I've been using it for about 3 months and it has made my acne on my face even worse than what it was before so I stopped using it so I give it 1 star. But it work good for my back acne so for that I'll give it 4 stars.

Used to use this everyday and then one day to the next I started getting bad acne, not sure if it was this or another product but I stopped using this and my face started getting better

Smells great and is a great exfoliant, the reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars is because it is very hard to get off for me and some times I'll find little exfoliant beads like hours later.

I think I've seen this on every girls bathroom counter through out the years. I've used this since high school. The scrub formula is thick and really scrubs deep down and leaves your face smelling fresh and clean. Love it

I love this scrub! It keeps my acne at bay without drying out my skin and after I tried it out as a mask by leaving it on for about 2 min before rinsing it off (to let the salicylic acid loosen the dead skin), it did an even better job of exfoliating!

I loved this product in the beginning. It worked so quickly to get rid of all pimples. Until a couple weeks into it and then it made me and the rest of my family break out extremely bad.

This product is great. I have used it and currently have it in my shower for use. It leaves my skin fresh, smooth and feeling great. Clear for black heads and pimples. Only thing is I also used the Publix brand and it works just as great and is about a dollar and some change less than the brand name.

This face wash would be perfect if I didn't already have super sensitive skin. I loved the exfoliating beads but it made me break out worse due to the harshness of the formula. If it wasn't so harsh I would love it.

This is my go to face wash! I use it 3 times a week and it keeps my skin looking and feeling fresh. I've used it for the past 6 years and it has never failed to work. For only $4 at Walmart it's well worth the price.

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