One of my favorite face scrubs! I have been using this for about a year now and I have never found anything else quite like it. It has just the right amount of "scrubbers" in it that you really feel like it did a great job cleaning your face.

After using the St. Ives face Aprocot Scrub my face has felt more fresh and clean after every wash. It clears my blemishes. But if forget to use it brings back twice as many blemishes..although most products are prone to do the same. I would definitely continue to use this scrub.

I've come to learn that anything that claims it treats acne doesn't really treat it, but as far as a face scrub I like this product because of the smell and the exfoliating power of it. It's okay to use this everyday if you're gentle enough

I bought this for my husband who suffers from severe acne and loves using scrubs on his face. Although it was very 'scruby' and smelled amazing it didn't do anything for him. I know that everyone's skin is different though so I would still recommend this scrub to those who are looking!

Exfoliation is super important for your skin's health. I used this product for years before I started to be able to afford more expensive products. There are more expensive products in the $30+ price range that I like better, but for $5 or less, you can't beat this one. You can also use it to wash your hands and keep them exfoliated.

This product is amazing, it's not too harsh on my sensitive skin and it exfoliates it leaving it super soft afterwards. I like to dab it all over my face and leaving it on a couple minutes before I start exfoliating and I feel like that helps my skin get a better glow to it after my bath/shower. I would def recommend this product to anyone, it's super affordable and it's not harsh on the skin

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