I have used this product in the past. Unless I used the exfoliating scrub, my face did not feel clean!! I did this twice a day however, and when I spoke to a dermatologist she advised me that it was not a good idea to be using a facial scrub every day. This was because while it may make my skin feel AMAZING right now, in the future it may leave my skin more prone to wrinkles. But this product smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. Would definitely recommend it.

Tips: Since dermatologists recommend that you do not exfoliate your face every day, perhaps only use this product once to twice a week.
My dry skin didn't really like this scrub. Was a little too rough and left my skin striped. I could only use this once a week tops. May be better for oily skin but definitely wouldn't recommend to those with dry or sensitive skin.
Tips: Don't rub too hard!
I love the St Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub! It is my "go to" facial scrub which I have used for the past few years. After washing off the scrub, it leaves my skin and face feeling clean and refreshed which is nice! It also doesn't dry my skin up, and since my T-zone tends to get a bit oily after a long day (or when my face feels like it needs a bit of freshening), it helps to remove the groggy oily feeling off my face, which is the one thing I really like about this scrub! Another good thing about this scrub is that it smells nice.
On the other hand, the scrub can be a bit harsh (depending on how much you scrub you apply) and may hurt your skin after. Instead, I only use a little dab of the scrub so that I don't hurt my face with too much scrub. Also, I'm not too sure if they still do this, but this product used to have two types available - one for normal skin types and another more gentle one available for sensitive skin types. I have tried both the normal one and the sensitive skin one, and they are both great! I prefer the sensitive skin one more though as it is less harsh on the skin (it has gentle microbeads instead) but still leaves your face with the same fresh and clean feeling!
Tips: Don't apply too much on your face at once as it can be rough on your skin. Also, a little dab of the scrub on your lips works great as a lip exfoliator! Be careful not to use the scrub everyday though, as it will exfoliate your skin. Instead, use it once every few days or so a week.
This facial scrub is the best i have used, I love that grittier feel it has, after just one use i noticed my skin was alot smoother and after 4 use's my face is the best i have seen it in months. I use it every 2nd night after a days work to scrub away that old skin plus i have noticed that my night creme is absorbed better also, so with the help of this awesome scrub i have noticf visably smaller pores which i never had before. My skin is very bad for breakouts but since using have had less.
Tips: I only put about the size of a 10cent peice in my palm this is plenty and its not too rough on your face and massage round gently.
This is one of my favorite affordable scrubs. I have repurchased this many times and use it every second day to give my face a good exfoliate. Makes skin super smooth and fresh feeling. It is affordable and effective at removing dead skin cells and renewing the skin. I use it a couple of times a week though as it is a coarse scrub. Recommended :)
I really enjoyed the apricot scent of this product and it does what it says it should. In fact, I found this product so effective that it dried out my face too much, even if I only used a small amount every now and then. So you know what? I used it as a body exfoliant instead and it works perfect!
Tips: Also give this a go on any rough parts of your body such as your heals. It's multi-purpose!
For $10.95, you are better off spending your money elsewhere - preferably on a product that is gentler to your skin.
I used to own this scrub. I would use this scrub every day to exfoliate...but it is way too harsh on skin, especially on the face. Even when I used it weekly, this exfoliator would dry up my skin immediately.
The texture was like any other exfoliator. The scent not unpleasant - fruity, but can be a bit strong.
You'd really need to have very tough or callused skin in order for this product to be properly effective. I have sensitive skin, so that was a dealbreaker.
I Find this facial scrub really nice!!! it is gentle enough on my skin to use every day to help un block my pores from a days worth of make up. the scent is not overwhelming just quite suttle, the packaging is pretty standard white tubular shape, can sometimes be quite tight to pop the top open, overall for a cheaper supermarket branded scrub I find it does a great job
Tips: with the tips of your finger rub gently in circular motions :)
I deal with peoples skins everyday. The biggest concern for me as a therapist is how harsh or coarse this product is. The face should be assisted in exfoliation with a light buffering. Rough exfoliants can cause trauma to the skin sometimes resulting in long term damage and redness. I would rather not exfoliate than use something this intense on my face and therefore would not recommend it else where
Tips: Look for a light exfoliant, scrubbing hard on the skin can actually make the skin worse, especially those trying to combat breakouts. Exfoliate a maximum of twice a week, (3 if your skin is severely dry) and don't use a cleanser with exfoliating beads within it
This scrub is so harsh and abrasive and for a long time I was scared it had permanantly damaged my skin (I used it for ages without realising it was causing my skin problems!) I much prefer chemical exfoliators now and would never buy this again.
