Really like this exfoliator, but it is a little bit rough. I wouldn't suggest this for everyday use, but 2-3 days a week should be fine. Makes skin very smooth and has a really lovely apricot scent. Would buy again

To me is the best exfolliator out there, I've been using it since I was 15 years old and it has never let me down I tried other products and always got back to it! It takes away everything without hurting your skin or causing reactions Amazing scent and packaging!Overall an incredible product!!

I've used this since I was in school and it helped a lot with my breakouts. I've tried other cleansers but always come back to this as it really does the job. It isn't to harsh on the skin which is why I love it ❤❤

Definitely recommend to people with very oily skin. This product really is moisturizing for your face and leaves your skin feeling incredibly smooth after evry use and really helps control breakouts from happening

When my skin is breaking out I like to use this product maybe once a week. It gets rid of the dead skin and leaves my skin feeling smooth and refreshed. It is a harsh scrub but I like it for every now and then use.

Definitely my favourite exfoliating scrub. When used a couple times a week this scrub promotes smooth, healthy and glowing blemish-free skin. The scent is soothing and it combines perfectly with the therapeutic effects of the exfoliating scrub.

have been using this product and Neutrogena's transparen't facial bar since I was 12 years old and I am now 26. All my life I've had beautiful radiant skin due in part to using this product. I swear by this scrub wholeheartedly. Anyone I've introduced this scrub to swears by it as well! After suffering from adult acne due to hormonal changes this past summer, and trying countless over the counter acne meds, as well as prescribed medications...that experience led me back to my beloved St .Conclusion:I highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone. It doesn't irritate your skin while also making it very smooth.

This is the best scrub when it comes to quality/price. It's really inexpensive and it works perfectly good. Been using this ever since I can remember. It's perfect for everyday use and it takes your makeup off.

Apricot scrub is a staple in my shower. Refreshing scent and clean feeling afterwards. The apricot beads make my skin feel clean and refreshed. Never has irritations and gentle enough to use more than once a day.

A gentle exfoliant that can be used daily, or weekly. Great price, amazing value! Very gentle on my skin, but I would not recommend for very sensitive skin as the exfoliant itself is a little sharp. Improvements? I would switch the formula and half the non-dissolvable exfoliant and replace with something that dissolves (crystal honey maybe?).

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