Rub-a-dub-dub, leaves dead skin in the tub! My favorite go-to by far! Gentle with a great scent. And affordable!! Had my skin smiling with joy by the end of my shower!

I use this every day in the shower. It's a great way to take off the grime of the day. Although it's a scrub, it never dries out my face. My favorite facial scrub out there.

This facial scrub is a great cleanser. After using your face feels clean and refreshed. The scrub is not harsh to the skin, but it can cause dryness. A good moisturizer is needed after.

I absolutely love St. Ives apricot scrub. It was the first facial scrub/cleanser I had ever bought and I will continue to use it.
Not too harsh on the skin and smells great.

I still really like the apricot scrub from time to time even though I’ve moved on to some higher end products. It’s inexpensive and always made my skin feel smooth and soft.
