This scrub works really well. However, it is a little too rough for my face. I tend to use this once a week, because if I use it every day it irritates my skin. Smells great, works well. Also, because I only use is once a week, it lasts really well- so the price is good for how long it lasts me.

I honestly think everyone I know uses this scrub. I first started using It when I was younger because my mom always had a bottle in the shower. When I moved to college I bought myself a bottle. It can be a little rough, its not something you want to use every day, Just maybe two days a week.

I have used this product for years now! I started using when I was 15 or so and now I'm 35, so it's safe to say I really love it! It's great for my sensitive skin but also gritty enough to exfoliate really well. Also whenever I'm having breakouts, this really helps to clean out my pores and smooth out my skin. Great product and I totally reommend!

Recently bought this after trying some at my friends house. I have really oily skin. And after just one use I noticed a big change. My skin was smoothr and less oily. I can only use it two or three times a week because it dries my skin out but I still love the effects when I use it sparingly.

I got this in my Campus VoxBox and used it this morning. It left my face super soft and scrubbed away all the dead skin and rough patches. I would definitely recommend this product. I even used it on my elbows and other areas the winter left me very dry and patchy. My skin is all smooth now :)

I love this scrub! It smells amazing and it makes your skin feel SO soft! I bought the travel sized one for a trip out of the country and fell in LOVE. I'm not entirely positive if it would treat acne or not, but it definitely exfoliates just like it says it does and it makes my skin so soft!

One of my all time favorites and must haves for school. This wakes me up in the morning and leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling amazing! I would recommend it to anyone! In fact, I have made my middle school sister start using it! YOU can buy this product anywhere. I got it at Wal-Mart.

The best face scrub I have had so far. I like how fast clears up any blemishes I may have. Even though my friend who is a Mary Kay rep says it's really not good for your skin to basically be scratched up by apricots but I like the exfoliation and my skin looks better when I use it is how I feel.

I love St Ives Apricot Scrub! I have been using it for at least 10 years and leaves my face feeling soft and smooth. It also smells nice which I like since nothing is more disappointing than to put something on your face and it smells horrible! I look forward to using this each morning as a pick me up!

I bought this scrub with the hopes of removing the blackheads on my nose and getting rid of an occasional blemish. I have been using this product 1-2 times a week for the past few months with no results. I like the way my skin is soft afterwards, I just wish it had more blemish-fighting power!

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