When I first started using this product it worked well, but after a couple of days it started irritating my skin, well around the NOSE area! It was bad makeup wouldn't even cover it,. People would notice it! It was badddddd! Surely wouldn't buy or use this irritant again.
I quite like this scrub, it's not moisterising at all it's actually on the drying side. It's actually been better at reducing redness than reducing acne.
I will buy this product again. It's probably my favorite drugstore scrub.
i got clog pores on my chin area after using this.. it was terrible.. anyone with sensitive skin prone to acne dont use this..i have combination skin and my chin area is always very sensitive and i break out easily.. i will never use it again. if i can give 0 lippies i'll give it to this product ..
This is the second day ive been using this and all the little bumps on my forehead have reduced. Its smells really weird though. I will update
PS - I only reallllllllllly bought it because... its PINK
I have dry/sensitive skin/acne prone and it's awesome. I lovee the smell, the gentle beads, the foam, and the way it makes my skin feel super smooth afterwards. I use it probably at most 2x a week and it may be drying but it's not a problem if you moisturize.
it does a amazing job at waking you up becuase of the delicious smell. it's a nice invigorating, gentle scrub. acne wise, I don't know much but I love it for thoes reasons I mentioned :)
I started using this product to see if it was better than my older scrub but it just made my skin break out. It dry it out my skin and didn't clean deep enough. It smelt nice. It didn't work.
I've been on Proactiv for years and have been looking for something to replace it. I tried using this, and it worked really well for about a week, but then things took a turn for the worse. First, it SERIOUSLY dried out my skin. I have super duper oily skin and I live in a humid climate and my skin is never dry (even Proactiv old formula does not dry out my skin), but this made my skin so dry and red. Then by the third week of using it, I started getting acne breakouts around my temples. Ughhhh. I originally got this because it had the Allure Best whatever stamp on it. I don't know how this got the stamp of approval. Maybe my skin just didn't like it. :(
I decided that I'd use this face scrub for a change and I really wish I didn't. I can't say that it was absolutely horrible but I would not repurchase it. :( It made my skin SO SO SO SO dry and flakey. I have only been using it for about four days and my skin feels so asdnjweoendasodn. I've been mositurizing like craazzy. On the plus side, it does have a really nice smell and the beads are not too rough! Maybe if you used this product once or twice a week it'd be okay. I'll update you on that!
This thing made me break out!! It's a great exfoliator but it might be a little harsh for some people. I have no idea what happened with this, but i guess im allergic to something in it as it makes me break out. I know it's not salicylic acid because that helps my skin, but something in there just doesn't work with me. If only it did work i would probably love this product so I gave it 3 stars
*I have an extra Brand New 6.7 floz bottle of this. PLMK if anyone would like to swap for it or something cuz i need to get rid of it!
I use this product maybe once of twice a week. I normally will put on the Queen Helene Mint Julep mask and then wash it off using this scrub. This method works for getting rid of any whiteheads or small pimples. The scrub is pretty exfoliating. I do repurchase it often.
I only have two cons (minus one lippie). First of all, it's not that big of a deal...but the packaging is annoying. I really wish it was a pump. It's annoying to have to reach over and pick this up, then try to open the cap and squeeze it out when you just splashed your face with water. I end up dropping it/getting water everywhere.
But the worst thing about this is the scent! I have the regular face wash and it smells great. But this smells absolutely disgusting! It's like plastic-y or something. Definitely not grapefruit. I try so hard not to smell this when I'm washing my face. I don't know what's up with it, but they got the scent all wrong.
