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!

I love this product. Exfoliates skin well, and doesn't dry out my skin. I also like the actual St. Ives brand better than the knock off brand from Walmart or Target.

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 :)

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 use this everyday in the shower, I have oily skin and I feel like this has helped keep it clean. Along with this one I also use their green tea and oatmeal scrubs.

This is the only facial scrub that I've used aND like. It does have a bit of a clay smell to it, but after rensing it goes away. It leaves my face feeling so smooth.
