This works wonders. I've used this many years because of bumpy skin from playing softball. The sweat and dirt would make me break out and I used it on body. Love love love this product.

This product saved my acne-prone skin when I was younger. I used it twice a week with my other skin care products and it cleared the majority away and left a smooth, clean feel. Love it!

I've been using this product for years! Definitely no blackheads, but it is super painful if it gets in your eyes. Also is difficult to work with if you have a big zit.

This product works to keep my hands moisturized for long periods of time. Well after the application my hands are left smelling great. It moisturizes the skin without leaving it greasy.

This scrub is a staple in my daily routine. If I'm traveling and only use a foaming cleanser for a few days, I really miss the deep clean that this scrub provides.

The St. Ives Apricot scrub works well on my skin. I only use it once or twice a week so my skin doesn't dry out. My skin is always soft and radiant after I use it.
