Really nice product, helped me clear up my acne. Not too rough on sensitive skin and price point is really good. I purchased this at my local coles supermarket. It was extremely effective for me.

I have been using this cream since high school on my body. I get dry skin during winter season and it help me a lot. It is also an affordable cream and often in sale.

It is a good product if you want to exfoliate and scrub your skin but personally, it didn't do much to rid my blackheads and it just left my face feeling tight and very red; blackheads included

For people with sensitive skin I would not recommend this product. I myself have extremely sentimental skin and I found this product to harsh. It made my acne more noticeable, gave me dry skin, and extreme readiness.

This product is easily accessible and is a great price. I only use this scrub about twice a week because I don't like to be too harsh with my sensitive skin, but I highly suggest this product.

Really exfoliates and leaves your skin super soft! It works best for blackheads and really cleans the dirt and oil out of your pores. At a good price and good for sensitive skin.

I love this product, it makes my skin feel amazing and smooth and totally clean. my face never feels better then it does after i use this. I've also found since i started using it a year ago a lot of my acne scars and hyper pigmentation have dissipated so thats a HUGE plus!

I love this apricot scrub from St. Ives. I use it everyday when I'm taking a shower. I feel like it gets in there deep and I LOVE THE SMELL OF IT. I've been using it for around 3 years now. I'm hesitant to try anything else.

Both me and my fiance love this and use it all the time. He has oily skin and I have normal skin, it works perfectly for both of us. It's gentle enough for everyday use.

I really like the st. Ives scrubs but it is important to be careful - the peach pits exfoliate a lot on their own so you don't have to scrub very hard! it leaves your skin feeling really smooth.
