I keep this in the shower, and use 3 times a week. I love the smell, how deep the scrub feels without affecting my sensitive skin, I use it on my neck and chest sometimes too. My skin feels super soft afterwards.

This is my favorite face wash and is great for acne prone sensitive skin. It is also great at removing make up. It is a great exfoliating face wash and my skin feels so clean after using it. And it is inexpensive. I can find it for under $4 at Target.

I have been using this off and on for years. I love the Apricot smell. It is pure heaven. I feel like the scrub really deep cleans my face. What else do you need?

I absolutely love this exfoliator! It helps to keep acne at bay, while also gently removing scars as well. It's not gentle on my sensitive skin and it's not drying either. Love! Love!

This product smells soo good.. it also makes your skin look really clean and more vibrant.. i don't recommend bying this if you have a lot of acne because the beads in the cream can cause your pimple to pop which will only make your acne problem worse

Great exfoliant! I don't feel like the scrub is peeling off my skin or tearing it! Exfoliates gently and washes away clean, no icky residue. Been using this since I was a little girl.

I've been using this for about a year now, and it really does the job of making my skin feel CLEAN. This is always my go-to facial wash when my face feels a little... meh. I'll definitely keep repurchasing this!

This product is nice, it exfoliates well. It leaves my skin soft, removes my blackheads & works better than other products I have tried. I have been using it for the past year, it keeps my breakouts to a minimum.
