Smells great. Worked at first use but my skin got used to it pretty quickly. Feels good to scrub, probably better as an exfoliating scrub than a blemish control. Didn't do anything after a while but wash my face.

The apricot scent of this product is to die for, and it's great for any flakes that appear on your skin during the winter months. It's surprisingly gritty for a facial product, but it hasn't been painful to use.

Great product, exfoliates your skin without over drying it. Leaves your skin glowing! I always give other scrubs a try but I always end up coming back to St. Ives! Best scrub ever!!!!

OMG!!!-!' the abrasiveness on my skin. Not mention my skin broke out like wild fires. No clarity whatsoever. My skin remained dull with pimples. I used this product for a week.

I have tried this several times in the last 10 years. I definitely like this product . Great for exfoliation even for people with sensitive skin . Although I would not use this product more than two times a week

I really like st Ives products because they are natural and don't have harmful chemicals, but I am not a fan of the scent of this face wash. It exfoliates well but I prefer other scents

I know everyone loves this stuff but it's too rough for my skin! It actually hurt after the second day. I would leave this to a bi-monthly use or just for my feet
