This is my all time favorite facial cleanser.  My skin gets dried out in certain spots and can look terrible when wearing foundation over the top of it.  This scrub removes all of this dry skin, and facilitates a very nice makeup application.  Great exfoliant in this product, does not feel too abrasive.  Just the perfect scrub!

I always have at least two tubes of this on hand in my cabinet! I absolutely swear by it. It works as an exfoliater but also helps to clear my skin up. My skin feels so smooth and clean after using the scrub. I even m use it as a body scrub sometimes!

I love the St. Ives apricot scrub. Its a great to exfoliate with. I would not recommend it for someone with sensitive skin though, because the scrub beads are fairly large. Good for oily skin. It is non - comedogenic.

A significant difference in my skin since I have been using this product. My skin looks clear and clean and it does not cause me to become too oily. I use with cetaphil cleanser and lotion and my skin has never looked better! and I have terrible skin!

Love this product. During the summer months my skin has a hard time fighting the makeup, humidity and environmental pollution. The St.Ives scrub works well and does not dry my skin out. It really helps to keep my skin clear and keep those blackheads at bay

This is one of my favorite exfoliating scrubs. You feel clean while scrubbing! It smells AMAZING and your face feels smooth and soft when you wash it off. Concentrate on areas with black heads and it will remove them!

I have used this scrub for years now. It's gritty texture leaves my skin soft and breakout-free. I use it about 3 times a week, at most, and the results have always been consistent. Plus, it smells nice! A subtle peach scent that's not too overpowering.

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