This is a great gentle exfoliant that won't break you out or dry you out either. The only downside is the smell. It doesn't smell like apricots at all.

I like this face scrub but don't use it very often due to the fact it is so rough. It doesn't have the best smell either. Overall, it does a good job.

This is a staple skincare product for me! I absolutely love the scrub and how it exfoliates my skin and it smells really good. It is also a good price.

I love the scent of this and how clean it gets my skin. My only concern is that I have very sensitive skin. If I use this daily my skin gets really dry

I use this 3 times per week and it keeps my skins clear. The blackheads have disappeared and my skin is less oily. It isn't for everyday use,though.

Clears your pores and removes bad oils, leaving your face feeling clean and smooth! I highly recommend this product, especially when on a low budget.

I like this simplicity of this cleanser, but it didn't do anything for me. I Used It Every Day, But It Didn't rid Of My blackheads. Very disappointed.
