I use this every other day on my face and body. My skin isn't overly dry or sensitive on my face so I've never had issues, but I do know of some friends who find this too abrasive for the skin on their faces. I find it leaves my skin nice and smooth, it smells good, and exfoliates with natural substances, which is nice.

Me encanta este exfoliaste es barato y puedes encontrarlo en cualquier supermercado o farmacia. En cuanto al producto como tal es suave con la piel y puedes usarlo en rostro y cuerpo lo uso mucho en la espalda pues tenía muchas imperfecciones pero este exfoliaste me ayudó a disminuirlas por lo que sin duda lo compraría una y otra ves

I have used this product for 5+ years and I couldn't be more in love. This product gives me a deep clean down to the depths of my pores, without drying out my skin or producing more breakouts. The formula is gentle on my sensitive skin but still gets the job done! I recommend this product to all my friends and family.

i like to try different wipes mostly for makeup removal. This one however i wasnt very satisfies. Using it makes my hand sticky and it doesnt help take off makeup easily. I bought it from boots. Never buying it again and definately do not recomend it

This product have changed my skin. As soon as I started using it my skin felt softer, makeup went on better, and all my breakouts started to disappear. It exceeded my expectations, I have re purchased this product several times and have backups on hand. I won’t be without itSt. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub

This face scrub is one of the best out there. I bought it earlier on in last year because i had heard amazing things about it and it lived up to its reviews!
The smell is amazing and it is so gentle yet cleansing at the same time. It is not to be used too regularly though as it can be fairly harsh on the skin as the granules in it are rough. I recommend using it once a week but i was very happy with this product and it was so affordable too!

This product helped me a lot to eliminate my acne, I love it a lot, the only bad thing is that it can be aggressive for your skin.

You should use it two or three times per week!

Since using this I have seen a massive difference with my acne, it has reduced the amount of spots on my skin while leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth. It also leaves my skin smelling like apricots ( the smell is so amazing ). Once again the price is really affordable and the benefits for you skin is worth it.

A bit abrasive on the skin but gets rid of at least one pimple with each use. Gets rid of all dead skin on your face and there isn't a need to really scrub it in there to get the full use of it. Easily gets into your pores and cleans them out for lighter feeling skin
