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 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 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 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 Skin feeling very fresh! I love this product!! I have used it before and I love it. My skin feels so clean and fresh after. I love the exfoliating aspect of it to slough off that dead skin. Smells good and really feels terrific!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exfoliating scrub Skin is feeling smooth and refreshed after using this product! The subtle apricot scents made for a relaxing experience. I will continue to use this product and will recommend it to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Fresh Smell I love the St. Ives face scrub. It has an incredible smell that brightens my mood. The scrub leaves my face feeling smooth and soft and doesn't dry it out.

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 Skin so fresh I am always makeup free I would give it a 10 but I am only familiar with this particular product. However I am loyal to the St. Ives brand by using this in part of my beauty regimen as it is multi functional. It's my go to for when I wash my face the Apricot scent not only smells amazing but carries me through the day keeping me feeling as11926 thistledown fresh as I am blemish free. Whats more is the fine powder granulates of walnut shells make for an exfoliant that is gentle enough to be deeply profound that the whole body can benefit from its use. Cleaning thoroughly I feel renewed, soft skin emerges glowing and smooth. The price is perfect for my pocket book but it's cost isn't fair if reflective to the awesomeness & quality of its effectiveness to work. Products on the market are often 10x or more costly due mostly if not only because of the name or brand used in the content of marketing being a pretty package

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exfoliates well! This product really helped with exfoliating my acne-prone skin, I usually remove my makeup first with a makeup remover then wash my face, then exfoliate but this product was very effective in removing my makeup in one go. It smelled really great too! I will probably purchase this again because it doesn't promote more breakouts and seems to be working at softening my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scrub! I've used St. Ives facial scrubs before and I've loved them since day one! I used to use the salicylic acid based one in my teens but this similar one is perfect for my skin now that it's calmed down. I love the deep cleaning feeling it gives and how soft it leaves my skin afterward. Awesome product for scrubbing away dead skin and getting rid of pesky blackheads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love St. Ives The bottle says new but I’ve been buying this product for years. Maybe it’s a new formula? The bottle says no parabens and sulfites and I don’t remember it saying that before. It’s still a great product. I love that it uses a natural exfoliate, it does a great job of exfoliating without being abrasive. The product does have a scent but it doesn’t bother me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not suitable for face but great for legs! I'm not a fan of St. Ives Apricot Scrub for my face. It's too harsh and causes irritation. Overtime, I find it worsens my existing acne rather than improves it. However, I do like using this scrub on my legs before shaving. It exfoliates and gives me a closer shave, but is pretty interchangeable with other scrubs I've tried for this purpose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gentle fragrance,Gentle scrub! I have very sensitive skin, I was skeptical to try the scrub at first but it felt amazing on my skin. It left my pores looking and feeling clean. The smell was great and wasn't too fragrant or overpowering. I enjoyed the clean feel without the tightness that I normally experience with a scrub. I will certainly be continuing this treatment!

Apricots are our thing. So we know those deliciously fuzzy fruits well. They come from sun-drenched California and North Africa for juicy fruits from different crops, any time of year.
Apricots Inspire many of our products and we love every bit of them – stone and all. Hurrah!


It goes without saying: a scrub should be soft on skin. Which brings us to walnut shells. Crushed walnut shells. This natural exfoliant keeps skin soft and glowing.
Our walnuts are grown in orchards in California, and harvested in the fall where the shells are milled into a fine powder so they have specially rounded edges, which means a softer scrub. Just the way we like it.

Dispense scrub onto fingertips and massage onto damp skin. Spread in small circular motions to wake your skin’s natural circulation. When you’re done, rinse and glow! For best results, use up to 3-4 times a week.
