I have had great results with the St. Ives apricot scrub. It gives a fresh expholiating feeling but can be rough for those with sensitive skin. It smells great and isn't very expensive.

I first used this at a friends house and let me tell you I have very noticeable pores/blackheads, the first couple of weeks that I used this it was great. I have since then been in look for a better one, this works best when used every once in a while. But it is still a staple in my bathroom!!

I really love this stuff however there are cheaper knock-offs like the Wal-mart brand Equate that work just as good. This is seriously the only product that helped me clear up my acne when I used to have it bad.

Another HG product for me! I absolutely love this stuff! I tend to break out on my chin sometimes and this product removes all traces of blemishes! Exfoliating while washing is a plus!

I have combination/oily skin. This scrub is not harsh and it makes your skin feel smooth. I believe this cost about $4-5 not bad for a good, drug store product (:

I used on face and love the scent but when I talked to the dermatologist they said that the apricot shells that are used for exfoliating are too big for the gentle skin for the face. But this is a great body scrub!

I really enjoyed this product, but I do not recommend using this product daily. The scrub is a bit harsh, but great to use every other day or so. The smell is refreshing and leaves your face feeling rejuvenated.

This product is great! I always look forward to staying with my sister because it is what she uses and my face always feels amazing after using it. I don't purchase it myself because for me it is a little expensive, but I can see how it's worth it.

I love this exfoliater! It's quite cheap and it smells great! It definitely gets all the dead skin off my face. I wouldn't say it treats acne but it sure removes dead skin. I love it!

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
