I like the consistency of the product, for the purpose of a scrub. However this product didn't really clear my face up and was a bit harsh on my sensitive skin

I like it but maybe a little too drying. I like the smell and the texture of the scrubs. I usually have to use a moisturizer with it because of my skin type.

I tried to cheap out and stop using proactiv and tried to use St.Ives body scrub instead. It did absolutely nothing for my acne. However, it does smell nice :)

Classic. This is a cheap way to exfoliate that will give you high end results. No leak packaging. Last a long time. It's really up to the pressure used by you

My aunt introduced me to the apricot scrub when I was a teen. Never used any other on my face. I like the smell, and it makes my face very soft and less oily.

Love this produce, I use it twice a week to get all the grim off my face while also deep cleaning. It makes my face feel fresh, clean and new after using it.

Best scrub of all time in terms of effectiveness and cost. The scrubbers aren't too harsh so you can use it on your face. It also smells great which is a plus!

This product worked well for my skin. I'm normally an oily skin type. But after multiple uses I felt my skin begin to dry and the need for facial lotion after.
