This scrub leaves my face feeling fresh. It also takes my blemishes down a notch but sometimes if a scrub this scrub too hard it scratches my face

This is one of very few products that I will use on my face that leaves a clean feeling!! It takes all the dead skin and black heads off my face.

I love this one. Works great on oily skin, but that also means that it's very harsh/strong. Make sure to moisturize at least after every other use!

Unlike how this scrub helps takes off any excess oil and dirt off,my face. I like the rough texture to it. I like to use this product twice a week.

It really does nothing for me, except remove my dead skin but that's basically about it, and everyone else says the same thing so I don't like it.

Gets all the dead skin off and it leaves your face really smooth. It did not cause me to break out cause of my sensitive skin and the smell of it.

It is a nice product. It might be a bit harsh if you scrub too hard. I use it to exfoliate my black heads, but I haven't seen much results to that.

Apricot scrub has a gentle graininess that does a wonderful job of exfoliating. I felt my face would clearer and cleaner after just a couple uses.

I have very sensitive and combination skin. This is good for my overnight bag, but I can't use it frequently or my face will feel dirty and sore.
