Compared to Botanical Buffing Beads?
Does this have the same texture of exfoliating beads as the PTR Botanical Buffing Beads (the blue one)?
I have thin, pale, sensitive, acne-prone skin, and the Botanical Buffing Beads is the ONLY scrub I can use on my skin regularly, as it doesn't seem to "scratch" the skin like so many others do, but it's sold out everywhere.
If they're basically the same scrub texture-wise but with the added glycolic and salicylic acids, I'd be willing to give it a try.

on Anti-Aging Buffing Beads For Face and Body
Honestly I don't know. I never tried the "blue one" However, if you have acne prone skin especially on your body its not the intensity of beads you should be looking for. If I were you I would buy a body scrub brush. The brush helps exfoliate your skin and gets deeper into the pores. I have only used this orange PTR Anti-Aging Buffing Beads For Face and Body because it was the only body wash I actually saw results. I recommend only dampening the skin while applying the scrub. If you are completely soaked the water will just wash it away and the ingredients won't have time to work its magic (2-3minutes) then wash it off. Remember the gunk in your pores are hydrophobic and the body wash is hydrophilic this is why you shouldn't have the water running while you bath.
While I have not used the blue cleanser I also have thin, fair, sensitive skin, with some whiteheads and love this cleanser. It is very gentle yet a great exfoliating cleanser! Love it!
