It has cleaned my face superbly and left me feeling richly moisturized and slightly exfoliated. The microbeads are somewhat annoying because they are so small, and if you dont rinse well enough-hard to pick off. It has yet to do anything to clear up my skin but I believe that is keeping my face clean and protected from future break outs. A- St. Ives!

I really like this cleanser! It keeps my face looking radiant and really does help my combination skin. The price is under $3 I think...amazing! It's a gentle enough cleanser so my skin won't dry out or get irritated, but it has SA in it to help with blemishes. Perfect for me.

This is a great exfoliating cleanser for its price. I find that it's not the best at removing eye makeup (also bc I don't want to use the beads to close to my eyes). But it definitely made my skin feel fresh and soft after using it in the morning when I don't have makeup on. And did I mention the awesome price?

Despite the not-so favorable reviews, I really love this product. My face gets nice and smooth with consistent use. It smells nice as well. Been using this for a year now and it hasn't given me any problems at all. Will definitely repurchase since I'm going to run out soon.

The beads don't do much to exfoliate my skin. My face feels nice and clean but it doesn't feel DEEP clean, since this products seems way too gentle and light. I think I'll just go back to the orginal apricot scrub, it's a little more hardcore when it comes to deep cleaning and the beads actually work.

At first, I did like this product but I found that this cleanser often leaves a residue over my face, and make my skin slightly oilier. The beads are not really exfoliating (what are they suppose to do exactly??).
Although it's gentle and not irritating, and did not aggravate my acne, it still leaves an unpleasant, greasy film. An overall average cleanser that I would not really recommend unless you want a sticky feeling all over your face.
Usually I am not too fond of St.Ives products, I should have stayed away from this one too but I was curious... I will use it up but I won't be purchasing this Apricot Radiance Cleanser again.

This cleanses okay, but I hate the little beads in it, they do nothing in the way of exfoliation and get everywhere, esp if I use it in the shower, then they get all in my hair, blech. Smells nice and fresh but there are better things in the St. Ives line to use. I'd stay away from this one.

Tried this after my GF convinced me foaming cleansers were pure evil and that I should use a cream cleanser in spite of my oily, acne-prone skin. Though this seemed to fit the bill and I generally love St. Ives products (see my review on their Tea Tree deep cleanser), sadly it gave me bumps. It seems to cleanse well, but I found the microbeads annoying, and I just can't hang with something that breaks me out (even if free from evil).

I like this facial cleanser because it doesn't create a foam which is a plus as soap ingredients are kinda bad. The smell is decent though it smells strong outside the packaging. Scared me at first till I tried it. The exfoliating beads is very delicate. This cleanser very much suits combination and sensitive skin. I have both. Overall a good purchase. Will definitely purchase again.

This is a wonderful cleanser for combo skin. At first, I was a little nervous at the exfoliating texture - sometimes my skin needs that, sometimes (during its winter dry phases) my skin finds that harsh. But this exfoliates very gently, kindly enough for daily use. Cleanses thoroughly and leaves skin smooth and soft. AND it's less than $4, which is awesome considering my favorite drugstore cleanser up to now, Neutrogena Extra Gentle, goes for about $10 in NYC! Unfortuntately, since we've moved I no longer pass the drugstore where I purchased this and can't find it nearby. But rest assured I'm looking for a new source... :)

I actually LOVED this product while using it for 2 weeks, but later realised that it was the cause of my breakouts. 2 days after i switched back to my trusted clean & clear deep action cream cleanser my skin was completely clear. I LOVED the smell though and i wish that i could love it. I have normal skin and when i bought this cleanser i realised that they didn't have the one for normal to dry skin, so i went with the combination one. That could be where i went wrong. this cleanser has a pretty good price for only 6-7$canadian. I usually swear by st.ives products so this was a real shocker.

I am a big fan of St Ives products, I think they are really effective and great value for money and I love the ingredients that they use in their products. I think you would be hard pushed to find an equivalent range retailing at the prices St Ives products do.
I just got this the Apricot Radiance Deep Cleaning Creme Cleanser last week and I've only used it a few times so far as it can't be used to take off eye make up so I usually just use it in the shower. So I can't really comment on what it has done for my skin with regular use as yet but I do kind of like it anyway. It has a nice smell, a pleasant texture, the microbeads are not too abrasive but do provide a bit of exfoliation, although this is definately not a facial scrub.
Oh an yeah my skin did look a bit brighter after using it I suppose. not an "Oh my god!" difference like I get after I have had a facial peel at the salon and not even as bright as my skin looked after I used the microdermabrasion scrub Avon made. But then as I said before this is most definately a Deep Cleaning Cleanser and not a scrub and not intended to be so I can forgive that.
It leaves my face feeling nice and tingly and clean but I find it a bit annoying that it doesn't foam as when I use a facial wash normally I am used to a foaming one. I know that the ones that don't foam are actually generally better for your skin but still it is pyschological.
So I am taking off 1 lippie for that plus another lippie for the fact that you can't use this anywhere near your eye area and so have to use a separate eye make up remover prior to using this.
All in all this is a fairly decent cleanser though, not spectacular mind but nice for the price and I would buy again.

I have sensitive/ acne prone skin and I was told by my dermatologist that I needed to start using a deep cream cleanser three days a week to help unclog my pores and take out any trapped oil. I was really surprised at how wonderful this cleanser was, I love the rich texture and its gentleness. So far I'm loving this as it takes off my makeup and deep cleanses without stripping. I actually like the fact that it doesn't foam since foaming cleansers don't do as a good job at deep cleansing as cream ones (they penetrate deeper). I don't use this everyday since I have sensitive skin thats easily irritated but so far I'm loving the results! Got to try this if your looking for a deep cleanser that cleans without stripping!! :)

Wow! I think this is about the best drugstore cleanser I've used and it also happens to be the least expensive! I'd read good things about it (here on on other beauty boards) but wasn't sure it would work on my sensitive skin. I'm now a believer! I have combo skin and after washing my face my skin feels perfectly balanced. The T-zone is oil-free and the drier parts of my face are soft. The microbeads aren't plentiful but if I wash a good 2-3 minutes it does seem to exfoliate pretty well. Yay St. Ives!

I don't like this at all, except for the scent. The little beads were annoying and the cleanser itself was very hard to wash off, I literally had to scrub my face off to remove this. But then since my face wasn't completely free of this stuff, it'd dry out and look dull, not attractive. Didn't remove makeup well, the little beads were too harsh, didn't help prevent blemishes.

I have dry sensitive skin that has been looking a bit dull lately. I picked this up from the drugstore while getting an RX filled recently. This cleanses my face and removes my make-up easily. I LOVE how soft and smooth my face feels after I use this. It cleanses well but without stripping my skin. I love this and will be buying it again when I run out.

I usually use foaming cleansers but my skin was getting dehydrated from my acne meds and the cold weather so I decided to try a cream cleanser instead. I've been using this for about 2.5 months now and while I wouldn't say it's my holy grail, I do like it enough to repurchase if another cleanser doesn't catch my eye in the meantime. This cleanser does a good job of keeping my skin from getting dried out. My face feels refreshed after washing because of the slight tingly sensation. The exfoliating beads leave my skin feeling so soft, but I also find them a bit annoying. The beads don't rinse clean for me sometimes and I find them stuck along my hairline, or worse, in my eye - ouch! Perhaps I'm just used to foaming cleansers, but I find I have to use more than a small amount of this to cover my whole face. I'm almost done with my tube so I guess one lasts about 3 months for me. That's ok since the price is great. The squeeze tube is also convenient for traveling.
EDIT: I've had persistent clogged pores on my forehead for awhile and I finally realized that this cleanser was making it worse. I recently switched to something else and my forehead bumps have gone away a bit (although not completely). I guess this cleanser breaks me out. :(

I have used St. Ivess apricot scrub and liked it; so I decided to try this cream cleanser. This face wash is pretty creamy and not harsh at all. The apricot scent is very light...not as I expected it to be. I am not too satisfied with this cleanser as I don't notice anything different about my skin. Though, it did not leave me with negative results. I would not repurchase because it did not do anything for my face.

This is a cream cleanser, no harsh scrubbers, only small blue round beads. Too few beads to do actually any scrubbing. However, it does remove makeup well, rinses clean without a greasy film, and keeps skin from feeling too dry. I'd use it as a cream cleanser, but really I need more scrubbing. THIS IS NOT SCRUBBY, hardly at all. The beads are few and far between. I guess that's part of it's gentle appeal. WAY better than any creamy cleansers from neutrogena though, which always feel too oily and don't rinse clean.
