When I was younger I loved this stuff! However trying it again recently I was not really impressed. It still smells great but the exfoliations are rough and don't feel too nice on your skin.

I like most of the St. Ives products. This scrub was a bit harsh for my skin type but I use it 2-3 times a week after an intense work out or day to get deep down into my pores. Always have had great results and no redness.

This is my favorite cleanser of all time! I have acne-prone skin and I use this every day after washing with a water-light cleanser. It keeps my skin dewy and soft; there's a real difference in the blackheads and blemishes immediately. Love this stuff.

I use this product once or twice a week when I want to properly exfoliate my skin, it leaves it smooth without much irritation though moisturizer afterwards is a must!

It's kind of a rough exfoliant. I personally prefer the smoothr bubbles for exfoliation. I like the smell, but it's thick a you really have to rinse your face a lot to get it off unless you're carefully using a thin layer.

The apricot scrub is one product that I always have at home. I bought this product from target. It is a good exfoliant without being too harsh and drying out your skin. I have been using this a few times a week for years and it has worked well for me.
