I've been using apricot scrub since I was a kid and it hasn't changed. It's simple and effective. I'll likely continue to buy it. I use it a couple times a week in the shower. It's accessible and affordable. I don't think any size tube of it costs more than $4.

I often splurge on skin care products but for exfoliators I have not found anything that compares to this for the price. It is just as good as pricier exfoliants I have used and contains good ingredients for acne-prone skin.

Love this product. You really feel the exfoliation. It also has a great smell. It leaves your skin soft and smooth. I have very sensitive skin and i find it very gentle. Definitely effective!

I would love this product more if my skin was not so thin and sensitive. The tiny exfoliants are too sharp and can leave my face feeling raw and red. I hear it works great for my sister who has normal/combination skin. I use this too by mixing it with ponds cold cream.

I love this product honestly it's a very good scrub and it makes your skin so soft after using it. I even saw a diffrence on how my blemishes are disapearing a little bit. My skin is better. At first I didn't think it would work because of the price I don't know why but surpringly it did. Totally recomend it !

I grew up with my older sister using this scrub since she was a teenager now I use it a swell I don't have sensitive skin but some creamy like exfoliants and maske really irritate my face but I am just left with a smooth finish. I can use this up to 2-3 xper week.

After 2 months of using the product it works very well. Doesn't give me break outs and I thought my skin was getting better but a couple weeks later I felt like my skin was getting use to it and the break outs have started coming back. I recommand this product for others to try because it does work for a while.

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