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 scrub is great for early teenagers. As I continued to use it my skin sorta immune to the product, but overall it kept my skin under control and smooth. The smell is soothing and fruity. I would purchase this again hoping for a different result!

Although this product is a really effective exfoliant, it does have sharp grains that aren't necessarily good for the skin. It can be too abrasive on sensitive skin. For tough rough skin, it would probably be better.

The St.Ive's Apricot scrub leaves your skin exfoliated, clean, and soft. I've been using this for years and I wouldn't use any other one cause of all the chemicals the other people put in them. It also smells great.

I have used this since i could remember it is my favorite and works so amazingly leaving my face feeling clean and fresh. I always buy it at Target when they are on sale so that I never run out! It is very effective and I would be totally lost without it!

I like to use this product for a great facial scrub, however for those who prefer a more natural organic scrub, you wont find that here. There are some harsh chemicals and additives that I do believe dry my face out.

I hardly get breakouts when I use this product! I have found that my skin responds best to it when I use this a couple of times a week rather than everyday! I definitely recommend for a deeper cleansing product for use only a couple of times a week.

This scrub is kind of moisturizing and does not clear black heads and clogged pores as much as I'd like but it smells really good and makes your skin very soft. I would buy this again just because it's good to use everyday if I wanted to and smells good

I love this product as a way to clean my face daily in the shower. It's pretty good at scrubbing and cleaning out my pores without irritating my skin. If I have a pimple, however, I do feel like I sometimes need something stronger to really get in there.

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