Absolutely love this product for occasional exfoliation. It can be harsh on the skin, so it shouldn't be used everyday and I usually use it with a moisturizer.

When I need a quick refreshing wash I use St. Ives Apricot Scrub - it does the trick but unfortunately I need a stronger formula to use on a daily basis.

I love using this always makes my face feel clean after using it. Sometimes I put it on and let it set for just a lil bit then take it off, Kinda like a mask.

This is my favorite facial scrub. It’s abrasive enough to really get the dirty and oil out but without discomfort or redness. I feel so clean after using this.

This product seemed to work and smelled so good, but after a while it began to dry out my skin really bad. Maybe I wasn't using the right moisturizer with it.
