I love St. Ives apricot scrub! It always keeps my skin smooth and soft, and really helps prevent breakouts. Great to use on shoulders and chest too to get extra smooth skin.

I have used this for years. My face always feels soft and smooth after each use. My skin care products go on much better as does my make up. I always have a glow after use. This is a great product!!

This is a product I repurchased until I realized what it was doing to my skin. It was too harsh of an exfoliant for me. I found that it didn't do much expect essentially scratch my skin and leave it slightly irritated, but not much better.

I guess you can say it works, but only on certain skin type. I've been using this product for a couple of months now and I do see fewer blackheads and blemishes but I'm still looking for a better product!

I have been using this product since I was in my teens. This is an amazing exfoliant. It doesn't irritate your skin like most other exfoliants. The grits are super fine and good enough to use twice a week.

I purchase this scrub regularly and love how soft my skin feels. I also like that it takes a more 'natural' approach, but still contains the medication to help clear blemishes.

I used to use this a lot when i was a teen and my skin was oily, but now that I have combination skin it feels a bit harsh. I just use sugar and a clean and clear acne cleanser.

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