I use this four times a week on my sensitive skin and absolutely love it! It's gentle enough that it doesn't irritate my skin, but it exfoliates well so my skin is smooth and soft after each use. It's my go-to scrub! Has been for years and will continue to be for years to come!

I started using this because my brother is a big fan of it so i gave it a try. it makes my face feel really clean and fresh. I only use it once a week in my face and body and when I do i always apply coconut oil all over my body before i dry my skin and my skin feels amazing!!

I've used this for years. Always gave me smooth glowing skin. The apricot kernels can be a bit harsh, a gentle touch is best. Never had bad and acne while I used it. Usually picked it from Walmart.

I use this as my cleanser and exfoliate, as I love the smell and it helps keep my face feeling very soft and smooth. Just be careful not to over-exfoliate, but it does it’s job! I’ve been using it for almost a year, and it’s great!

I have used all different types of brands of exfoliaters and always come back to St. Ives. It is cheap and gets the job done. I love the smell and it makes my face feel fresh and clean. It may be a little harsh for some people although I love the feeling that it gives my skin.

I use this product in my everyday routine although I did not receive this from influenster. I bought this product on my own because I needed a daily face cleanser and it turned out to be amazing. I love the little balls inside that help to clean the dirt off your face more effectively. There is no after- streaky feel, nor does your face feel tight. It just feels clean. The apricot scent is not overbearing either. Overall, a good face cleanser.

I was skeptical at first because everyday it seems there's a new wash out on the market promising us one thing or another, but this Apricot scrub delivers, it's not harsh(for a scrub) it removes oil n unblockes pores, removes dirt & make up and leaves you skin feeling soft and amazingly clean& it's safe for sensitive skin!

I know, I know, you're only really supposed to exfoliate your skin once a week, but I just can't help it with this scrub! It smells great and it leaves your skin feeling fresh and new after you wash it off. I typically get spot acne, so this really helps to calm the irritation.

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