@truman12 - It is definitely worth giving a shot. I have been using a baking soda facial cleanser that I make myself for around three months and the skin on my face has never looked better. It is smooth, not oily, and my pores are clear.
I did not have big problems with acne, but I would get the occasional blemish. Since I started this baking soda scrub I have not noticed a single break out.
