I give this product a "2" because it simply did not eliminate any blackheads. This scrub did not get rid of my blackheads nor did it prevent any new ones. However, I do seem to like it well enough as an exfoliating scrub. I've found it to keep my dry skin to a minimum in the winter. Also, I think the scrubbing beads are a very good consistency.
I've been looking for a good scrub for a long time... and I think I've finally settled on this. I spent a good amount of time in the aisle looking at them and found this one on the second try... it works great on my acne prone skin. I tried Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Scrub first and it was okay... I like this one better because the scrub granules are more "scrubby", sort of like sugar, whereas the Clean & Clear "scrubbies" are more like microbeads. I want something that will scrub! Neither of the products are really "blackhead clearing"... I think the only thing that will really get rid of blackheads is regular facials! Anyway! This scrub is a great texture, nice smell (very faint) and lathers nicely. I will definitely purchase it again when I run out. Great Value for the money on this product! I'll update in a few weeks with more details.

i have combo skin, and my t-zone gets really oily & prone to breakouts in the summer. this cleanser is really helping w/ the breakouts without stripping my dry spots of moisture. for the price, this product really delivers.
What a piece of garbage. Mediocre exfoliator, it did absolutely nothing to my blackheads.
I just bought this product a few days ago, but I have to say that it already did a good job on my skin!
Its very gentle and helps me cleaning my skin and so far it has also been helping reducing my blackheads!
I'm sure whether its the same one in other countries but in Australia, its from the Skin Clearing range. Anyways, this is gentle enough to be used twice a day, which I do as my everyday cleanser. Its great if you are prone to flakies and have sensitive skin that dries out easily. I'm not too sure about it eliminating blackheads but my skin feels much smoother and clean after use.
I found this scrub too drying for the winter, but in the summer -- especially if used with an oil-free moisturizer -- it's a lovely way to get a fresh, flushed, healthy-looking face. Not sure it did much for my blackheads, but then they're sort of immovable anyway; like my sins, they'll probably be with me forever no matter what I do.
I've been using this for quite some time and it does seem to exfoliate my skin. My skin feels a bit smooth afterwards but it doesn't do anything with helping problem skin. It's drying for me and the texture feels harsh even though it's not that gritty.
If it works that way, I might as well buy a regular face scrub from another brand and one that smells better too because I really don't like the scent. continued >>
This product works really well. It smells great and you only need a small amount, so the tube will last for a while. Definitely worth the money.
I really love this scrub. I've started using it every night and it's wondeful. It takes off any remnants of face make-up that are leftover, exfoliates my skin, and medicates it too. The scrub leaves my skin feeling silkly, smooth, and clean. I have dry skin and I think that this even helps to hydrate it as well. Definitely a repurchase.
UPDATE: I changed my rating to a 2 because after continued use it gave me loads of dry patches that were hard to get rid of.
