Very effective and smells AMAZING! I love this acne scrub! But you don't want to use this every day though. Every other day at most. Also, don't scrub too hard, just use it gently and it will get the job done. I have noticed a huge improvement in my acne since starting using this 3 months ago. On the days I don't use this I use St Ives Chamomile soap. This seems to be the perfect combo for me, and now my acne is the best is has been in the past 12 years.
I have been using this for about 3 months now and I ended up with more acne every single time. It never worked. I have used it constantly and it is almost gone now and not once this is get out my acne that it created itself. The only thing it did was to keep the acne there and it made sure it would never leave my skin and the acne felt so painful. It was so bad oh my god. I was so surprised. It was so excited about this product and it disappointed me BIG TIME. I really thought it would work on me. I cannot believe it because I would always hear about the Neutrogena products in commercials so I thought the product would be good. I am sooo sad.
I am so disappointed with this product. I have been using Neutrogena for years and I have bounced around to different types of washes and cleansers, never having a problem. LOVED neutrogena. I try this one and it’s like I have more acne then ever before. I did not change my diet, I did not have any major life changes, nothing that would cause excessive hormone levels/causes for sudden breakouts. Have been using for a month and will not buy again.

I bought this because no one carries the normal soap I use anymore. The smell is nice, it doesn't dry out my skin bit after only 2 days of using it I got huge cystic acne and some raised spots next to my mouth. It's gonna take a week to fix what 2 days of using this ruined. Would not recommend
