I've been using the st.ives apricot scrub for 20 years now, so I had to try the blemish control version. This is slightly creamier in texture, and I scrub it in, then leave it on for 10-15 min as a scrub to really clear my skin

I LOVE this face wash. It isn't harsh on your skin and makes it feel very clean! This is my go to face wash for sure. It met every expectation I had! It is very effective and leaves your face feeling smooth and soft. I see no room for improvement with this face wash.

I've used this scrub since high school. Although I have dry skin, this works wonders if used sparingly. I love the smell and the way my face feels after I've scrubbed away all the gross stuff I've collected throughout the day.

This product is great. It works really well to remove dead skin cells to reveal soft smooth skin while still being gentle on sensitive skin. It also has a pleasant smell. I would definitely recommend this product to others.

This acne face wash works extremely well. I couldn't tell a difference in my acne but this did clean my face efficiently. The little beads in it helps to exfoliate my skin and made my skin really soft. It also smells really good

It was good. I liked it. The smell was ok. It did help with my blemishes but I broke out a bit with it. I gave some to my nephew (teenager) and it worked better for him. I guess my skin was not handling the combo in this product

I absolutely love this! The gritty texture is definitely exfoliating my face! The smell is different but it’s not bad. I always love using this on a daily! It didn’t leave an oily feeling on my face either! Definitely buy again!

This is my go to face wash. I probably use it more than I should. The smell is a little weird, the generic kind smells better. But all in all it's great and always leaves your face feeling fresh

I use this everyday faithfully. It is seriously the BEST fave wash. If I go a day or two without it you can tell!!!! This keeps my pimples under control and feels so good when rubbing on my face . It has a lot of grains in it!!

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