A staple in my shower. I never go without it. It works great, is cheap and always works on dull winter skin. I use it in the shower every few days...

Clean and fresh solution to a greasy and dirty face. Best face scrub that I have used.

Other brands will leave my face feeling dry but this does not

I could eat this stuff I think. Never have jus started saying. It works decent. I don't like how it leaves all the stuff in the shower afterwards.

I've used this product for years and I will always continue to repurchase it. I use it a few times a week and it makes a huge difference in my skin!

This is not good to exfoliate with. The apricot seeds are too big and enlarge your pores. The brand is decent for the money but beware of the scrub.
