This is great fdor those who have oily skin. It fries the oil and kills the bacteria. It's also great for a cheap-o, but not so cheap quality body wash.
Much more suited for the body than for the face! Anyone with even remotely sensitive skin should steer clear of a product with such harsh ingredients (walnut shells for exfoliation) and such a strong fragrance (like bad hotel soap).
I have been using this for at least 15 years and I rarely have a blemish. I use it on my legs before I shave to exfoliate as well. I love this cheap effective product.
I've used this scrub for YEARS! It's a good basic scrub, but it's now too abrasive since I developed aggresive acne due to stress. It smells great, and you get a lot for what you pay for! I can't use it on my face anymore, but it makes a great cheap body scrub!
I have been using the apricot scrub for years now and it really is fantastic. It removes surface dryness without being too harsh, it smells nice and it's dirt cheap. If it dries out your skin or feels harsh, try the one for sensitive skin and/or moisturize afterwards.
I LOVE THIS! Its the best thing ever. Makes my skin so silky and soft. I def. will keep buying this.
Believe it or not this product works great on your feet!! It was way too harsh for my acne prone skin after a while and well...I was resourceful and used it on my feet, elbows, and hands. It's a great exfoliant.
For a long time I was addicted to scrubs, and this was one of my favorites. I forgot to pack it on a week long trip and after going a week without it I noticed that my skin felt better than ever. Now I use Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant daily and Body Shop honey & oat a few times a week (winter months only) and my skin has never looked better. The abrasive scrub just isn't for me. continued >>
I have dry skin, and sometimes my cheeks flake ever so slightly. I use this scrub once a week and my skin looks and feels revived afterward. I follow up with Ponds night cream and my skin feels so soft. This stuff is really grainy so you have to use it carefully - you can apply as you see fit. For the body it does wonders. I don't have a lot of money to spend on beauty products so I first bought this because how cheap it was - I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it works great too. Who knows if I'll experiment when I can afford other ones, but at least I know I can always come back to this.
