I use this every. single. day. in the shower! It keeps my face smooth, and I also use it on the back of my arms and on my chest if I have any kind of skin irritation.

I love that it scrubs away all the dirt and oils of the day without being too harsh. and helps smooth and soften skin and lessen the appearance of blackheads if not removing them completely

The St. Ives Apricot scrub is one of my favorites. It’s easy to use and exfoliate my skin. I have repurchased this several times and plan to keep buying this product.

My favorite facial scrub. gentle enough while still getting the job done. nice oil free feel. washes off well and feels smooth immediately. definitely helpful in fighting acne and i think it has even lightened my scars!

The first several times I used this product I really liked it. My skin felt really smooth and nice. The longer I used it, the less effective it seemed to be. Also seemed to dry my face out. Will probably not buy again.

This scrub is great for helping out with my blemishes and exfoliate my face. I like the smell of it but the thing that was disappointing is that it dries out my face.

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