This is a really abrasive product and should be used with caution! The best kind of exfoliation for your face is actually chemical exfoliation, NOT physical! This stuff is so abrasive that it makes a better foot scrub than a face scrub.

When I was using this product I got so many compliments on my skin! I recently switched to something different just for a change and I really regret it! I'm just waiting to finish what I have so I can go back to the St, Ives Apricot Scrub!

St. Ives is a fairly decent scrub. I've used it for almost 2 years until I switched to a different variant with smaller beads (grit). Although there might not be dramatic changes to your skin, it will surely rid you of dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling soft and fresh.

I have only tried this one a few times just because my skin is very sensitive to these! I just break out more when I use this scrub....but it definelty depends on the person using it! Always test it before you decide to use it for days!

Doesn't clean well but it does exfoliate nicely. Left my skin nice but after using it for a while my skin started to breakout. I thought it was something else, kept on using this face wash...the breakout continued, so I immediately stopped using it, and skin started to clear out.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub is my VERY favorite exfoliate! I use it on my face a couple times a week and my body most everyday unless i have a spray tan. However it is Great for removing dead skin before a spray tan to get a nice even color!

I have kind of sensitive skin so its difficult to find a scrub that wont leave me red and raw. I found this product a long time ago and it worked great but have tried others since just to see what is out there. I still come back to this one at the end of the day. Highly recommend.

I was using a different face wash that wasn't a scrub. I had major break outs all the time. I switched to this and ALL my acne went away, when I got out of the shower my face felt AWESOME. there was no dry skin, no pulling, and no itching. This stuff was a lifesaver for my wedding!

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