Rated 1 out of 5 by from "new look" code for gross perfume added... I have super sensitive skin and have used this scrub for over 15 years. With the latest "new look" I expected the same formula, I was sadly mistaken. It reeks of perfume so badly the stench if making me ill, on top of that, it's making my cheeks burn. After years of using St Ives products, I'm

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gentle scrub I've been using the apricot scrub every other day for about 2 weeks, and I am very happy with it. I like the subtle fruity smell, nothing fake or over-powering. I also like the rich, creamy texture that has a great grittiness to it. After each use, it has left my skin feeling, soft, and fresh. Most importantly, it has not made me break out, some new products can wreck havoc on my skin, but not this one. Very happy with the product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Deep cleansing! If you're looking for a scrub that definitely gets deep down I'm your pores this scrub may be for you. I wasn't a fan of the smell but I liked that it was paraben and oil free. Also, this cleanser does not have microbeads which are not good for the environment. This is not a product that I would use often since I often use my face wash to wash off my makeup and you wouldn't use a scrub on your eyes. Although, for someone who frequently uses scrubs, this is a good cost efficient product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy This Classic for the Colder Seasons I have been purchasing St. Ives Fresh Skin Exfoliating Apricot Scrub since early high school, since I first discovered it. It is now a staple in my house used by both my boyfriend and I. They recommend you use it 3-4 times a week, but I use it 6-7 days a week without fail. Because I have sensitive and dry skin I need a exfoliator that will do its job by removing dead dry skin as well as being a gentle formula. THIS IS IT! The apricot scent leaves me feeling clean and fresh, and the creamy yet exoliating texture leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized. I am also an avid tanner and I recommend using this before tanning (indoors or out), the St. Ives exfoliator will take you tan to new levels. This should be a must have on everyones back to school list!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from St. Ives Fresh Skin Exfoliating Apricot Srub I really love the fact the scrub uses natural exfoliantes and is sulfate, paraben, and oil free, which is something I look for in the products I use. The scrub has a nice subtle pleasant smell with a coarse grain. I prefer a finer grain in my exfoliants for a deeper clean, as I found this one a bit harsh. Having said this, the St. Ives Apricot Scrub did leave my skin feeling smooth. Overall, I think it's a good product; however, I am still uncertain whether I will continue using this one, specifically due to the grain.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Exfoliator St. Ives is a good exfoliator with microbeads that deep clean the skin. It smells like apricot and has 100% natural exfoliates. It works very well and leaves skin feeling clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I tend to have dry patches on my face and when I wear make up it shows thru and absolutly hate it. So i was shopping about a year ago trying to find a face scrub that wont irretate my skin but will also get rid of all my dry patches. I saw St. Ives and thought i would give it a try after reading threw a bunch of different ones and I am glad i did. It helped get all my dry patches and clean my skin really nicely. I love how soft my face was after the first wash and after several how nice my skin looked. I really recommend this. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THEE. HOLY. GRAIL. I have been using St. Ive's since I was 15 years old (I am 25). I remember the first time trying this product as a teenager & since then I have been an advocate for St. Ive's especially this specific product. It not only has a lovely scent, but you feel it working as you use it -remember to only massage softly, the product already has granules in it so it does the scrub work for you. I use St. Ive's Apricot Scrub once or twice a week in order to manage my skin's pores & blackheads, but not too often in order to maintain my skin's natural balance of oils. Definitely use this product with the 'Timeless Skin Mineral Clay Firming Mask' and then the 'Fresh Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer', they are the perfect trio. I more than recommend this product and honestly would not know what to do if it were no longer available. Thank you St. Ive's and please continue to care about your customers and the environment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective, environmentally friendly This is an exfoliating face wash that you’re supposed to use 3-4 times a week. I usually just use a flannel and soap in the mornings, but this has been a nice addition to my nighttime routine. I like that it uses natural exfoliants (no microbeads), and it’s sulfate- and paraben-free. It’s also not drying, and it leaves my face feeling really soft. I wouldn’t say that there’s any particular downside to this, but a washcloth is a much cheaper way to exfoliate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT scrub! Purchased the jar when I saw it on sale this past week and tried it for the first time. I used it on dry skin in the shower for a stronger scrub and am so glad I found this! It definitely rivals the more expensive products I've tried before and is so much more affordable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great improvements on a memorable classic While this product is certainly not new (I've been using this product inconsistently for over 10 years now), it definitely has improved. I actually didn't think there was room for improvement, but St. Ives did an amazing job of reinvigorating a classic. The smell is better; alsmot energizing, so great to use in the morning. It exfoliates like a dream!! The only thing I would say it could use is a bit more moisture. But overall, amazing product !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIFE CHANGING I happened to find this inexpensive product at my local gerocery store while looking for face cleansers. I grabbed it out of pure curiosity and it literally has changed my skin. The very first use I saw and felt a difference. My skin was softer, glowier, and more toned. I’ve always had problems with textured skin and redness, but after using this my problems are gone. I’ve also seen a dramatic difference in my makeup. I use this scrub every other day and my makeup has never looked so flawless. This is a must have!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value I love how this product has the deep exfoliating that I have found in much more expensive brands. For the price and the quality I will be keeping this in my skincare regimen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely scent A very strong but nice appricot scent. Large/strong expoliant leaves your face feeling really soft and clean but i definitely wouldn't use it everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great great scrub! I have been using it, non stop for the last 2 weeks and i love it. I was in the market for a new exfoliator when i got this one. I use it on my face but also body and it makes my skin feel clean and fresh. I have really dry skin and this gets rid of my fleaky dry skin. The only upside down for me is the fragrance, is way too strong for me. If you can past it, its a great product. (Once its rinse off its goes away)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from St. Ives® Fresh Skin Exfoliating Apricot Scrub I like this scrub, it comes in a decently sized squeezable bottle, and exfoliates very well, especially around the nose area. My skin is a little on the dry side so I use a moisturizer after but the scrub doesn't dry my skin out compared to some other scrubs I've used. I have tried other scrubs in this line that I haven't liked but I would buy this one again, although I am not a fan of the apricot scent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves skin feeling soft Usually I'm reluctant to try exfoliating products because I find that a lot of them leave my skin feeling irritated. I was surprised to find this one did the complete opposite. My skin felt softer and looked healthier. I also used it a few days after I got a slight sunburn on my face and it got rid of all the flaking skin and left a smooth surface. Overall, I will definitely continue using this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this face scrub !<br /> <br /> I have used this for years and anytime I try another face scrub I am always comparing it to this one. I haven't found anything to beat this yet, the little beads in it are amazing and isn't too rough on my skin. The fragrance is always a refreshing scent that makes me feel good morning or night. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft by getting rid of any dead skin. <br /> <br /> Highly recommended even over high end face scrubs. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leaves skin feeling fresh and smooth! This exfoliater was excellent. I found the scrub left your skin silky and smooth after using. It is also true that it is oil free. No oily residue left after use. It does have a strong scent to it though. If you're impartial to strong scents this may not be the best product for you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Facial Scrub Years ago, I used to use the Apricot scrub for acne prone skin which left my skin more oily in the morning. Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub is so much better! It left my skin very soft and I had a nice glow to my skin after using it. I love the scent and consistency of this specific scrub. I received this free to review, but I could definitely see myself purchasing this in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have already been through 3 of these bottles and I am about to purchase my fourth. It is literally everything! This scrub not only exfoliates my skin but the saloc acid helps keep the pimples away. If I see a breakout coming I use it at night and by morning it will have gone down. I have been using this since 2011 and I got both my brother and boyfriend hooked on it! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Crushed walnut shell powder is the gentle-yet-effective secret behind many of our scrubs. After harvesting the walnuts in California, we carefully mill them to just the right size for a deep but thorough exfoliation.
