St. Ives Apricot Scrub leaves your skin refreshed and cleaned after usage! I love this product and recommend it! Overall, I think it depends on your skin sensitivity, etc.

My roomates swore by this stufff back when I moved in. I had never used it and since I was on a budget I tired it out. I've been using it and other St. Ives products since.

I have used this product for awhile and it is great! However it doesn't really help with blemishes. I end up having to use a stronger face wash to really get my face clean.

I love this face scrub! It is a great exfoliator and gentle enough to use every day or every other day. Nice scent, affordable and leaves your face feeling clean and smooth.

I'm not sure on if it really helps with blemishes. But it does help remove dead skin with the microbeads. Doesn't have an overwhelming scent and also doesn't irritate my skin
