I love the apricot scrub. I currently am using the generic version of this. It works well and smells good. It has a lot of beads in it. The price is good. You don't need much for your face, so it lasts awhile making the value great. I would buy this again.

It's alright if you don't have super bad acne, but I can get pretty nasty cystic acne and I needed something a little stronger than this. It also left my skin feeling a little greasy and I didn't like it.

I love this product! It is very cheap and can be found at any drugstore! It's very refreshing and feels great on your skin. It met all of my expectations for a scrub. It did not dry out my skin like other scrubs have done in the past.

I love this scrub, I got a few of them on a good couponing deal at target and didn't know what to expect from it. It is awesome, smells good, and is a great exfoliant. My face has cleared up a bit as well.

I've used St. Ives before so when I received this scrub in my Campus VoxBox I was so excited! This is one of my favorite scrubs. It's gentle yet gets the job done and leaves my face feeling fresh and clean!
