Great cleanser/exfoliator. Leaves skin feeling clean and soft.

I don't use it every night, maybe once or twice a week. Moderation, don't overdo :)

I love this as a daily scrub! It exfoliates great, minimizes my pores and makes my skin feel so baby soft! It has also gotten rid of a lot blackheads!

Very nourishing to my skin! My face always feels baby bottom soft after I'm done scrubbing with this! Mainly because of the little dried apricot bits!

I have used this product for years. Not only to exfoliate my face but I also use it on my arms to exfoliate them and get rid of those pesky red bumps.

It's okay for an exfoliater but there is definitely some harsh chemicals that can be more harmful if used on sensitive skin. SO PLEASE USE WITH CAUTION

I love anything St Ives! I know youre not supposed to exfoliate daily but this product is gentle enough to do that. Non drying. You will love the scent

I loved this scrub! Sadly my skin didn't like it as well.. my breakout didn't go away, and so I didn't continue to use it after my first bottle was up.

Good...could be a LITTLE too harsh and rough with the rougher particles in this as compared to their green tea scrub, but its cleansing and not drying

LOVE THIS! I use it once a week and my skin feel baby soft! Don't over use it as tempting as it is. It can make you break out if you use it too much!

Fabulous inexpensive face scrub! I really only use this once a week or a couple times a month, but it does a great job of exfoliating off my dry skin!

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