I love the way my skin feels after I use this face scrub. It takes off all the stuff that I feel like builds up on my face after a long day. I usually use it a few times a week.

It made my skin feel extremely clean and smooth, but It does not seem to be 100% natural. There are countless ingredients in it that I had never heard of, none of them natural.

Good product if you get what's best for your skin type. I have sensitive skin, so the apricot scrub is too harsh for me. The green tea and the even and bright versions are better for me and I love them.

I love this scrub. It is great to avoid blemishes as well as to go away faster. Smelly good and feels good while scrubbing. No need to scrub hard. And can use on your body too.

This is a good face scrub. I only use it maybe once a week because it has a lot of grit in it. It is good when you want a deep face clean. Maybe a little harsh for everyday use.

I really like this product. I like that it exfoliates nicely and smells great, but you do need to be careful with it since it can scratch your skin easily. Overall, if you're gentle with it, it's great.

This product is used by my teenage daughter and she loves it. The smell is mild and calming and this product goes a long way. It leaves her skin cleaner looking and refreshed.
I find thia prod work quite nicely. It makes your skin feel soft too. I would recommend that others begin to use this to. I think it's great that they made it oil free as well.
