My sister left this in my shower one day while she was up for a visit so i decided to try it. Smell is horrible! Once you get past the smell it works great and i have used it more than once.

I have always like St. Ives. This is a great facial scrub. I wouldn't recommend to use it to often due to it could irritate your skin with the sand feeling stuff in it.

I used this thinking it would help the acne I had. I used it for a week with no change. I forgot to use it two days in a row and then my acne got worse. Disappointing.

Oh! I love facial scrubs and this one by far takes the cake! I enjoy the medicated one the best! There's no other feeling better than a smooth clean face and I love it!

This is the only scrub I use! It enough to exfoliate but not to harsh either. I use it once or twice a week and then a face mask after. St Ives products are fabulous!

This is a scrub, so I use it as a scrub. I like how the substance lets me scrub my face. (LOL)
I would rinse it off after and I'd feel fresh and clean, but sometimes dries up my face.
The apricot, though, isn't strong but faint so the smell is not a problem.

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!!

I love how well this product works and the fact that it's affordable! I typically use facial scrubs instead of normal cleansers and this is definitely one of my faves!

I got this scrub and was really looking forward to incorporating it into my daily beauty routine. It smelled delicious, but after using it a few times, I realized it wasn't really working. It didn't work well with my skin.

I love to use this in the shower on my skin and I feel so clean afterwards and from time to time I've used this in my hair too. FYI, just make sure to rinse very well.!
