This is great for exfoliating and scrubbing off the dead skin cells on your face to keep your pores from clogging! Plus the smell is amazing! Leaves your face with a nice clean feeling!

Pretty good at exfoliating and a very nice product, however, it never really improved my blemishes. If you want a deep clean I would recommend this product but not for tough skin issues

This is my to go exfoliator. I always go back to using it. I did have some trouble after my skin got more sensitive but I just used the sensitive version and it worked wonders. Love it!

I swear by this face scrub. The little beads in the scrub really work off the dead skin cells on your face and make it nice and smooth. I would recommend this face scrub to any of my friends looking for a new brand.

The scent and how it leaves your skin feeling is incredible. I have extremely sensitive skin and this doesn't give me any bad reactions at all!! Plus it's so easy to find and affordable!

Love this product. It makes my face feel so smooth and the salicylic acid helps to control any blemishes that may appear from time to time. I do not have super sensitive skin so the scrub may be too harsh if you do.

I love this product I've used it for many years. The apricot smell is great and the beads are gentle and soothing. I wouldn't use this multiple times a day though, it can cause dry skin.

This facial scrub is very gentle on my very sensative skin. I use it once a week and i see a drastic change in the amount of blackheads on my nose. Leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth!

Smells good, is gentle on the skin, and it makes your face feel fresh - all for a good price. I have been buying this since I was about 13 years old, so it is one of my go-to beauty items.
