Nice enough, but I'm never bowled over by exfoliators
I received a sample size of this in a set from PinchMe several months ago. It did what it said on the tin: removed dead skin cells and made my skin feel a little smoother than it had before.
However, I have congested and very acne-prone skin that's difficult to tame. I've been on the pill and used heavy duty skincare and thus far it's proven resistant. So while this did make my skin feel a little nicer, I'm not going to tell you that I stepped out of the shower and thought "Whoa, my skin is glowing and so clear now!"
It's definitely a nice step in my routine, but I've never been bowled over by an exfoliator. Maybe people with normal to combo skin tones will notice a more drastic difference! I'd repurchase it if I ran out of an exfoliator, purely because I'm familiar with it and it did what it says on the tin.

I got it as sample from Neutrogena and then I bought full size product. The scrub comes in convenient tube packing. The scrub has thick with creamy texture with small plastic beads. The exfoliating beads are round and fine, while they did not feel harsh and abrasive on my skin. After massaging this scrub, I removed it with few splashes of water. It is not sticky and can be remove easily. My skin felt fresh and hydrated after using it. It did not tear and striped my skin. I used it for weeks and noticed that my skin was healthy and glowing. It did minimize the appearance of blackheads or pores and it did not cause me bad reaction. I really love this product, this is an other winner from Neutrogena. But I did not use it every day, I used this twice or thrice in the week. I will recommend it for every one, for all types of skin, even your partner can use it.

Great for sensitive skin!
After trying out the St Ives Green Tea Scrub and ending up with little bumps all over my forehead, I tried this out after a Youtuber recommended it. Firstly, it is a thick white formula with little blue beads in it. Rubbing it in results in a nice, not too harsh exfoliation. It really is a gentle scrub.It also has a lovely orange scent!
I can use it every day without it drying my skin, but prefer to use it every second day or so. My skin is clearer, but this could also be due to other products I'm using in conjunction (such as the La Roche Posay Effaclar duo) but this has definitely made a difference. However it has made no difference to my blackheads, but almost nothing does! Overall an excellent scrub for gentle skin, I will most likely repurchase.

I wasn't a huge fan of this scrub, it sounded really promising what with the deep cleansing and gentle claims (perfect for my acne prone sensitive skin), but kinda failed to wow me. I don't claim to know much about ingredients in beauty products or how they work, but this is the 3rd scrub/mask I've used with beta hydroxy and I always seem to end up with congested skin afterward :| I thought at first this might be a purging process, getting all the crap in my skin to the surface to eliminate it, but no - I was just left with congested looking skin that only got better when I stopped using this.
Unfortunate because it was a nice scrub; pleasant scent, nice consistency & not too harsh. Might work for others.

Gentle, yet very effective
I really love this scrub. You can really feel it working on your skin, getting rid of all the dead skin cells and gunk that has been building up. It's quite grainy but doesn't at all irritate my skin. I find myself going back again and again to this product because it has proven to be effective and very useful to my skin. And the price is fantastic! Definitely a standout product from Neutrogena.

Ok but not stellar
This scrub is a low fragranced, white cream that's quite thick when it comes out of the tube yet lathers up on the face. It feels like you're scrubbing little grains of sand into your skin and although the tube says "gentle" I find it a bit harsh and drying for my skin, although I've tried worse scrubs as well. As a previous reviewer said, it just doesn't excite me and I think there are better facial scrubs out there so I wouldn't repurchase.

Doesn't change, great standard scrub.
I always have some of this scrub on hand for days when my skin doesn't need any correcting, but it feels ready for a scrub.
There isn't any scent which is nice for days when you don;t need to feel like you are putting your face in a bowl of fruit. The beads are small enough to work magic, but big enough that they don't get lost, and it washes off really easily, something a lot of cream based scrubs aren't known for.
I often pair this with their grapefruit wash to get a good hit in the shower, and for weekly use, it works for me.

An average scrub
I'm not too big on scrubs or physical exfoliants as they can easily irritate my skin, despite it not being very sensitive. I use this one occasionally if I notice my skin drying. For me the texture is a bit coarser than I would like but having said that this doesn't irritate my skin and does help smooth dryness.

A great product, is smells kind of citrus-y. It's a gentle scrub but actually does very well at exfoliating the skin with tiny micro-beads. I have oily-combination skin and this didn't feel greasy, it left my skin feeling clean and soft.

A great little scrub
This is a very gentle, effective scrub for making my face feel clean, fresh but not dry and tight. The light creamy orange scent is pleasant and lovely way to start the day. I use this a couple of times a week.
