I’ve always used this products and it’s definitely my go-to exfoliater. It’s a good price and really helps keep your skin clear, smooth, and refreshed. I did find however, the Walmart brand of this works just as well and is a little bit cheaper.

I love this scrub!!!! It is on the rougher side so it is important to be careful with it. It is very inexpensive and lasts for a long time! It got rid of my acne scars quickly when I used it every two days!

This is my holy grail exfoliator. It's deep cleaning, non irritating, and leaves the skin feeling really clean and ready to take serum. An absolute must in any (non-sensitive-skinned) beauty routine.

It's perfect. I've been using this everyday and everynight! It's the kinda product that you just can't live without. The ones that you need, but it does make a difference especially if your skin is dry and not healthy or discoloration. It literally just cleans your face completely.

Love this facial scrub really does the job! by far my favorite facial scrub i have tried! Gets rid of make up and any dirt that may be left on your face from the day. I highly recommend this to someone who is looking to improve acne prone skin or just in search of a great facial scrub.

I use this scrub daily and it is wonderful! Gives my skin a facial clean feeling and removes the dead old skin cells without irritating the fresh, new skin! I love the smell and that the exfoliators are made of fruit! I highly recommend this!

The good old apricot scrub. This is an old school product. This has been around since my preteen days and it's a staple for many. It not only works on the face but it's also great for dark underarms and bikini lines.
