at college really didn't do nice things to my skin, it made it rough and dry. Once I used this I noticed a difference in my makeup application because it helped so much with textures on the face. I have purchased this item countless times and still love it.

I honestly did not like this. It left my skin feeling like it hadn’t been clean and as if there were some type of residue or film still on my skin. Won’t be buying this one again.

This is a great exfoliator and feels good on the skin no matter the type. I recommend this a hundred percent, almost everyone I know uses it and it is a great, inexpensive product overall.

It does the job. It’s a good product. Doesn’t irritate or dry out but I do use a moisturizer after. Good smell and I always use it. I get it from CVS all the time. And the price is reasonable for something I always buy.

This stuff smells great! I love the fact that it allows my face to feel clean and helps to remove and keep blackheads away. I actually picked up a small travel size but, once that runs out I plan to buy the bigger size.

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