My mother-in-law buys me a bottle of this every year for christmas, and typically it last me until the next years christmas. It's a great go-to, helps keep my skin looking healthy. I tend to experiment with higher-end products but return to this when my beauty routine is in a lull.

I'm not sure if it does a while lot for blackheads, but I still enjoy this scrub. I really like how clean my fave feels after I use it and my skin is very soft. Great exfoliator!

I have used this product and I must say that initially it did make my skin feel smooth and even look a little radiant, but after about 30 minutes my skin is not radiant anymore and my skin didn't feel as smooth. If you have pigmentation scars and/or acne, I wouldn't advise using it!

This stuff is great. I love the invigorating scrub. Although, I always opt to purchase the store brand equivalent. A lot cheaper and I feel that it does just as well. I try not to use facial scrubs every day, as they tend to dry my face up.

This product smells great and is very affordable. You also get a lot of this product so it won't run out very fast. Leaves your skin feeling super soft and scrubs away dead skin!

This is a great facial wash for the price. I love to use it in the shower and its very refreshing after a day at the beach when your pores feel clogged with sunscreen and sand.

I tried this product and loved it! It has little bead like pieces in it that make it feel "Rough" In texture and really geet deep into the pores this helped a lot with blackheads for me however you shouldnt use it every day as it could irritate the skin but overall its a great product

I have very un-sensitive skin (knock on wood), and nothing makes me feel clear and shiny like the apricot scrub. I've read that it's technically too harsh on your face, so sensitive-skinned ladies, beware!
