This works very well, and smells nice. It is pretty thick though but it spreads easy. You will quickly notice results. I got this in a 3 pack, and I'm glad I did!

This is my go to facial cleanser when I start breaking out. It's a nice exfoliator that isn't too harsh on my skin, my face is usually very sensitive. I usually pick it up at target and they last pretty long considering I wash my face every night with it.

This is a nice product when you use a rag and scrub your face with it but just make sure around the borders of your hair like the edges, its covered because it is so annoying getting the little beads out of your hair.

Helps get the texture out of my skin! Smells decent and it is so affordable! You can find it almost anywhere. It for sure helps my skin appearance to be at its best. I guess texture and texture work out haha I’d definitely like more yummy smells though

The St Ives Apricot Scrub is a bit abrasive and harsh for my acne-prone skin. Rather than control my acne, it caused me to break out several times, even when I limited my use to two times a week. Unfortunately, I won't be using this product again.

I love this product, I always have a bottle in my shower to exfoliate my skin every few days while treating acne. I don't use it on a daily basis because it does start to dry out your skin, but i like it a lot better in comparison to other face scrubs.

This is a main stay in my pantry. The quality of this product is outstanding. The smell is mild and leaves my skin butter soft. I do believe my mother uses this as well and probably bought me my first bottle many moons ago.

This is a great exfoliator, for large pores. This retails for about $2.87 at my Walmart, and other mass retailers. I've used this product on my face, neck, and chest area & have no complaints. I'd recommend to anyone looking for an affordable face scrub !

This is a staple in my skin care routine. I use it once sometimes twice a week. i feel like it get's that impenetrable film off my face. I feel like i really did fall in love when i found this product a few years ago.

I just started using this because I've been needing an exfoliant in my skin routine. I love the way it smells and the way it makes my skin feel after! I don't know how well it will work on acne, since I've only been using it a few days, so time will tell.

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