I love this product! I use it everyday. I get really bad black heads in my T-Zone, but this diminishes them little by little. I love the feel of the scrub, the smell of it, and the look of my skin afterwards, after all, it does take care of my dry skin too! I even use it on my body!

One of my favorite drug store buys. It s a must have for combo/oily skin. I love how it smells and it leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. I use it once or twice a week to keep my skin looking new.

I use this everyday, it gives my skin a beautiful glow,, that people often ask me what products do I use on my face. I have to say its the one and only face scrub I will continue to use well into my old age.

I must say for how cheap this stuff is its the one i always seem to run back to when the expensive stuff fails me. For under $4 its a great exfoliater and only needs minimal water to create a great lather.

I have been using this product off and on for years. Its great as an exfoliator, but I don't ever notice much of a difference between using this and any other facial cleaner. Other than my skin is softer.

I've used St. Ives apricot scrub for years to exfoliate my skin (face and body) and to help keep breakouts at bay. The scent is terrific, it doesn't overdry so long as you don't overuse, and it's affordable.

This product help me clear up my acne on both my face and chest. It also worked well to exfoliate my legs before shaving, which helped me get a much closer shave. It was very affordable and smells fantastic.
