I use this once a week when I feel my skin is in need of exfoliation. My skin always feels baby soft after use! I always pick up this product for exfoliation and have been through so many tubes of this!

The beads are a little too abrasive for me, although it does exfoliate my skin well, I feel sore afterwards no matter how gently I worked the product. Smells nice but too harsh.

Not a very gentle scrub, so I would advise to use it only about once a week. Pretty affordable and leaves my skin feels soft and clean after using it. Does not dry out my skin.

I personally love this product! I am not a person who uses scrubs frequently because my skin tends to be dry, but when I want that fresh layer of new skin I go for this product!

I use to use this product a lot while I was growing up, it was pretty good! I guess after years of using it, I felt I needed something different. I can't really say anything bad about it!

I like this product because the apricot smell is so nice and it has tiny micro beads inside which exfoliate the skin and gets rid of exess dirt. It has a buffing effect and leaves your skin feeling soft.

I recently finished using a whole pack of this scrub. I didn't really like the feeling and I don't think it helped. Personally I only felt it aggravating my acne. The only good thing about this was the smell which was quite pleasant.

I have use st Ives apricot scrub before Abe have round that it leaves skin smooth and soft. I like the beads but it can sometimes cause dryness. It's a bit harsh on my skin.

At the beginning I love it. It smells good, and it works well on skin. But in my case I use it only once per week, I have realized that using it more than that can be agressive for my skin (normal).
