I do love this product. Have been using it for years and I love the way it makes my face feel. Clean and smooth. But sometime the particles that help with the scrubbing can be a bit too rough. But to remedy that I just scrub a little softer.

I love this! (Purchased on my own and been using for years ) If I feel my blackheads are sticking out too much (mostly on my nose) I just wash my face with this and it smooths it out! I use this as needed which might be daily or every other day and never experienced any problems. I have normal skin (not sensitive and not oily or dry)

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.

I have used St. Ives Apricot Scrub and i love how soft and smooth my face is after I used it. And I do notice a difference in the look of my face. My pores are cleaner and my face looks fresh and clean. I will always use this for a long time.

Economically and physically great. For its inexpensive price, this scrub works exceptionally well! First impression was that it didn't make my face feel as clean or scrubbed as if i would have used the Neutrogena scrubs. But, when I woke up the next day my face was clean and free of most of my blackheads/ my black heads were smaller.

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.

Though I liked the apricot scent and the easy to use tube container, I had some issues with the product itself. Simply put, this is not ideal for those with large pores, open acne spots, or sensitive skin. The scrub is creamy but the exfoliating beads are a bit too rough in my opinion.

This apricot scrub smells good and feels good as it's cleaning my face. I feel like this scrub is really washing my face but it doesn't work for blackheads or breakouts. I use this scrub twice a day and I still have problems with breakouts

I use St. Ives in my daily shower routine. It's a small bottle so it doesn't take up too much space. I LOVE how clean it makes my face feel and it helps get rid of the shine on my face. I can always tell in pictures when I used it because the flash doesn't reflect off of my forehead.

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