I know it doesn't work great for everyone, but this scrub is amazing for me! I use it, along with a Neutrogena one 2 times a week. Neutrogena in the shower, this one over the sink. I love how it makes my face feel and look. Smells good too!

This scrub is a really good exfoliater but it didn't really do anything for my skin. The blemishes and blackheads didn't get any better but they didn't get any worse either. It was great for getting rid of those dry winter skin patches though.

I tried this product and loved it! It has little bead like pieces in it that make it feel "Rough" In texture and really geet deep into the pores this helped a lot with blackheads for me however you shouldnt use it every day as it could irritate the skin but overall its a great product

I use this everyday, it gives my skin a beautiful glow,, that people often ask me what products do I use on my face. I have to say its the one and only face scrub I will continue to use well into my old age.

I must say for how cheap this stuff is its the one i always seem to run back to when the expensive stuff fails me. For under $4 its a great exfoliater and only needs minimal water to create a great lather.

I love the way this scrub feels and actually does help keep my skin clear. The fact that it is by St. Ives, a brand that I've grown to trust, makes it even better. The smell is OK. I've used a couple that are similar that smell a little better but they don't work as well. Use this one!

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
