This scrub is excellent for reducing pores and its gentle enough for sensitive skin. I like how it feels on my face it and it has a pleasant smell. Over all great product for the price.

This kind of abrasive exfoliation is bad for any skin type, I’ve learned, and exfoliation should be done at the cellular level using AHAs and BHAs. This smells good, but it’s not good for any skin type on the face

This was my go to face wash for years & years. I liked that it was a scrub & the apricot smell. It’s rather inexpensive for only $4 a tube. It seemed gentle to my skin. I think this probably a good first face wash.

Since I have a lot of acne I use this and it clears up my acne within 2 uses! It’s really does smell like apricot! The only thing I didn’t really like was it was so thick and it would always get clogged in the lid.

This is hands down my favorite face wash. The exfoliation is just right for my sensitive skin. It is abrasive enough to remove dirt, but isn’t too rough. I love the smell and feel fresh and clean when I’m finished.

I like the smell of this product, but I feel like it is way too harsh on my face to use on a regular basis. There are a lot of other acne treatments out there in my opinion that do a better job than this product.

This face wash is extremely exfoliating. I used to use this product all the time and it does an excellent job cleaning my face but after a good amount of use back to back it started to dry out the skin on my face.

This stuff is so amazing! I use this twice a week, in the shower, and my skin looks and feels amazing. I have been using this for years and would recommend this to anyone that has sun spots or uneven pigmentation.
