I have very sensitive and acne prone skin but surprisingly this worked very well for me one week where i had to substitute my usual cleanser for this. No break outs and does exactly what it says. It might dry your face a bit, if you use it more than 3 times a week!

Love the product. It leaves my skin smooth and feeling clean. My only complaint is that it leaves my skin dry and I've seen little difference in the amount and size of the blackheads on my face. Less overall breakouts though!

This is much too harsh for the face and can actually be incredibly damaging, because of the large abrasive granules. However, this is excellent for exfoliation of the body and will leave you soft, smooth and smelling amazing!!

I have been using this for the past six months already and love it! I use every other day to help get deep into my pores and cleanse them out. It does a great job without drying out my skin. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and also works great for removing my make-up! Overall I would say that it is a great product to have. You also can't go wrong with its price.

I like how this scrub makes my face feel clean and soft. It's very exfoliating and not too expensive. Some of my other family members like this too. However, you may not like this product if you don't like rough-feeling scrubs.

I have used this for years. Although its not as hard on my acne as face washes that contain peroxide (my skin is as bad as a teenager at 30) it is a great exfoliator and doesn't dry out my skin even though I use it every day.

I really like this particular facial scrub. It smells great, has bits of apricot in it, and you can really feel it working on your face when you use it. But it is not too harsh for my skin which can sometimes be sensitive.

If i have a blemish in the night, I would put the scrub on and the next morning it would either be gone or less red and bumpy.I will always be repurchising this product

As a Cosmetologist I know that fine apricot can be harsh on the skin. It actually scratches the Epidermis. You won't see the effects until you've been using this product for quite some time. As a teenager I loved it, the smell everything about it. But as an adult I educated myself and it can be harmful to the skin!

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