I've used this stuff since I was 13. Works great. Keeps face soft and clean, I've never had a problem with dry skin. I have friends that also use it and they have the same results as me. Helps my break outs within a day.

I've been using this stuff since I was a kid and love it as much now as I ever did. It seriously smells good enough to eat and really does the job of exfoliating my face and keeping my pores clean and clear of blackheads!

This stuff helps my skin so much. It's the best scrub I've found out there. It does not leave my combination skin too dry or oily. It actually helps blackheads, too!

Used to be a big fan, but as i have gotten older it the last time i used this it seemed to leave my face a little greasy afterwards. like it didn't feel clean to me.

This is good for a once daily use. I found it dried out my skin too much and I had to stop using it. The smell is refreshing and if my skin would have tolerated it I would've kept using it!

This is a great exfoliator. I like to use it a couple of times per week because it really makes my skin feel squeaky clean although it can be a little drying at times.

I havent tried many other things with this brand but I always buy this specific product. I love the smell of the apricot and the little beads. Its exfoliating without being too harsh.

I find that this is my holy grail face cleanser. It always works for me even when I have not used it in several months. The price is ALWAYS better than other brands.

This scrub is too harsh on the skin. It causes micro tears and irritates it. It dried out my skin. If you were to still use this, I would suggest using it sparingly.

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