St. Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub is a good facial scrub that smells great but i am starting to use less scrubs as they can be harsh on the face.

Not too drying if used moderately. Exfoliates the skin gently while helping with problem pores and cleans up bacteria that leads to bad break outs.

I love this stuff! My skin holds up well to the exfoliation, and it definitely helps with my breakouts and blackheads. Can't beat the price either.

This stuff is super harsh on your skin and the rough “beads” in it should not be used on your face. Make my face break out even more and left scars

Love love love. I tend to use this while showering for the best results. Has a lot of exfoliating beads or "tiny spiky balls" as I like to call it.

I use this product every few days. I just don't feel the need to exfoliate every day, especially with a product that's kind of rough on the skin.

Okay. This scrub is thick and has cleanser in the little specs that you have to rub in to smooth out. It's almost like a mask. I use it 3x a week.

I love this but it can sometimes be too harsh to use in the winter time. just be mindful of how many times you use it in a week and you'll be fine

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