Is this scrub breaking me out, and if so, why?

Yes possibly, I think it might bring the impurities out of the skin. Is your skin sensitive?

I'm no expert btw

My mum tried to tell me scrubs make you break out but I persevered anyway and they always made me spotty.

I can use aha exfoliants so I use heaven skin polish but paulas choice is popular on here too.

I have no idea why scrubs don't suit me.

I think I read that if you have oily skin, stripping it with a scrub means it sends loads more to replenish the oil, so you end up with at best skin which is the same and at worst skin which is worse.

I have oily/greasy skin and I have come to the conclusion that that just is my skin, I am never going to look all matt and dewy.

Think that makes sense!

I don't believe in the whole idea of products releasing impurities and making you break out. If something works it should work straight away (the exception being some kind of really deep-cleansing facial). Sounds like your scrub has maybe got some other clogging ingredients in, I doubt it is the granules themselves. I use this:
It's a body scrub but all Mama Mio stuff is facial quality so like a lot of their products you can use it on your face too (but wet rather than dry). Peachy cheeks after just one use - and no zits!
