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.

The scrub particles are too big and rough for the face, so I'm using it as a body scrub which is working well.

great scrub, quite grainy so if your not looking for a gentle scrub this is the one for you. I don't think its suited for dry skin, it tends to make your skin dry so apply some moisturizer after this. Makes skin very smooth, great before applying selftanning products

This is definitely a better facial scrub than what I've used in the past. I do like to use a good exfoliator however I make sure I only use this twice a week maxiumum as it's not a huge tub. It has a wonderful cleaning feeling and so far, I can say my skin does glow after use. Will continue to use however so far so good !

I wouldn't repurchase. It's good but nothing amazing. I would recommend getting this f you are looking for a good physical scrub.

It's a good scrub overall, i mean it really cleans your skin, but i didn't see any "brightening" effect or something very different from the other brands i've tried. It's ok, but not great. Also it really depends on your skin type. I think it would be good for oily skin, for my dry skin it didn't work so well

very good for my combination skin...a bit coarse so not for the most sensitive skin.

it feels really good. I used 3 times per week as specified by the directions and i think it made me break out. Could have been something else though. Anyway, i'll scale it back to once a week and see how it goes.

This product is too rough for my sensitive skin, so I have given it away to my husband who seems to be happy.
