I personally don't like this scent, but the green tea scrub is my favorite. I have super sensitive skin, and this doesn't irritate it at all! Best part is that it isn't too expensive, and you really don't need that much to cover your face at all!

I have always loved St. Ives Apricot Scrub as an exfoiliant but never for the face. I find it is far too grainy and rough. I used this when I was younger and it would actually scratch the face. I find it is great for the rets of the body though.

I have tried everything! From Proactiv to Clean and Clear and everything in between. My skin was struggling. But this stuff keeps my skin clear and fresh looking. I will literally never use anything else again. I love it too much to give it up.

Most girls have fond meneories of when they first began thier skin care regímenes, mine goes straight to this face scrub. I have always used this scrub as a constant because that is what my mother recommends to me, and it's probably the one that I'll show my daughter. A classic for a reason

I love st. Ives and this is my go to face wash. It's not too harsh as long as your gentle and it helps clear the dead skin. I have dry skin so I try not to use it too often but when my face feels a little flaky or dull this is my go to product.

I use this about 3/4 days a week, I have oily skin/ acne pron skin so this makes my face so clean. I don't use too much of it bc a little goes a long way & i tend to water it down a little so it's not to rough but, this is prefect for exfoliating.

I love this stuff, I have always seen this product in stores, but just started using it in the last year after seeing some great reviews, I love how it exfoliates and cleans my face. Smells great and makes my face feel so smooth after using it.

I have always liked this product. It's one of the best out there. It smells really good and it really gets all the dirt and makeup off. Its gentle enough to use every day and very affordable. after using it my face always feels smooth and soft.

Amazing Love the smell and the feeling of my skin soft and peachy. The price is great too, you can also find it at any store. I suggest to wash face with cold water first and then with cold/hot water because you will start to see clearer results to a fresh better skin :)

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