I can honestly that I love this. I'm only 14 and have been using this for about a year now since I've first discovered breakouts. I'm dark skinned (like chocolate) and it has been the greatest thing ever. Its gentle and exfoliates very nicely. It left my skin soft and caused less breakouts and it smells amazing. its just a great product that I would recommend to anyone.

As a Cosmetologist I know that fine apricot can be harsh on the skin. It actually scratches the Epidermis. You won't see the effects until you've been using this product for quite some time. As a teenager I loved it, the smell everything about it. But as an adult I educated myself and it can be harmful to the skin!

This is my fave scrub. Tried others but have always come back to St Ives as it's the only one that leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and not sore. Just don't make the mistake of using it everyday as my daughter did as it's only intended for use 2-3 times a week.

Love this scrub I have been using it for years. It's easy to use once a week. Keep in the shower so you don't forget to use it. The price is so inexpensive which is what I love about it. You can get it at your local drug store.

I really like this scrub but I wouldn't say its my favorite that I've ever used. I don't feel like it made a huge difference in getting rid of blackheads, however my skin always felt smooth and refreshed after using it. Its very affordable too and you can't beat that!

I use this scrub about every other day over my entire face & a stronger skin scrub on my oily areas. I have combination skin (oily & dry) and I find it works great on both areas. My skin feels amazingly smooth and clean after.

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