It cleanses skin so well but leaves you with a feeling of fresh skin that's not drying. I use it any other day. Even though it's a scrub it's very gentle on the skin. Absolutely in love with this product.  Unexpected results for the price. I recommend it to my friends and followers every one who tried loved it.

Love this product. Smells amazing and leaves skin feeling truely exfoliated. Can't really speak to the blemish control, haven't noticed a significant change. But after use, my skin does feel really clean and soft. Would recommend with a moisturizer to use afterword so skin doesn't dry out. Wish it was Cruelty Free

Great facial wash. It really gets in a scrubs your skin clean. Would really recommend daily use if you tend to have dry skin because it can dry out your skin. Overall though it honestly feels like your at the spa in your shower with how well this stuff makes your skin feel when you rinse it off. It feels amazing!

This is the only cleanser I have used for several years now! Leaves my face feeling clean. I used to struggle with severe breakouts and multiple blackheads patches in my t zone. Now I may get 1 pimple a year, and the blackheads are virtually non existent

This is a great product that I have been using for years.  It is affordable and conveniently available at most drugstores.  In my opinion, this product is on par with some luxury brands. It offers a great value.  I would recommend this product to anyone looking for just a general exfoliant.

First of all, AMAZING! No harsh smell and keeps my face at bay during lazy skin days. I use if with a spin brush, and my face feels and looks soft and clear. I alternate between this and bar soap.

I actually enjoyed this a lot since it felt very gentle and refreshing on my skin after washing my face. It was a little bit effective I suppose, I am a first time user, and I would definitely recommend it to others. St. Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub

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