I have been using this cleanser everyday for years! It is my holy grail. You are not supposed to exfoliate everyday, but if you follow up with a moisturizer it will work wonders. I was struggling with severe acne my entire life and after using this for a while it cleared up almost completely! But i can not stress the moisturizer enough. The more you moisturize oily skin, the less oily it will be! (weird, right) and the less oily you are the less clogged you get. But this cleanser really breaks down the dead and bad skin cells that causes acne. If you struggle with these I highly recommend! This is the one skin care product i will never stray from!

This stuffs okay. I have other exfoliants that I prefer but my sister left this here so I'll use it. Most likely wouldn't buy it one I finish with this one though

The holy grail for my exfoliating routine. I’ve been using St. Ives since high school and has always made my skin feel and look better from my hormonal breakouts🤕

I purchased because I like apricot scrubs. I do not get blemishes very often so I don't know how this works for that purpose. It is affordable and nicely scented.

Love this stuff!! Only problem is I️ can’t use it everyday because the exfoliation is too much for my sensitive skin, I️ switch off with my Shea Moisture cleanser.

I’ve been using this product for years. I use this for my body to scrub once a week in the shower. It really scrubs off dead skin. It has a nice smell and the price is really good for the value.

It's really nice. But the only thing I would say about this is that if I would stop using it I felt like all the blemishes came back. My face would breakout again.

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