I have purchased this product multiple times. It does a great job exfoliating my face and does help my acne. I do have sensitive skin so sometimes it irritates my skin (I get red). I recommend using this 1x-2x a week to avoid this. I definitely recommend this product!

Been using this product for years and I love it . It is very cheap and smells great. It also feels super good on the skin. It never lets me down. Has a very basic packaging but not a lot to expect for a product that is about $2.

St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub I love this stuff! I use it every day and it makes my skin smooth and blemish free! The beads in it make me feel that it is intensely scrubbing off any unwanted oils or dead skin.

For as cheap as this is... it’s beyond amazing. I would pay a lot more for this but it’s so amazing that it’s priced so well! I use this every other day in the shower with just a really small amount after cleansing my face. always makes my skin super smooth and glow (:

Having used this blemish fighting scrub since I was in middle school, the intoxicating smell of oat and apricot is both awakening and rejuvenating! Helping my tired swimmer face stay hydrated without extra oil lingering, I still love this affordable brand to this day!

Both my husband and I swear by this product. It gives you a very clean feel because you can feel the apricot beads scrub off the dirt and grime. Most products would leave your face feeling oily after but this product does not.

I use this product every morning. It’s a very good exfoliant and has helped reduce my acne as well as fade my acne scars! I love having the exfoliant combined with my acne treatment and this product works better than any other acne treatment I have personally tried.

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