Both my husband and I swear by this product. It gives you a very clean feel because you can feel the apricot beads scrub off the dirt and grime. Most products would leave your face feeling oily after but this product does not.

I use this product every morning. It’s a very good exfoliant and has helped reduce my acne as well as fade my acne scars! I love having the exfoliant combined with my acne treatment and this product works better than any other acne treatment I have personally tried.

One of the best scrubs ever! Smells so so good! All the beads really help get in your pores and remove blackheads. Also it is rather cheap! I highly recommend this product to anyone that has a lot of blackheads and big pores.

LOVE THIS STUFF. It's kinda messy though so I recommend using it in the shower only. It is effective, but I wouldn't recommend using it if you've already broken out. It is a great quality and I'll definitely buy it again once I run out, it lasts a long time though.

I love how this product did what it said it does. My face feels amazing daily. It wasn’t a very pricey item however it work wonders on my face. The product is a gentle product for people like myself with sensitive skin. I buy this product whenever I run out.

This has helped my skin while it is breaking out from stress. It is refreshing, and helps me exfoliate. I bought mine at target after getting many recommendations from people, it has exceeded my expectations.

This product is amazing! It exfoliates my skin so well, when i leave the shower i feel my skin is softer cleaner, and my pores are clear. This product is a staple. It is on the Harsh side and shouldn't be used to often. Overall its a great affordable product

Does a great job exfoliating. I use it every night. However, if you have make up on you have to use mild face soap before scrubbing. I have oily skin and it works great for me. I would def recommendation this product to those who need extra exfoliation w oily skin.
