I believe I actually got this in a VoxBox and fell in love. The exfoliation and sheer cleansing power of this product can be immediately felt and I definitely feel like I had clearer skin with regular use.

A great scrub that isn't too harsh for my sensitive skin! I use this maybe 1-2 times per week to really clean my face, deep down. I think it's a good value for the price because one tube lasts me 4-6 months. The apricot scent is refreshing!

I like this product, but it doesn't make my skin feel clean. It just makes it feel greasier, it does help with the pimples but I am not sure I want oily skin that will get even more pimples than its fighting.

I love St. Ives scrubs. No matter the formula they always exfoliate really well. My skin is clear and clean and refreshed after using. It's not too harsh like a lot of blemish products can be, it's just the right blend of cleansing and gentle.

I love this!!! I always use it to wash of my make up and exfloliate my face!! It has the little beads in there to take out all the dead skin cells. I also use this on my dry feet and it makes it super soft

I buy this rather than the original to compromise with my husband The original would be a better fit for me but this works ok. Exfoliating like no other. Works good. Smell is ok. Leaves skin feeling tight

This is a great scrub, my entire family uses it. Anytime I try something different I always end up coming back to this. It cleans wonderfully , it takes off all my make up and it clears up my skin. This is really a great product. Who says you need to have a expensive product for it to work. This is a great price and a great product

I can't use this every day because it is really exfoliating, it doesn't lie! It can irritate your face if you use it too often but I love how soft it makes my skin when I use it, I only use it twice a week

This is an affordable product that will get you results. I love how my skin feels after using it but keep in mind that is not gentle and you should really only be using it a few times a week, not every day.

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