This product is perfect for when your face needs to breathe again and get your glow back! It is creamy and has just enough to exfoliate. My skin is left clean and has fewer blackheads than normal!

This St. Ives Apricot Scrub is one of the best scrubs out there! Aside from it's amazing scent, it clears acne like nothing I've ever seen before! I use this every morning as it's such a great product to kickstart my day! It does a great job with reducing your pimples, minimizing your pores and if your face is oily, it's amazing for that as well!

It's not too expensive either and leaves your skin feeling so soft and smooth! I recommend this product to anyone who's suffering from breakouts or if you just need to exfoliate. 

Tip: Try using this as a body scrub too! One of my friends tried it and recommend that I try it to, and I have no regrets! My skin feels so smooth after I've used this on it!

This is a so so product for me. I do wish it lathered and scrubbed a bit more than it does. I find myself having to use another face wash to fully take all makeup off my face. Recommend??? Hmmmmm maybe not

I wouldn't use this everyday because it could irritate your skin from the little beads/particles in it to exfoliate the skin. I have sensitive skin so it is great to use once a weak to exfoliate because it isn't extremely abrasive

Apricot scrub has been one of my go to products for as long as I remember. The beads in it gently exfoliate my face, and leaves it so soft. And not to mention the fragrance is amazing as well! Wish there was a 10 star rate option!

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