Lots of my friends swear their life on this scrub so I thought I would try it out. It is very harsh on skin but I did see little impact, but not enough that I would purchase again. It was very cheap too

I do like this scrub.. I bought mine on Amazon. It smells amazing but if you have very sensitive skin I don’t know that I’d recommend it. I have sensitive skin and have to use it very seldom. If I use it more than once a week, it does break my skin out.

I have used this a few times and it seems to be a decent product. This is not something that I would recommend for everyday use as to me it seems more of a exfoliant than an everyday cleaner. I believe I purchased this at walmart. It does make your face feel good after use though.

I’ve used this product since I was 16. It was the first piece of skin care products that I started using and it’s been a favorite of mine ever since. It’s easy on the skin and doesn’t dry your skin out.

St. Ives apricot scrub is awesome. My face always feels super clean after I use it. I like that it feels like it gets down into your pores and gets off the grime from the day, making my skin feel fresh.

This works great! I use it about 2-3 times a week. It’s very hot and humid in Texas so I get a lot of oil and dirt and sweat on my face and this does an amazing job in keeping my face smooth and clean.

This is a great product. The first time I bought it I was surprised on how clean and smooth my face looked and felt. The price is pretty good as well. I was looking more to get rid of blackheads in my nose, it didn’t quite work well for it but it did leave my skin smooth
