I used to use this all the time when I was a teenager. However as I was aging, my skin was getting more and more sensitive and I found it became too abrasive for regular use. I'm giving it a B because for oily or combination NON-SENSITIVE skin it is great. However for sensitive it is too grainy and tears the skin. It is alright to use occasionally, however I prefer to spend the money on something I can use more regularly. St. Ives has a gentle scrub with the red/pink little bursting scrubbers that is a lot nicer to sensitive skin if you want something comparable but less damaging.

Best scrub that I have used so far- it smells sooo good and refreshing and leaves me skin feeling extremely soft and it very effective in exfoliating- I use this in the shower regularly

I really like this product & can't believe how inexpensive it is. It also lasts a really long time, a little goes a long way. I do prefer the St. Ives Green Tea Scrub over this over, but I use them both. The original apricot scrub is much too abrasive for the face, but I use it occasionally on my legs. You don't need to scrub too hard, the formula alone does a lot of the work. I have repurchased this so many times I've lost count. I even got my Fiance hooked on it. We each have our own bottles, he kept stealing mine & using it up in a week (don't ask me how)!!

I just used this today for the first time in a long time. First, I love the smell, its amazing. Second, this facial wash is not something you can use every day, at least for me anyways. I use to use it every night to make sure my make up was gone and skin cleansed. I noticed that my skin got really dry and irritated even with regular moisturizing. With that said, it does not deter me from continuing use of this product. I use it now about once a week to exfoliate and take of dead skin and almost do a mini facial with a hot towel. My skin feels amazing after. Even though I did have a minor issue with this product, I still use it, just less.
This was the first facial scrub I ever purchased. I still remember the really smooth feeling I got as I rinsed it off and how much better my makeup looked after using this. It is a very grainy and quite harsh scrub, so I would suggest rubbing it together with some water in your palms first before applying to your face. I have always been a fan of the mechanical exfoliators over the chemical ones and this is a really good basic scrub. I never suffered any adverse effects from this, it's just that there are better ones out there. I would purchase this if none of my current favourites were available as it is a decent little scrub for a great price.

Number one favorite facial scrub. I use it about 3 times a week or when I feel I need a little extra scrub of the face. I even have travel ones for when I sleep over places or travel because I refuse to go without.

Es perfecta para mis clogged pores pero es muy brusca y a veces me deja la cara un poco roja por el tamaño del grano, sin embargo me quita la piel muerta bastante bien

I really like this to exfoliate my skin once a week. I like to use this on my body because it's kinda harsh on my skin to use on my face. I love using it on my body.

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