I feel like this product really worked for me. It exfoilated my skin and cleaned my face very well. I always enjoyed using it because of the smell. I love apricot. I recommend this product.
It’s kinda expensive in my country.
But I can tell that every time I have the opportunity to buy this product I’m the happiest person. I really like the smell of it, and the softness it produces on my skin after using it.

I love this product; it's one of those things I just keep coming back to. Does the job, and is still gentle on my skin. Comes in regular, and sensitive skin formulas. Great natural way to clean inside those deep pores!

Used this product many times. It's very affordable for the results you get. Leaves my skin feeling clean with no residue left behind. I wouldn't recommend for a daily cleanser but definitely good to have for a quick wash.

This is definitely worth a try. It's not pricey but very effective when it comes to exfoliating the face. It's not that harsh compared to other facial scrubs and is definitely worth the rave. Will recommend to others :)

I've used this product on and off. When it is the drier seasons, it is much friendlier to my somewhat acne-prone skin. In the summer and humidity, I need something a little stronger. I do love the scrub aspect though!

This stuff is alright for the price you pay. Makes a good generic face wash. However, the apricot seeds can cause micro tears in your skin so I would avoid using this if at all possible.

I have always suffered from really bad blackheads and after using this a couple of times they have almost all gone. This stuff is great and it makes your face feel so smooth afterwards.

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