I love This product since day one. This product helped my through my acne and it really scrubbed off all my dead skin in the winter and fall. I love the smell of this product and the little orange things that is in the scrub.  Overall 9/10.  I would definitely buy this again

This stuff is amazing! It is the best scrub I have used! It is not over-powering, and it is very effective! It also smells great. It doesn't leave my skin dry, red, or irritated. It works especially well for shrinking blackheads, and whiteheads. I recommend this 100%

I have very sensitive skin and can't use allot of things on it especially cleansers. This is ride only thing that helps with my breakouts with out giving me any kind of bad reaction. It leaves my face so clean and feels all natural.

This product is perfect for my dry flakey skin in the winter! the apricot pieces does a great job of gently exfoliating your skin without completely stripping your face of its natural oils! This is always my go to face wash it gets the job done and it smells sooooo good!!!

It is an overall great product but if you have sensitive skin steer away from this product because it is very rough on the skin. It helps me with my breakouts and it makes my skin feel so soft and healthy after using this product

the first scrub I ever purchased three years ago and I use it to this day! probably my favourite beauty product, easy to use, leaves your skin feeling refreshed and wonderful, use up to 3 times a week, lasts a very long time even if you use it weekly, wonderful product!

I clearly am in love with this product since I use it every day and have repurchased it over and over again! It's gentle enough to use every day and it feels so good. Like a facial in the shower. I highly recommend you try it.
