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.

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...

-makes your skin feel refreshed


-didn't clear acne
-didn't prevent redness or acne
-made me breakout

my acne is light, and i only get a few pimples on my face. i had high hopes for this product since it made my skin feel so good after the first use. i used it twice a day all over my face. i woke up the next day with five more zits which was extremely unusual for me, and with the same zits still there, same size and same redness. i kept using the product, and the acne didn't go away. i finally tried popping one of the zits and using the face wash afterwards, and the zit slightly improved the next day, but still wouldn't go away. i stopped using this product after a while and switched to using no product, and the majority of the acne got better after i stopped using it. this product is definitely not for me.

Micro Beads feel cool


-Was ineffective
-Acne appeared in places that it was NOT originally in
-Left pores feeling clogged

This scrub is a waste of money and time. I'm a teen who has tried many acne treatments, none of which have worked, including this one. I'm desperate for anything to clear up my skin. Most of my acne is in the corners of my nose, upper cheeks, and chin.

Made my skin feel smooth.


Did nothing for my acne

i gave this product a fair chance, i used it 2 x a day for about a week but it was way too harsh on my skin.So i only decided to use it 2 times a week. It lasted me about 2 months, so i really gave it a fair shot. This may be an affordable product and it may make your skin feel smooth but thats really all there is to it .
