This is my favorite face wash. It doesn't cost too much, a little bit goes a long way, and you get a lot in one bottle. Plus the exfoliants are biodegradable unlike the brands with the little plastic beads. It works great and exfoliates my face without leaving it dry.
I absolutely love how my face feels after using it. It feels so nice and soft. I didn't notice it having much affect on blemishes. If you have acne prone skin this would be good but if have super problematic acne skin then I don't think this would be much help.

I've been purchasing this for years and every-time I run out it isn't long before I must go out and buy another. I use it about 2-3/week and it keeps my skin fresh and exfoliated. Great formula, not a super fine scrub but it works great for evening out patchy skin.

This is my husband's go to scrub. He uses this almost every day. I only use this product probably once every two weeks. It makes my face dry and sometimes peel. Hence, the very minimal use. It is great though! I think the value for what its worth is pretty good.

I really enjoyed this scrub. It has a pleasant smell and texture. I skin feel so smooth and clean after I use it. I also like that is budget-friendly. I recommend if you are looking for a nice exfoliate to use one or twice a week. A nice addition to my skin regimen.

I really love that it doesn't have a crazy smell to it but I feel like it's way to harsh on my skin. I will only use this when I am having a horrific breakout and need something really strong.

I have used the St Ives Apricot Scrub for a few years now and really enjoy it. The larger granules are really great at exfoliating, and even though my skin is sensitive I have never had a problem using it 2-3 times per week. My skin is so soft after using - love it!

Apricot scrub is something I live by. I love the way it exfoliates my skin, which it does a really good job at. I love the smell and it leaves my face feeling so clean and wonderful. This really is a must have for all females. I even know some men that swear by it!

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