My skin does not like this. I bought this because the reviews were great. Day one, pimples appeared. Day two, more pimples appeared. I thought it was a product you would have to use for a week to see results but I continued to used and never saw good results. I did love the smell and the softness of my skin after using.

I love this Apricot Scrub. It feels amazing on your skin while you are rubbing it in. The scent is very light. It does not break me out after use it gives my skin a nice glow. It is very good at cleaning your pores and removing dirt and makeup. Very amazing for the cost.

I know you think its scrub away your dead skin but its actually just tearing it up. NO it will NOT clear up your acne scars but it WILL make them worse.

Please please please don't use this

This scrub isn't too harsh on my sensitive skin. After a couple of uses you will notice blemishes and spots clearing up. I love that the exfoliants are all natural, and in various sizes. Your face will feel refreshed after using this scrub. Gentle enough to use every day.

I use it everyday. I usually wash my face with this scrub when I hope in the shower each morning. It's makes my face feel very refreshed. The smell is pleasant, works ok to ward off blemishes. If you are someone who has bad acne this alone won't be enough to control it.

I really liked this cleanser although it was a little rough than what I'm used to. I got this in my Campus VoxBox and decided to give it a try. It left my face feeling smooth clean and had a pleasant smell. My only issue was the granules which could be a win or miss depending on the person and that was the case for me. I guess I will get used to it as I will continue to use it.

I absolutely LOVE this scrub! Smells wonderful, works great for my skin type (which is EXTREMELY oily) & doesn't leave any type of residue on my face once I rinse it off! I've been buying this scrub since I was in my early teenage years & will continue to do so for life.

I like this scrub for when my skin feels like it needs a good exfoliating cleanser or when I have clogged pores. It works best for me in the shower because otherwise it is a bit messy and difficult to rinse off completely in the sink. This leaves your skin feeling smooth and removes most of the dead skin from the surface.

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