I have sensitive skin and the beads do irritate my skin. I find that gently lathering it over my body is optimal for results. Continuously scrubbing or using a bunch does cause me to break out a little. Overall, this product worked to clear most of my body acne, but I still get pimples on my arms, chest and back from time to time, which sucks. I'm going to keep searching for total clearness, but this product does work if you don't scrub a bunch or hard and not overusing it as I have learned. It does minimize breakouts however. I do everything you're suppose to do, I drink lots of water, eat healthier than normal people, workout, moisturize, don't pick at/pop pimples and shower daily.
