This is an okay face wash if you are penny pinching. Doesn't dry my face out. I love how it's more of a scrub that soap. Leaves me feeling clean. It also smells great. I found it harder to wash off than other face washes.

I hope they never stop making this stuff. It never needs to be changed, improved or re-done. It just works. Love the way I feel after using it. And you can use it for more that your face! Exfoliate to your hearts desire!

This product for me was pretty good for exfoliating. It's cheap and comes in a lot of varieties. It does feel a little harsh on the skin but using it a couple times a week gave good results and I didn't see any damage being done to my skin. I would recommend.

It has been a staple in my skin care regime since I was 16 and a lot of people compare my skin tone and texture to snowwhite ( fair complexion/ soft clear skin) but I do have a lot of skin care secrets that I am willing to share. This product is acceptionally good for a back up scrub for vacation or whatever. I do like st. Ives though bc they are natural.

I never stick to one certain brand of beauty products hair products or skincare products but St. Ives apricot scrub is one brand I have continued to use sense I was 12. Mom mom uses it my grandma uses it. Needless to say it runs in the family. This stuff really has ALWAYS kept my face clear and smooth. I'll never stop using it so long as its on the market.

I can't get enough of this stuff! I absolutely love the smell and it makes my face feel so much cleaner after using it. If your skin is really dry in the Winter like mine, pair this scrub with a really good moisturizer.

I used this product forever thinking that I was doing the right thing by exfoliating........however, have learned from my dermatologist that your should be exfoliating your skin through using "chemicals" not seeds.

This is one of the only face scrubs that I will purchase. I get samples of different brands, and I come back to St. Ives time and time again. It does what it says, plain and simple. Does not irritate skin and exfoliates!

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