I use to use this product all the time, but sometimes it was just a little rough on my skin. I have since switched to a finer exfoliator, but every now and then reach back for this

I love this scrub! I’ve tried many high end face scrubs and I always come back to this one. It really cleans your pores out and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin!

I used to use this stuff like crazy and Idk what happened but it's horrible now. It makes my skin oily and feel way dirty. I'm very displeased with this product

If I could give zero stars I would. Harsh, harsh, harsh. No blemish control, it caused more blemishes. Gave me little blotchy red spots because of the harsh scrubbing mix in the cream. Made my face feel oily.

This is one of my favorite face scrubs. It does a great job exfoliating and removing dead skin. I have noticed however, with prolonged use it does tend to make my skin a little oily.

The smell is amazing. The feel is great and refreshing. It cleans pretty well. And most importantly you can get it from your local dollar store so the price is unbeatable. I like it.

I've used quite a few moisturizing scrubs but this so far has been my holy grail product. St. Ives apricot scrub exfoliates the skin and yet leaves it smooth and soft. I use it to exfoliate both body and face.
I personally have pretty sensitive skin and my nose is often fill with blackhead, however since I start using this product my nose have got rid of quite a lot of blackhead. Yet my face has not hurt or turn red!
