I love this product! Use it to exfoliate your body if you don't use it for your face!

I own a salon and I actually use this when I do facials for my clients.

I love this product but definitely don't recommend everyday use. My skin didn't dry out so much but it seems like more breakout occurred if I used it too often.

I like St-Ives product in general and I like the apricot scrub. It is a great quality vs price. I like to use once a week fallowed by a great hydratation mask.
This is a very good product. It is excellent for getting rid of excess oil and black heads. I have been using this product for years, and it have never failed.

It makes my face feel fresh and I love the beads but I didn't think it helped my blackheads or acne. Its good for a regular face wash but not an acne treatment.

I use this a few times a week. It helps my makeup last longer as it scrubs away all of the dead skin cells. Plus it leaves my skin feeling clean and oh so soft.

I've always had trouble finding a good face cleaner but after finding this about two years ago, I haven't used anything else. I've even got my husband using it!

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