I would not recommend this, very harsh sands that irritate my skin. I didn’t enjoy the blistering feeling after washing my face. I often would use this on my less sensitive parts like feet and back.

On and off since I was a teen and I love it! I love a good, rough exfoliating scrub once on awhile and this does the job!

After trying a lot of skin care products this seems to be the one that has kept my breakouts under control. I really like the gentle formula it doesn't dry out my face after using! It's affordable I include this in my everyday skin care routine!

After using this scrub my face is left smooth to the core. It leaves an amazing apricot smell that isnt too strong and doesnt dry my skin out like others. I rarely ever tend to break out using this!!

I love my apricot scrub, the exfoliating beads are delightful. I bought this in Walmart. It met all my expectations it exfoliate and moisturize. Its gentle on the shin to the amount of force applied

Beautiful smell!! Works amazingly. My skin felt so refreshed and I noticed a significant difference in the amount of acne on my face after a week!! Purchased at Woolworths.

I’ve been using this for over 15 years now. I use it twice a week to exfoliate. I wouldn’t recommend it being used daily, it’s not necessary and will irritate sensitive skin if you scrub too hard.

The smell is amazing and the graininess does help to remove blackheads and to remove any dead skin cells. I had to use it every other day because it was a little harsh on my skin but it works wonders!

This is way to harsh for the skins. It gave me breakout when I used this. However it's a great body scrub. I bought it a wal mart and it really cheap. I don't love to pay too much for a body scrub.

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