The Classic Scrub that works
I've been using this ever since I was 5, I would sneak a dollop from the bathroom cabinet. It has worked so well as the grains are not too fine and not too harsh, leaving the skin perfectly exfoliated. It smells delicious and just like apricots. It lathers well so a little goes a long way making the product very good value for money. On the "blemish control" side it does fight blemishes however be sure to use it only once or twice a week as it can be very drying, stripping skin of natural oils.

I have been using this scrub since i was 11! It has kept my skin clean & fresh for years! Granted that it can be harsh on the skin f you scrub to hard its still a great product, I found that if you use a small amount and rub very gently in circular motions and splash with cold water its perfect!

this is a great product, if you use in moderation, i suggest using this every other day or even once a week depending on your skin type. it worked well for me so i im able to use it every second day, it leaves my skin so smooth and visibly it reduced my pores. and also it smells great!

Way too harsh - absolutely terrible product
This scrub is honestly one of the most harshest roughest facial scrubs I have ever come across in my life. Bits of nut shells for exfoliation? i was shocked. I even tried it a few times to be sure, I tried using it as lightly and gentle as I could. but the texture is SO rough and it leaves your skin red raw. It even felt like it was going to cause abrasions or bleeding on my skin. I don't know how this scrub made it into a bottle for a facial product. I threw this out because it was that bad. The texture and consistency of it was jsut ridiculous, it was literally so rough and harsh that it was acutally PAINFUL to use.

Good exfoliant, albeit slightly harsh
Quite effective for exfoliation, I use it around 2 times a week since I think it's a bit harsh for daily use! The claims about blemish control is a bit dubious, since it's only staying on your skin for a few moments - but this product is quite decent for exfoliation. Smell is also very nice.

This is a really great all round exfoliator with a subtle apricot scent and creamy texture. While it helps maintain fresher and clearer looking skin it may be a little harsh for every day use. A suggestion that is may be better suited for people with less sensitive skin as it can be quite abrasive.

Great Exfoliator but abit drying
The scrub is a grainy (sand like) creamy which is great for exfoliating. This scrub is great for removing dead skin and blackheads but it is very drying and harsh when used too frequently.
Found it best when used once or twice a week and moisturising is a must.
But as for me, my skin is sensitive and easily breakouts so i found it best to use it once a week, gently and not scrub too hard.

Softer and smoother skin
I've heard a lot about this scrub before i finally bought it, and i must say it is the perfect product to add to your skincare routine. Using 1-3 times a week will give you fresher, brigher skin! The smell is very pleasant, and it exfoliates very well. However, just be very gentle when exfoliating because it can be a tad harsh for sensitive skin. Exfoliate by scrubbing in a light circular motion and do not add any pressure.
Overall a great product, will repurchase!

I've just come back to this facial scrub and I'm wondering why I ever stopped using it.
I immediately noticed the difference to my skin.
The fine granuals in the scrub are gentle and it foams up easily.
I use it a couple of times a week and its done my skin the world of good. Love that clean, feeling you get after using it.
The smell is not to over powering either just a hint of the apricot.
What I also like is that its cheap so doesn't hurt my beauty budget.
