i can go without exfoliating, and the beads in this do not make my pores feel like they are getting bigger they seem to be super soft on the skin

I’ve been using this since probably middle school so a solid 10 years. It smells amazing, does a decent job at exfoliating and gets my skin nice and cleansed. I don’t use it daily as my skin can be a bit on the dry/sensitive side but twice a week works perfectly 👍🏽

I use this as a scrub once a week to help with blackheads and dry skin removal. It’s not harsh and does not make my skin break out. St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub

Smells amazing, feels very exfoliating, and works great! The smell is not overwhelming but very fresh. The exfoliation is not too hard or gentle, a comfortable medium. You can really feel it working immediately upon application as it cools your face off and relieves acne pain/redness. Washes off easily and smooth feeling. Works after just a couple days with redness and minor breakouts. Great with white/black heads.

St. Ives does it again! I cannot sing the praises enough of this product. I have only recently been using this brand for my skincare (well, my face at least), but I have been nothing short of impressed. The acne control apricot scrub really has done wonders to improve my skin. I have combination dry and oily skin, and it does a good job balancing that and working to clear out my pores and eliminate acne. Plus it smells amazing! I highly recommend you go get yourself some.
