Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I’ve used this for years with great results. It keeps my skin smooth and controls breakouts. My skin looks dull when I don’t use it so it’s become a regular part of my skin care regimen. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING STUFF! This Apricot Scrub is what I use for my daily routine, shower routine, days a pimple pops on my face..this stuff if amazing and it works fast! I recommend this to everyone who has acne prone skin, good or bad. You’re face just feels so soft and refreshed after. I usually buy the 10 oz containers and that’ll usually last me a few months since I only use a small amount of it every time. I seldom will use this in the morning but I usually shower at night and that’s when I’ll use it so it can sit on my face while I shampoo. Before St.Ives I was going back and forth with other acne products and they just didn’t work as good as this scrub. Believe me I’d rather use St. Ives Acne Scrub than Proactiv(yes I have tried Proactiv). This is truly an amazing product and wouldn’t change to other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CLASSIC! Used this since high school (am now 25) and my mom used it since high school as well. Gentle but exfoliating. I will always keep it a staple. Just make sure to keep it on no more than 5-7 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been using this stuff for years and love it! It is a good deep scrub, without drying or irritating my sensitive skin. It smells great and really makes my skin glow. I would recommend to anybody who needs a good exfoliant without it being too harsh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE IT!! I got this for the first time and I tried it before bed. I woke up in the morning to find myself with clearer skin. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT. It really works and made me feel better of myself. If you really have problems with acne I really do recommend it. For it’s price it’s definitely worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I never realized it was a scrub until now, but it is sooooo good!! It left my skin so smooth and so luminous I love it! My acne was super controlled after just 6 uses. I recommend that you guys use it at least 4 times a week, or once every 2 days, whatever your schedule may be. Overall, for the price point, of just $6, I think it is so worth it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I started using this like a week ago. I cant tell a huge difference but I didnt notice that I had one big pimple and it started drying up when I used this. Ive used this product before but it was my cousins so it wasnt mine to continuously use and review. But it smells alright and its not too harsh of a scrub. I got it at Walgreens for like $5 something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used this a while back and to be honest didnt see any changes but i felt the urge to continue using it. Then mario badescu was a huge thing that flaired up on social media and so obviously i thought that i should give it ago. It was definitely more on the pricey side and i was like well lets try it out. Biggest mistake ever. It made my skin worse and now i see that st. Ives did make a difference, i was just in the pharmacy walking around looking for stuff that said acne. There was nothing! Only stuff like blemishes or scars but nothing that said acne. And then i saw the beautiful st. Ivesi will gladly start using this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This scrub is very grainy and harsh. However, I give it 5 stars because it really gets rid of the dead skin! I use this once a week and make sure to be very gentle when scrubbing. Its great for exfoliation and preventing future acne. I havent found that it does anything for my existing acne.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS SCRUB!!! This is the best acne control scrub out there. I started with ProActiv, which gave me horrible rashes, then Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Acne Scrub, which gave me chemical burns, then regular salicylic acid scrub which dried out my skin. This moisturized my skin and made it all an even tone! It also made my face super soft and free of impurities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my favorite product from St. Ives. Keeps my acne cleared and away and exfoliates with out being harsh on my skin.

We adore these fuzzy fruits. Depending on the season, you’ll find us in either sunny California, or somewhere in North Africa, picking out the juiciest ones. It’s how we get the fragrant extracts and kernel oils we want for our scrubs and body washes.

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.
