I use this face wash in the shower and I like how it has beads in it. I bought this at Rite Aid. I would recommend and would buy again.

I love this product for my entire body!! Exfoliating is so great for your skin, there is no need to limit this wash to just your face!

This is my go to product when I need to exfoliate. I love that it's natural and doesn't dry out my skin the way some exfoliants can.

I love apricot, but don't like mechanical exfoliation. I end up with red, irritated skin with scrubs. I sick with chemical exfoliation.
