Good, basic face scrub. I use this 2-3 times a week. I usually feel pretty clean but am not completely satisfied with it. I can't really pinpoint why, I just think it's missing something.

This one is actually my husbands favorite. He uses it every two to 3 days and his skin has improved dramatically, he has no breakouts , his skin is not oily as it was before and he has barely any blackheads.

This used to be one of my favorite products until I realized that the company's claims of being 'natural' really weren't true. There are many other exfoliating products available that are more natural and safe for use.

I really like this product makes your face feel vary clean and smooth. I like using this after I wash my face with my makeup cleanser. I feel as though It washes off all residue. Also doesn't leave face feeling dry.

Great product!! Leaves my skin feeling smooth. Might be harsh for very sensitive skin... But if you still want to try it make sure if ur skin is sensitive that you don't rub to hard and don't use it everyday.

I have very oily skin and for some reason, this breaks my skin out terribly. Maybe it's an ingredient I'm allergic to because a lot of my friends swear by it....

I have been using apricot scrub for years. I normally wash my face with my mild cleanser then scrub then oil free moisturizer. It does minimize some white heads...I just like how soft my skin is after a scrub.

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