This scrub is way too harsh on my face. I rigorously scrub my face or anything, but I find that the exfoliating factors are too extreme for my face, but I do use this to exfoliate other parts of my body (i.e legs, arms, underarms, etc). For the face, I don't recommend this scrub, but for it is great for specific parts of the body if your exfoliating loofa isn't doing the job.

This scrub smells really great with the apricot in it, but the exfoliants can be damaging to your skin. It leaves my skin feeling dry and irritated. A scrub like this should not be used daily.

In love with this product I use if every day in the shower. I truly believe this product works because when I don't use it I feel like my skins tarts so break out. The price of this product is so adorable and I do recommend this product to my mom my sister and friends

The unique thing about this product always was the apricot "pieces" you could feel when you rubbed it into your skin. My face always feels so much smoothr and cleaner after using. It has been a standard for me through many years.

My skin is hard to manage with a lot of washes making my screen break out but this one is perfect. It smells good and is a great exfoliater and the best wash for the price

I have loved this product ever since I've purchased it almost two years ago! I use it one or two times a month depending on how my skin feels. I get amazingly smooth skin after every use, it will always be a staple product for me.

I love this product, I get a lot of black head in my around my chin area and this helps me get rid of them quickly. It's a great exfoliant, be careful though because if you're a bit rough with it, it can dry you out. ( very rarely)

Not great for face in my opinion, so I just used it as an exfoliant for the rest of my body which works much better. I felt it was too abrasive to my face and the beads were too harsh. Very pleasant smell though. Highly recommend for body exfoliating but not for the face

This is a good backup cleanser, I wouldn't suggest using it everyday because the exfoliates can dry your skin out if used too often but I like the natural properties and overall a good product!
