I guess this product works differently for other people because it works great on me. It leaves my skin feeling soft and blemish free. First of all if you're going to use this scrub you massage it gently not harshly.

I used this product a long time ago and actually purchased it again yesterday. I've been having issues with breakouts and blackheads so I figured I would go back to an old favorite. I like to feel that my exfoliator is actually scrubbing my skin and this does. I'm looking forward to using it again.

This scrub does WONDERS for my skin without drying it out. It exfoliates my skin perfectly and leaves my skin so soft and smooth. It's the perfect pick-me-up for uneven, dry and dull skin

I have used this product for quite some time and it has worked very well for me. The smell is nice and it gives me a clean and fresh feeling. I use it to remove makeup sometimes as well.

I love this! You think your face is clean now, try the apricot scrub! I love how clean it makes my face & how clean I can feel it. I just cannot find the original one I love at any of the stores anymore. Which sucks!

I tend to buy St Ives because their products are appealing and affordable. I picked up this scrub a while ago and use it once or twice a week. It's comfortable, and smells nice. A good basic scrub for the price. Giving it a B because it's nothing special.

I've been using this face scrub since I was young. Always exfoliates and leaves your face feeling fresh and clean. Never dries out skin. Has a nice smell as well.
