Great weekly exfoliate especially if you have acne. Product smells wonderful and feels nice on the skin. Use every other day to see great results. This gentle cleanser leaves the face clean and smooth. A repetitive buy

I absolutely love this scrub! The scent to the apricot scrub is to die. St. Ives never fails! I have owned various scrubs from this brand but this one is my favorite! It not only leaves your face feeling fresh and clean but it leaves it so smooth! I have a very oily face and this scrub just controls it. It also prevents any acne from showing up, I haven't broken out since using it! So in love. Definitely recommend.

I received this is one of my vox boxes like 6months ago and I am so grateful I did! This is my favorite exfoliator! And it is super affordable, which is a huge deal for a college student. I was never one to have acne, instead I just get a couple pimples every now and again. I can thank my mom for that. This scrub helps clear them right up! Thank you influenster because this is a product I will continue to buy.

This product lasts a long time. I love the sand texture. It helps to clean my pores. I only wish the packaging was a little different. I use this in the shower and it washes away easily without leaving my face greasy.

Works very well and exfoliates my skin while still keeping my impurities and blemishes at bay. I use this once or twice a day just depending on what i have going on.

Me gusta bastante este producto como un scrub diario o interndiario, pues las particulas son muy pequeñas y no es tan agresivo con el rostro, en cuanto a la desaparicion d puntos negros he notado que han disminuido, pero en general llevo una rutina de cidados para eso, asi que no puedo decir que sea el 100% este rpoducto, sin embargo, me gusta abstante el trabajo que hace, me deja el rostro fresco y tiene un aroma agradable

I like this product. After I wash my face it's really soft but I don't know if it really works because I haven't been using if for that long and I see no difference.

I used to use pro active but then I got sick of all of the steps so a friend recommended me to St. Ives. St. Ives Apricot Blemish Control scrub feels so much more refreshing! It has also done a much better job of preventing blemishes. I use it every time in the shower followed by a little bit of the green tea scrub to minimize my pores. Put on a little moisturizer when you're done and you have a smooth clean face!

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