Worst thing i have ever tried
If i could help one person by writing this review, i will be content. Last year i did not wash my face, not even in the shower. However 10 months ago i came across this wash in the bathroom and my mom had been using it for her acne. I tried it once and i loved how smooth it made my skin. I ended up purchasing over 15 of these and i used this for over 6 months, because i loved how smooth it made my skin. It was the only product i ever used. After the 3rd month of using my skin became itchy, dry and painful. So i bought a moisturiser, and it helped. I continued to use and i remember very clearly i started getting cysts on my cheeks, and i freaked out and starting using this more. 10 months after, i now have moderate cystic acne and i am going back to using water and natural products on my face, however my face will NEVER be the same. Please do NOT use this. If your skin is fine and you dont use anything on it, or if you're using something gentle STICK WITH IT. Less is more.

The scrub has helped some of my acne. I made my skin soft because of the exfoliating beads (which sluff off dead skin). But every time a pimple goes away, another one come back! It's annoying. I don't know if its working or not, because pimples are going, and new ones come back.

Just Horrible.




Irritated skin
Didn't help get rid of acne

It left my skin red and irritated. Sometimes my skin would even peel! It did no good getting rid of acne... Do not use if you have sensitive skin.

If I could give it half a star or no stars for the rating I would. My mother brought me this product when I was in school and all it did to my face was spread my pimples around, give me more pimples, big red irritated red cheeks, dry skin followed by my skin freaking out and becoming super oily and left me feeling even more depressed once i looked in the mirror. If you have sensitive skin like me DO NOT USE IT! Just don't...

-exfoliation beads
-great for oily skin


-tends to dry out skin due to the ingredients (not intended for sensitive skin)

I was having bad acne left and right especially now that I have bangs! It was so unattractive. This is a must!!! I needed something fast and the fact that my facial skin is oily too this was a great plus. I love the exfoliating beads and it made my skin feel really clean afterwards. I use a benzol peroxide cream from target's brand with this scrub so it helps out alot as well. Never dried out my skin though! but this is something that you have to use continously to see results.
