I'm not a fan of this product because the granules are too big and instead of exfoliating i feel like is scratching my face. I lot of people use it as their cleanser but I would not recommended by it self.

I like this stuff - it always makes my feel fresh after I wash my face with it and I feel like the beads and scrub inside of it really dig deep into my skin. The only thing I don't like is how it's not a soapy face wash and makes my face feel a little too oily for just washing it.

I use this nightly to cleanse my face of makeup,dirt & oil and it works like a charm & great for my sensitive oily skin! The real pieces of apricot scrub off al the gunk and leaves my face silky smooth and smelling great after every use.

You should never use it on your face! Your skin in that area is too sensitive and this scrub will actually hurt more than it helps. However, I've found this product great for exfoliating my feet and hands.

This is a good scrub, it cleans well, smells good, and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. i wouldn't recommend using it daily though because I noticed if you use it too often it tends to dry your skin out.

I use this every time I wash my face than apply my cleanser. It keeps my breakouts to a minimum compared to when I only used a gentle cleaser without this exfoliant! Will always continue to use this brand(:

I grew up with this product. My mother used it & eventually I used it as well. Sadly, it's like the product just quit working. I know skin & your body can grow used to things, so maybe that is what happened.

I believe I actually got this in a VoxBox and fell in love. The exfoliation and sheer cleansing power of this product can be immediately felt and I definitely feel like I had clearer skin with regular use.
