This is my favorite face wash,scrub, exfolliant, everything! I used to have terrible skin. Dry and then oily dark spots and skin discolleration. St Ives apricot scrub has changed my life. Use twice a day and use moisturizer and you will see a huge difference!!

If you have sensitive or oily skin I do not recommend this product. It will make the skin irritated and may breakout with acne. However with dry skin, every one in a while it's a good product

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!

I found the scrub to be a little too abrasive, but it resulted in very soft skin. The smell was nice, and I only apply it in the shower because the exfoliating beads in it get a little messy. I got this in the campus voxbox, but I would buy it again at the store.
