One of my favorite facial cleansers!! I find myself going back to this product a lot. The exfoliating beads in the scrub feel great on my skin and it cleans out my pores so nicely!

As a person with many skin allergies, I have to be very careful about what I use to get clean. This scrub is great! It gets my face clean and glowing without making me itchy at all.

St Ives apricot scrub takes me back to being a middle school kid when I had the beginnings of zits. The smell and the texture is the best thing to scrub away the dirtiness of the day

This scrub works wonders. It isn't painful to use, and it leaves your skin feeling so soft. I've been using it for several years, and never considered switching!

I use it four times a week religiously. It tightens and brightens dark spots and it feels amazing once you're done. It's definitely worth the money and lasts a decent amount of time.

I've always used this in my shower whenever to clean my shoulders and face. I like that it exfoliates and gets rid of the dirt collected through out the day. It makes me feel like its actually doing something.

A little abrasive, but the overall quality is great! Have been using this product for about 6 months now...I have sensitive skin and it seems to not irritate my skin as much as other exfoliant products have.
