Should I buy this or the Blemish Buffing Beads?
I have combination skin. My cheeks are completely clear and it's my T-zone that gives me problems. I don't have severe acne but it's not clear or mild either. I went to the spa and the "facialist" told me that using the Blemish Buffing Beads in just my T-zone area would be good for my skin - using it for the rest of my face would be too drying. So I was wondering, should I get the Blemish Buffing Beads for my T-zone or get this product and use it all over my face? Are the Botanical Buffing Beads harsh or bad for acne-prone skin?

on Botanical Buffing Beads
You would benefit from this product. I have found that I use it where my skin needs it. In a couple of days your skin will be clear.

No, it's not harsh. I prefer the Botanical Buffing Beads to the Blemish Beads - the Blemish one didn't seem as effective for me, and the Botanical left my skin feeling nicer. I threw out my travel sized Blemish Beads after giving them a shot. If it's available, purchase a kit that offers both (in travel sizes) so you can judge for yourself!
I have sensitive skin/rosacea and use this product am and pm on my entire face with special attention to my chin where my whiteheads are - it has not irritated my skin at all so I think you should give it a try!

I have dry skin on my checks and my T zone is oily not so oily that a blotting paper will pick up any oils but i use it throughout my entire face and I have no issues. I also tend to have a free blemishes on my forehead since it is my T zone and my bangs graze it. So by all means definitely use it on your entire face.

I am not familiar with the buffing beads. However this product is gently but does stimulate the removal of dead skin all over your body..
I apologize I cannot answer your question

I have acne-prone skin that is combination as well. I chose the bontanical buffing beads instead of the blemish beads b/c acne is caused by a mix of dead skin and sebum in the poresl; exfoliation is the key! Plus, the bontanical beads are more natural and are use natural healing ingredients to buff and moisturize the skin. It works well for me... I hope it works well for you too!

I don't think is a harsh product, I have fairly sensitive skin and this didn't cause any irritation, unlike other exfoliants I tried.
I would encourage you to try this before the other product, although they are two different things and you may end up needing both.

I use the "blue stuff" I also have combination skin, some acne, and oily T-zone. I use this product every day all over my face and I love it. It is not drying at all. I have use this same product, but i think it is the yellow one that is for acne skin and it is too drying. Blue stuff...its wonderful and well worth the money. I suggest you give it a shot.

What I would do is get the botanical buffing beads for all over, and then find a separate product for your t-zone. To me, it seems like a waste of money to have to get two seperate scrubs in the full sized bottles...
