I have bought St. Ives apricot scrub faithfully for about 6 years now, it was the first product that actually helped my sensitive skin, and freed me from blemishes. There are no color additives and perfumes that can break most people out.

My favorite face wash, it smells great and the packaging looks great! It’s a great price, I have used this face wash for years. I love it, the scrub just really makes it feel like you’re getting all the dirt off your face and getting deep into your pores. I definitely recommend!

This SCRUB!! I've been using this scrub for around 6 years and have never gone to another one. My skin is really acne prone but using this will leave my face smooth and I don't have to worry about a break out. It's extremely affordable and for its price, this product is amazing.

So abrasive and cause long term damage to the skin. I always advise young girls to use a less abrasive exfoliantor. Less is more. Go over to macys and ask to try a sample of philosophy micro delivery wash. You will never come back to this.

This is a must have in my house! I have been using this for years and I love it. It’s not harsh on the face and it actually works! Best drug store facial product ever. Every time I run out I immediately run to Walmart and pick up some more! It leaves my face looking fresh and clean and healthier skin!
