This product has been in my life forever, I love the smell and also the beads that exfoliate the skin. Everyone in my family uses it and I don't think that will ever change.

My family and I have oily skin and blemish easily so we have been using this scrub for years and will never stop using. It is a deep scrub without being too rough on the skin.

I use it every day in the shower and I can feel it reaching deep down into my pores.  I like the fact it is a scrub because it is great at exfoliating also I think.

I love this face wash after washing my face it really feels clean. The scrubbers make me feel like I'm scrubbing off all the impurities. It also really helps to clear up acne.

We always keep a tube of those in my house at all times. If you use it gently, it will do the job perfectly! If you have bumpy arms or chest, use this gently on those areas and you will be pleased with the results. Definitely recommend

This apricot scrub is one of my very favorite. It smells good, it cleanses my skin making my face feel fresh and clean after washing. It smells good, it's cheap but worth it.
