Not the best exfoliating scrub, but it's fine by me. I use it quite often, I like how it makes my face soft and how there is plenty exfoliating beads. I will continue to buy this. The price is not that bad either.

Never had a problem with stuff. It smells great and it's a great exfoliater. When looking for a skin scrub I always seem to come back to this one. Great price too.

I have been using this apricot scrub a couple of years now and it's the only scrub that clears my blackheads on my nose without over drying the rest of my face. Love this natural product!

I used to buy products like this one that were more expensive and not at all as effective as this one. I was impressed with how well this exfoliates, given the price tag! All I need now is once a week and I'm good!

I've used this several times over the years, but find it to be too harsh for regular use. It is good for an occasional deep clean, especially in the hot, humid summers in the south.

This is a great product to exfoliate your skin with. It has a perfect balance of texture and moisture without feeling to harsh on your skin. It always leaves my face feeling fresh and even helps prevent breakouts.
