Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped cleared my skin in less than 2 weeks I have tried other face washes that would help clear my acne, but this did the work! I rarely break out now ever since I started using this. It does the work and deep exfoliate your skin leaving it smooth! It's my go-to for combination skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some people say this scrub is super abrasive, and I can see that. If you have sensitive skin, I would be very gentle with this. I have been using this scrub for years about twice a week and have never had any problems! It makes my face super soft and smells great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Exfoliating! I really love this face wash. I first tried the travel size, which I did not really like. However, I later tried to full size one and I am upsessed with it, I can’t stop using it and it makes my skin feel so good and smooth. It also smells delicious. If you want to try it, get the full size it is so much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have mild psoriasis on my cheeks that tend to flare up randomly. This face scrub is amazing at removing flakes and dry skin. It leaves you feeling smooth and baby soft! I usually follow it with a face lotion and eye cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend! This product is very good. I recommend this face scrub. If you have sensitive skin I don't think you would want to use this all the time, maybe only a one time a week. Its very exfoliating. I personally don't have sensitive skin so this scrub works very well for me. If I use any other face wash I break out. As soon as I use this product my face clears up. Buy this scrub you wot regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS!! so good and fresh. When I break out it helps a lot. It lasts a very long time. Good price! Maybe instead of doing just a six oz they should do more of a 12 oz. I would definitely buy this again and I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not too rough and helps with blemish control. I use mine every other day to get rid of dead skin without causing damage to my face.
Date published: 2019-05-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not too abrasive, just right I thought that the salycylic acid combined with the abrasive scrubbing beads would wreak havoc on my sensitive acne-prone skin but it did just the opposite! It was NOT at all "too much" or too harsh/strong for my acne-prone sensitive skin prone to adult acne and hyperpigmentation, in fact it cleared up the hormonal adult acne I always get during the week of my period AND it even cleared up some of my stubborn dark spots left over from acne that has healed. I can't say enough good things or recommend this product enough for people with über sensitive skin who also battle with adult acne/adult hormonal acne!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cleanser never fails anyone haha. I really like it a lot and I love how clean it leaves my skin feeling. It does at times irritate my skin if I use it daily because of the exfoliants in it otherwise it is a really good cleanser and it is super affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using St. Ives products for twenty years and have always been happy with them. They are cost effective and get the job done. I wish they would bring back the blue clay mask - haven't seen that in years and it was the most effective blackhead mask I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this! I have been using it for years and will keep choosing this product over the more expensive main brand products. Doesnt dry out my skin too much but at the same time really does a great job of exfoliating!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product for a gentle exfoliating scrub to use about once a week. It does not irritate my skin. I will say that the Walmart version does have the same exact ingredients and is very comparable if you are looking for a cheaper option, but the product I very affordable as is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This scrub is so freaking amazing! The smell of it is just amazing. I love how the scrub feels on my face and that it's an actual DEEP scrub. Always leaving my skin glowy and feeling soft. I use this at least 3 times a week and it does wonders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% recommend This acne scrub saved my skin! I have excitemented with so many well known brand acne scrubs that just made my face worse or didn’t work at all until I found my Stt Ives. This scrub took my acne bumpy skin and transformed it in less than a week!!!!!!! I couldn’t be happier with my skin and glow i now have from this product! So I strongly recommend this product if you feel like nothing can save your skin from the clutches of acne, just try this product! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Always Go Back to This! I tried other scrubs, but they don’t compare to this. I keep coming back to this scrub because I love how deep it cleans and it helps with my bad adult acne. Plus with this, I’m able to scrub away my dry patches near my mouth and the side of my nose. On the plus side, I’m able to go Foundationless! It has also became a family staple in our home. Since my brother started to show acne on his face, I would say get some Apricot St.Ives Scrub. Now he has great skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is amazing I love using this and at first I became discouraged because I wasn't seeing the results that I wanted. After a few weeks all that there was of acne was just some on my forehead. My face has evened out in color because before it was very red and painful, now I feel happy about my face!
