Love this product. Tried it for the first time because I had a coupon. But it works fantastic! Makes my skin really smooth and gives me a natural glow! Smells really good and doesn't dry out my skin.

Love how gentle this wash is on my skin! I have very sensitive skin and also very dry skin. This helps smooth out my skin and control my breakouts without making my dry skin any worse than it already is.

The beads in this product really do exfolite but not enough. I would still find dead skin on my face even after i used it. This product smells really good and is inexpensive. I definitely recommend it.

Been using this for years with great results. Leaves skin smooth and soft while helping to control breakouts. Only complaint would be that it is too harsh for me to use daily.

I exfoliate with this scrub a couple of times a week, and I really like how bright and fresh my skin appears afterward. I do have to be careful to not over scrub which can cause my skin to get irratated.

I absolutely love this stuff! I borrowed a bit from my roommate when I had a really bad breakout and it helped so much. I use it when I either see or sense a pimple coming on and it clears it right up!

Whick,if you're not overly sensitive,will look like a "glow" right after,but can cause sensitivity especially to sunlight if you use it too much. I use it on my legs before I shave,as I got it as a gift.

This scrub saved my face. It exfoliated off dead skin helped fight my breakouts all while not being harsh enough to make me peel; what more could you ask for! I also loved the clean scent of the apricot:)

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