I love using thins Cream! Its one of the few products that work with my skin and gets rid of most blackheads. It smells great and makes your skin feel nice and clean.

Love St Ives, been using this product for years. I absolutely love it. Its definitely something that can be used everyday. Personally, I love using it in the morning right after I wake up.

I find that this is my holy grail face cleanser. It always works for me even when I have not used it in several months. The price is ALWAYS better than other brands.

I've been using this since I was 13 (22 now). Great scrub, but don't use it everyday or it can be irritating. I usually use it once a week for a good deep cleaning.

St Ives Apricot Scrub is awesome. I love that it is a natural exfoliant and is very inexpensive. It works great with my sensitive skin because it exfoliates without being too harsh. Would definitely recommend to everyone!

I use this about twice a week and it works great for my face. I wouldn't use it everyday because it can harm your skin but a good product to use every once an awhile.

I remember being a teen and my mom buying this for me to use and ever since think have been using it. Now I still go get other scrubs but this one is by far the best.

While this product is super inexpensive, I wouldn't suggest for anyone to use it more than 1-2x a week, because it is just so harsh on the skin! It might work better for "backne" or for a deep exfoliation for the body..
