Absolutely a nightmare. I have oily, acne-prone skin. I really wanted to love this product, I was praying it would be the one to finally clear my skin. However, I can honestly say that my skin condition tripled in severity. I use to only have acne on one of my cheeks and on my forehead. Now I have horrible, red acne on both of my cheeks and my forehead. However, worst of all since I started using this product, is that I wake up to new whiteheads everyday that just sit in the middle of my pronounced post-acne scars. Please do not waste your money.

I have sensitive skin, and I wanted something exfoliating that wouldn't dry out my skin. After purchasing this scrub at Target for $9.99, I had finally found my new favorite exfoliator! It's great for mild breakouts and doesn't leave my skin dry and red afterwards like most exfoliating scrubs. Fair price. More than I'd normally spend on skincare but it's worth it!

I got this in the Yes to Tomatoes 3-Step Acne Regimen Bundle for about $20 & I'm in love! I've suffered with very oily acne prone skin for the last 5+ years and I've tried so many things with no avail, until now!
I'm 15 weeks pregnant & have recently switched all of my body products to as natural, organic, and gentle as I can find. I first tried the Cetaphil cleanser for about a month but it did nothing for my acne, redness, and oil. In fact I saw a very noticeable increase in the size of my pores!
I've been using this Yes to Tomatoes bundle for just under two weeks and my skin has dramatically changed for the better. I had* an overly red face similar to that of rosacea but this has reduced it significantly. My pores are shrinking and the large/painful breakouts have stopped! Only wish I'd found this years ago!
Comments on this being Step 1 of the bundle:
Tip: Make sure to squeeze very gently or you'll get more product than you need!

Alright, so I have fair, sensitive, VERY ACNE prone skin. This past couple months have been hellish for me, battling acne, breakout after breakout. The most recent cleanser I tried was loreal go 360 anti breakout cleanser. I tried to think back to the time when I even had remotely good skin before I moved to the east coast, and I was using the loreal 360 exfoliating one with some general BP. I figured the anti breakout would would as good if not better. Wrong! I broke out in these disgusting (pardon me) huge puss filled pimples ev-er-y-where. Gross. This being one of the only drugstore cleansers/scrubs I haven't tried, I picked it up the day before yesterday. I also picked up the GEL cleanser (not the other smaller one. It says "gel acne" on it.) I've been using burts bees sensitive makeup removing cloths before I get in the shower, then the Y2T gel cleanser, and a little of this scrub. I think I'll alternate days with this scrub. ALREADY my skin has cleared significantly! Scars from previous breakouts are already disappearing. I already have more self esteem. I donr dread looking in rhe mirror anymore. This scrub isn't too abrasive, but is "scrubby" enough! My sensitive skin doesn't feel red or raw. In fact, it feels SOOTHED. After shower, i slap on some burts bees sensitive daily moisturizer, and spot treat with Equates Spot BP. AMAZING! Update to follow.

Ive seen this in drugstores for years and the line has alwayd intrigued me.. but im cheap, so theres no way id pay more than 6or 7 bucks for something like this. I got lucky. I found it for 3 at five and below and finally got to try it. I am impressed! I just had a bad experience with a different acne scrub and was a litle weary. My favorite thing about it was that even though my face has been so dry this wintet, i didnt even get tightening or dryness after. Of course, i used moisterizer anyway, but for the first time in a while it didnt hurt not to.
I dont think the smell is bad. I think ppl have it in their mind that its tomato so thats what they smell. My only issue has been its hard to rinse off completely when not in shower. Im hoping overtime its going to help the blotchy-ness and old scars thats are so noticeable on my fair skin.

This has to be the worst cleanser I have ever used. Prior to buying this product, I had high hopes for it since it claimed to be natural and it contain tomato extract which is wonderful for the skin, especially acne-prone skin.
Upon application, my face immediately felt like it was burning. After washing it off with water, I noticed my face got really red and puffy. I decided to give it another shot and use it for the rest of the week but to my dismay, it just didn't work. My face actually broke out even more and my pores were very visible. My face also felt very rough. This product was just way to harsh for my sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin.
I brought it about a year ago and it is still in my bathroom cabinet; I just don't want to throw it away since it was not on the cheap side.
I do not recommend this cleanser and I would never be buying it again.

After running out of my backup facial cleanser, I stopped by Whole Foods to see what kind of 'natural' products were cheap (but effective) enough to warrant an experiment. Ironically, it was after going through the various reviews on Makeup Alley that I decided the pore scrub was worth a shot...
And it turned out rather horrendous. The first night wasn't so bad--massaged gently, no visible reddening or burning, no film on the skin (and it may be my inability to detect subtle odors, but I didn't notice any 'odd smells' from the scrub). I have pretty severe acne (two bouts of Accutane, been fighting it with all sorts of OTC/prescriptions for over ten years with varying degrees of success), acne that resisted bottles of BP labeled '10%.' A little salicylic acid could only help (or do nothing, since I had to bump myself to BP, then oral antibiotics and prescriptions topicals after salicylic acid proved useless)...
Inconclusive. The second day, I noticed some white 'film' spotting one cheek while I was rinsing; it didn't wipe off with my fingers, but I did manage to wipe it off with a towel. Dead skin flaking off? Not sure what it was.
Third day, I started to feel the effects of dry skin.
Literally the fourth day after using the scrub (as advised on the bottle), my skin has turned into Death Valley. I have oily-combination type skin, very sensitive and a pain to babysit. While no new pimples (that I'm aware of) popped up to make things worse (hopefully), no amount of moisturizer can keep my skin from flaking off. It's been about three days since I stopped using the scrub and resorted back to a combination of my primary cleanser (Neutrogena's Visibly Even Foaming Cleanser) and hastily made milk/honey facial cleansers and honey/cinnamon/nutmeg facial masks.
The area around my mouth (and nose) is still too taut, red and flaky, which makes it uncomfortable to talk (much less open my mouth more than an inch to eat, for heaven's sake), but the area around my eyes has healed somewhat.
I'm not entirely sure to the source of the healing, and it actually pains me to think of throwing away the Yes to Tomatoes scrub (I'm not exactly a wealthy gal, living paycheck-to-paycheck)--but I suppose there was a reason why they were on sale for $8.99. (Only used six-seven times, my goodness... it's practically still full. Any takers?)
Other users seem to have had a fairly good experience with the scrub, however, so it might just be my skin that reacted extremely poorly to the acne-fighting ingredients. At the very least, I haven't broken out even more than the usual; the salicylic acid was just too much for my apparently even-more-sensitive-than-sensitive skin.
Going to keep using a raw-honey facial until I find something a little more suitable for me! (Be it completely au naturel.)

I love this <33333 It's gentle enough to be used everyday but it doesn't dry out your skin! The best of all it does help minimize the size of my pores for about $10.The texture feels like a normal exfoliater and this has a very light scent to me. If you haven't tried this stuff you really need too!

Im going to start off by saying most of us are trying to get on the "all natural beauty train" so thats why i even gave this product a chance, price wise its great i believe it was 8.99 at target in NJ, the plus to the scrub is that it worked very well for my sensitive skin, i didn't get red or irritated, my face felt very clean and i did see some clear up, (when i break out i usually do on my right cheek :(,,, the down fall is it will dry you out, and the smell isn't the greatest, i would definitely suggest moisturizing afterwards, overall its worth a try, i would purchase again unless i find something better then i definitely would kick it to the curb.
