I want to try something from Freeman so I bought this. It's creamy so easy to apply on face and wash away, the smell of apricot is tasty :). But after use this my skin is soft but not as soft as like Chacoal and black suger polishing mask of Freeman.

All freeman products smell so good thats the best thing about them. This scrub is great, not harsh at all, very creamy and smooth.

This scrub is wonderful! I picked this up from the chemist a couple of months ago because I had heard pretty good things about it. I also really like the St Ives Apricot Scrub for blemished skin, but wanted a change in the scrub that I was using. The formula is very creamy, therefore I find you only need a little bit of product to work with, as it is very easy to work all over your face. For me, the product could be a little bit more exfoliating. But it still does a really good job. My face always feels incredibly soft and smooth afterwards, and my skin is left feeling and looking radiant. I love how it feels like you are scrubbing away all the dirt and dead skin cells off your face. It's such a treat for your skin. I use it about 2-3 times a week. Also, it doesn't dry my skin out at all, which is great.


- Comes in a huge tube, will last a very long time
- Smells great
- Very easy to work all over the face
- Makes your skin feel soft, clean and radiant
- Non-drying


I would say the only con for me is that it could be slightly a bit more exfoliating. Otherwise, this is a great product!

At first I was off-put by the excessive creaminess of the product, relative to the seemingly few exfoliating ingredients. For years I had used St. Ives apricot scrub, exclusively. I was skeptical that this scrub would work as well as the other one. That impression didn't last long, though. I soon appreciated that this Freeman Creamy Apricot Scrub, given the finer texture, makes it easier to work in. The super-fine walnut granules make a great mechanical exfoliator.

What I didn't like, and the reason I have to knock a few lippies off the rating, is that the tube and plastic cap, in particular, are cheap and poorly designed. Within the first week, I dropped it and the flip-top lid entirely split off. I've dropped products before but never had them break like that. I turned the tube upside down and left it in my medicine cabinet, still 98 percent full, but now I am concerned it is unsanitary because it is unsealed. In this case the packaging needs to be redesigned to feature less brittle plastic and a wider stance not the tall and narrow profile so prone to tipping over. I formerly applied my St. Ives scrub in the shower, leaving it on a shower rack, but I can't do that with this one because the tall tube perched atop the flimsy plastic cap doesn't stay balanced. Until Freeman redesigns the package, the only way I can make use of this product is with the intent to decant it into an empty cosmetic jar before it has a chance to fall over and break.

This Facial Scrub just wasn't for me. I bought this thinking that it would be very similar to the St.Ives Apricot Scrub but ended up being a bit disappointed. I have been using this for about 2 months now (almost finished the tube) and have found that my face never quite feels exfoliated and its too creamy for my liking (just personal preference I guess)

Not a horrible scrub, just not what I expected after having used St.Ives in the past.

Here's what I liked
- Has a really nice smell
- Gentle (a little too gentle for me)

What I didn't like
- Its scrubbing ability (felt like I was just slathering my face in Apricot scented cream)
- Too creamy (Although it is called "Creamy" Apricot scrub so what could I expect!)

I used to use St Ives apricot scrub years ago but stopped it when I changed up my beauty regime (which was happened many times over the years).

I've actually repurchased this and think it's not too bad--the apricot smell is pleasant and as a scrub it's not too bad. I did find, however, that for an exfoliating scrub it eventually just blocked up my pores more than it cleaned them out. I've switched to using bicarbonate of soda to exfoliate and scrub in the shower and it's much more cheaper and effective, this scrub got a bit too harsh. I've got a full bottle left over so I don't think I will ever repurchase.

I used to use St.Ive's apricot scrub but I found it too gritty and decided to try Freeman's version instead. At first, I wasn't all too crazy about the smell but I got over it. It works fairly well and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean afterwards. For $3 on sale, it does a super job. The packaging is standard squeeze tube. I buy it every time I run out. :3

i love this scrub i was using the st ives one for a few years then i read all the reviews on this scrub and decided to try it out. The squeeze tube is great, there are more granules in it compared to the st ives ones. The st ives one feels more creamy and thick, this one feels like it's more abrasive. my face feels soo much more smoother after using it but it's a pain to get the granules out of my hairline =( but for under 5 bucks cnd it's worth it =)

Like everyone else I LOVE this scrub. I find that St. Ives scrub can burn my skin sometimes but this one never does. It does a better scrub job but is gentler on my skin and I find it smells much better than the St Ives apricot scrub. One more super extra bonus about Freeman Creamy Apricot Scrub they do NOT test on animals.
I like the fact that this product is in a squeeze tube rather than in a jar because I find it less messy and i can control how much I want better with the tube.
I really like all Freeman stuff and I will continue to buy their products because they work, have a fairly natural ingredient listing and don't test on animals.
