I love this scrub! I use it everyday in the shower I love how it scrubs my face and leaves it soft and clean. Plus it's also one of the only scrubs that I'm not allergic too. And I like that it's not super expensive like most scrubs.

I've been using St. Ives for YEARS. I love all of their scrubs, but this one is super effective for helping clear up acne. St. Ives scrubs are a staple in my daily regimen.

I have sensitive skin, so I prefer to use St. Ive's Green Tea Scrub instead. This is the first one I tried though, and it did exfoliate well. It just also felt really rough.
