I love St.Ives face scrubs because I can feel my skin literally being scrubbed of the dirt from the day, including makeup. I would not use this product everyday, as it does leave your skin a little raw after from the scrubbing. I love how it makes me feel clean and fresh afterwards and how it has a nice smell.

I've Used St.Ives Apricot Scrub since I was probably 10 and I love it. It gets the job done and its available at the drugstore which is a bonus. Its nice to have such great products available at the drugstore without having to dish out loads of cash for an excellent product. My skin is always clear and soft.

I live by this stuff. I have terrible skin, and I breakout all the time. This face wash literally calms my skin and makes it smoothr than smooth. There's only a few washes I can count on to not make me break out, and this is one of them. Also, it's not pricey.

For the price point this scrub is great. Its very exfoliating, gives a deep clean and smells nice! However, I sometimes find it can be harsh on skin and strip essential oils. But with gentle scrubbing this could be avoided avoid. Overall, effective exfoliator.

En mi opinión este producto es excepcional, me a funcionado de maravilla y no tengo ninguna queja o inconveniente con el, mi piel es muy delicada y no me a fallado ni decepcionado nunca.
St lves blemish control apricot scrub is a 100% natural exfoliant which deeply exfolicates the skin removing dead skin cells, helps with acne control while simultaneously hydrating the skin. The packaging of the product can be more updated and appealing. I would recommend this product to all skin types.

My favorite facial scrub ever. I'll never be without it! it's super cheap (usually 3 bucks) and lasts ages! I have relatively sensitive skin, but the little scrubbies in it don't irritate my skin, just exfoliates perfectly! My skin is so soft after using this.

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