Love it love it love it! Face or body, it’s not harsh on your skin at all. Helps with blackheads on the nose and the T area, and brings out a whole new layer of skin. No redness, itchiness or irritation

I have used this every day for 10 years! I’m not sure if you have to switch up facial cleansers, but this is my favorite skin product of all time. Not only is it great on skin blemishes but it’s also a miracle worker for razor burns or unwanted dots after waxing!

I absolutely LOVE the exfoliant beads. St. Ives Apricot Scrub is one of the harshest exfoliator I have ever tried. Because of that, it works best on my skin. The scrub cleans out my pores and exfoliates all of the dead skin off. My skin feels very smooth and clean after I use the scrub. After using the scrub for a few weeks, my family and friends noticed that my skin looks softer and more radiant which is awesome! I now have less blackheads which is a huge plus. I like to use this face scrub as both a face/body scrub because it works so well. I highly encourage people to try this out!

I started using this product a long time ago, it's still one of my favorite scrubs. It does not make my face dry and I love to use it in the shower before bed! It takes all my makeup off too, which is a bonus.

I’ve been using this product for years and use it about 1-2 times a week to exfoliate my skin. The smell is fantastic and helps with blackheads. The is a lot of product for the price and helps with my oily skin.
