I love this scrub. Not the best scrub for exfoliation, but that’s not why I use this specific product. This scrub, is hands down, the best smelling scrub I have ever used. (I actually think of it more as an exfoliator than a scrub) Only a little is needed, in fact, less is more with this scrub. (too much and it will give you a burning sensation and dry skin out). I have always loved apricots and this doesn’t smell like that fake synthetic fruit scent almost every fruit flavoured beauty product in the supermarket has these days. It’s not the best performing scrub I’ve used, although it is certainly not a bad scrub, in fact, it’s very good considering the price. Sometimes I’ll use it just to smell the apricot scent on my face. But do not over exfoliate! Love the smell of apricots. And very good value.

Lotions/ Creams -St. Ives -Oil Infused Nourishing Honey

I was excited to try the St. Ives Nourishing Honey Lotion because I've tried other St. Ives lotions and they worked well, but this one doesn't work as well for me than the other ones did. I could barely smell it and I enjoy a nice smelling lotion.

I have psoriasis and this is the only body wash I’ve used that doesn’t irritate me. It smells good and doesn’t dry me out. I just wished it came with a pump!

I’ve been looking for a replacement for lush dark angels since I couldn’t stand the mess of using that scrub...I’m liking this one so far!

It comes out in a milky consistency, I like to mix it with a few drop of water to make it easier to spread on the face. The scrub granules are plentiful and not sharp feeling on the skin. It leaves my face feeling smooth and doesn’t dry me out after using it! Nice if you’re looking for a gentle, effective scrub.

Wholly, fire, burning, hell!!! I bought this last minute bc I was staying out my house for a little. I thought the packaging was cute, and it smells like heaven. It even felt good on the initial application, I rubbed very gently and applied a heavy cream (the Cerave one). About after an hour, my skin was tight, sore, dry, red, and everything I was avoiding. I don’t even know why I bought this, I must have lost brain cells that week, lost my mind, I really don’t know! I say this bc most skincare professionals will say to never scrub your skin if you have dry skin. Well they are right! If you are a teenager, maybe that’s okay. I’ll be thirty soon and this is a big NO. First of all, this doesn’t even provide even- exfoliation. Secondly, it kills the lipid barrier and breaks down the protective barrier. Once I bought my usual cleanser, my skin went back to normal. I no longer have psoriasis or acne because all I do is cleanse gently and use a matte moisturizer. People with acne may actually not have acne, if it’s itchy, you need to immediately get a matte cream or lotion and it’ll stop feeding the yeast that thrives in oil. The fatty acid build up causes redness and yeast populations. Once I did, I stopped having “acne” and facial dryness. My face and body is now one-hundred percent better. You also need to switch over to powder makeup. In addition, your cleanser needs to be gentle and mild, so it doesn’t strip the barrier and cause more oil. I know doctors say avoid Foaming cleansers bc they are more drying, but actually if you have rosacea and yeast you need that ASAP. The Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser and that Cerave hydrating one will make it flare. I hope I helped!

A few months back,I read about how harsh this is for use on the skin as it's extremely abrasive and the beads can cause micro tears on the skin which is bad.
I have bought this twice before though.
Once for my face a few years back and once again a few months ago,strictly for use on my body as I like to exfoliate my body.
All I remember(because it's been a few years) from when I was using it on my face,is that I didn't experience any issues with it and it worked ok for me,perhaps because I had really great skin at the time anyway.
Keep in mind,it IS a very exfoliating scrub.
A few months ago,I was looking for a good scrub for the body and I stumbled upon this at a store.I bought it even though I had read about the danger of micro tears a while back,mainly because the skin on our body is less sensitive than the one on our face.
As a body scrub it does a good job,especially if you use it twice a week after a warm shower.
I want to add it has a light fruity apricot scent.Also,because of the nature of the packaging,it's hard to get the last bits of product out of the bottle.
I definitely wouldn't use it on my face due to it being too abrasive for the skin on the face but I would use it on my body.

This cream was been suggested to me more than ten times by friends,relatives and whoever knows that I'm suffering from skin dryness so I finally decided to give it a go
It was priced 7$ in my local cosmetic shop which is a crazy good price for it's 283 gr volume.I prefer tube packagings and this one,wasn't even sealed.there's no expire date on the packaging which makes it look even more unprofessional.it has fragrance,well,it smells nice,a fresh floral scent and as a perfume junkie,it's scent doesn't bother me at all but I have a super sensitive skin and I prefer scentless skincare products
It has a creamy texture,not watery and fluid like,not very thick and oily,it's something in between.I like how it easily spreads on skin and absorbs well.I also like how it feels on skin,it doesn't feel heavy but makes my skin moisturized and soft at least for a couple of hours. 5,6 hours after application I can feel my dry patches again but most moisturizer's results completely fade away in less than two,three hours so this one isn't bad in this case.I usually keep it in refrigerator and pick it up with a tiny little spatula and use it on my face,neck and hands.my skin looks plumped after applying it and doesn't feel itchy anymore(I have eczema).I can't comment on it's effect on wrinkles and fine lines as I don't have them yet but my mom also uses it and loves it,she believes it really has positive effects in this case and that her skin looks younger and more firm after going through half of the jar
I like using it as my makeup base.my foundations look less powdery and blend better whenever I have this on my face
I believe it's not enough as being the only moisturizer for super dry skins,it's better suited for normal to dry ones.people with oily skin may prefer something oil free and lighter
as someone with super dry skin I like it as my daily moisturizer but I usually blend it with a drop of face oils or apply this to my whole face and put something very thick and heavy like QV Intense cream(it has Vaseline-like texture) only on my dry patches
It contains Mineral Oils which made me concerned as products that have mineral oils usually clog my pores.fortunately it didn't break me out but I wash my face daily with a mild cleaner and use 7th Heaven Strawberry Cream scrub or ST.Ives Oatmeal Scrub once a week.I'm pretty sure if I miss these steps for a week,it can cause acne
All in all I like it,but I don't love it.it's texture and effect on skin reminds me of Bioderma Autoderm(the one that comes in pump packaging) which has been my daily moisturizer for years,that one has much better packaging and is scentless but is slightly more expensive(it's 8$, 200mil)
I haven't decided on repurchasing because I don't think I will run out of it in near future

Love love the smell of this. It has soft scent and not overpowering. It leaves my skin fresh and soft. The only reason I give this 4 star out of 5 is because of the price (not really inexpensive in my country) and the packaging. It would be nice of it came with a pump 1 or 2L bottle.

Don't buy unless you want to break out. There are better ways to exfoliate. If you have acne prone skin - absolutely do not use this. Your acne will multiply the very next day.

I wouldn’t recommend this product for dry skin. It’s pretty lightweight, and even after applying a thick layer of it, my skin went right back to feeling parched and rough. In the positives column, it’s one of the very few moisturizers to not break me out. (I have extremely acne-prone skin.) It absorbs quickly and comes in a giant tub for under $5.

I have been using this scrub every other day for about 2 weeks or so. I bought it because I was looking for a scrub to remove flaky skin around my nose. This one was on sale for $4.99 so I didn't have a lot to lose if it didn't work out. So far I really love it. Not only did it remove the flaky skin on my nose but also noticeably reduced my blackheads as well, something I didn't expect it to do. My face feels softer too. The scrub is very gentle and has a light scent. I read reviews that said after the first few times using this product that they had some small bumps. I did too but only very minor, nothing that concerned me. I'm really happy I bought this product. It was exactly what I was looking for, and you can't beat that price!

I am on my 3rd batch. I enjoy this moisturizer so much! My skin has been dry this winter and I enjoy adding this moisturizer to my make up routine and night time regimen. I feel that for the price you really cant beat this! I do like to add a little drop of rose oil for added moisture. Definitely worth giving it a try!
