I really like facial scrubs. This one I really like to use every other day to help exfoliate my skin. I have really bad congested skin and this works really well for me.

I've been using this since middle school...back when i had no clue what I was doing, but none the less I love it. Deep exfoliation, cheap price. Could it get any better?

This has been a trusted face scrub that I have used for years. I like this, and the scrub for sensitive skin. They smell great and leave my face feeling soft and smooth.

This product and the apricot fresh scrub feel the exact same to me. This product helps reduce my pimples over time. If it's not this scrub I'm using at night, than it's the apricot fresh scrub.

I love it. It got rid of my already existing acne and prevented it from getting worse. Cleared my face and kept it clear! I just wish it didn't dry my face out so much.

I recommend this product for oily skin only. But use it once or twice a week. It helps exfoliate your skin and leaves it smooth. It’s never helped my acne but maybe for other people it will.

This is a good face scrub and it helps keep my skin clear without over drying it. It also smells good and doesn't feel to abrasive on my skin but it still feels clean!

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
