I felt that this cleaned my skin very well and didn't dry it out. IT doesn't smell very nice though and there is definitely better out there.

Works great on skin feeling soft and clean. The best part is it does not cost a lot! Also it doesn't smell like your average blemish scrub.

I've use this cleanser for years! I love it. Keeps my skin clean and refreshed. Targets those pesky blemishes with tiny scrubbing particles.

The only face wash I can use frequently. I have sensitive skin and this product doesn't bother it, if I use it 3 times a week in the shower.

I really like this scrub. I only use it about once a week because it is kindof a harsh exfoliate but I did see results after about four uses

I like how the apricot scrub gets my skin so clean. I just apply it on my face and rub gently. My skin is extra clean and fresh afterwards.

This scrub is great! It has tiny beads that help exfoliate and get rid of dead skin cells. It has also helped get rid of dry spots on my face
