I know that it has beads in it. I might have chemical exfoliants, too. I do not know. I find that it is moisturizing as well, if this helps to answer your question. It does not irritate at all.

I have been using this product on not only my face, but my chest, back, and shoulders as well. So far, I've seen that my back, which has been known to sporadically breakout, has been staying acne free. No problems with any of the areas I'm using this product on with regard to becoming dry or irritated.

I normally just use this product on my chest and back because it is expensive and I do not want to through it as quickly as I already am. I prefer to use another soap or body wash for the rest of my body, and specifically use this on areas that are more problematic.

Hi,

It makes sense to me. It doesn't seem weird. If the product removes the natural oils in your skin, it could make the skin seem shiny. Products that do that to you may be a little bit too strong for your skin.

Hope this helps.

Hi

The directions state:

"Apply to wet skin.
-Massage gently and rinse.
-For optimal results, use in conjunction with Murad Clarifying Body Spray. "

One of my sons is using this when he showers, but only every other day, and he's having great results. He uses one of those long handled back scrubbers to apply it on his back. It's working.

I use it 3 times a week when I need it and just rinse after use. It cleanses so no need to use soap after this product. You could try it every day and see how you react to it. It is not irritating or drying.

I would say that it is going to be based on what type of acne you have and how bad the break out is. I will get clusters of very small ones and then 5-6 large ones that are just large pink bumps. I started seeing them drying up and fading within the first week. HOWEVER, I missed 2 days of using it while out of town and I broke out all over again. ALSO, I have used this in conjunction with the body acne spray. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND doing this as well!

Since it's made for body acne, it will be too strong for your face (like others have said). I originally got this for my body acne but I don't get body acne anymore and I have about 3/4 of the product left. Money is tight lately and I just don't have enough to get a face exfoliater. So, I do use this on my face, BUT I only use it once a week. Sometimes I use it twice a week but that's rare. Make sure you use moisturizer after this. I have dry skin so I can't afford to not use a moisturizer. Sorry for the lengthy answer, but I just wanted to get my point across.

In short, if you use it on your face, DO NOT use it everyday and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Hope this helps!

I wouldn't use it on the face. It's very drying on my back (and stings just a little) so I think it would be way too rough for soft facial skin.

To apply the product, I just use my hand. I only had acne on my shoulders and shoulder blades so I could reach those areas. I was afraid to use an applicator because I didn't want to waste any of the product... its kind of expensive.
