I've used this product for over 12 years (when I was 15) and have always loved it.
Love the packaging, you aren't fighting for product near the end because the lid is on the bottom.
The fact you can really feel the beads means you have more control - should you need to exfoliate in specific areas a bit more you can!
It's quite a thick cream & I tend to lather it on my face & leave it for about 10 minutes. When I scrub it off I instantly feel smooth!
It does have an apricot hint to it - perfect match with the St Ives Apriot Body Wash
