Our Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Face Scrub helps unclog pores and clear blackheads. From America's No. 1 scrub brand*, duh. A derma‐tested, blackhead‐tackling scrub made with salicylic acid. It moderately exfoliates, helping to clear blackheads, and unclog pores, for a more even skin tone. It's also infused with olive leaf extract which the Egyptians saw as a symbol of heavenly power. And who'd argue with that? Our green tea leaves come from China and are processed in the traditional Chinese way. This involves heating them to stop oxidation so they stay that lovely vibrant green color. The goodness is then extracted by very gently by soaking them. It takes a little longer but we think it's worth it. Natural Ingredients Green Tea Extract Olive Leaf Extract Hydrated Silica Tell me more! This refreshing scrub is oil free, paraben free, dermatologist tested, and non-comedogenic (meaning won't clog pores), and has a moderate exfoliation level. It also contains 1% salicylic acid acne medication. How to use: Dispense scrub onto fingertips and massage onto damp skin. Spread in small circular motions to wake your skin's natural circulation. When you're done, rinse and glow! For best results, use 3-4 times a week. *Based on 52 week unit sales ending 7.30.16

I have three tubes going in my household always. Used it for years works great surprisingly with my sensitive skin. I use it daily over 30 tubes on average a year. Why in the world did they change the formula. I have no idea what I will use now. Clearly from all the reviews since the new formula everyone hates it. Hopefully they will see how customers are responding and change it back. I imagine their sales will drop or is dropping sharply. They will get everyone on one tube but after that no more. I actually returned 9 tubes I bought.
I SO miss the old formula, and have used it for years. The new formula is nothing like the original. The walnut shell is very harsh - it scratched my face on my first use. From the reviews it looks like I’m not the only one disappointed with the changes. Is it possible to purchase the original anywhere?

I previously users the oat scrub and I can say that this is better. It has finer granules and I felt that it’s not too harsh for my skin. I also like the smell, texture and consistency. I think this is good for regular use because it won’t be as harsh as regular scrub. I already used this for few days and I’m not getting reaction so that’s a great thing. Since every skin is unique, I don’t want to recommend this willy-nilly. Instead check the ingredients first. That being said, I’m happy with the product and I would include it in my regular skin regiment.
This doesn’t work. First of all, it’s very rough on the skin. After I washed it off the areas that I had scrubbed were all red. Second, it simply just doesn’t do anything for my skin. I used it twice daily and scrubbed FOREVER!! And then I would wash it off. I used it for almost a month and there was no difference what so ever. I struggle with blackheads on my chin, nose, and T-Zone. It’s very annoying having to cover up my face with cakey foundation every single day just to cover them up. And it’s probably not doing any good for the blackheads either. Very disappointed in this product and many others that I’ve used. It says on the bottle that it’s supposed to get rid of blackheads. It doesn’t do it’s job
There is no other product affordable and does what it claims it will do like this scrub. Even the hardest of blemishes and acne proned skin will look and feel better than before! It is not harsh on the face and is the "HOLY GRAIL" of all facial scrubs!
I use it 2 times a week and used for almost 2 month, I see no difference.
