This scrub leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft. In my case I don't notice it clearing my blemishes. I use it twice a day and sometimes 3 times if that.

This apricot scrub is the greatest!! It’s not too rough on your skins. It has a great scent! It lathers and rinses off easily! The ingredients are very safe.

I've been using this for a few years now, I've tried other products that are usually too rough for my skin or cause me to breakout but this has been perfect!

Love this stuff. I've had the apricot scrub from many different store brands and nothing performs or stands up to the consistency and results St. Ives does.

I have some mild cystic acne along my jaw line and this is the only this that seems to knock it right out. I love how soft and even it leaves my skin after.
