Holy grail of facial cleansers! My go to cleanser for everyday! The scrub exfoliates all your skins dead cells and leaves your skin feeling smooth! Not great for removing dark eyeliner or eyeshadow.

Super good! I love using it all the time in the shower or after taking of makeup. It makes your face feel good and fresh after using it. It always helps me with my blackheads a lot.

I have had this product in my shower for about a year and i love it. I use to have pores the size of creators and now they are almost nonexistent. With its sandy spread and its cheap price it is almosst unbeatable. It also smells amazing!! Smells better than any other acne wash I've ever used

I love this apricot scrub. I use it about once a week. I'll use it before I go out. It gives my face a glow and it looks cleaner than if I just used a face wash.

Love this face wash been using it for years now. Keeps my face acne free. Feels nice on your face too after you are done washing. The rocky stuff in it takes a little getting used to, but once you do, you don't really realize it anymore. Will definitely be using this product for a long time.

I have been using this product for years! I love how refreshing my face feels afterwards. I don't use it everyday, but twice a week at least! The scrub really exfoliates super nicely!

I have had great results with the St. Ives apricot scrub. It gives a fresh expholiating feeling but can be rough for those with sensitive skin. It smells great and isn't very expensive.
