If I were to use any scrub it would be this one! I am not big into exfoliating but this scrub isn't to harsh and feels good against the skin. Also, the smell is great!

I've been using this product for about 2 weeks now and so far sooo good! I really like it alot. I tried a lot of products in the past and only a few seem to work I also love the smell of it!

Generally I find that I cannot use any type of facial cleansing products, because they'll break my skin out worse than before I started using the product. This scrub is amazing for me, after you're done your skin is super soft and my skin started clearing up after a few washes. Everyone's skin type is different, so I recommend trying a trial size of it first. Love this though.

When I was younger I loved this stuff! However trying it again recently I was not really impressed. It still smells great but the exfoliations are rough and don't feel too nice on your skin.

I've been using the off brand version of this product and love it, one day I decided to splurge and buy this brand and it works the same except for this brand dries my face out extremely bad.

It's kind of a rough exfoliant. I personally prefer the smoothr bubbles for exfoliation. I like the smell, but it's thick a you really have to rinse your face a lot to get it off unless you're carefully using a thin layer.

Absolutely love St Ives. It's so gentle and really works. I used this a lot for my sore skin while I was pregnant. I also get relief from my psoriasis when using this. St Ives is a miracle.
