This is the only face wash/scrub that keeps my face clean and I don't suffer more breakouts. Other scrubs usually make me feel greasy or more pores clog instantly. This is a great product!

I have tried numerous skincare scrubs in the past. I can honestly say that St. Ives Apricot Scrub is GREAT! It doesn't make my skin break out. It has greatly reduced black heads on my teenage son. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This product is definitely tried and true, it works and its at a great price. I like the texture of this scrub and you can tell it actually works since afterwards my face is smooth and who doesn't like the scent of this?

I love St. Ives Apricot Scrub because it is one of the best drugstore face washes I've used. It is inexpensive yet effective. The wash is gentle enough on my skin while still exfoliating.

My husband And I use this daily on our faces. Probably shouldn't, but we do. I don't think it's the best product but definitely works well for the price. I still have black heads on my nose and chin but they are small

Even though I have really oil skin, most facial scrubs leave my skin feeling stiff and dry. However, this was different. Not only did my face feel great but the smell was pleasant as well! Definitely recommend it! 8/10 :)

I use this scrub at least once a week or once every two weeks. I try not to use it as much because it is a harsh exfoliant, so i don't recommend it for sensitive skin. But after I use it my skins feels like a baby's bum.
