This is by far one of the best face scrubs i have tried on the market (and trust me, i have tried A LOT of face washes/cleansers/etc.). smells great, feels great, makes my skin glow.

This product is good at times but I do notice that if I haven't used it in a while it makes my face breakout and get red. It can be a bit harsh but it does leave my face feeling clean, but not worth the risk for me

I love the St. Ives Blemish and Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub! It is a great scrub. It smells amazing and is great for getting that layer of yucky skin off to help your face heal. Great for men as well!

I used to love this but don't care for it anymore. It irritates my skin and doesn't actually exfoliate very well. It does smell pretty good though and it's not an overpowering scent either. Might work better for someone else than it did for me.

I absolutely hate the smell of apricot and this product kind of burns your face...that's not good. if you changed the scent and maybe used less scrubbing beads it would be better.

This stuff is great! The only complaint I have is that it is a little rough on my skin. It smells really great and my skin feels good after I use it. It's not very expensive either.

I love this product! Great scent and it feels soooo good when your scrubbing your face with it. The only thing i can complain about is it does dry my face out when i use it daily.

I'm a really big fan of products that aren't just really smooth, but you can actually scrub your face with them. After you wash your face with this you can actually feel that your face is cleaner and smoothr.
