i can go without exfoliating, and the beads in this do not make my pores feel like they are getting bigger they seem to be super soft on the skin

This is a very nice product. The apricot seed exfoliants feel really good on the skin. Leaves your skin feeling refreshed and clean. However for me, it didn't do much in the way of helping my acne. I probably wouldn't buy it again other than for the clean feeling it leaves.

This used to be my go to exfoliator, especially before applying makeup! I was told by my dermatologist that sometimes these abrasive exfoliators can be worse for acne, so i try not to use this scrub when my skin is breaking out. It makes a good lip scrub too!
