St. Ives Timeless Skin Renew & Firm Apricot Scrub is a good product for the price. It is great for getting dead skin cells off and deep cleaning. I wouldn't recommend scrubbing too hard , as it can irritate skin or using it everyday. In my case it tends to make my face red, although I use it on rough patches on body and have no problems. My only complaint is I didn't see a difference in my skin as far as firming. It works just the same as the other St. Ives scrubs. But I only used one tube so maybe it takes more to see a difference in the firming part of the claims. It is still a good product and I would recommend it.
