This is a great product when you need to exfoliate your face. Smells good, the apricot seeds are not harsh when scrubbed. It makes my skin feel very soft after using it.

I love this product and use it all the time. Not only my face, but my back also tends to breakout. I use this in the shower to wash my back and face. It has helped eliminate my breakouts/blackheads.

I love this product, especially considering that it's a natural product. This stuff works, and I swear it keeps me from not getting acne. I use this once a week, or whenever I feel my skin needs it.

This makes my skin super soft and clean feeling, but I wouldn't recommend it for daily use. It can be a little harsh if you press down too hard, so just use a light hand.
