I love this product. It is super affordable and it does exactly what it should. As soon as I found this product it really helped my skin. I have recommended it to others and they also grew to love it! I would purchase this again!

It has not done much. IT gave me more acne than before. It kept opening my pores and making everything even worse. It always dried out m skin. A bit overpriced for a useless product. It is very disappointing. Definitely lots of room for improvement

I love this facial scrub, al though i can't really say it helped me that much with some of my breakouts, but it does leave you skin feel as smooth as a babies butt!

This close to being my favorite scrub to use but I just find that the scrub is not fine enough and does more damage to my skin than necessary. It's great at keeping my skin clean, but I would only use this on days I've had makeup on my skin too long

I tried this product out after trying countless facial cleansers that did not work for my skin. St. Ives Apricot Scrub doesn't keep my skin perfectly blemish free (unfortunately), but it does a pretty darn good job! The scrub has little sand-like pieces in it which rubs away dry skin and gets deep down to dirt and oil. Since I've started using this product, my face has felt much softer and smoothr.

I really like this stuff! I bought it a few days ago after hearing from a friend that is was a super great facial scrub. So far I am loving it and it leaves my face so soft and fresh. I also have not notice that is breaks out my skin at all so I am going to continue using it. I probably won't be using this everyday because scrubs for the face can be bad for your skin if you use it every day. Instead I use this every two- three days. Remember to use moisturizer afterwards!

I purchased from amazon subscribe and save for 2.87 I've used this product for 2 weeks now and in the first week I've already noticed even skin tone a lot of my dark spots have faded completely and this will not dry your skin out like some scrubs.

I used to really like this cleanser until I realized that it was actually making my skin worse because it's so so rough on your skin. It is incredibly exfoliating which may be great before you shave your legs but it was sucking the life from my skin.

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