The only scrub I will ever use. The only thing that works on mildly dry skin, and great to use year round. But be warned, scrub the sandy texture into your face with your hands and not a face towel or else they will not dissolve and there will be residue.

I've used this since i can remember and i probably always will. I've tried a million different exfoliating products and always go back to my tried and true! Doesn't bother my skin, makes my skin soft and not so oily.

I use this scrub about once or twice a week to get rid of my dead skin and exfoliate. I love the smell and the feeling I get after using it. Although the scrub is obviously kinda coarse it never makes my skin hurt.

I've used this apricot scrub as long as I can remember. I've only ventured away from it once or twice but I always return. It's a nice, thick cleanser. My skin always looks great when I use it. Soft and healthy.

This is my favorite face wash! The smell is amazing, it isn't hard to rinse, and it helps to control blemishes. I get this every time I can find a deal on it and before I became a couponer, i would buy it full price.

This facial scrub is great for making blemishes less visible and for those days that feel like your face is just dull before class. I use it 2 - 3 times a week. My skin comes out brighter and refreshed with every use.

This product is by far the best thing for my face. I usually apply it while I'm in the shower, i use the palm of my hand to scrub face in circular motion... rinse it off and BOOM! I can immediately feel the smoothness! It helps control break outs and makes your skin look radiant! Its effective and cheap. I will continue to use this product ! I love it!

During my early teenage years I was breaking out like crazy as most teenagers tend to do. My mom swears on St. Ives and I must say that it is the ONLY thing that got rid of my blemishes and truly left me feeling like my face was clear and clean. I recommend it to ANYONE. Unless you have sensitive skin that is. Then this might be a little too abrasive.

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