    I do love this product. i have oily and senstive skin, this product does take care of the oily part, but is drying my skin out. it is a bit harsh on my skin, but no break outs just drying my skin. i will have to find a mild version.

    As I'm turning 30 very soon, I realized it was time to start taking my skin care a bit more seriously. I dutifully went out and bought natural scrubs, cleanser and moisturizers, as well as night cream and eye cream. The first scrub that I bought was from the Say Yes To...line. The exfoliating particles in that product are huge (bamboo), and although the product has Salicylic Acid, it didn't seem to do much. Also, although the scent wasn't awful, it wasn't something terribly pleasant either--sort of a "earthy" smell.

    For about a quarter of the price per ounce, ACNEdote scrub has perfectly-sized exfoliating particles, the addition of witch hazel extract (which surprisingly, has made a much bigger difference than I would have thought) and a nice foaming action. For an added bonus, the bergamot scent is lovely (not sure where people are finding a peppermint scented version).

    My skin is smoother and my acne (primarily face and back) is starting to clear up in the first week. I will definitely buy this again.

    I've been looking for a good exfoliating face wash since proactive just gets to be so expensive. Well let me say this product does just as well if not better!! I have a hard time finding something for acne as well as something exfoliating which is very important for me. My skin needs the exfoliation or else my acne gets real bad. Usually I don't have positive results with salicylic acid but this is Awsome! Love this line doesn't have harsh chemicals which I'm sensitive to and leaves my face feeling so clean I don't even want to put anything on. Don't stop making this product line ever. But do try coming up with an SPF.

    I bought this product two weeks ago and have held off giving a review until I really saw results. I have to say that my skin is clearer right now than it has ever been in my adult life. I never really broke out as a teenager but since my early 20's my skin has been a constant issue. It's sensitive, it's oily, and prone to redness and acne so bad that sometimes it literally hurt to touch my skin. Using this product, in combination with plain old Badger Balm face oil as a moisturizer has completely cleared my skin in a matter of weeks, as in I have zero blemishes left. In the past seven years I have tried EVERYTHING, and this is the only thing that has worked for me. It smells good, is non-irritating to my sensitive skin, isn't drying, and it works. I would recommend this product to anyone dealing with acne.

    My seasonal job involves working outside in the hot, humid weather for hours and as a result I sometimes get breakouts on my back, chest, etc. I am trying to replace my skincare and bathing items with all natural products, so I decided to try this. It's great! I was a bit alarmed that it was dark brown, but it smells and feels nice, and seems to be making a difference. If you use it in the bathtub it does sometime leave bits of the exfoliating grains behind after draining the tub - but it was a telltale giveaway that my fiancee had been using it too!

    For over a year I have been struggling with painful and emotionally debilitating acne. It was SIGNIFICANTLY worse than what I had at 13. It seriously wrecked my confidence and it was incredibly painful. I tried everything...even $60 "miracle" serum. I was at Whole Foods picking up some scrub and they were out of the one I usually get. I was desperate so tried this because it was on sale. I used it for ONE day and saw a difference. My skin hasn't looked this good in years. Since I started using it, I have had very few zits...I didn't even get a break out during 'my time of the month'. I feel amazing! I feel like a brand new me!

    i'm 26 years old and i have tried every product you can imagine since i was 12 (including proactiv). this line of acnedote products is amazing. i use the astringent and lotion as well and have never been happier. besides completely getting rid of my acne it helps reduce redness and heal my scars and my skin tone is more even!

    I've struggled with light to moderate acne for about twelve years. I've seen dermatologists, taken prescriptions, applied ointments, and I've used just about every drug store product as well as Proactiv, and after none of those worked, I finally decided to try something natural. I am so thankful I did! AcneDote's Face and Body Scrub is absolutely amazing. I felt a significant difference in my skin on day one, and started seeing huge results after just three days. Combined with diluted tea tree oil as my toner, this will become part of my regular wash routine for life! Thank you!

    Lathers up great, fine particles in scrub are not too gentle and not too harsh, just right. Nice peppermint smell, doesn't overdry your skin. I was using Neutrogena clear body scrub with a washcloth. The Neutrogena body scrub was too harsh and made my skin break out. I use the Alba scrub on my chest and back and it works great. I also use a 10% benzoyl peroxide preparation afterwards if I need it. Overall a great product. THANKS ALBA!

    I bought this product today after reading all of the rave reviews, and I just used it for the first time... I really am so impressed! I immediately noticed that my skin felt softer and looked more vibrant with less redness. Since then my pores look smaller and my face just looks better. Can't wait to see what will happen with continued use. Best part -- it's cruelty free! :D

    I've suffered with acne on my back for over a decade. Washes and creams prescribed by dermatologists never worked. I resigned myself to always choosing tops that offered good back coverage. However, I began using this product about 3 months ago and have seen a tremendous improvement. I notice that if I go a few days without it, the pimples start to show again. This scrub will definitely remain a product in my beauty routine. I just started using it on my face, too, so I will see how that goes. Hopefully, it has the same effect! Love this stuff!!

    I've always had acne problems on my combination skin and this works wonders on my face! It feels absolutely amazing to finally have clear skin. After I wash my face it feels refreshed and completely clean. I like to put a dollop of it into my palm and run some warm water over it, and then rub my hands together so it gets sudsy like soap, and then put it on my face - that helps so it doesn't feel like I'm scrubbing my face. It's a good price for the amount you get in the bottle and it doesn't test on animals = awesome! Thank you!!!

    I'm 23 years old and have suffered from acne for years. I tried everything from antibiotics prescribed by a dermatologist to trying every face wash on the shelf, I never had results with either, until I started using this face wash. I love the texture beads in it, it's how I know the dirt and grim are being cleaned out from my pores. I use this product on my back and saw results the next day. I recommend this product to every one I know with acne and will keep buying it as long as it keeps working!

    This is the best stuff I have ever tried. I have really oily skin and have tried everything for acne. I have been having breakouts lately not large one but the acne are the large red bumps that hurt and never come to a head. I used this stuff and within 48 hours my face was clear. I have never been more happy with a product. I was scared at first because most scrubs make my face breakout worse but it didn't. It is not that expensive compared to other name brand acne treatments and it works better also!!! I would give it my 110% recommendation for anyone to try it.

    I've been dealing with mild facial acne since I can remember. I've tried so many different acne products and none of them would work. I got fed up with my last trial of products not working and I saw this in Walmart and decided to give it a try and I'm so glad I did! I use the scrub, astringent and the lotion. It's cleared up my acne and I don't break out as much as I normally did. I still break out occasionally but not nearly as bad as I used to. i love how clean my face feels after I wash it too. Give it a try!

    From the first day, I loved it. Though it did look weird and ewwy at first but beauty isn't always beautiful, right. It made my skin feel clean and soft and not all red and ew. It smelled nice and felt like it was working. It did, indeed, work. It got most, if not all, the acne gone. I totally love it and want more soon. I truly think people should buy it. I mean it doesn't cost tons and its worth the try and money. Like seriously.. Get. It.

    I can't say enough nice things about this. This is the first time I have used a facial cleanser that was all natural and I love it! It leaves my skin feeling clean and it smell great. I use this in combination with a prescription from my dermatologist and for the most part it keeps the acne at bay. I will never go back to a non-natural cleanser. Thanks Alba!

    I use this product once daily (at night) to exfoliate and cleanse, alternating with another gentle cleanser to avoid abrasion. It works for me; scrubbing away the dead, oily skin cells and treating the acne at the same time. It's a staple for me now.

    I LOVE this scrub! I was looking for a good facial and body scrub and tried using this acne line 4 days ago. I use the cream wash in the morning and the scrub at night, so far so good! It exfoliates like there is no tomorrow! Very gentle but effective! My skin feels softer, smoother, and the skin tone has improved as well! As I stated in a review for the cream wash, I have had acne since I was about 14 and am 26 now so finally finding a product that gives me such quick results, 4 days, is amazing. Not to mention the fact that it is natural, cruelty free, and 100% vegetarian! I could not ask for more. I also use this on my back and arms and it seems to be working. I cannot wait to see how much improvement I get in 8 days! I look forward to coming home at night, after wearing makeup all day, and gently scrubbing away the day's dirt from my face with this scrub, LOVE IT!

    I've been waiting and waiting for a natural personal care company to make a body cleanser similar to Neutrogena's so we could have the benefits without the crud! And this is it! It smells and feels awesome. While it certainly hasn't cured anything overnight, I've noticed a significant decrease in breakouts on my back and chest. I also use this on my face in the shower, and while after a few weeks my breakouts haven't completely stopped, on my face too they have lessened considerably. Not to mention, the general look of my complexion is better is so much better. I will never go without this stuff again, as long is it continues to be offered!

    A friend at camp had some, and I used a little. WOW! It was amazing! I saw improvement within a few hours! Unfortunantly, camp ended, and I forgot about it. A few months later in the store, I saw it and remembered how good it was. I bought it, and have been using it ever since. It feels sooooo good going on, and it smells pretty good too :) I use it a few times a week on my face and back, and it's working wonders! I'd reccomend this to anyone suffering from acne! (BTW, if you're looking for it in stores, Target and Walmart both carry it, but Walmart is $2 cheaper!!!)
