I purchased this scrub to use it over my face but soon realised that the size of the granules is quite large and it irritated my sensitive skin. I reached for it again after a couple of weeks but this time I used it over my body and it works very well. It works as a good exfoliator and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth

I really like this facial exfoliant because it very gentle on the skin and it doesn't take off any of the oils your face actually needs...It doesn't use harsh chemicals that strips your skin down, its perfect to use when I just need to take the grime of the day off my face!!!

I love this exfoliator!! I love the grittyness of it because it really feels like it deep cleans my pores. Any acne problems that I had have been helped so much after using this product! I am obsessed with the smell of this product, it reminds me of when I was in Punta Cana. I have repurchased this product quite a few times.

I use this scrub every night before I go to bed, after I've taken off my make up to make sure my skin is clean and soft. It also puts moisture back into my skin which is great because my "t" zone gets very dry in the winter. I also love the smell! Definitely a great product!

The beads are very harsh so i only use it once or twice a week, more if my skin is feeling shitty.

Even though the beads are large and rough the scrub itself doesn't dry out my skin, unlike other facial scrubs I use this one leaves it feeling soft and not at all dry and tight

Growing up I used st Ives facial products a lot, and for the most part found them effective however I didn't really see a difference in the amount of blackheads I had already had but over a few weeks hadn't seen many more pop up so I would say its more for someone who wants to prevent them but not for the initial clear up

The St.Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub is one of my favourite scrubs. I find it at all my local pharmacies and I've been using it for a long time. It's a very good value for money product when compared to other brand names. It leaves my skin feeling very soft and refreshed and gets rid of blemishes in no time.

i read good things about the product and initially i used to enjoy using it on my face twice or three times a week. however, it dries out my skin now as the weather is becoming colder and  i've used it only once a week to combat the dryness. i would buy it again though because it works just as well as a body scrub.

I have just begun using this and I can already tell that I'll be repurchasing. I bought it at my local grocer on a recommendation from my partner and I'm so glad I did! Beautiful smell, nice packaging and my face hasn't been this smooth since I exited the womb. 10/10

Good bang for your buck! Use this soap daily, and it truly works wonders. Is a bit harsh for sensitive skin, however it does fine on mine. The only con to this product is the use of animal testing while in the St. Ives industry.

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