This product is a great way to get smoother skin on the body. In the past I was an avid fan of Origins Spice Odyssey Foaming Scrub. I used it for years until they discontinued it. The price tag for Spice Odyssey was $27.50. Still, I was definitely a happy customer because the product delivered all that it promised. Trying to find a replacement has been more like a treasure hunt that hasn't produced any bounty. I've tried several scrubs that have been oil-based (and even made a few of my own scrubs with various oils and salts). I didn't care at all for the slick coating the oils from these products left on my skin and shower stall walls. Kiehls has a gentle exfoliating grapefruit scented scrub that comes in a flip-top tube (stored on end in the shower, which, in my opinion, is easier to work with with wet hands). This scrub fit the bill as far as product satisfaction (it's cream based and smells great) but has a price tag of $28.00. So I thought I would try St Ives Apricot Body Scrub, a drugstore brand, for comparison ($5 to $7 dollars, depending on where you get it). A body scrub's main role is to slough off dead skin cells from the skin. Many higher priced body scrubs promote all kinds of different ingredients that promise to "help" your skin. Of course, these ingredients usually mean a more expensive product. I'd much rather buy a really good body moisturizer to follow a body exfoliation than pay for ingredients that rinse off immediately after application and go down my drain.St Ives has a pleasant smell. The exfoliating granules are neither too small or too large-they're just right to get the job done. The one thing I think could be improved upon is the packaging. Having a screw-top means that inevitably water will be introduced into the jar when you open it to get to the product. I much prefer flipping a top open and squeezing out any product I need from a flip-top tube.

This is great value - the scrub is a good consistency, easy to spread but with enough 'scrub' in the shell particles for dry elbows, knees etc. Scent is nothing special, fruity, but doesn't linger, and scrub rinses easily to leave skin soft and ready for moisturiser or fake tan. Performs better than some much more expensive brands and the tub is compact and practical. Also contains no mineral oil. I'd recommend it!

This is a good scrub. I do tend to use a lot for my whole body and so it doesn't last too long, but in general a nice body scrub.

I have gone through so many of these already. It is such an affordable and effective exfoliating scrub. It helps prevent clogged pores and ingrown hairs. Another excellent product by St. Ives.

HOLY WOW! Read the reviews on here, decided to go for it. Was 3 bucks at Walmart. The smell is EXCELLENT, and exfoliating and AHHH... I keep recommending this scrub to people - I love finding affordable brands like this that have no idea how much they are really worth!

I love this product! I don't break out but I have very dry skin and I find st. ives keeps it clean and baby soft. I'm also in love with the smell, not really apricot-y at all but so good! Not too expensive (got it at cvs for $3) and I'm on my 3rd tube!
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
