Now this is a product that does what it says!!
Can be rough on sensitive skin, but still ok if you don't use daily.
Highly recommended for make up wearers.
Great price and a little goes a long way!

I received this scrub in my Campus VoxBox. It has a nice, fresh scent. If you have really sensitive skin, I would suggest you only use it on occasion to prevent severe dryness.

I have very sensitive, combination skin. This scrub has been the most gentle, while still able to cleanse my face. I've had a lot of bad experiences with face care products and this is definitely my go to. Plus, it smells really good!

This is the only face wash my husband and I use. My husband has always had acne problems and loves this product. I have been lucky with my skin and still enjoy how this product makes me feel rejuvenated.

I use this product to exfoliate my body especially my legs and feet because they tend to get dry. I think this is too harsh to use on my face because of the tiny seed particles.

I've been using this for years! It never fails to leave me with soft skin and a healthy glow. The beads in the scrub helps so much with removing any dead skin left on my face.

I have been working in the skin care industry and as an exfoliator this apricot scrub is way to abrasive on the face! People think you need something that rough on your skin but its the complete opposite. I would stay away from this scrub

Super scrubby and makes your face so soft after you use it. It smells nice and is high quality. Doesn't use super harsh chemicals which is nice, especially since it's still effective. I use it every day

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