I loved how the product smelled. It was going well until I washed my face. As soon as washed the product off, my face started itching. So I must of gotten an allergic reaction to it. Rewashed my face with my usual product to reduce the itching.

I'm obsessed with this facial scrub! I went through a period of really bad dry flaky skin in the winter and this helped so so much. I used it every other day and it really helped to clear up the flakiness and left my skin feeling fresh and clean!

I love this product.It's great for my acne-prone skin. I haven't use this product for a month and my skin was acting out that I had to buy it again right away and since then it been my everyday cleanser and haven't really seen any pimples since.

A little goes a long way! This really does a good job of exfoliating and deep cleaning you skin. I noticed a huge difference after just one use. This isn't something I need to use every day, it as a on e a week treatment I think it works great.

I have been using scrubs from St. Ives 2-3 times a week since I was in high school (and that's been a long minute.) This particular one wasn't my favorite. It was a great but gentle exfoliator, but it did nothing to the blackheads that haunt my face. It also dried out my skin a bit. I use another scrub from this line with better success.

 St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub is a personal favorite of mine and is a stable in my home. It does a really good job of getting all surface blackheads removed and leaving a smooth and even complexion afterward. This is a natural product so it does better than to be expected!

I love the feeling after using a scrub. this one is very nice and strong. Although, I noticed that sometimes it will actually make my skin break out even more if I have used the scrub for too long. Definitely don't need to use a scrub every day.

Im not sure if it has done anything to my skin as of now and ive used maybe for two months every other day or twice a week... I don't feel any tingling cleaning sensation, doesn't leave it fresh like other products but it hasn't done worse either. I actually purchased it by the great reviews on here but it hasn't done anything to me. So its iffy

I've been cleansing my face with the scrub since I was in middle school let me tell you it works wonders! It's perfect for when your make up is being a little stubborn and doesn't want to come off. It will take all the gunk you have off your face!

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