Doesn't dry my skin!

I think I might have found something that will finally work for me! I wanted something that would work and not be too harsh on my face. The scrub does work and it has this nice smell while you use it. It leaves my skin clearer and smoother.

Ideal for

recommend this product for people who have sensitive and acne prone skin. This scrub is not harsh on the skin. If the skin does go dry, just apply a small amount of Vaseline.

Didn't work for me, too rough.

Sadly, I think I am one of those people where exfoliant scrubs worsen your skin!

I suffer from adult acne and was hoping that from reading the reviews on this website, I would buy and love this product. Well I did buy, but I didn't love it.

For me it seemed to aggravate my skin and cause more breakouts, it didn't really help my pimples at all. But my skin did feel a lot softer after use. It has a really pleasant smell, but it feels really rough on your skin, as if it was made from sand granules off the beach. I've now given this to my sister to finish the bottle.

Because of this I'm now on the search for an exfoliant peel, liquid or mask. Maybe something less harsh will benefit my skin. BRAND RESPONSE: Hi Feliciabardan, We are very sorry to hear about your experience with your St. Ives Naturally Clear Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub. We would recommend trying a gentler product format such as Simple and the Kind to Skin Smoothing Facial Scrub. Thanks.


Probably only use this 2 times a week.

Love this scrub!

I love this scrub! I have been using this for the past 3-4 years and it is by far one of the most affordable yet effective scrubs out there. I have oily skin and am prone to breakouts and blackheads! But this just scrubs away all the dead skin and giving me noticeably clearer and firmer skin! It has also helped with getting rid of those nasty blackheads.

Great 2/3x exfoliator to buff away dead skin

This is an old time favourite of mine - I always use it in conjunction with a cream or gel cleanser about 2 to 3 times a week. I've found that it really helps with clearing away dead skin or rough patches that have been there a while, and using it only a few times a week means my skin isn't scrubbed off too often! It helps me with preventing blackheads and also blemishes which often come up around my nose or cheeks.

Great smelling scrub that left me skin soft and supple!

I really like this scrub for an exfoliator - the apricot scent is lovely and my skin feels very invigorated, soft and supple after using it. Unfortunately, I didn't see any cosmetic results in terms of increasing radiance, preventing blemishes or removing blackheads. It didn't do anything for me in that sphere. But still 4 stars for the smell and feel of my skin after use!


Don't scrub too hard or it may tear holes in your skin.

Apricot scrub with tiny granules that help to scrub off all the dead skin cells, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth.

This product really assisted in removing some of the pesky blackheads that never seem to go away. It has also improved the blemishes on my face. After rinsing my face with water after exfoliating, my skin felt smooth and delicate. The packaging is quite simple yet convenient; it comes in a travel size so you can pack this for travelling as well. I recommend this to anyone who have blackheads/blemish problems.


Be gentle when exfoliating, don't scrub too hard as there are granules that may irritate your skin.

still good!

This has been around for donkeys years but it is just as good as ever. It is a great exfoliater especially from oilier skin. using once a week gives a great deep intense clean leaving the skin feeling clean, soft and smooth. The subtle and appealing scent makes it a really enjoyable cleanser to use.

An oldie but a goodie!

This product works! Simple. It helps keep your pores in check and allows for soft skin. Obviously scrub isn't all you can rely on. What you eat affects your skin. But this is definitely a handy helper!


I like to use mine every 2 days.

Ideal for

Face. However it does help if you have any acne trouble on your back.

Great exfoliant

I love that this scrub is very gritty. I find that some scrubs are too much like plain cleansers with a few grains of stuff in them and they don't really exfoliate properly. But with this one I really feel like it is doing its job. My skin feels so soft and smooth after I use it, and it smells nice!

Actually works on blackheads!

St Ives Apricot Scrub is the first scrub I've used that actually gets rid of blackheads with a constant visible improvement. Ii have tried numerous other scrubs that have to be used in the morning and night every day and the black heads would reappear over night. St Ives only needs to be used 2-3 times a week and the results are a lot better!
The first time I used the scrub, I felt that it was too rough on my skin but by the second time, it felt normal again.
The scent is nice - the apricot is certainly a lot better than the clinical scent some other scrubs have. It's not overpowering.

Overall, I would definitely repurchase this item especially because the price is so affordable too!
