Great for a monthly scub or once a week if need be! Very abrasive ! Shouldn't be used if face is red, acne covered, or dry. Should be used on skin that just needs to rid of excess dry skin or a deep cleanse. Moisturize after using. Can be drying. Don't forget scrubs can leave tiny little scratches in your face use according to directions.

I love this face wash a ton. The micro beads really get into your pores and clean them out. You can feel the face wash disinfecting open blemishes and the face wash is great for purging black heads as well. To top it off, smells amazing!

I have used this product weekly since I was a teenager and I'm 36 now. I still get breakouts and this scrub helps keep my face clear while being gentle enough for my sensitive combination skin. It's a must own if you ever get blackheads

When I first tried St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub, I felt like I couldn't live without it and it was working for me. But then I started breaking out again and didn't know why! Will revisit soon and observe the changes in my skin!

I used this product and am extremely in love with it. My face feels cleaner and softer after just one use. It's a bit rough on the skin when you're exfoliating, but I honestly prefer it that way. Definitely no better face wash out there.

I love this product because of the price alone. It's a decent product too, I have sensitive skin and it doesn't dry it out, which I would've expected with something that's a little more abrasive. My only complaint is that due to a non-thorough facial cleanse, I sometimes have some left over around my hairline...purely my fault though

This is my all time favorite facial scrub and always find my self returning to it when my stash at home runs out. It is my go to for my sensitive skin because it is not to harsh on it, but it does give a good exfoliation when I need it!

This scrub is very good ! I love that it always leaves my skin smelling and feeling very fresh . It also is a mild exfoliant so I like that too. It last a long time too and you don't need a lot of product to cleanse your face a little goes a long way! Great price and easy to find.
