Have used this scrub for yrs. Smells great and the grains are not too small to smooth your skin. I use this twice a wk especially before going out somewhere special. It makes my skin soft so it makes it nice for my primer and makeup to go on and look smooth

I love the Apricot scrub line. I would suggest using another cleanser like the It Works brand so it will not be as drying and will clean away anything that the exfoliating had left behind.

I love how this product is gentle but still gets the job done the only down fall is I wish it was a sudsey type fash wash and not just a scrub I would just feel more clean with the bubbles

I've been using it for about 3 months and it has made my acne on my face even worse than what it was before so I stopped using it so I give it 1 star. But it work good for my back acne so for that I'll give it 4 stars.

By using this product I was able to get rid of all my black heads. Not to mention it took away a lot of the grease on my face. As a runner my skin can get pretty bad, but this helped a lot.

St. Ives is just phenomenal. This dark spot scrub works so well on my face in the mornings when I wake up. I always put this product on either in the mornings or nighttime. I absolutely love this scrub. It has this soothing smell to it which smells so good.

Love it love it love it! I've used this for years and haven't tried anything that works as good. I even caught my husband using it when he got back from deployment to slough off the desert.

I love this product. It is the best facial scrub that i have used. It is a little harsh on skin due to the exfoliating sand in it. It removes makeup well and leaves skin feeling refreshed.

Although it might feel nice (for some!) to use a scrub, I find this product to be too harsh. The scrub is pretty big grain, which doesn't feel great. Many dermatologist have also told me that scrubs like this can be harmful, as the grains rip open your pours and can enlarge them rather than "exfoliating".

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