I used to use this scrub long time ago. Its a very good one for the price it cost. I stopped using it because scrubs can make your face more oily if you have oily skin by itself. But I would keep using it if my skin were different.

I love this stuff, works magic. It definitely exfoliates your face, but not recommended for people with sensitive skin because it can be a little tough on skin. But for me, I love it, leaves my face feeling so smooth after I use it!

I don't use this anymore, but that's because it worked so great! I had problems with my skin while in high school, a friend recommended this to me, and by junior year, my skin had zero blemishes, it felt smooth to the touch, and I do love apricots, so it smells fantastic(:

I have loved this product ever since I've purchased it almost two years ago! I use it one or two times a month depending on how my skin feels. I get amazingly smooth skin after every use, it will always be a staple product for me.

Take a small sized pea drop and GENTLY rub it all over your face and neck. Do NOT rub it in hard or you will hurt your skin. This is my go-to exfoliater. It's perfect at making your face a clean and fresh canvas. HIGHLY recommend!

I love all St. Ives' products, but this is one I use daily. It leaves my face feeling fresh and clean, but isn't too harsh. My skin used to get really dry after showering or washing, but this scrub seems to really compliment my skin. Not to mention, it smells amazing!

Used for years and love it! This is a great exfoliate and works so well to clean out your pores! I use this on my face to help cleaner out my pores before I do a mask for ultimate reward. My husband actually has me use this on his back for ache break out and he loves it.

I love this apricot scrub. It isn't too harsh to where it dries out the skin, It is a great exfoliant. You can pretty much feel the dead skin cells coming off. I recommend this product if you have blackheads, it works really well.
