I've had a problem with black heads on my nose or years! And I picked up this sample size casually at the store not really knowing much about the product. After a few weeks of continuous use I started to notice a difference and my pores weren't as noticeable.

I like how it is a light scent and my skin feels nice and clean afterwards. I just feel like it is a little too rough at times. Maybe the pieces are a bigger it don't know but I just try to wash my face lightly with it.

This is my holy grail for sure! I love this so much it's amazing I have nothing but amazing things to say about it. It got rid of so many pimples I had on face. It cleaned deep down into my pores and I feel as if it also exfoliated my skin at the same time!

I can't stand using this on my face. It feels like I'm rubbing sandpaper on my face. I don't mind it for the body I still feel it's really abrasive but at least I still feel like I have skin left when used on the body.

I love this product! It's a deep exfoliator, but it's not so rough that I can't use it daily. It's very affordable and easy to find at most drug stores! The best part is that the exfoliators are natural instead of plastic like in a lot of other acne products.

I have used this going on for about 14 years now! It has just want you need/want, and nothing you don't. The gentle fragrance is nice. I love the apricot pieces that rub away the dull surface. I love this and will continue to use it as long as it is around!

This was my favorite beauty product for over a decade. It worked extremely well and made my skin feel wonderful. I stopped using it once they sold their company to Unilever, who tests on animals and uses animal ingredients in their products. It's a shame.

Wash with this every morning.
Pros: You will feel awake. Removes oil and dead skin, and also prevents future pimples.
Cons: If you you leave it open to air, it can dry up. So keep that bottle closed!
Love this product, I had a longgg experience with this.

I really like this product because it leaves my skin feeling very soft! I also like that it smells really good. I've been using this product for a couple of months but then once I finished it I would always go back for more and I would seem to run across it.

I love this scrub! It gets the job done and does a great one at that! It's also very inexpensive! I love that it's made of natural ingredients and doesn't include parabens. It always leaves my face feeling fresh and clean.

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