This product did cleanse my skin however, I often found myself being a bit to rough with it and, I don’t think this helped my skin, if you use it carefully it is a good product but, I’ve put it on a hold for now as it seemed to dry out and damage my skin St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub

This product helped exfoliate my skin and made my skin feel a lot smoother and cleaner after every use. It removed my dead skin cells and helped control my acne. The only downside is that it was a bit too harsh for my sensitive skin, but I would still recommend it to people who are not that sensitive

This has been a staple item in my home for years. Great for clearing up acne, and leaving skin feeling refreshed. Gentle enough for frequent use, yet hard enough to tackle dry, oily skin. The scent is a little weird as it smells like something that should be used on your feet but you get used to it.

I really love all of the St. Ives products, although I feel they have changed the formula a little. I love this scrub, and if I had to chose between this scrub in the squeeze package or the tub, I love the tub because I get more for my money but it tends to go back. In the squeeze tube it doesn't ferment which is nice. It also comes sealed which I love!

This is my all time favourite skin product! The scrub gets deep into the skin leaving it feeling really clean, removing all the impurities. My skin is always noticeably clearer and smoother for days after one use. A perfect price for a perfect product!

I had heard so much good things about this scrub so I bought it. I have use this about 1 month now and yes I like when it does my skin feel soft and glowy but I have not seen much of the results with my acne... I want to give another opportunity for this product.
I really want this to works for me.

this scrubs ruined my skin. i highly DON’T recommend this product! i takes to my dermatologist about it and the apricot pieces are actually too sharp for the skin on your face and with cause more breakouts! my skin used to be really nice and ever since i started using this i started getting acne.

I use this weekly! It smells amazing, like apricots, duh! It’s not that overly strong but it’s smells great! This is my go to scrub that is part of my skin care regimen! It’s not too harsh so you could probably use it daily but I just find that a scrub is too invasive for my skin for daily usage!

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