I have combination/dry skin, and I struggle to find a balance between cleaning my pores thoroughly without drying out my skin. If my skin is too dry, it flakes and peels, which leads me to touch my face, which leads to breaking out. But if my skin's not dry enough, I get clogged with oil and break out anyway.
This is the first face wash I've found that gets the balance just right. It exfoliates my dry, dead skin away and cleanses my pores without being too harsh or rough. The rest of the Apricot Scrub products are far too harsh and gritty for my skin.
If your skin is sensitive to the soap part of the scrub rather than the exfoliating part of the scrub, you're probably better off with the Daily Microdermabrasion scrub. The formula is less scented and the grains are smoother. I find that I simply like the feel of this scrub better than the microderm scrub.
