First off, I have very oily/acne prone skin. It's not really sensitive, but I find that products for sensitive skin work a bit better for me - but it's not necessary to have this label. I love this because it minimizes the oily shine that I see at the end of the day. Of course, with oily skin, it will almost always be shiny, no matter what I do. However, it keeps my face nice - reduces redness, increases softness - and I don't think I will use another moisturizer again, that's how good it is! A little goes a long way and it's relatively cheap - about $12 at Walmart. I recommend this product to everybody, really.

Not too shabby!
First off, I have oily/acne prone skin that is really rough with blackheads everywhere. I use this in my daily regimen (with the Green Tea Gel Cleanser at night) and I have seen a real improvement in my skin. I know, for me, there is no miracle cure to end acne, but it's as close as it will get with this scrub. I don't have particularly sensitive skin, so the beads in this don't irritate my skin too often - only when I press/scrub too hard will my face be a bit red. It is definitely more mild than the Apricot Scrub. The only thing I don't like is that fact that this scrub tends to leave "residue" behind, which is why I was in the shower to ensure it is all gone. I don't know how to describe it, but it leaves a kind of sand-like residue that can be a bit gross, especially when I go to put my moisturizer on afterward. This doesn't try out my face and it leaves it soft and radiant. If you're similar to me, I suggest you try this out! I don't know how the product works by itself because, like I said, I use it in conjunction with the gel cleanser (I have a review on that one, too). I definitely recommend it (it's also cheap - $5 at Target, $6 at Walgreens) and it seems to last forever.

I love it!
Well, I have very oily/acne prone skin and the Green Tea Scrub worked very nicely, so I was undoubtedly going to try this. It really cleans my face without leaving it dry or tight. I've been using this in conjunction with the scrub (in the morning) and this cleanser in the evening and I have seen an amazing difference in my skin appearance. The redness is almost gone and the salicylic acid does a good job of keeping blackheads at bay. I know a lot of people don't like this product, but I love it! The only downfall is that is contains SLS and, therefore, burns a bit when I get some in my eye. If you have oily (all over) or acne prone skin, I really suggest you try this. I don't know how well it works by itself, though. The scrub is something else I love, and you can see that I did a review of that product, too. P.S. It smells delicious!
