I love been using the St. Ives Apricot Scrub for years. I don't use it every day, but I use it once or twice a week to exfoliate. It doesn't feel too harsh on the skin and leaves my skin with a soft, fresh glow. I'd highly recommend this to anyone considering purchasing it!

This product is very good and cleans the face very thoroughly. It’s a bit harsh but helps get rid of dirt. I use this everyday and love it, it has a good value and the price is right. I would recommend this product to everyone

A facial scrub that does it's job. It's a bit more harsh of a grit than most drugstore products out there, which is something I like. Definitely something I always go back to regardless of what other exfoliating products I try.

Use this everyday after a double cleanse! The best face scrub I’ve ever used and you can pick this up for like £1 which is amazing as it last ages! I won’t use any other scrub again. Leaves your skin with an amazing glow after!

Love this product! I love the feeling it gives on your face when you use it. And as I scrub my face I feel like the little beads help dig deep and get the dirt that we normally miss without them.

St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub I don't use this product every day, probably every 2-3. It scrubs all of the dead skin and left over makeup off, and then the next day you can visibly see the blackheads surfacing.

I love this cleanser, it's great for sensitive skin and it really helps with breakout prone skin. I like the scrubbing aspect because it targets the hard to get at spots. It's relatively inexpensive so it lets me splurge on other parts of my regime. Highly recommend!

One of my favorite face washes. Great for exfoliating and getting all that makeup/dirt out of your pores. I love it because it's super cheap and affordable. Make sure to always moisturizer afterwards, or your skin will dry up!
