I started using this product after I bought it in stores and when I woke up the next day my acne was literally gone! It left my skin skin feeling fresh and it felt like my face could breath! I am so happy I finally found an acne product that works! Since it is a scrub, it should be followed with a lotion so no dryness occurs. I would recommend the oil-free acne lotion from the same brand because it makes my skin feel velvety soft.
