This apricot scrub is something I come back to year after year. It’s super affordable, does a great job at exfoliating, and has a bit of salicylic acid.

This is my go-to facial scrub. It really exfoliates well and has a pleasant fragrance. My face is sensitive, but this doesn’t leave it red and irritated.

This is a very abrasive scrub that gets the job done. It really cleans and exfoliates very well. The price point is great and it can be found everywhere.

I like to use this scrub every once in a while. It leaves your face feeling smooth but if i use it to much then my face dries out. It has a great smell.
