I use St. Ives black head control apricot scrub 3-4x a week. It is great at exfoliating so my skin looks fresh. It also has a great scent and does not dry out my skin like some other products. Overall, Great product.

This product works for the most part. It doesn't dry my combination skin or leave it greasy. I still have break outs during that once a month thing but other than that I love this product

I have only used this product for a few days and it smells really good. It leaves your skin feeling soft and it seems to be working pretty well on my skin. I would recommend this product.

Really good product, doesn't give the skin a 'greasy' feel like some other facial products do. It feels great and your skin feels squeaky clean afterwards. Does what it says on the bottle. Would defiantly recommend

This is one of the two facial cleansers I use. It does dry out your skin a little so on the off days I use Cetaphil. St. Ives has a great smell and I love the little beads of the scrub.
