I used to use this scrub all of the time because it's natural and smells really good but honestly you really don't want to use this scrub if you have acne because it's pretty abrasive. If you have acne you don't want to cause further irritation so I would stay clear of this scrub.

I remember using this product when I was in high school to help control my occasional acne. It was fantastic then, and it is still amazing now. I'm not surprised at all that this scrub is still on the market, and I would recommend it to everyone. It is scrubby, but not too abrasive.

I have been using this for years and nothing compares to it. It exfoliates without over drying and is the only thing that keeps my skin clear. It has the perfect size exfoliants and the perfect amount.

Omg this stuff is amazing! I used to have terrible acne, and would go to the dermatologist and get the expensive creams, medications, and NOTHING worked. This $4 scrub literally cleared my skin. I scrub my face every day using this, follow it up with a facial wash, face mask, glycolic acid, and then a moisturizer. THIS STUFF IS AWESOME!

Love this! My go-to facial scrub! I especially love this during the winter to buff my dry skin! I also use this after shaving my legs sometimes, it helps prevent the little bumps I get sometimes after shaving!

St, Ives Apricot Scrub is a great product. I've been using it since I was a teenager. My skin tends to get used to product and stop working. With using the exfoliating cleanser a couple times a week. My skin has never been better. It is also very affordable and found in all stores.

I use this scrub every other day and find when I do use it 3/4 times a week my face feels and looks great! I love that it makes my face squeaky clean and once I'm done rinsing it feels so soft. Not harsh at all on my skin!

This smells great and at a price you can get a nice scrub to exfoliation of your body or your face I have used it for both. Leaves skin soft and smooth. I got it at Walmart. I would recommend this to you.

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