I wont use anything else. i have combination skin, meaning sometimes it's dry and sometimes it's oily. This apricot scrub works perfect for both kinds of skin and clears acne pretty well!

This is a great facial scrub. I have been using it for a while. I don't use it everyday because I have very sensitive skin, so I just use it about 2-3 times a week.

I really adore this product. It makes my skin feel so soft and I can already see my black heads getting smaller. It really does work if you use it on a daily basis.

Have never tried this before but from what the reviews are saying I'd love to try this sometime soon. I don't have acne problems but I do get my blackheads here & there so it'd be nice :)

I've been using this for about 6 months, and it's a really great exfoliator! My face always feels super clean, smooth, and healthy after I use it. I don't use it every day, maybe just about three times per week, and it's always a noticeable difference.

This does as it says. It's incredibly exfoliating and might be s little much for some people with more sensitive skin, but I noticed my skin keeping clear while I was using this product.

I feel like this scrub doesn't do anything for my skin. It's a little harsh so I feel like I'm actually harming my skin. The only plus is that it smells pretty good

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