Love this scrub
Both my husband and I love using this facial scrub. I have acne prone skin and now find that if I use this regularly it keeps the acne at bay. I have at times stopped using it for about a week and I really noticed the difference it became clogged and dull, so I know that this really works. My husband also finds this great for his skin as he shaves everyday and so used to get so many ingrown hairs and razor burn, but this has all gone now too. I love it and it smells great too. I have been using this for about 9 months now and will continue to do so. Thanks St Ives!

It was heaven but now it doesnt work.
I started using this product many years ago and iv used it for nearly 3 years. It was amazing for my skin and it was the only product that i used everyday when i want a fresh cleanse skin without having seconds thoughts that it will break me out. I had no pimples except one or two when it was time of the month but other then that it was perfect. After i scrub i would use a vitamin E cream moisturiser and i was done. If i wanted to put some foundation on my skin was smooth and soft. But after five months before turning 24 years of age, my skin changed i started getting pimples where i would not even imagine getting it. My confidence was an all time low. I tried so many products from clearasil to dove to clean and clear. This product is beautiful if it works for you. But unfortunitly it stopped working for me.

Best facial scrub for combination skin
I have combination skin which is prone to break outs when I don't exfoliate in time. I have tried a few other facial scrubs as we beauty fanatics often do, but I know I will always come back to this one! It contains the right amount of cream cleanser and scrubbing particles to gently exfoliate my face. After rinsing my face felt fresh and clear, there was no burning sensation and my face wasn't tight. I also love the apricot aroma lingering on my face, which feels very nice!

Great as a body scrub
I initially purchased this to use as a facial scrub and thought my skin could handle an abrasive scrub but in the end found it too harsh and it made my break outs flare up.
I just started using it in the shower as a scrub and am LOVING it! I use it mainly on my legs as I noticed they weren't as soft and I also cross my legs constantly so I have a little rough patch with a few in growns. With a few uses its already improved! Happy I worked out a way to use this as it was just sitting around taking up space.

I love this scrub it works really well. It has grainy texture and feels great against the skin and gets all the dead skin off and clears and softens the skin. It worked to get rid of most blackheads for a while but then the blackheads started to come back. But I use this scrub occasionally just because it smells great!

The Classic Scrub that works
I've been using this ever since I was 5, I would sneak a dollop from the bathroom cabinet. It has worked so well as the grains are not too fine and not too harsh, leaving the skin perfectly exfoliated. It smells delicious and just like apricots. It lathers well so a little goes a long way making the product very good value for money. On the "blemish control" side it does fight blemishes however be sure to use it only once or twice a week as it can be very drying, stripping skin of natural oils.

I have been using this scrub since i was 11! It has kept my skin clean & fresh for years! Granted that it can be harsh on the skin f you scrub to hard its still a great product, I found that if you use a small amount and rub very gently in circular motions and splash with cold water its perfect!

this is a great product, if you use in moderation, i suggest using this every other day or even once a week depending on your skin type. it worked well for me so i im able to use it every second day, it leaves my skin so smooth and visibly it reduced my pores. and also it smells great!

Way too harsh - absolutely terrible product
This scrub is honestly one of the most harshest roughest facial scrubs I have ever come across in my life. Bits of nut shells for exfoliation? i was shocked. I even tried it a few times to be sure, I tried using it as lightly and gentle as I could. but the texture is SO rough and it leaves your skin red raw. It even felt like it was going to cause abrasions or bleeding on my skin. I don't know how this scrub made it into a bottle for a facial product. I threw this out because it was that bad. The texture and consistency of it was jsut ridiculous, it was literally so rough and harsh that it was acutally PAINFUL to use.

Good exfoliant, albeit slightly harsh
Quite effective for exfoliation, I use it around 2 times a week since I think it's a bit harsh for daily use! The claims about blemish control is a bit dubious, since it's only staying on your skin for a few moments - but this product is quite decent for exfoliation. Smell is also very nice.
