It is a good blackhead scrub. This is great for weekly use. That is probably works best. I love the apricot in the scrub.

This usually works really well, though it does occasionally irritate my skin and seems to cause me to have new breakouts.

Very good product to use for exfoliation, but can be a little too much for some. I did like that it has a pleasant scent.
