Probably the best scrub I've used for its price. Smells delicious and did what it was supposed to. Helped with my acne breakouts in high school!

This product didn't help my sensitive skin. The beads were a little bit too harsh on my skin and I feel like it didn't help with my acne either!

Had this in the shower for a while but never really noticed any of a difference as far as blackheads go. Ended up using it as a full body scrub.

I have used this product since I was 12 years old and it hasn't failed me yet! I also use it to exfoliate my arms and chest before self tanning!

I like the smell and feel of this scrub, but don't like the side effects of greasy skin and more breakouts. I'm sticking with my other products.

This scrub is amazing, it exfoliates the dead skin without making face dry. Exfoliation grains are not harsh and leaves the skin soft and smooth.

Just finished a bottle of this stuff. I liked that’s the scrub part wasn’t to rough against the skin. The apricot scent smells really nice too.

This is great when you have dry skin or dry patches. It does help but I recommend using it once a week especially when you have sensitive skin

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