I got this in my voxbox, but I've used it as well over the past few years. I love the texture and the smell. For those who say it's too abrasive to the skin It may be better suited as a body scrub instead!

I always keep St. Ives Apricot Scrub in my shower and use it every other day. It's super important to exfoliate - I also use it on my neck, chest, back and arms for super soft skin! Plus it smells yummy!

I use this every time I wash my face than apply my cleanser. It keeps my breakouts to a minimum compared to when I only used a gentle cleaser without this exfoliant! Will always continue to use this brand(:

I just found about about St. Ives apricot scrub, and I love it! I love the apricot scent but what I love the most is the aftermath of using this scrub, my skin feels smooth and healthy, I use it every day!

I love this brand of scrubs. I use this scrub before I go to sleep. I ususlly leave it on for 10 minutes, creating a mask. Now it does take a lot to wash off after 10 minutes. After washing it off it leaves my skin feeling smooth, and clean.

This face scrub worked okay for me. It faded a few black heads that were on my face. It also worked great as a moisturizer for daily exposure. It didn't completly get the job done but it started it off great.

I love this stuff! I have used it 3 times a week for the last 10 years and my skin is clear, smooth, and glowing! I tried using another product for a week, and quickly returned to my apricot scrub. Never again will I divert from this product!

This product is just okay in my book. Its kind of harsh and cant be used daily which i don't like. After continual use as directed I didn't see any difference in my skin, I did feel clean after using it though.

Really like the scrub, it's not too harsh but does the job. I used this several times and love the scent, and gives you a refreshing feeling once you wash it off. It's pretty soft too, but I recommend you using 1-2 a week, not too much!

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