I am not going to say that this is terrible because everybody has different skin, but I have never had a product dry my face out as bad as this did. I had skin peeling all over my face. It did kinda work on my acne because it dried it out so bad!! It has been two weeks since I have used this and even after oiling my face, my skin is still extremely dry.
i love this, it works very well with oily skin cleared my huge pimples in to 2 days, so thankful its almost 2 weeks and i hardly have any acne just a few pimples & scars, my skins never looked betterr
I don't really see it making a difference with my acne. But I do like the scent and the exfoliating beads. A little definitely goes a long way. So it will last longer. It's definitely worth $9.99 for me. I might buy this product again, unless I find something better.
I've never had a problem with acne until my first year of college... I broke out ALL over my forehead and chin and for about two years have had at least 2 (if not more) active pimples at a time. I tried everything.. MaxClarity, ProActiv, homemade treatments, everything - nothing worked. I bought this scrub randomly at Target but didn't expect much. Who knew this would be the product to solve all my problems? I used it twice a day (morning and night) for about 2-3 weeks until ALL my acne was gone. That was the first time my skin was CLEAR (now all I had we're the acne scars). Since my acne was gone, I stopped using it and have it in my cabinet only when I get breakouts. It clears them right away.
No acne treatment is going to work for everyone and if you're having trouble finding the product that works for you, I would highly recommend trying this scrub. If it doesn't work, oh well, you lost $8. But if it does, IT'S AMAZING AND WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. I would still have pimples all over my face if it weren't for this scrub. HG acne treatment!
This scrub is AMAZING. It feels really good on my face. It smells good too :) I've had acne for like 4 years, and most of it is gone now! While it is somewhat drying, I use the Neutrogena Rapid Clear Toner and a lotion from Bed and Body Works. It works really well, especially overnight!!
I would definitely recommend!
When I first started using this product, I thought it was awesome. After only a week my skin was looking clearer than ever, and felt pretty great! I kept using it, and noticed that after about two weeks it had stopped being so effective. I had little breakouts popping up and the face wash wasn't doing anything to them. My face started feeling a bit dry and the wash was stinging and burning a little. I kept using it for a bit longer, which apparently was a terrible mistake. I went to sleep, and then when I woke up I was greeted by a few very huge, very painful cystic zits on my chin and forehead, along with other new clusters of acne. It was awful, and I couldn't believe it all had happened overnight! I threw the bottle away angrily and finally decided it was time to see a dermatologist.
So I think I had some weird reaction to something in the face wash. It was not a fun experience!
This product is AMAZING! I've just gone through my third bottle, and this product helps me overnight. I often have many breakouts everyday, and some would be really huge pimples (I have very oily skin). So this product helped me reduce the acne on my face, and I can notice that my scars are starting to fade away.
This product is a little costly though, I got it for 8 bucks, and there isn't too much product, so you'll probably go through a bottle after 5 months (well I did, because I use this twice a day). It can also make your skin a little dry, but you'll notice the difference of your skin with just one wash. Overall, I'd buy this product again, but probably not for winter time :).
LOVE this! At first I was using another Neutrogena product, but then one night I ran out and had to wash my face (it gets super oily and acne prone if I don't), so I used my roommate's face wash and this worked wonders! I go to school in an intense, stressful environment but this is the first time my skin actually started clearing up. It didn't cause me to breakout at first like some products do before they work, this gave me immediate results I noticed!
I tried so many things for my acne. This is the only thing that REALLY works. It got rid of all the bumps I had all over my face! It doesnt really get rid of the big pimples thats really deep in the skin though so I just put neosporin on them at night and in the morning it's usually better. I have very sensitive skin too but I use this scrub twice a day, everyday. I will repurchase. I want to use this for the rest of my life.
I found something more moisturizing so I would probably be using that now. I now use the Pond's Luminous line. I already went through a few tubes already.
I bought this scrub because I wanted an more abrasive one than what I had home.
I don't know if it's the scrub or my new skincare routine or anything else but my skin really improve over the couple of weeks I've been using it.
I try to use it every 2 days, in the shower or on almost dry skin for a more «harsh» exfoliation.
All the small pimples I had on my chin are all gone! I'm very happy!
The only downside, I find this to be really hard to wash off!! Even if I rinsed it thoroughly, when I apply my tonic or serum, there is often a soapy residue..
But I still really appreciate this!
