This product is very hit and miss with my skin. I'm very sensitive and am prone to buring if I don't use the right products. Sometimes this doesn't burn my skin, sometimes it does

I’ve used this product off and on since I was a kid and I still love using it. So easy to apply and massage in your skin and then rinse off. Love the fact that it does not use micro beads, only walnut shells.

This product is not bad it smells very good. And it tends to be within a good price range for a good product. I like this product because it has the little beads in it

I have been using this product for several years now. I feel like it is a great addition to anyones beginner skin care routine. It is affordable and gets the job done. It is a harsh exfoliator that penetrates the pores to cleans the skin and fight acne. It is a harsh product if you rub your face too hard or use a strong spin brush. For a gentler use, I would recommend washing your face in soft circular motions or using a soft bristle head on your spin brush. My only con is that this product is not very moisturizing. It can end up drying your skin if you do not moisturizer very well after your use. I would recommend this product for someone with oily or combo skin with light to medium acne.  St. Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub
