Only been using a few weeks and sometimes I forget to do it twice a day but it has definitely reduced my spots. I have suffered with pimples over my face for years and very oily skin and I can see an improvement already. So glad I brought this product.

AVOID - BURNED MY SKIN1
If I could give negative stars I would - I have never regret buying a cosmetic product as much as I do this one. Thinking the spot-proofing range would be a good choice after having a handful of breakouts I bought this along with the 2-in-1 mask and the moisturiser. I used this scrub a total of THREE times, non-consecutively. On the third time my face felt like it was burning and I rinsed it off to find my whole face covered in tiny little bumps. The next morning these had developed in to what felt like hundreds of tiny little blisters, primarily on my cheeks. By day 2 these had become very red and inflamed, some developing into pus-filled spots. On day three my skin was so sore I couldn’t bear to touch it, even when washing it. It’s day 4 now and it’s still no better. It honestly makes me want to cry, my skin has NEVER been this bad and I am well beyond the teenage years of acne. I genuinely don’t know how to undo what this wash has done to my face, I’m trying dermatitis creams and mild (NOT Neutrogena) cleansers to try and help clear it up but it’s absolutely ruined my skin. I’m devastated. I don’t have sensitive skin either (not that it matters, this is supposed to be for sensitive skin) but lord help the person with sensitive skin that tries this stuff. I may as well have washed my face in paint stripper.

DO NOT BUY THIS!!!1
This product has burnt my skin. My face is flaky, bumpy, red and sore after using this product a handful of times. Avoid!!! I don't have sensitive skin and have never used anything that has damaged my skin so badly.Report this review
BLISTERED MY SKIN. AVOID.1
It says its suitable for sensitive skin however I fail to see how that is as this blistered my skin. I don't have sensitive skin (it's very oily) and it made it tight, dry, itchy, swollen and now I have tiny blisters all over my face. It feels like my face is burning. What on earth have you put in this? I've never had dry skin in my life, thanks to this it's turned to the Sahara Desert.Report this review
This is not for sensitive skin!1
I have been breaking out the last couple of months and have tried all different types of products to help clear up my skin. After using this once I had woken up with a rash on my neck ( didn't think it was anything to do with the product ) I used it again and woke up with red, blotchy and itchy skin. That night I smothered my face / neck in Sudocrem! This product is not for sensitive skin! Would not recommend!Report this review
THIS IS AMAZING!!! stopped breakouts and my skin still isnt perfect but WAY better... thoroughly recomend if your skin isnt overly sensitive!Report this review
Awful product! If I could rate 0 I would!! Avoid!!1
I bought this scrub last week for my daughter who suffers with bad skin, I used it myself one night and woke up the next morning with what looks like burnt skin. My face is so sore, cracked, red and bumpy, with white little pus looking spots. I have never used anything so awful. I’ve used many products over the years and never had this kind of reaction, it’s been 3 days now and still so sore, red, bumpy and flakey. Absolutely terrible product that would strip paint from a wall it’s so strong!Report this review
Swollen and dry face!1
I bought this product last week as I had a breakout and my spots werent shifting. I used once at night and the next day my skin was a bit dry but the spots started to go. I used again the next day only on the breakout area and woke to swollen eyes and face! Plus my skin was so dry it felt like it was splitting. I didnt use the scrub anymore but since then my skin is terrible and its been at least 4 days. I have even comd out in even more spots. Will not use again!Report this review
I don’t usually take the time to write reviews but this product is just horrible. It’s overly drying and as a result has made me breakout in dark red painful acne, something I haven’t had for a long time. It’s really annoying seeing as I had just gotten my skin to a good place and now all my progress has been ruined. Please if you want to try this scrub patch test it and ensure that it’s right for you!Report this review
Awful - SWOLLEN FACE!!1
I used this facial scrub once and the next day woke up to really dry skin, thought nothing more of it but then the next day I woke up my face was completely swollen, red and sore. Since the swelling has come down my skin has been so dry and flaky (I usually have very oily skin) and have come out with a lot of spots! Would completely avoid this as does not do what it claims to. Very disappointed with this product and the brand, will be not using any of their products again.Report this review
