This body wash is great! I really love how my skin feels after using it. I have always been a fan of St. Ives's products for many years. This body wash contains beads to help exfoliate the skin. Unlike many scrubs that feel harsh on the skin, this is one feels very gentle. You still get the same smoothing results but without the sandpaper feel on your skin. The smell is a little strong but not unpleasant. If you want a more subtle scent I would suggest buying another product. The smell always wakes me up when I shower in the morning. You don't have to worry about smelling like apricots all day. The scent fades but you still feel fresh and clean. I also like that this product is hypo-allergenic. I don't experience any redness or rash as I have with previous scrubs. This wash has also been great about preventing acne on my shoulders. I experimented with several body washes to find one that would help the problem. This one has worked pretty well. My shoulders have been more clear of breakouts since I started using it. I can't describe in words just how great my skin feels after using this product. I would recommend you try it out for yourself.
