5. Use 3 to 4 times a week (depending on skin) for best results.

DID YOU KNOW Humans lose around 500 million skin cells every day, meaning dead skin can build up pretty quickly. Many think that weekly exfoliation is enough, and it's a good starting point for a newbie. Most experts advise that you exfoliate two to three times per week — as long as your skin can handle it.

I haven’t used this since I was a teenager and for good reason. This is awful to use on your face. It is so harsh and abrasive, it will completely wreck your skin barrier and cause you to break out further. Do not use this product! Although, it does work well as a foot scrub...

I love this scrub have been using it since high school. It is light enough to not irritate my skin but actually exfoliates. I have tried other brands but I always either get my skin irritated or it is too light.

I don’t use it for my face (it can damage face because it’s too rough), but it works well to scrub body like legs before shaving

In all honesty, I‘ve had excellent results with the St. Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub, but I would not recommend it because of the walnut shell added in it which causes micro tears in the skin. I’ve used this product for years and a little bit does go a long way, so I’ve never had to repurchase it. Every time I would use it (typically every other day or every few days since physical exfoliation can be quite harsh on our delicate skin), it would leave my skin smoother than ever and texture-free. I wish St. Ives would reformulate it to give the same results without damaging the skin! I no longer use it for my face but have instead been trying to finish up the product by using it as a body exfoliater. If you’re looking for a good exfoliater, I would recommend trying a chemical one such as the [product:the-ordinary-aha-30%-bha-2%-peeling-solution] which gives similar results without doing long-term damage!

I’ve been using this for years and I never know if my skin just gets used to it over time or if it actually works.. I always re buy the product and Everytime I use it after a drunk night out or when I feel like my makeup isn’t completely off I feel like it cleanses my skin for some reason it is kind of harass on sensitive skin

St. Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub Do you recommend it, it is very aggressive for the skin and I do not recommend it?Do you recommend it, it is very aggressive for the skin and I do not recommend it??

No! I agree, it is too aggressive. It dries out your skin causing your skin to make more oil which can get clogged under the dry skin.
