No need to spend a crazy amount of money on expensive face scrubs. This scrub really gets the grit out of pores without irritating my skin. Plus it smells great and leaves my skin smooth and refreshed after use.

I loved this product! it really helped clear up the redness on my face and the small blemishes that followed with it. Gentle enough for everyday use and not rough on your skin at all.

St.Ives apricot scrub is too harsh for facial skin. But it is one of my favorite scrubs to use on my back. It keeps my skin clear and soft. Been using it for a few year now,and I haven't had any problems with it.

I am oily so this actually made my skin more oily do to the harsh exfoliation. Any type of pressure makes this feel like you are rubbing sand paper on your skin.

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.

I like this scrub a lot! It’s just abrasive enough to gently exfoliate without hurting healthy skin. The smell was really pleasant and left my face feeling fresh!

I love this product! I've tried so many other face wash products on my skin and none worked as great as this. I use this everyday when I shower or at night before bed to wash my makeup off. Plus, it smells good!
