I've been looking for a great facial scrub for a LONG time. I've tried everything from typical drugstore brands to all natural/organic brands... I never found something worth purchasing twice. Many were ineffective and could hardly be described as "scrubs," while others broke out my sensitive skin (exactly the opposite of the effect I'm looking for!). I've been using baking soda, which is inexpensive, but messy and inconvenient at times. After trying this Acure scrub, I can't believe how much I love it! First of all, it does the job (no sparse "microbeads" that don't actually exfoliate). My skin feels velvety smooth after and looks fantastic, and you really only have to use it three times a week as per the instructions. My skin tone is much more even, and I've only used it a few times. I notice my makeup looks much more flawless than it did before (but, hey, with how great my skin looks, I might be able to use less makeup now!). Plus, you only have to use a little bit of product, which makes the higher price tag worth it for these results.

Not bad but I still prefer my beloved Alba Botanica's scrub since it's bigger, more affordable, contains salicylic acid and it has a gel like texture whereas this is quite dry and thick unless you mix it with water.

I find it very effective, although a bit drying. The smell is horrible. I decided to use it on my body, mostly legs ...far away from my nose!

If you have oily or otherwise "strong" skin, this is a product for you. But if you have sensitive skin, this is too harsh. It has sandy substanse, which almost peeled my skin off. Smell is quite strange, a bit sea-ish. I use it as body scrub.

It smells like seaweed, the scrubs are too rough and hard for my face, so i use it as a body scrub only.

grains are too rough for the face and better suited to the body, where I have been using it instead. I'm not a fan of the smell, either, but it's not intolerable.

The scrub liquid was very clumpy. Made a mess in my sink while using it.

I liked this enough to repurchase. It's very scrubby. Smells herbal. I don't know about spot removing, but I only like it for the texture. EDIT: I'm beginning to notice that whenever I use this, my skin will start flaking and gets really dry after.

The men use it in the house, it seems to lessen the oil on the face but it looks disgusting coming out of the tube. I am not sure about using it on myself
