Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! I have went through around 4 bottles of this and have never came across anything as good as it! It is gentle but removes the dead skin leaving skin feeling soft, it doesn't dry out the skin either and keeps blemishes under control. Seriously! Buy this!

Exfoliates my skin really well and prevents my acne from breaking out, while cleaning my skin thoroughly without overdrying. Really good product for the price, I've been using this product for years now as my daily scrub/wash.  St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub

This is my favourite scrub. I've been using it for years on a regular basis and will always go back to it. The scrub uses natural exfoliants (bonus!) that might be a bit rough on some skin types but I love the deep clean that it gives me.

This is a really great mask if you don’t have a lot of money! I use this around 3 times a week and I haven’t had any breakouts yet this year! It’s a great product to use when you shower and it leaves your face feeling great and it smells really nice unlike any other acne products.

good scrub, but not for face. you know, mechanical exfoliation is bad for face skin. I used this scrub fue times on my face, it was ok, but chemical peeling is much better for your skin.

 I noticed that around my nose area and my nose were really dry and flaky and makeup just wasn't sitting nicely on my skin. So I picked up this scrub from my local supermarket and used it after I had removed my makeup and I instantly noticed a difference.  My skin was so smooth and radiant.  I was so surprised that something so affordable could work so well.  I would definitely buy again.

Haven't used this apricot scrub for a few years now but in high school it was my daily user. I would recommend this product for teens with oily skin as it does dry out your face of any excess oil without being over-dying. Smells amazing and makes skin feel so so soft after use.

I don't suffer from acne but I do have areas that are prone to getting a lot of blackheads, so I use this in spot areas. It does a great job deeply cleaning for me. I have sensitive skin so it doesn't dry mine out when I use it only in targeted spots. I would recommend to others

As a sufferer of dry skin especially on my nose, this product is seriously amazing to clear out all those clogged pores! It's pretty harsh on the skin but that is totally expected from a quality exfoliated. I will purchase again and again as I have already done in the past :)

This is my favourite exfoliator - nothing else gets rid of my dead skin cells like this does. It does irritate my skin a little because I have very sensitive skin but I continue to use it because it's just so good. I love the way it leaves my skin feeling once I've used it.

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