This is the most intense exfoliating scrub I have ever used.
If you're looking for something that will stub your skin off, this is the
product for you. But if you have sensitive skin, stay away. I like exfoliating
and this is a great scrub for it, but I wouldn't recommend using this more than
twice per week unless you want to rub your skin off.

I love this stuff. It smells good and thoroughly cleans your face without being too abrasive. I generally use it at night to clean my face better and to get all of the grime off from the work day. Try working it into skin in a circular motion and then washing it off. No need to use a washcloth.

This product is really effective in that it does help get rid of blemishes and prevent new breakouts, but it is a very harsh scrub which only means that you should use it once or twice a week instead of everyday.

This stuff leaves my fave so soft and clean. I use this about 2 times a week because it is a scrub. This doesn't help my acne to clear up and helps to prevent it

St Ives face wash makes you feel so refreshed and ready to start the day. It can also be used at night to make you feel clean and ready for a good nights sleep. I have used St Ives for quite some time and have seen a dramatic difference in my skin!

This is one of my favorite facial scrubs! Although it has
beads in it, it does not feel to harsh or like it hurts my sensitive skin.
For the price you cannot beat it, I will definitely continue to

I've been buying this since I was younger. I always come back to it! Affordable, makes my skin feels smooth and invigorated. It isn't too harsh as it exfoliates. Never irritated my skin and I have sensitive skin!

LOVE this stuff😍. Most scrubs aren't as "harsh" as I want them to be but this formula is perfect. It really scrubs and cleanses your skin, leaving it feeling soft and refreshed. Also keeps the blemishes away!

This is my most favorite go to face wash/exfoliate. My skin if prone to breakouts if i don't take care of it. And I've noticed when using the apricot scrub, my breakouts have subsided and I only use it 3x a week.

I enjoy this scrub a lot, though it's not for everyone, I like that it leaves my skin very refreshed but its very very harsh and scratchy, not for sensitive skin
