I love the Apricot Scrub, it smells so fresh and great and leaves my skin feeling so soft and so clean! I just love the feeling of my skin after I use it! I definitely recommend trying it out!

Not my favorite product, the rough exfoliant caused me to break out. Might work better for some one with less sensitive skin. Great smell and I like that they use so many natural ingredients.

I have used this scrub since I was a teenager and I really love how well it cleans and exfoliates my skin. I read that using harsh exfoliating scrubs on your face can actually make your pores bigger, so I'm always very gentle when I use products like this.
The scrub rinses clean and doesn't irritate my skin.

I purchased this product for some problem areas I was having on my chin. It cleared it up without over-drying my skin. I have used other St. Ives products and have always had good results.

Not a bad scrub for the price. It smells nice and fresh too however it does not really exfoliate ALL the dead skin off my face. It comes with a lot of product so it was worth the purchase.

Makes your skin soft with the incredible natural exfoliants. Lasts a long time, seeing as you don't need to use a huge amount. Smells good. Inexpensive and easy on your skin! A must use!

I love the smell of this stuff, apricots are a favorite fruit of mine. St. Ives has also always been a favorite pastime of mine, they have amazing products. I use this product mainly as an exfoliant. I do have blackheads and it doesn't seem to help with those so that is the only con to this product for me.

I love this product, it's one of my holy grail products. It leaves your skin feeling like butta. I use it every other day because my skin is combination and some days my pores be acting cray.

I love the feeling of the beads of my face and this product never leaves my face feeling dry. Very good and it's worth the buy. I recommend to people with combination skin like oily or acne.

This scrub makes me feel so amazing! My skin feels so clean after one wash with this. I actually feel like I am getting a good clean wash. I actually feel like it is ridding my skin of pimples and that is amazing to me! :)
