I love this scrub I've been using it for over 6 years now! Whenever I feel like my skin is getting oily I use this scrub and it really clears out all the excess dirt and build up. It also leaves your skin super smooth!

Works pretty well and has natural exfoliants! only complaint is that it doesn't foam up enough for my liking, so i feel like its not treating my acne well enough for me to only use that every day

The exfoliation is nice but a bit harsh since the granules are huge. It doesn't irritate my sensitive but it also doesn't help much with acne or my stubborn blackheads. It's an ok product.

I have been using St. Ives for a few years now. It's great for sensitive skin and really like it. It minimizes the pores on my nose and it is a quick easy beauty ritual. I use it at least once a week and make sure to have a travel size one for when I travel.

I love st. Ives. It's hard to find a facial wash that actually works and does the job I pay for it to do. It completely removed and controls my acne besides, that one week a month, which go away almost immediately thanks to my amazing smelling apricot scrub!

I seriously needed something to clear out my blemishes and this definitely helped me minimize them! Not only does it minimizes pores and blemishes for me, it also exfoliates too! It leaves my skin feeling great and clean!

I use to use this scrub for years and didn't realize the difference it made it my skin. I have recently began using it again and I will not stop again. It has helped diminish my pores and makes my face feel super smooth!

I have tried many facial scrubs any either they were always to harsh or did nothing at all. This is the only one that does the job right and I swear by it. The scent is also very pleasant.
