I have never been more pleased with a face wash! It leaves my face not only feeling hydrated but also extremely soft! I've used this face wash for years and it has never let me down! I used to get pretty bad acne but since I started using this product I haven't had a single problem. 10/10 for sure!

My fiancé needing something for blackheads, I have always used this product for a nice deep cleansing scrub.. I bought him some and now he is in love. it leaves your skin silky smooth and after repeated use it will get rid of blackheads and blemishes.

This is an oldie but a goodie. This leaves your face pure and fresh. I think this because I lien the scrubby feeling. I usually buy it at Walmart. This does its job well. I will probably use it again in the future.

I love St. Ives blemish control! It helps get rid of blemishes and helps with them staying away! It's very soothing and smells amazing. It's usually cheap at Target, Walgreens or Walmart.

This is my go to exfoliator.I have used this for years and will continue to use. I did attempt to use the Target brand of this type of product and I couldn't even finish the bottle. I had to go back to the St. Ive's! It leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, which is the most important thing for me!

I use this product every morning! I love the way it makes my face feel! It makes my face feel really soft and clean. However, I do not think it helps prevent blemish and blackheads. While my complexion is decent, I don't feel this helps improve it.

Effective, creamy cleanser which contains rather large scrubbing granules. Use when skin is in need of a deep cleaning or needs to be prepped for masks. I really like that the beads contained in this product are natural. Have repurchased repeatedly.

I would use this scrub everyday if I could. I have the pink lemonade St. Ives scrub as well but the apricot has bigger beads and the scrub is a little more harsh. I love that about it.

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