The product states that it doesn't over dry but I've found (with my skin type anyway) that is very drying, I also had quite a few really bad breakouts while using it. It does smell nice though.

Couldn't ask for a better product! When I went to cosmetology school we used this. When I left school I had to go get some for myself. Works great and I love to use it with the mint julip mask.

St Ives is my all time favorite face scrub. It's creamy and at the same time rough enough to get rid of dead skin and blackheads. The results are fresh clear soft skin.

This product smells great. The exfoliator does get deep down but it does dry out my skin. I use a moisturizer which helps. It's a little pricey but not too bad. I would recommend giving it a try.

I have used this scrub for years because of its exfoliation abilities. I have fairly sensitive skin, but this product doesn't make me break out. I can use it once a day and not have any problems.

I love this product so much I use it twice a week because it is an exfoliator and you should not use it constantly. I have some try patches on my skin and I use it only on those areas and after using it my skin feels so smooth!

I love this stuff and always have! I have really crazy skin with patches of all skin types it seems. This always seems to get the closest to evening my skin texture out!

The scrubs smells good to me, I love the smell. However I do agree with some of the other comments. It is too abrasive for my skin. It's way to harsh. I wouldn't recommend it for everyday use.

I am not really a fan of the apricot scrubs because I think the small pieces can scratch your skin. It's strange to make a blemish control product with something that could make blemishes worse.

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