I feel like this scrub doesn't do anything for my skin. It's a little harsh so I feel like I'm actually harming my skin. The only plus is that it smells pretty good

Made my face super soft and it smells good too ! I can literally feel the scrub lifting off all the days dirt and grim and makeup, and leaves it feeling baby soft.

this product is great, I love the way it makes my skin feel clean and moisturized. It also gives me a very clean scrub with the apricot pieces. I have very acne prone skin and this helps.

This face wash is great because it gently scrubs all the make up and sweat from my pores and the bright smell wakes me up in the morning. If you have dry skin I wouldn't wash with this every day as the exfoliating ingredients could dry you out even more.

I love how this product makes my skin soft and it clear up my acne. I have lots of these. And it works so well on me. And its cheap.

A facial scrub should have smaller grains than this to avoid damaging the skin. This is a terrific BODY scrub, however, because the grains do not dissolve. Excellent for use on the legs or anywhere prior to shaving!

I used this years ago when I was a teen. St. Ives works so well and I like that I can feel the scrubbers. It smells great, works awesome, and is gentle on my skin.

I've found that this scrub has beads that are too large and do too much damage to my pores instead of cleansing them. I would only recommend this product if you have non sensitive skin.

This is one of my faves! A lot of facial cleansers tend to make me break out worse than not washing my face at all. This didn't dry out my skin and really improved my skin tone and dry skin problem! Highly recommend!

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
