Wow, a lot of negative reviews on this one o_O I actually quite like this product!! Lemme tell you why:

I have been suffering from acne since about 2006. I always had quite a few spots on my face at a time.. sometimes my acne would calm down, but it would ALWAYS flare up again later.....
About a month ago, I looked at my face and wanted to scream. I had just put BB cream on, but you could still see I had cystic acne here, cystic acne there, peeling skin and even worse, my nose area was RAVAGED by blackheads >____<"

I went out and bought this scrub 2 wks ago. My immediate reaction when I first used it was: "WOW- my skin is so soft!" I feel it exfoliates my skin quite well and most importantly, I dont think it breaks me out (*ahem Simple/ Clearasil/ Johnsons*)
I took off a lippy cus I'm not too sure it actually does its job: clearing blackheads... I had to manually extract mine by running a bobbypin down my nose after a long shower... but they havent come back with this scrub and Dermalogica essential solution =D Also the beads are soo pesky.. at school I'll find one on my hairline but then again, thats my fault... =/

All in all this is a great product for people who have moderate acne and sensitive skin. It doesn't 'work from Day 1' as it advertises but it has softened my skin, faded some of my acne scars and kept away the blackheads ^o^ If you've got this and it doesnt work, its probably cus your blackheads are embedded too deeply in your pores. Extract them and use this... you should see results!
Now I can look at my skin and be happy its on the road to recovery *fingers crossed* ^______^

EDIT: Lowered to 2 lippies because the positive effects on my skin reduced over time. My skin was no longer getting better (it wasn't exactly getting worse either) but still the blackheads were there so for me, the scrub became kind of an empty product with only temporary positive effects
