Smells great, very gritty and removes dead skin (doesn't really remove my blackheads). Will leave your skin very soft but using it too much can make your skin really dry. I would use maybe half the week.

I love this scrub. Everything about it is perfect. I have been using it for about a month now, and i notice that my breakouts have been less and less. The smells of the apricots makes it enjoyable to use.

This product is probably awesome if you don't have sensitive skin, but it definitely irritated my face. It absolutely clears out blackheads, but is a little too drying for me.

The scrubby beads have changed for this and the cleanser itself feels a little more greasy than it used to. I don't like the formula change because it created more blockheads. The jar formula changed too.

This is a great product for the price, a classic standby. I try new face products but over the years I keep coming back to St Ives. I love the exfoliation and it leaves my skin smooth and fresh feeling.

After use left my face tight and extremely dry. As far as being a blackhead remover it did it's job. The smell was good and seemed to exfoliate well but super dried out my skin.

I used this for many years and while I liked it I felt that it hurt my skin over time. I really feel that this is not meant to be used on a regular basis. It will start to irritate skin if used too much.

I have tried many brands over the last 17 years; and this is the only one that has not only cleared up my skin but has prevented further breakouts. I have found that it's gentle enough to use twice a day. Great product for a great price.

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