Love this scrub for both face and body when I want a nice harsher exfoliation. What I mean by harsher is that the beads are larger so they really do a good job of exfoliation. Can't go wrong with this product for the price too.

I love this scrub, it is very sensitive to the skin and the smell is delicious.
I recommend it, for skins that have dry parts and the fat T zone.

You can use it 3 times a week and it will not cause any kind of adverse reaction.

I recommend it to everyone, I promise it's a good investment

Use this every day! Very good for acne and gentle on sensitive skin. I’m prone to getting dry patches as well with other face washes, but this face wash has no harsh chemicals that irritate my skin or dry it out. Instead, it actually moisturizes as it exfoliates!

Recently started using this product again, and it made my skin baby smooth. It’s the only product I find that gets rid of texture on the skin or left around problem pore areas. Nice to use every now and then, but I think it might be a bit much to use everyday on skin.

I enjoy this product as a face scrub, but I find it’s not effective for blemish control. The bottle is cute, but the product just doesn’t measure up. There are better facial scrubs out there, but it’s not bad for occasional use.

Another great find from the drugstore! I use this whenever I feel like my face needs to get rid of those gross whiteheads! Very effective and affordable! I also like the salicylic acid in it. I will recommend to my friends.

I have used this product on and off for years and I have always been happy with it.
The apricot really smells lovely and I love the fact that the little bits in the scrub are apricot shells.
It really does make your skin glow as well and I would repurchase again.

One of the first scrubs i ever used and still love to this day. It doesn’t mouse up an gives a really nice polished/clean feeling afterwards. The scrub is not too intense either which makes it a go to during winter months when my skin is a little more sensitive

I absolutely love this scrub! It leaves my face feeling clean and fresh, over a 3week period I noticed that my spots were clearing up and my skin tone started to even out. I have sensitive skin and it hasn't it one bit! Just be careful to not scrub too hard.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
