I love, love, love this scrub. I've had terrible skin since I was about 12 (I'm now about a month shy of my 18th birthday) and I don't think my skin has been this good in about 6 or 7 years, and it's definitely in part down to this.
My skin is noticeably clearer, and whilst I've always had very oily skin, and clogged up, noticeable pores, even that's improved. My skin is also much softer.
It's also such a bonus that you need such a small amount; less is more with this one, as it is with most scrubs, as they need not to do their job if you use too much. It's also kind enough to your face that you can use it twice a day, as the directions suggest, without it drying out your skin.
The reasons I haven't given it 5/5 are that it does take a little while to notice, -I'd say a couple of weeks- and because my skin was so bad in the first place, the skin around my chin still isn't too good. I would also say that this isn't going to clear up your skin, just improve it; I've been using it about two months and what I've noticed is that it will clear it up, but only to a certain point, and then it's just maintaining that level of clearness.
But overall, I would recommend this to anyone, especially someone with oily skin, if they were looking to clear up their skin.
I have tried lots of skin care products in the past, as I have combination skin. But since using this my skin has improved lots. I would also recommend Neutrogena visibly clear oil-free moisturiser. Its great!! :D
I like that it contains cucumber and green tea, and that it moisturises well, but I prefer my scrubs to have more scrubby action in them. I'm sure it's pretty good for the skin but if I'm gonna use a scrub, I want it to really feel like it scrubs off all the old, dead skin, and this, as well as many others, doesn't.
Ive Bought This Product Twice
When I Used It Beofre It Was Okay
It Cleared Uo My Skin In A Week & Left It Soft & Clear
Then After A Week I Started Experiencing Breakouts On My Chin & On My Cheeks Not Big Ones Just Mild Acne
Im Having The Same Experoence So I Just Dont Use It
I Am Usinfg Clean Start By Dermalogica Which Is A Teenage Range
Overall I Say BUY & TRY!!! continued >>
You get a generous amount of scrub in the container and you need to use very little to scrub you whole face. The scrub smells lovely, fresh and clean, with maybe a hint of cucumber. The exfoliating microbeads are round, which I appreciate. I've used scrubs in the past with ground nut shells that are horribly jagged and bad for the skin. This scrub is very gentle.
It contains salicylic acid, something I always look for in a scrub, as it can help to clear blemishes and blackheads. The scrub leaves my skin feeling clean and soft and does not have a drying or tightening effect.
I do not suffer from acne, so I cannot say whether this will help clear up or control spots. I enjoy the pleasant smell and the exfoliating effects and would repurchase this product.
This leaves my skin feeling amazing just after 5 minutes of having it on! I use this for my spots and redness and this scrub really helps. I don't use it daily but every other week if I have a breakout and my skin always clears up well afterwards. If you leave it on for 5-10 minutes it feels like a face mask and you get this tingling sensation. The green microbeads gently exfoliate the skin and leave it feeling soft and smooth. This is one product I will never live without again. It's one of my favourite skincare products and recommend to everyone!! :)
I do quite like this scrub. I have normal-combo sensitive breakout prone skin and this isn't drying on me at all, it leaves my skin feeling really soft. The scrub is creamy and has small round microbeads designed to exfoliate the skin. It has menthol in it which makes my skin feel slightly tingly for about 2 minutes after rinsing it off...but doesn't irritate me. It also contains green tea and cucumber which are supposed to soothe the skin. Despite being a scrub I do find it pretty gentle. It helps clear most of my blemishes and leaves my skin looking clear and soft. Overall I am happy with it and it's cheap considering Tesco, Boots and Superdrug usually have any 2 for £5 offer on Neutrogena.
I don't have spots, so I don't use it for that. Wasn't even looking for a scrub, as my skin generally doesn't like scrubs. But bought it along with the oil free moisturiser as they were both on sales. Very surprised with the results. I only use it occasionally in the morning when my skin is too flaky and dull for foundation. This removes the flakes and leaves a smooth surface ready for make up. Love the cool feeling on the skin too! Big tube, but I'll be buying another when I finish!
I prefer the Daily Blackhead Eliminator (though I don't have those or zits really, I am 51 so ya know..) but this is good. I alternate the two. I have clogged pore issues and nothing.. nothing!.. has helped for some years, but this IS. Alternating this with this brand's Daily Blackhead Eliminator and Clinique's Mild Clarifying that contains salicylic acid.. in fact all three products listed contain it has made a rather dramatic improvement and I mean fast. Surprised the heck out of me. This is gentle and that's nice.. I've been overzealous in scrubbing throughout the years. Using the right products, easily on your skin, seems to be the best approach. So glad to have found these!
Well i haven't used it for a long time, i just got it today. First i was scared it wouldn't work and would be like other creams [That don't work]. But i think it is a good product, it left my face smelling fresh and feeling fresh too! But i don't know if it will clear my spots = /
