I love using this product. I feel renewed every time I use it, which is a must every day! I would highly recommend this product. My skin is very sensitive, I have eczema and it doesn't effect it what so ever.

If anyone has a problem with facial products making your face oily after you use them, you should defiantly try this out. It made it my face really smooth, I really didn’t even have to use a moisturizer after

I think this product is very good.... I use this product every other day, to help my skin to look great.... It also help my skin to have a beautiful glow to it. When I use this product, I feel it is working and just a really great scub as well....

Guys, not only do they test on animals but their products have been proven (there was even a lawsuit against them) to cause tiny micro tears in your skin speeding up the aging process they claim to be stopping

I used this product for a long time and thought it was great! Reasonable price and does its job. It actually is not good for the skin, those beads are too harsh and end up making microscopic tears at your skin. Also I've read that the beads are not disintegrating and are polluting lakes!

I can't tell you how many times I've bought and reused this product in the last 6 months. It's amazing, smells amazing and you feel even more amazing after you use it! Was great on pricing and would recommend!

Not good for people with big pores like myself. Tends to just make them worse. The exfoliant part of it also made my face much more oily than normal! It does smell nice, as a plus

I've literally been using this for years and it has not failed me! It controls breakouts and exfoliates my skin to reduce black heads and make my skin feel super fresh! I will continue to purchase this product.

This St. Ives Apricot scrub is awesome!! At only about 3 dollars it works wonders. Don't waste your money on the expensive stuff because this is really all you need. I love the fresh smell it has to it too. And it's gentle enough to use everyday.
