this is amazing but i will say if you use it you should moisturizing right after because your skin will be dry. i do not recommend this to people with sensitive or dry skin though

I love this product. There is no other exfoliating facewash quite like this one, it helps to take the day away and keep my skin clean. I use at night to completely clean my face and keep it soft and smooth!

I have been using St Ives Apricot Scrub for years and is my favorite exfoliator. I use it 2 or 3 times a week to slough off all of the dead skin cells and it always leaves my face feeling smooth and healthy.

Before my eczema broke out, this was the only thing that would clear up pimples. I can’t use it now just because it does dry my skin out a lot, but once my skin is back to normal, I will start using this again.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this facial scrub. This product has been my go to cleanser for many year now. The way it feels on my skin, makes me feel like I'm getting a facial from the salon! It works well with my blackhead issues. It doesn't have an unpleasant smell which is a major plus for me!

I grew up using this scrub, I love the way it feels on my face and it is the perfect exfoliator because it isn't extremely abrasive on my skin. My husband has very sensitive skin and can use this with ease!

I have been using St. Ives' apricot scrub for years! Since I was a wee pre-pubescent teen. The scrub smells great and it feels great on the skin. I love a good exfoliator and this is definitely it! I use it daily and it never irritates my skin. You can feel it working instantly.
