I like St. Ives products. This one I've used several times before but I find that over time it seems to lose its effectiveness and begins to make my face feel dry. I do use other products from this line though.

Only exfoliator I use and if you know what I have been through to find just the right products then you will understand it is that good! Just don't press to hard or it can be rough on your skin.

Trying this scrub from my campus vox box was awesome. I love the exfoliating feature because it really worked without being too aggressive. It made my face feel so fresh!

So I use this daily, my mother has used it for years and I got hooked as a teen. There is something about the beadlike texture that makes it feel like its working. It never dries out my skin, it cleans and exfoliates well, better then many over the counter products.

I prefer the tangerine grapefruit scent of this saint Ives scrub because it's softer on your face but the original apricot scrub is good as well just don't like it so rough

I've used this product for years--it's by far the best product I've used for exfoliation. However, I only try to use it once a week as it seems to open up my pores more and allow more blackheads to form. Don't use it too often or it will make acne and blackheads worse!

One of my favorite exfoliating scrubs of all time! Gentle but rough enough to get rid of all the dead skin. Love the smell...never left my skin feeling dry. Great product!
