Acne Control Apricot Scrub
Acne Control Apricot Scrub is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1453.
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 Smells AMAZING and exfoliates really well. I would recommend only using it once to twice a week and not daily as it really does a good job at removing dead skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely STUNNED I’ve only been using this product for a couple of days and I’ve already seen a difference. A day after i got this product i was outside sweating and i was worried that sweating would make me start to break out. As soon as i got inside i got in the shower and used this product and felt so relieved that i didn’t break out.

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 I swear by this stuff. I adore it. Makes your skin so soft and clean. The package makes it so easy to grab in the shower. Its affordable, and I will forever buy this product. I recommend it to everyone.

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 really like this face scrub. It could be too harsh for sensitive skin. It smells good. After I wash it off the scrub my skin feels really soft. This is affordable and you can purchase this product anywhere. I recommend trying this. I would repurchase this again.

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 Good This is a great product I highly recomend it, my skin has been breaking out for about 4 years now and this is this clearest it has been for a while

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it I love how affordable it is, and my skin feels so smooth and clean, I use it two times per week, and the day after use I start seeing how my spots and pimples start to fade, it’s amazing I love it!

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!
