Love the way this stuff leaves my skin feeling. So soft and smooth. My boyfriend got me into using this, and now I need to repurchase it. Don't leave the cap off, it will definitely dry out.

It worked great for a little bit, but sadly after about three or four months I began having acne again and despite continued use for over a year it never cleared like it was in the beginning.

Simple, tried and true skincare. St Ives is my go-to everyday facial cleanser/scrub. Very gentle on the skin and packaging is appealing. This product is effective. Would recommend to others.

This is my holy grail when it comes to exfoliating. It smells good, gets rid of dead skin and all that nasty stuff you don't need on your face. Of course I recommend it! It gets the job done.

I have been using this scrub for probably 20 years and it has seen me through breakouts, dry patches, oily skin, uneven skin tone, you name it. This scrub is really the gold standard for me because it’s always been just what I need in a weekly exfoliator and the price is so reasonable. Plus, you can find it ANYWHERE.

This product is amazing and very good for my skin type. It’s very harsh but is very effective. It’s very cheap but it works very well. My skin type is oily and it has improved since using this daily, i’m very glad i️ bought this and i️ will continue to do so.
