Effective but harsh
I cannot help but like this scrub.
Bottom line - it works. Very well.
The issue? It's probably too harsh. It's full of ground up apricot shells. While I undserstand the appeal of a scrubby scrub, my skin reacts better and looks younger from a more gentle scrub, one with moisture added.
This one is very well suited to hands and feet.

Amazing! If i ever have a break out it instantly dries out the blemish. Is probably the harsest out of the various types of scrubs St Ives sell but I love it.
Good if you wear make up all day or have had a sweaty gym sess. Cleans off any build up of make up or moisturiser from the night before. Skin is soft and keeps pimples away.

I love you but I hate you.
I highly enjoy this scrub as it has a lovely Apricot scent to it and is a very good exfoliator that leaves the skin clean and soft, given you use it sparingly and very occasionally. It is a little too harsh for my sensitive skin and the beads are a little too big for my liking -- I prefer a face scrub with smaller beads in it. But it works wonders as a body scrub!

I used to love you..
I used to love this product in till i heard its actually so BAD for your skin and it is only a temp hide away for blemishes.
It smells lovely, and i wish i could keep using it but i don't want to harm my skin anymore :( wahhh

Smells so nice and easy to use. Easy to scrub onto the face in the shower and easy to wash off. My skin was feeling so dry because of winter but after using it 3 times a week so far, my skin is so soft.

A little rough
I don't have particularly sensitive skin, but I found this exfoliator to be a little rough. I would not recommend using this often. However, it does do a good job and smells really nice.

After using many types of differnt face washes for my pimples I thought Clearasil was working. But a friend told me its not really good for your face and it was why my face was so dry.
She told me to use this, and thats all I use now!
My face isnt dry and my pimples are actually gone!
I use it about 3 times a week, and you dont need to use that much so it lasts so long!

Gotta Love St Ives!!
I do love this scrub!!
It has a nice, sheer scent to it. It comes out of the tube as quite a grainy, orangey paste. Although, I do think that the beads in it may be just a little bit too big. It's got a lovely consistency and it's very easy to dispense of the product.
In terms of blemish eliminating, it could have done better. I found that it didn't really decrease my spots, but it did leave my skin incredibly soft which was delightful. I use it about 3 times a week and that seems to work wonderfully.
Overall, it isn't my favourite scrub, but still is great for the price!! (:

One of the best products for Acne control on the market!
Use only once a week and don't scrub too hard as you will leave abrasions on your skin. Make sure you slather lots of your favourite moisturiser (for sensitive skin) on afterwards.
