I have been using this product for 30 years, and I still love it. The packaging has changed over the years, but not the actual product. In the 30 years that I have used it, I have had no complaints, ever :)

St Ives apricot scrub is a great cleanser that smells great and makes your face feel great. the only complaint I have is that it dried out my face a bit but that can easily be resolved by using the product less

I love this scrub! I've been using it for years! It does an excellent job of making my skin feel soft and smooth! I don't use this every day. I switch between a gentle cleanser and the scrub. Highly recommend!

I use this product night and day! I would not live without it! I think it the best facial scrub around. Be careful because some skin types cannot handle the harsh scrub every day.

I use this once a week, sometimes twice a week with a moisturizer afterwards. I have been using this product for about 10 years now. Great cleanser. The scrub really gets in your pores and cleans out the dirt.

This is the best face scrub I've ever owned. It makes your face smooth, and leaves your skin looking bright and clear. I recommend this to anyone and everyone. it really does work, and it's not that expensive.

Use this about 4 times a month. love the smell, the nice deep down clean you get! Also the price point is just right, for me it costs around $3 at my local walmart and if you have a coupon even cheaper!! : )

I love the feel of this scrub on my face. The more you run it in, the more smooth it gets. This scrub really made me feel like I was getting the dry and dead skin off and make my face feel clean and refreshed.

This scrub is very popular and effective. It can be too harsh since the beads are natural and can be jagged and rough, so be careful! Great as a body scrub, though. The smell is interesting. Looks very natural
