This is a great exfoliant with an awesome fruity smell.  It is a little rougher than other others exfoliant, but if you can get past the roughness during use, the way it leaves your skin is worth it.

This is a exceptional product. Its budget friendly & is gently enough for everyday use. Definitely a winning combination. I love to try things and always go back to this scrub.

This is a good basics grab. It is a little rough on the skin say have to be careful not to exfoliate too hard or too long. But I did enjoy this product and it lasted a long time

Works really well as a bi-nightly exfoliant for my combination skin. I did notice if I used it every night my face was over producing oil. Would recommend as a way to maintain clear skin rather than as a treatment. Also works really well to remove hair dye/ stains from your skin

Love the sandy texture, nice exfoliater. Doesn't smell bad, leaves face so smooth, very refreshing. Definitely see the difference in skin. Takes away dead cells, leaves face and body like a babes bottom.

I have been using the St. Ives Apricot Scrub for blemish and blackhead control since I was a teen and I can tell you its the best. It has by far the best deep exfoliation compared to the other St. Ives Scrubs. If you have acne or blemishes, it is even better! A plus all the way!

It's not my favorite because it doesn't dry my skin out too bad but it still dries it out none the less and I can't have that happen because my skin is dry enough without it.

I bought this from heb. A local grocery store. I used it for about 2 weeks then my face started to flake and got random red spots all over. Though maybe it was because I wasn't using a moisturizer. So I tried that and it was still splotchy. So I switched to something more natural.

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