Love the smell, the way it goes on, and how good it is for my face! It can be a little pricey at some places but you can find it pretty cheap at places such as Walmart, target, etc!

I feel like this helps my skin start to clear up because it scrubs of the dead skin and it also does not have harsh beads in it to make my skin angry. I use this about twice a week.

This scrub is great, but I do not use it daily. It's very gritty and not a fine scrub. I didn't really see a dramatic difference in my pores or black heads but I did feel refreshed.

I love St. Ive's Apricot scrub. Not only does it smell great and clean well- it exfoliates so nicely! My skin always feels better after I use it. I get complements on my skin often.

This is a good scrub. I actually love St. Ives products. It's hard to find an actually good scrub now a days and this one does it. It scrubs! That's what a scrub is supposed to do!

Not sure if it's just be but for some reason when I use this I tend to get more breakouts .... Might be the apricot but it hasn't been working for me lately like I hoped it would.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
