I think they changed the formula of this product? because i was reading the reviews on this product and noticed from 1 point and back, many people said it was slippery gel like feeling and did not do anything for their skin. but now it's very creamy and nice! so i really like it. i would say this is definitely gentle enough for everyday use, but also prevents pimples very well. it also doesn't dry out my skin which is a big plus. i use it everynight before using my Retin-A, (i always use exfoliator before acne treatment, they help the treatments work better for me).


all in all, this is definitely a product i woudl gladly repurchase if i wasn't fickle with skincare products (hahah), but i think i will try something else after, because i always believe that there are better products out that will become my absolute HG and work perfectly for my skin.

Use it on your body is good, not for the face even with this gentle formula for ensitive skin. My skin type is acne-prone but not too sensitive, so I choose products that help my acne prone skin and NOT to irritate it. I used both St.Ives Clay masque and Hydroxy masque, excellent products. However, this scrub is too strong for the face, even though I used minimal and diluted with alot of water and be very gentle on my face, it irritated my skin and broke me out.

This makes a good daily facial scrub because it is very gentle but I find it a bit too gentle. I use it more of as a facial cleanser rather than than a scrub though. This would be very good for people with sensitive skin because the beads are very non-abrasive. The gelly-like texture is kind of cool and the price is very cheap. It's good as an extra gentle scrub but not right for me.

This wasn't quite what I was looking for - the texture was too gloppy for me and the scrubbing power just a tad too weak :(

This scrub is so gentle, it did absolutely nothing for my skin. It didn't clean and it certainly didn't scrub anything. I used lots and lots of it at one time, but it just felt like I was slathering on water.

This is good! It still exfoliates without being too rough like I think the regular Apricot Scrub can be somtimes. This is safe enough to use everyday-and the Jojoba beads in it are nice and round and wont scratch up your face. It smells nice and fruity too! This is a good one!

I really like this scrub--it is the only one I use. I've re-purchased this near a dozen times. I have oily, but sensitive skin and this is perfect for it. I use it in the a.m. in lieu of cleanser--it gets my face clean and exfoliated. I really like it, and it's so cheap!
