It made me break out the next hour. Well, the feel of this scrub is well enough for me to like it, but I don't like bumps and zits all over my face.
It's like any other cleanser-- it does the job, but I didn't think the exfoliating beads did that much for me. it has a decent scent. It didn't make my skin clearer overall; my acne stayed about the same.I wouldn't repurchase, but not because it's a bad cleanser... I just want to see if there are better ones out there.
I like this scrub better than the other Neutrogena scrub I had used for a while. It tingles nice from the salicylic acid, doesn't dry the face and smells/feels i dunno .. fresh.
UPDATE: i'm pretty sure this is the culprit that has clogged up my face again ... shame, cause I like the tingling feeling and the scrubbies are nice and soft, non-abrasive. If you're not prone to clogged pores and can usually tolerate creamy textures, give 'er a try.
Im not a fan of Neutrogena as most product I buy from them never seems to agree with my skin, but having very good experience with the 3in1 hydrating acne treatment from the same line, I just had to try it. Im so glad I did because it gave good result. I don't particularly like the other neutrogena line, but the acne stress control line are amazing. I have somewhat oily acne prone skin and and this product seem to calm my skin and really fights hard against those pesky blemishes, within 2 days, pimples are smaller,dry and flakes off without leaving any dark marks.I love the way this feels on my face, it has a nice mild cucumber melon like scent,and the beads really helps exfoliate without overdrying my skin. I love using this in the shower the most because I like to leave it on my face for 3 minutes and I love the tingly cooling feeling it gives,and when I wash it off, I can really feel my face super clean. I also use this on my back where im starting to develop bumps and it has done miracles there too, makes my skin smooth and clean. I will definitely be buying this product again...my HG scrub..yayyy=)
I don't use this product anymore on my face because I barely break out now but I still do use this on my back 3 times a week in the shower and its still amazing=)
I really do like this scrub. It feels gentle on my face, and the scent is really nice and light. After I wash my face, my skin doesn't feel tight or dry, it just feels soft and clean, something that seems to be impossible for several cleansers to accomplish with my skin. With other scrubs (the Olay one to be specific) I feel like there aren't enough of the little beads in the product to really call it a "scrub," but this one has enough and you can really tell the difference. This keeps my skin clean, gets rid of zits, and I love the smell. No downside for me. Will repurchase
Loved the refreshing cucumber scent and it was nice enough while it lasted. Didn't notice much of a difference in my acne however so wouldn't buy again.
I really liked this products. I don't have terrible acne just the occasional black head or the dreaded stress zit. I'm almost done with this bottle and I've seen a marked difference my skin its smoother and my zits don't last as long and it does scrub away dead skin though it doesn't feel like it does. If your looking for something to get through the last bit of the "pimple teenage-young adult" phase i definitely recommend this.
I don't have much acne .but this product works like wonder my face feels so smooth n fresh after using it. It does help keep my acne in control. Overall great product and will buy again.
Worked well for a couple weeks and then stopped working altogether. I' gone through three containers. It might be ok for temporary usage, but over time my face either became immune or it irritated me.
I wanted to review this scrub after I finished the whole tube. I have tried many drugstore scrubs from St. Ives, Olay, L'Oreal, Clean and Clear, etc. I found this scrub to have the most effect on my skin.
Background on my skin-combination (oily Tzone) with whiteheads/blackheads clogged pores on Tzone. I don't have cystic acne so I can't tell what this scrub would do.
I use scrubs to help keep my skin from clogging and this product has done a decent job. It smells good also. It has shrunken my pores. I like it and probably will definitely repurchase. It didn't do much as far as getting rid of my blackheads/whiteheads, those I have to manually remove.
****People with blackheads/whiteheads, if you want to have clear skin, I found that the fastest and most effective way is manually extracting it. I use to have seriously a forehead COVERED in blackheads, and after persistently extracting for months, I am very close to having clear skin.
