I have this except my dermatologist made it into a face wash for me. I can't use it anymore. The pain is causes is insane. It burns my face so bad, that even using lotion afterwards makes it worse. My face would feel like it's on fire. It made my face red as a tomato, but it did help a little with acne. Never again though. Burns way too bad, for too long, and it's just too painful.
I used this when my acne was at its worse, and it pretty much did nothing. Everyone is different, but for me, I really saw no difference. I think it dried out a lot of pimples quickly however. I also noticed my skin became very red after using the pads.
I purchased this as an alternative to my St. Ives Apricot scrub, and use both almost daily. This product is great because unlike the Apricot Scrub, it's no where near as harsh or rough but you still get a good exfoliation and it smells AMAZING! Although this doesn't help much with acne, I can see it reducing the redness in my face and leaves my skin so smooth.
I bought this in hopes that it would remove all the dry skin flakes, and just really exfoliate my skin. It works great! After using it daily for about 2 weeks I read that the little scrubby beads in it are harmful to your skin, however it makes my skin feel wonderful and smooth and fresh. I've reduced it to every other day or so rather than 2 times a day just so I don't risk any skin damaging. I scrub gently as well.
