I always come back to this exfoliator! The packaging is nothing to special just like other cleansers. It is effective leaving my skin smooth and soft. This price is great for the amount of product and how good it works

The product is great when I first started washing my face. I bought it at Wal-Mart just to try something new. It was well priced compared to CVS or rite aid. It got alot of dry skin off my cheeks after a bad sun burn but it dried my skin out alot as well.

Prefect for beginners! I used for many years and loved it still do, I have more mature skin now and needed something with a little more of a smaller grit also love using topical exfoliant. Best place to buy is Wal mart and yes I would recommend to others..

The apricot scrub has larger particles to exfoliate with, which is what I look for. This is my go to face wash. I have wacky skin that is sometimes oil and sometimes dry, but this stuff seems to work well with either condition! It controls my acne so well.

My skin is so dry, even more so during the summer. This scrub gives me such smooth hydrated skin, all while controlling my blemishes. This is always a must in my skin regiment! I highly recommend st Ives face products.

St. Ives makes great exfoliating face washes. I wash my face with this exfoliating wash 1-3 times per week to get rid of dead skin that often clogs your pores. It is reasonable priced and can be found at the local drugstore and/or Walmart. It does not irritate my sensitive skin.

This product has been so helpful for my skin. It surpassed the expectations I had for it. I find it to be very gentle, even though it is an exfoliating mask. The packaging is very nice and I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to control acne

My go to. Gentle enough to use every day and has really made a difference on my skin. I keep stocked up on this because if I go one day without it blemishes start popping up. Defiantly will always keep this in my skin care routine

This product (just like all of St. Ive's products) smells soooo good! We don't really get breakouts/blemishes so not to sure on how it works for that, but this product is great for exfoliating! It's a little difficult to wash away but other than that, love it!

I love this scrub! I have used it several times through the years and it always leaves my skin feeling soft and clean without causing irritation or dryness. I also love the fact that the exfoliants are 100% natural and that it is paraben and sulfate free.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
