I use this at night to exfoliate after a long day. Its gentle on the skin and leaves you replenished. The packageing is a squeeze tube, so it isn't hard to get out. I would definitely repurchase.

This is a good product for teens who are just starting to get blemishes or people who have few blemishes. It definitely makes your face feel clean and it smells very good.

I'm not one to buy facial products from anywhere except spas, but this is one of the few that actually makes my skin feel more smooth and gets rid of my blackheads. A must-buy!

My face doesn't feel clean unless I'm using this! There are usually store brand versions of this available but they are never as good, they always smell terrible too. This face wash has the perfect texture and a nice clean scent.

The beads on this product feel like you really do take off all of the scum off face. The smell is quite nice also. It's more of a thick cream feel but your face will feel so much cleaner afterwards.

I've tried lots of different cleansers, scrubs, etc over the years. I often end up buying the St Ives apricot scrub when I need something reliable as it works pretty well and has a nice smell. I don't find it too drying, either.

My boyfriend and I use this product every day. It is refreshing and it exfoliates without being too harsh on your skin. My face is always soft afterwards. It doesn't seem to dry my face out either.

You can always find this in my drawer of beauty products. I use it about once a week to exfoliate and deep clean. It never irritates my skin, however I would not recommend it for daily use. Love it!
