You can feel the bits of apricot in the scrub. It works as a physical exfoliator, but can be a bit abrasive on the skin, so a gentle touch is a must.

Best skincare product I've ever used. Gets the job done. Controls my blemishes without over drying. I have oily skin and this stuff works like a dream.

I love this scrub, i use it a few times a week. Sometimes it can feel harsh on the skin, but after you wash it all off my skin feels so smooth and soft

I do enjoy the feeling this gives my face, and the beads, etc.
I do not see results though as I do with other face washes.
I recommend Clean N Clear.

This face wash helps my face so much. It deep cleans and makes my face feel smooth. I’ve been a long time user and have even recommended it to friends.

Good...could be a LITTLE too harsh and rough with the rougher particles in this as compared to their green tea scrub, but its cleansing and not drying

It's okay for an exfoliater but there is definitely some harsh chemicals that can be more harmful if used on sensitive skin. SO PLEASE USE WITH CAUTION

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
