This is an amazing scrub! It is definitely my go to whenever my acne prone and oily skin starts acting up. I bought mine at Target for under $5 it smells amazing! I would recommend only using it once a week.

Not a bad product but it wasn't amazing for me as it was for some other people. I like the scrub for exfoliation but I didn't experience any brightening or blemish control.

Love the way it washes everything away and leaves my face feeling so smooth and clean. The one thing i don't like about it is, it doesn't help with making my pores smaller.

I use this face was daily. I love it. I keeps my skin clear and clean. I have been using this for going on 10 years and I wouldn't even consider changing to a new product.

I enjoy using scrubs but sometimes I found this one to be a bit too harsh with the large granules it has. Now that I am using my clarisonic, I have stopped using St. Ives.

Only exfoliator I use and if you know what I have been through to find just the right products then you will understand it is that good! Just don't press to hard or it can be rough on your skin.
