The product may seem to be just a scrub, but it's a two in one. It has salicylic acid for acne. It is coarser than some scrubs, which is a plus. It will take off that dead skin without being too rough. It's a great product to have on hand when I want to make my skincare routine a step shorter by cleansing and scrubbing in one.

I love this scrub I always buy it and it's the only one that works for me. I use it twice a day and by the end of the week I can really tell how much my pores have minimized! it leaves my skin feeling soft and very refreshed. Plus it smells awesome! Would definitely recommend. ✊

I've always loved this scrub but always got more skin problems after using it. After getting older and doing research I found out just how delicate our skin is. While this scrub smells great and cleans amazingly it's way too abrasive!

This is my go to scrub not just for my face but the rest of my body. My pores look and feel clean and smaller. The rest of my skin is so soft with fewer breakouts. This product is always in my shower.

This is my favorite acne wash I've ever used. I always try to switch up my face washes so my skin doesn't get too used to one, but this one is definitely my favorite. It smells great and feels amazing on my skin. I have been using it for years now and I swear by it!

I've been buying this for years. It's perfect to get off dry flaky skin and leave your face smooth and fresh, without drying it out. It can be a little harsh though, so I wouldn't recommend daily use.

I don't see why people are complaining that it's too harsh. Maybe y'all are rubbing it in too rough? I received this item in my campus voxbox and love it. I use it almost every day. The smell is great and it really wakes me up in the morning, and leaves my face with a radiant glow,

I've been using this brand for as long as I can remember! I love the apricot scrub - I love how clean and refreshed it makes my skin feel. Since I wear make up daily, I love that it's a scrub that exfoliates as well. Love, love love!!!

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