I typically refuse to apply facial products on my skin, however I am not opposed to scrubs or peels. I usually go for other fragrances like pomegranate, cucumber, or coconut. However, I liked the apricot. It feels like tiny specs of sand, but leaves your skin feeling clean.

I really like this product. I use it 1 or 2 times a week and it keeps my skin smooth and blemish free. I think of it as my preventative maintenance. I don't think my skin can get any better than this.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I have acne prone skin and it does help drying and clearing your skin. After you rinse you can feel the difference since the formulation for me is not harsh on my skin.

I love this scrub as it leaves my face feeling clean and smooth. Unfortunately I can only use it 1-2 times a week as it dries out my skin. Maybe someday there will be a sensitive skin formula! #freshface #smoothskin

This is currently in my shower, I use it a few times a week but not everyday. It's great for when you really want to exfoliate your skin and it has a subtle scent I've been using this stuff for years!

I love using this product. I have been using this for years and it gets the job done. My face feels clean and smooth afterwards. Great value and great price! I used a generic store brand once and it is not the same. I will always use this and will repurchase when I run out.

This scrub left my skin feeling raw and burnt. I used it gently once in the morning before makeup application and it brought out the redness in my skin which is usually calm. I did feel a deep clean, but at an expense, I wouldn't use this scrub often, maybe just in the summer to remove a sunscreen or heavy makeup BEFORE bed

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