I've been buying this for years now! I love it! It's gentle enough to use everyday, it gets rid of my makeup if I wash through twice, clears up my breakouts, and makes my face soft after I use it. When I go and try other stuff, I always tend to come back to this.

This product is something I can't live without. St. Ives apricot scrub has been a constant in my life since I was about 15. It's not super harsh or drying and has been a miracle in my life.

I love this. It's perfect for my combination skin. I use it almost daily and haven't had any problem with dry skin or irritation. I've been using it for at least 10 years. I love St. Ives products.

This is my favorite face wash for lots of reasons: It's natural. The scrubbiness isn't too harsh. The smell is great. It doesn't dry out my skin. It's reasonably priced. I have no complaints!

I love this product for the simple fact that it leaves such a refleshing touch kn your face and is easy to apply as well as how much it works on your face. I have done it many times. I use it every morning and every night.

Apricot Scrubs in general are horrible as exfoliators! Please use something more gentle and natural like salt or sugar. The pieces of ground pit cause tiny tears in the skin when you scrub!

I used this product for about 2-3 months. I started noticing how it would minimize on getting acne and would clear my pores, but the only thing I dislike about it is how it leaves my face red.

This blemish control apricot scrub works well. I have sensitive skin so using this more than 3 times per week can be irritating, but it works well. I prefer the apricot scrub over this one.

I really love this scrub. I use it two to three times a week and have for years now. I like the apricot-y smell of it; very refreshing. I do believe it has made my skin softer over the years.
