This exfoliates and controls your blemishes so good! It kind of drys out my face but nothin a little moisturizer can't fix! It's worth it because this product is so good and affordable!

We always get this apricot scrub. I don't use it all the time but when I do it is effective. It meets my expectations every time and I bought it at target. I would recommend it to others.

So I've tried everything facial scrub there is and i always seem to come back to st ives. I love the way it makes my face feel and it really seems more vibrant after i use it. I have oily skin and this just takes away all shine but gives such a radiance.

I love to use this when my skin is breaking out. It's rough enough to get rid of dead skin. And makes you feel refreshed. I've been using this product for 5+ years

This product works and smells great!
The little exfoliater micro beards are not too harsh, but do their job!
I have noticed change in my face and skin within 3 uses.
I always feel refreshed after using this product!

This product has definitely improved my skins texture and visible blackheads. I use it after washing my face with Dove soap to exfoliate, and i feel it doesn't dry out my skin like other srubs have. I love it, though I'm not crazy about the scent, it works

Who couldn't love this scrub? It is absolutely flawless. The little beads are not too abrasive and the smell reminds me of summer which is always nice in the winter

This stuff is NOT good for you. It will cause micro-tears in your skin. You won't notice it during short term use, but it's really not good for your skin long term.
