This is probably my favorite face scrub. Leaves my face feeling very very fresh and soft. You will notice a difference after a couple of times.

PSA: Friends don't let friends use St. Ives.  Want to dry out your skin and take all the moisture outta your life? You're in luck-- St. Ives has your back.  Sure, it clears up acne, but no moisturizer can save what this will do to your skin.  Seriously. Stay away.

Makes your face feel really smooth. If used daily, reduced appearance of black heads. It doesn't dissolve like a lot of other cleansers

I use this scrub maybe twice a week. It seems a little too harsh for my skin. So I won’t be purchasing this again.

Absolutely love this to clear up my blemishes! It leaves my skin felling smooth, and refreshed while keeping it moisturized, all of the dead skin on my face comes right off with this scrub, which overall leads to less acne on my face, which I absolutely love!

The Saint Ives blemish control apricot scrub  is amazing! The microbeads take off the dead skin and leave your skin feeling amazing!  Unlike most other scrubs it doesn't leave your skin irritated and it smells amazing!  For how much it is it is definitely worth it and I use it freely in the shower every day It is amazing!
