Rated 1 out of 5 by from New and improved formula? Not really I have used this product for years and loved how my skin felt. You could truly and safely exfoliate with it but now this new formula is nothing more than face wash it’s not really a scrub. I will not continue to buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I miss the micro-beads I've been using this product for years and have loved it. I would stock up on it so I'd never run out. I just had to restock and realized immediately that the formula had changed. It no longer has that amazing scrub feel, I assume because they removed the micro-beads. My skin doesn't feel as soft or clean as it did previously. I'm going to have to find something new, which breaks my heart. Can't Neutrogena replace the micro-beads with some other natural, but effective scrub particle, like ground walnut shells or sugar or something similar like other brands have? Whatever is in there now isn't effective.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality stand-by scrub (WITHOUT microbeads) I just wanted to clarify, in response to the previous review about microbeads, that it actually says "Does not contain plastic microbeads" on the back of the product. Otherwise, I'm pleased with this scrub. I use it every morning before applying toner and daily moisturizer and my skin is soft and healthy-looking. It does dry my skin a bit, but my daily moisturizer takes care of that. It's not life-changing, and I still have issues with visible pores, but it's a quality product well worth the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Microbeads Recently bought this at cvs without reading the labels before going home unfortunately I returned it the next day because I saw the words microbeads on the back. I try my best to use products that have only natural exfoliants because it's less harm to the environment. Giving this product a poor rating because it's time to get rid of the plastics. If it's not good for the environment it's probably not good for my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING SCRUB but its disappearing! This is an amazing scrub that I have been using for years! Whats unfortunate is this product is disapearing from stores and I have to search for it a bit! Neutrogena also did the same thing with the Fight and Fade Rapid Clear Gel and the oil free acne wash cleansing cloths which were both amazing and I hate living without! I use to use the cleansing cloths, this scrub and then the gel and it was amazing! I pray they dont discontinue this scrub and start selling the cleansing cloths and the spot gel again! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Made my face clean and soft but my my acne worse I started using this product i don't get acne much i get acne about once a month but i decided to try this product and it made my skin clean and soft and took the oil away but in a bad way it made my skin extremely dry and caused redness and made me break out ALL over unless you have skin that isn't sensitive maybe you could try this product but if you have not sensitive skin you could try it out but in all it did not work for me it just made it worse

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been using this for years! I've used this product for several years and it's the only thing that works for me. It keeps acne at bay and if anything does pop up, it goes away quickly. It leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I live by this stuff I give 4 stars because it does dry out my skin, but all you have to do is put a moisturizer on straight after and you're fine. Otherwise this product is amazing for acne. I get any blemishes, I slap this on and they're gone the next day. It leaves me feeling really refreshed and clean as well. I definitely recommend it if you don't have sensitive skin.
