I have been using this stuff for YEARS now! I naturally have rougher skin and St. Ives Apricot Scrub really helps to keep the little bumps on my face down! I also use the St. Ives moisturizer after and man does it make a difference!

I am actually not very fond of this product. While it is very inexpensive, I do not feel that this product works well.

The idea of this is great, but my face does not feel or appear to be any happier after using this product.

I do love this product it has great exfoliation and it has helped some blemishes on my chin but only bad thing it didn't help my blackheads that much and if you have sensitive skin i would not recommend this product for you because it might be too harsh for your skin type.

This scrub smells really great with the apricot in it, but the exfoliants can be damaging to your skin. It leaves my skin feeling dry and irritated. A scrub like this should not be used daily.

Been using this scrub for a year now and I LOVE it. It is great on sensitive skin that gets oily I use it everyday twice a day/ Its affordable and it does a great job at removing makeup and dead skin while not leaving ski raw.

My face was breaking out a lot so I decided to try a new exfoliation wash. I picked this one because it was the cheapest but I am so happy that I did. Since I have been using this scrub my face not only cleared up but it has also stayed clear. I recommend highly.

I have been using this forever. This has been my first ever facial cleanser and I still use it to clean and exfoliate my face. It does it's job. It cleans and removes all the dead skin in your face leaving it looking fresh and bright and it's not harsh on the skin at all

This was a wonderful scrub. I could definitely feel the product working. I no longer use this product as it is a little harsh on my dry skin, but I did have clear skin while I used it.  I bought two bottles of this and I absolutely loved this product.

The unique thing about this product always was the apricot "pieces" you could feel when you rubbed it into your skin. My face always feels so much smoothr and cleaner after using. It has been a standard for me through many years.

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