I love this!! Its awesome and feels fresh and clean! Its smells good but after you dry your face it feels really tight and dry so you have to apply a moisturizer right after you dry your face.

I have incredibly oily skin and this absolutely tames it. Takes out my blackheads at the start and leaves me with fresh smooth skin all day, seems like a commercial too good to be true, but real!

I always reach for this scrub when I feel I need to really clean out my pores. The apricot scent is nice and doesn't offend my over dramatic sinuses. The scrub isn't too harsh and leaves my face feeling so soft and refreshed.

Love this product! It's helped me suppress my milia skin condition. Leaves skin feeling clean and smooth. Smells great too! I use it 2-3 times a week to keep my skin feeling and looking great.

It's one of the few face washes I use. I love the roughness of the apricot scrubbies and the fact that it really helps to slough off that dry skin we're all so fond of in these winter months. 😀

I have been using this product for years and it is the only thing that works for me. I have tried other products even the expensive ones people swear by. An even those don't measure up to this.

Works great to exfoliate and really get all of the dead skin, oil, and makeup off of my face! Wouldn't recommended for daily use because it is an exfoliator, however I use it every other day.

After using the green tea face wash from st ives, this does not beat it, i feel as if the beads in this face wash doesn't crush if you get what i mean but other then that its a decent face wash (:

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