The good old apricot scrub. This is an old school product. This has been around since my preteen days and it's a staple for many. It not only works on the face but it's also great for dark underarms and bikini lines.

It's perfect. I've been using this everyday and everynight! It's the kinda product that you just can't live without. The ones that you need, but it does make a difference especially if your skin is dry and not healthy or discoloration. It literally just cleans your face completely.

After I use this it leaves my face baby soft! You can feel it scrubbing away most of the blackheads and it shows instant results! The scent isn't bad either,and for the price it gives you a lot of product!

My favorite facial scrub out of the St.Ives line. It smells so nice and leaves a refreshing feeling. When I start to break out or get dry skin I use this. It makes my skin turn so smooth and look so clear.

Love this facial scrub really does the job! by far my favorite facial scrub i have tried! Gets rid of make up and any dirt that may be left on your face from the day. I highly recommend this to someone who is looking to improve acne prone skin or just in search of a great facial scrub.

I use this scrub daily and it is wonderful! Gives my skin a facial clean feeling and removes the dead old skin cells without irritating the fresh, new skin! I love the smell and that the exfoliators are made of fruit! I highly recommend this!
