I love this scrub because it exfoliates my skin and it doesn't irritate it. Smells great and it clears my face. I still get acne the scrub won't stop that but it does control it.

I love this scrub. I've been using this ever since Junior high and high school. I love it. It's affordable and it's not only for the face. I like to scrub my feet with this. I recommend this especially if you don't want to spend a lot of money.

Pretty good, not great though. It does make your face feel smooth afterwards. And the price is reasonable and it can be found at most retail and some grocery stores. It however, does not really remove my makeup and definitely not mascara. It's okay for some time use but not for everyday use.

I really enjoy this. It smells nice and isn't too rough on my skin. I wouldn't recommend using this more than two or three times a week as I think it might dry out your skin, but it's good for once in a while. As a bonus, it removes makeup really well!

Sadly, I was not impressed with this product. I've heard so many great reviews that I decided to try it out for my skin. I ended up having a bad reaction it and it caused my skin to break out in a bunch of little bumps that itched. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to someone that has sensitive skin

I have used it for almost a year and I love it. I have clear skin and I don't have blemishes. I only use it 2 times a week and it doesn't irritate my skin. I really recommend it for people with oily skin as it helps control the oil in my face.

 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!

Back before the skin on my face was too sensitive for exfoliation, this was my favorite choice. It left my skin feeling soft, smooth and radiant. Unfortunately, the eczema on my face makes this product burn my skin now so I can no longer use it.

THIS is my absolute favorite face wash ever. The scent is light and wonderful. I sometimes have issues with a scrub being too harsh on my sensitive skin, but this one was perfect.

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