For me it is a must have. I use it everyday and even more during the winter. I love it and I will continue to use it for as long as my dry skin requires it.

I have used St. Ives products for years, particularly the apricot scrub. It gets rid of yucky blackheads but doesn't dry out your skin. Highly recommend.

I have been using this since more than 15 years ago. It's a great cost effective scrub. Might not be for sensitive skin, but for my oily skin works wonders.
