I love to scrub my face with St.Ives products. It smells great, and it's for every single skin, mine in particular is sensitive, but I totally love how it keeps my skin ♥♥

I was really surprised by this product because its relatively cheap but is actually rather good.
It does have a scent but its not over powering which i like :)
I also found it really helped my dry bits on my face and after i used it my face felt really soft and smooth :)

As a couponer I'm able to get this product for free or close to. I love the naturaul ingredients. Its such a great alternative to chemicals and plastic beads for expholiation. This product is also not tested on animals! Makes me confident that I'm able to use a great product

I've been using this face scrub for nearly 3 months and I am so pleased with the gorgeous apricot scent and the softness & moisture that my skin gets every time I use the face scrub ( 2 times a day)

I tried using this for my acne, blackheads & overall just for my skin. It did nothing for me! Yes it smells good, but it had no affect on my skin. I was very disappointed.

I do love this product because it makes your face really soft and smells great. I'm not sure if it has helped cleared up my skin but I don't really have a problem with acne or zits so. I can't say if it helps but it does make your face soft and doesn't dry your skin out.

I have used this scrub for twenty years!! Nothing leaves my skin feeling as smooth and soft as this apricot scrub. Reduces oiliness and never, ever causes breakouts like nose other exfoliants do.
